Packaging for clothes

Quick question - I'd like to sell a few maternity clothes and baby things (grobags etc). I plan to pay for and print off the postage labels from home. What's the best way to package them? Maybe some strong polythene bags, any recommendations on where I can buy some cheaply?

ebay mailing bags, grey are cheapest some brands have a chemical smell, ( pink/purpel blue don't seem to have smell)

alternatively use plastic shopping bags inside out not cheap supermarket free ones but from like M&S or next etc

mailing bags are about £3-5 for 50 depending no size

Ive recently been using poundland ones. spectrum essentials mailbags they are called. you can also write on the front in the space provided. Easier than sticky labels which tend to fall off. Never had complaints either.

I've been packing in large food bags (new ones) with zip closing. If you squeeze all the air out, then put in a normal brown A4 envelope most clothes squash flat enough to go as a large letter.

Mailing bags are quick and easy to use, no fiddling about with tape and you can write on them with a Sharpie. I bought an assorted pack on ebay which I'm still using up after a couple of years.

I really could use some 4 per sheet labels for the print-your-postage thing, I suppose they must be on ebay too...

I pack in zip lock food bags too, and a large envelope.
