Some years ago, our morgue stored stock tissues in sealed bags. These were actually the stronger plastic bags that are heat-sealed closed (much thicker plastic than the style of bags you were speaking of).  After some time, (~2-3 yrs), the seams of the bags weakened and leaked all over, especially if they were stored piled on top of each other.  It was disappointing as we were running out of room too. 
Additionally, we have found that  plastic containers that are stored one on top of another, the weight of the top container will finally crack the lid below and the NBF evaporates. 
I also would like to hear what others are doing for successful long termed preservation of tissues besides using glass jars!
