My New Bag

I wanted to share something new with you all. I’ve written before about our recycling and efforts to do more to do our part. So I wanted to show you my new favorite thing in this vein. Brit Boy and I have quite a few reusable bags that we carry with us to the stores. They are mostly utilitarian and not that cute. (smile) So when I saw this bag a few weeks ago, I just had to have it. Hey, a girls’ gotta have a bit of style with her consciousness too. (wink) Here it is. It is stored in this little pouch, about the size of a sunglasses case, with a snap at one end and a loop at the other.



The loop is very handy so you can attach it to your purse or shopping cart. Or you can just store the bag in your purse.











The snapped end opens and this is where you pull the bag out. Once you unsnap it, you tug on the cord and the bag comes out.



When you pull it out, it’s inside out. Then you just turn it over to the correct side and then bam, you’re ready to go!





It has a nice looped handle and it makes this bag a breeze to carry. The bag expands very wide, so you can get lots of stuff in there. And since it’s sort of teardrop-shaped it has a nice hang to it. The fabric moulds to the shape of whatever you have in the bag.

This is not a paid post. I just really wanted to share the news about this great bag. (smile) I did a bit of research and found that you can get this bag on Amazon at this link here if you’re interested.

Now I’ve got to go and put my cute little bag back in the car. (smile) Happy shopping!

I've got a couple of bags like this and I love them. Now all I need to do is remember to have them with me when I'm shopping.

How cute, Dori :o)
We have a couple of sturdy, linen, ordinary looking bags that we use for shopping. But yours is quite fashionable ;o)

That is rather cute...I've got a tote made of recycled Caprisun containers...proceeds from the sale goes to help those in need. Consciously stylish...I'm with you.

Cool bag and thanks for doing your part at loving and protecting our wonderful planet! I recycable bags for shopping as well and have seen this little bags at the Health Food Stores. Now, I'm ready to buy one.

Your demonstration of how the bag works reminded me of a catepillar transforming into a butterfly! Isn't that something????

Happy Love Thursday!

Happy weekend,

Kate,
I know what you mean. I've had to get into the habit of taking them with me to the store :-)

Heidi,
Isn't it cute :) I'm glad that I could share this cutie with you all. Have a great weekend.

Ooh, I love the Caprisun tote idea. How cool. And I really love that the proceeds give back...that's incredible. You have a wonderful weekend :)

Yep, I just love pulling out my new favorite bag and loading it up. I'm so easily amused. LOL. Have a great weekend :)

Glad you like my bag. Yeah, I find that as I've learned more, and think about it all, recycling and things like that really make me feel like I'm helping, especially when I look at our beautiful world. Have a great weekend! :)

Vchelle,
Glad to hear that you are doing your part too :) Yeah, I love this little bag. It expands a lot when you open it out. And I love the image of the butterfly...so true. From now on when I open my bag I'll think of that. You have a wonderful weekend :)

Duni,
Thanks SO much for the award :) I will be picking it up and passing it along. Your bag sounds very much like mine...they open up bigger than they seem don't they. You have a happy weekend too :)

I saw those for sale and they are very interesting. We just switched to grocery totes but they aren't as practical as the one you use.
