OK, I do a lot of shopping. I am not going to lie. I have 4 boys and a hubby, and it's like feeding an army. Their appetites are getting bigger and bigger...
So, when I go grocery shopping and I get enough food to feed my small army, I get home and put everything away, and am left with a gazillion plastic bags. Anyone hear what I'm sayin'?
And no, I never just throw them out (unless there is a big tear in it or something). I always use then for a liner in our bathroom trash, or to throw those really stinky baby bombs in... But, the pile usually grows and grows. I actually HATE those bags. I hate that they accumulate so quickly. I hate that the people at the grocery only pack one or two things in each bag. I hate that there just aren't many uses for all of those CRAZY BAGS!
Anybody else with me?
I love having my own reusable bags to take with me to the store. The problem with the 2 that I have, is that they are so big to carry! So I have to tuck them under my arm and hope they don't fall out while I throw my baby up on my hip, and grab my purse and coupons. Oh yeah, then lock the doors of my truck. Then balance all of these very important items in wind/ rain/ sleet/ snow... praying that I won't drop anything...
There is good news in all of this! I have found a WONDERFUL solution! They are called ENVIROSAX! This company has made all other reusable bag companies run home crying to their mamas... (hehehe) Just look at some of their GORGEOUS reusable grocery bags:
Here is mine, it is from the Mikado collection:
Oh, and there is more, MUCH MORE. And they are all as gorgeous as the ones I showed you. It gets even BETTER. They also sell packs of 5 of these beauties, like this:
You wanna know how big this is in actuality? Well, one folded reusable grocery bag folds up, nicely and EASILY into about the size of the palm of your hand (long ways). The bag then expands to a very nice size, probably enough to haul 4-5 big boxes of cereal, with extra room for some small stuff. It could haul lots of smaller boxes and canned items.
I also, keep this folded up in my purse for those "just in case" times. Like at church this Sunday. I took my accordion file folder and Bible with me, along with my purse. Which is no problem... then I get to church and was handed a CD right away. Along with a small stack of papers. I have a wonderful friend who also gets a newspaper for me. And the boys all hand me their wad of projects after class. Now NORMALLY, I have full hands. But I remembered I had the BEAUTIFUL bag in my purse, and so I whipped that puppy out! I filled it with all of my newly found "treasures", and it EASILY accommodated everything. WITH ROOM TO SPARE. I love it.
Have I told you how much I love it? =)
