*(I was not asked to recommend these by Reusies, I just really liked them and wanted to share.)

proud to share
I am proud to share* these little gems. They are Reusies. I love them! They are reusable bags for snacks/lunches. I had my eye on them for about a year but I wouldn't buy them because they were about $9 a bag. I know, crazy expensive. One morning before school started in August, I was watching Good Morning America (don't you just love that show?!) and they had a deal, if you bought the bags that day, you got them for 50% off using a special code word. OK, I ran to the computer, not kidding, and ordered two bags for everyone who packs a lunch (or will- I had to get some for the babies too!). That basically means, the kids and big tall hubby. Why didn't I get any for myself? I don't know, I like to take a good snack sometimes too! Temporary brain lapse I guess. Anyway, they had tons of orders that day and it took a long time to get them but it was worth the wait. It is so nice to put the kids' snacks in there for school. I feel so good not using plastic baggies for every item in their lunches. I still use some because I do have to wash the Reusies but I know I am making my carbon footprint a teeny bit smaller by not using so many Ziplocks, and I do love my Ziplocks! I bought the larger size to accommodate sandwiches too. You can find them here.
