I love to research purchases, and in light of my recent post on reusable bags, I decided I would round-up some of the wonderful reusable bags out there. Some of these I have tried and use myself, others are ones I thought were neat! I think the key to remembering to use your bags is having them around, everywhere. I have bags in my car, bags in my diaper bag, bags on the closet door handle, and bags in bags! Grocery shopping is easy because you plan to go and remember to bring the bags. Impromptu shopping means you don’t always plan to bring your bags. That is why I love the selection of compact nylon bags that can be stored in your diaper bag. I always have a Chico bag or other small nylon bag handy! These days there is a ton of variety! I picked a few from DDL affiliate, Amazon.com.
I am starting with my favorite!
ChicoBag Reusable Nylon Bags So these are by far my favorite reusable bags. They are easy to use and compact. I love these more for general shopping because they fit in my purse (I always keep 2 in my diaper bag) They also have a carabener to attach to your bag and a drawstring that can be used to loop around your wrist if you are running into the store. 5.00 each.
flip & tumble 24-7 Reusable Bag– The Flip and Tumble bag is not one I have tried. It is a nylon bag that you can roll up into a ball so it is easy to use. 12.00.
BlueAvocado Reusable Bag– These are very similar to Chico bags, compact and can be stuffed in a small pouch. But they come in really pretty patterns! I am a sucker for that! Haven’t tried them but love this pretty flower pattern. 20.00 for 2.
Reusable Grocery Tote – I have a set of 6 of these canvas grocery totes. When I decided to switch over I knew I wanted non brand specific bags I could use at any store, and a matching set. They fold up nicely and hold a ton! They have a shape so they are easy to load with groceries. I keep them in one bag and have that in my car or hanging from my coat closet door so I never forget them (almost never). These are really the best for groceries! 10.00 for 6.
