Oh Baggu Bag... How I Love Thee
For the holidays last year, my friend Steph bought me 2 Baggu re-usable shopping bags. I have to admit that I did not use them at first. I didn't use any re-usable shopping bags at first. In fact, and I am completely embarrassed to admit this, the idea of hauling my own bags to the supermarket and seeing people with piles of bags in their carts annoyed me to no end. I actually got irritated when I saw people using re-usable bags. I have absolutely no idea why. It was completely counter to my environmental leanings... but anyway...
I have since gotten over this feeling and have embraced the re-usable shopping bag movement. I have a combination of bags that I keep in my car and take shoping with me. Some are canvas LL Bean-like totes, others are the free giveaway conference totes, but my favorite by far are the Baggu bags.
They are made of rip stop nylon, fold un teeny tiny so I can keep them in the diaper bag or even in my purse. The hold a ton of stuff and are easy to load and unload.
The website offers a ton of funky colors and at $8 each (less if you buy three of six at a time) I think they are a good deal. I am thinking of buying a few more for myself and maybe even giving some as gifts/stocking stuffers this holiday season.
