The Verde Bag, Not Just for Shopping

You see them in every store - the reusable shopping bags that you can purchase with that store's logo on them. I'll admit, I have tons from our grocery store, and one or two from other places. I found that I use them for everything, not just shopping. The problem is, I hate carrying a grocery store bag everywhere that I go.

Problem solved. The Verde Bag on Etsy has a wonderful variety of shopping totes that are just as beautiful as they are functional. I was given one as a sample and they're super sturdy and oversized. Both of these things are great features when you're shopping. Not only can you use them for just about everything under the sun (while also looking good) but they fold completely flat to stow in the car's glove compartment or under a seat. Those unweildy grocery store bags aren't that easy to work with.


The Verde Bag has a variety of fabric styles to choose from, as well as other bags for purchase. The lunch bag would be great to take to the office or even for the kids for school. In addition there is a gift bag and a wine bag.

GET YOUR OWN!! The Verde Bag is located on Etsy. With every $20 purchase, the owner has generously offered to give a FREE organic cotton produce bag. To use, check out with your $20 (or more!) order and put SIMPLE in the checkout box. The owner herself will get in touch with you to help you choose a produce bag. Go! Shop!

WIN YOUR OWN!! Gina, the wonderful owner of The Verde Bag, has gone above and beyond in her generosity. In addition to giving a FREE organic produce bag with every $20 purchase, she is also giving away a FREE item of your choice. That's any one item that you want from her store! YOUR CHOICE! To enter, please click over to her store, then come back and tell me what you'd love to win.

Winner will be announced Wednesday, October 14.
