reduce, ReUsies, and recycle

It doesn't take very long into "mommyhood" for you to learn the importance of always having snacks on hand.  A ten minute drive in the car can turn into the longest trip ever if your kid is having a meltdown from hunger.


With so much stuff in our diaper bag sandwich bags have been the best use of space for us, but I was feeling a bit guilty about how many of those little plastic bags were ending up in the trash.  I came across ReUsies while searching for a reusable snack bag replacement. 

ReUsies come in a Sandwich Size and a Snack Size and have so many design options it's easy to find a designs that everybody will love (over 40 designs for each size listed in their shop right now).  ReUsies are fabric bags with a liner that makes them great for use with crackers, sandwiches and cookies but also 'wet' items like fruits or cut up veggies.

I also love the fact that there are multiple ways to clean your ReUsies.  You can wash them by hand with a soapy sponge, turn them inside out and throw them in the washer or use the dishwasher to clean them!  What other reusable bag lets you do all that?

GET YOUR OWN!!!  Visit the ReUsies Shop to stock up on your own ReUsies Sandwich Size and Snack Size bags, or pick out a two-pack in your favorite design and get one of each!

WIN YOUR OWN!!! ReUsies is going to give one lucky SIMPLE reader a Sandwich Size and Snack Size Bag!  To enter just visit the ReUsies website and come back to tell us your favorite design (I'm a big fan of the Eco Chick Snack Bag pictured above).
