Shopping with Blue Avocado

Amazingly, I only have two hands but am somehow able to carry way more than I would have thought humanly possible before kids.  You probably do it too, a diaper bag, a purse, a kid (or two!), plus those 'incidentals' that come with running errands or shopping...  I just love to see the faces of non-parents when they see what a balancing act I can manage!

With this being said, I can honestly say that I am always on the lookout for any type of bag or organizational product to make my life easier, especially when running errands.  After using it for about a month I am absolutely in LOVE my new Starter Kit from Blue Avocado!

Besides for the absolutely adorable color (mine came in plum-doodle, pictured left), I just love how sturdy and versatile these bags have been for me.  Having been long-standing member of the 'reusable bag' club from my local grocers, I know that those bags do have a few flaws:
  1. they can't handle as many groceries in one bag as I'd like
  2. they don't fold up very small
  3. they get dirty and you can only surface clean them (Can you say gross?)
My new Blue Avocado bags fix all these problems for me!  No only does the Pak bag from my kit really hold the grocery equivalent of 3 other bags, it folds up so small that I actually still have use of my SUV's cargo space!

Plus the bags are machine washable, so I can throw them in the washer to get clean and not worry about mold, mildew and everyday dirt getting on my food. (Machine washable + me = LOVE)

Another thing I love is that these bags are sturdy!  The Starter Kit alone can hold up to 50 lbs of groceries and I don't have to worry about it ripping open while I'm trekking up two flights of stairs with 2 gallons of milk nestled on the bottom of all my other groceries!
