I love eating cucumber and carrots. I always seem to have a snack bag full of them with me, especially in the car. Having healthy munchies near by always saves me from hitting a fast food joint for junk food when I'm out and about.
I was starting to feel guilty about all the plastic baggies I was going through due to my veggie habit and thought there must be a more economical, earth friendly way of going about this. That's when I found these awesome reusable snack bags from "It's a Ten" Specialty Creations! I ordered a sandwich size and snack size in the Michael Miller Carnival Bloom pattern.

Since Tami (the owner of It's a Ten) lives close to me, I was able to pick these up in a few days. They're gorgeous!

They're made of high quality cotton fabric that is lined with a ripstop, water resistant nylon. They also have a great velcro closure that extends from end to end to keep your goodies nice and secure. And the best thing about these, you can throw them in the washing machine! Nice :-)

I think these would be great for those of you with children. You could buy each child their own set in their own colors. They would be great for lunches (just make sure they don't throw them away) or snacks in the car.
Or, for those of us that are trying to lose a little weight, use them to pack up healthy snacks before jumping in your car or going to work. It's easier to stay on track when you're not tempted by all the junk food out there.
Either way, we should all be trying to use less one time use/disposal items. Quit using plastic baggies, save some money and help save the planet!
