flip & tumble: a giveaway



    There are a few things that come with me wherever I go. One of them is a little stash of reusable cloth bags made by flip & tumble. Not only do they hold a lot of groceries, but they're great for dirty laundry, beach towels, snacks for a day trip, a night at Grandma's, library books, etc. The kids each have their own and whenever we're going to be in the car for a while they fill it with things to keep them entertained. Cloth bags are a dime a dozen these days, and I've tried several different styles. These ones are, hands down, my favorite. I love that they tuck into the attached pouch, and because it's stretchy they squash up easily. They're also small enough to keep one in my little purse. As we prepare to embark on our journey, these bags are going into the "must pack" pile!


    We took a few of these to Mexico with us last year and they were perfect for our daily walks when we often stopped to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It made me so happy not to be adding more plastic bags to landfills. I made a mental note at that time that these would go with us wherever and whenever we travel. Last fall I won three more of them in a giveaway on flip & tumble's Facebook page. When I told the friendly owner how we planned to use them for travel she generously threw in a few extras so each family member would have their own! She also included a set of their produce bags, which we've found to be useful as handy storage for Legos, electronic cords, and more when we're on the move.

    I ended up with a few more bags than we really need and would love to share them with someone else. I have two fantastic flip & tumble bags to giveaway, so leave a comment and I'll choose two winners next week. Please make sure you can be contacted so I can find out where to send your bag! I'll ship anywhere in the US or Canada.

    Do you have a favorite product that you don't leave home without? I'd love to hear about it.

    I want one!! I'm always leaving the Trader Joe bags at home. I gave up on bringing my own bags, but this is a cute idea! :) Add me to the drawing pile! ;)

  9. I don't leave home without a burt's bees lip balm. I know, so exciting. I have been thinking about making my own bags, but well, I'm not crafty in that way!

    I love these...such bright colors.... and so convenient! You find so many clever items.... these seem much sturdier than the little nylon bag I won at the fair a couple years ago. Don't feel obliged to choose me... I know, put all the names in a hat, and one of the children can (OR TWO) can pull a name out! Sometimes that makes it easier .... :) Joanna J.

  11. These bags look great, and nice colors, too! As our family grows to four children, the grocery trip has grown as well. I always seem to be a few bags short with my reusable bags... just haven't gotten around to buying a few more. I'd be grateful for them, for sure :-)

  13. These are lovely! I can usually be found with a basket at my side. I carry them everywhere and am always filling them with the next project. :) In fact, I must head out with my basket now and fill it with plums for Market.

    They look so fun with the brightness of color. Thank you. And even though we have never met, I've enjoyed your blog for a long while and look forward to reading about your new direction. We are also Orthodox and had a lovely visit some years ago at both of the Eugene churches.
