|Examples of some of the snack bags|
When I tried to think of things to give away for this little Holiday Bash I tried to think of tings that I myself had purchased and absolutely loved. And trust me folks, the reusable snack bags from The Threadbarestitcher on Etsy are some items I can not live without anymore.
Not only do reusable snack bags save you money from having to buy plastic snack bags and thus save them from going into the landfill, but also they are just SO convenient. Honestly? Since my daughter has school three days a week and insists on gold fish for her snack every single day at school, I just plain add more crackers to the bag when she gets home, throw a juice box into her bag and voila! Ready for school the next day. And I don't have to worry about a bag coming out of her backpack all munged up and holy from riding in it and crackers mush going all over her backpack :).
Not only are these bags great for stopping some of the massive amounts of garbage we produce and are tougher than your typical snack bag, BUT they are also SUPER cute! No joke, every single person who sees my daughter's or son's snack bags at school ask me about them and tell me how cute they are. When I also tell them were I bought them and how reasonably priced they are they are completely blown away!
Anyone who buys reusable snack bags for their kids KNOWS the price tag that usually attaches itself to them. Well, the best thing about The Threadbarestitcher is that the bags are GREAT quality (lined with food grade nylon and not just a cloth bag), but they are also REALLY reasonably priced. Most bags start at 2.50 on her shop and if you buy more than one bag the shipping gets downright cheap. She also has specials where if you buy like 10 snack bags you get 2 free. You can get 12 snack bags for less than 30.00 shipped to your door! Now THAT'S great pricing in my book :).
The shop also carries a lot of other great items like Coffee Cozies (I love the frog one :) for less than 5.00 shipped...
Flour and Sugar Bag Sets that will hold 5 lbs of flour or sugar with chalk board fabric tags so you can label them. Talk about CUTE! These are less than 15.00 for the set shipped!
And (to me) here's one of the cutest things that she makes. This is on my personal list for me for Christmas *laugh*...
Reusable Bread Bags this one goes for less than 10.00 shipped!
And remember folks, those prices are IF you don't order more than one item. If you do a lot of things go down to .25 per item after your first item for shipping costs. How awesome IS that???
Okay, okay I'm done oozing now :). Seriously though this is one of my favorite Etsy shops of all time (and I'm a serious Etsy nut) and can't say enough good about the products or customer service.
When Denise, the owner of The Threadbarestitcher offered to give away 10, yes TEN, reusuable snack bags as part of my giveaway bash for you folks I was through the roof excited! The winner will get to choose which ten bags they want from her shop, which was even cooler to me!
