I'm a Winner with Birdy's Boutique

You've probably noticed by now, that this month has been different from ones in the past. I've gotten several opportunities to share great holiday gift ideas and giveaways on my blog, and changed my content a little bit to accomodate them as the holiday season approaches. Besides the ones I've posted on I also wanted to highlight one I was lucky enough to win!

I got a pretty eco friendly reusable bag that I won from my friend Steph's giveaway from Etsy seller Birdy's Boutique. Look how nicely it came, wrapped all pretty! It was so hard to choose from all the pretty fabrics but I finally settled on this pretty one that coordinates so nicely with my favorite Vera Bradley bag. I've been using it a lot since getting it. It's big enough to fit two whole apples cut up into slices inside, so it's quite roomy! ER's been getting compliments when we're out running errands and people see her sitting in the shopping cart eating out of it. As you can tell from the top picture, it's also great for bring snacks in the car too.

I love knowing I'm doing my part and setting a good example for my daughter. We regularily use plastic containers to tote around our snacks but they are clunky and don't fit well into my smaller bags. I've got to lug around my tote bag. What I love about these reusable bags is that it's so much easier to throw them in my bag and squeeze them into whatever space I've got left.
Here are the product details from one of Birdy's Boutiques listings for a similar bag.

Never use plastic bags for your snacks again! Stylish and colorful snack bag that is environmentally friendly since you can reuse it many times and don’t throw plastic away.

The bag neatly fits sandwiches, pretzels or corn chips, and is equally good for carrot or celery sticks! Never leave home without one! Bags can also be made with a flat bottom, just convo bag with a flat bottom if you prefer, please convo me.

This bag is fully lined with Rip Stop nylon. After each use, simply shake out the crumbs or throw in the washing machine.

Bag measures 7" x 7"
Cotton and nylon
Fully lined
Closes with Velcro at the top

Each one costs just $4.50 and these would be a great practical stocking stuffer and so much better for me than candy! Here's my current favorite.
