Dowdy no more: The reusable grocery bag
Can't really bring yourself to buy one of the grocery store's ugly reusable bags? Here's a fun solution, ripstop nylon bags
from Baggu. They come in every color of the rainbow, plus some striped and neon styles. They're 15 inches wide and 25 inches high (including handles), they fold flat into a 5-by-5-inch pouch, so you can always have them with you. Each holds 50 pounds or the equivalent of "two to three bags of stuff." Plus, they're machine washable.
The price is great, $8 each or three for $7.50 each. Buy six or more and the price drops to $6.50. Special prints from the fashion label Mociun are $12. Also, if you're thinking in terms of gifts, three color-coordinated bags in a drawstring bag go for $22; five in a bag are $35. Shipping is a flat-rate $5.
