Responsible and Cute




Okay, I hope everyone had a lovely Earth Day yesterday. (and I hope Ellen had a great birthday!) The weather wasn't particularly great here so I didn't get to do anything outdoors for Earth Day. But I did get to try a delicious Portuguese restaurant. It's hard to be a foodie AND a Weight Watchers dieter.


Anyway, I just found out about this new website from the ever-fabulous Hostess with the Mostess and I thought I'd share it with you. It's called Delight.com and every day at noon they offer a new item that is only available for 24 hours. There is usually a small discount involved as well. This appeals to the shopper and bargain hunter in me. The site also provides a 30-day store with lots of cute things. I was immediately attracted to the totes above. The five totes by Envirosax come in their own pouch and are meant to be used in place of plastic grocery bags. What a great idea! I ordered some immediately. Now, I can be fashionable AND environmentally-friendly.

I love those bags and am really tempted to get them. I'm so tired of having an overabundance of shopping bags.

Aren't they cute?! Each one is supposed to replace two plastic grocery bags. It's a bit of an investment since they come out to almost $7 a bag but if you used them over and over...

I gave in: I really want to work hard at not creating waste, and we have enough plastic bags already. Why does the store have to put a gallon of milk in a bag? It already has a handle. These were too cute to pass up.

Half Price Books is around the corner from us. I love being able to stop by on a regular basis.

I'll think of you every time I use them!!! We'll be bag ladies together!

Very cool! I've noticed that there is a plastic bag plague in the natural world - bags flapping from trees and fences. It's nutty. I'll have to get some of those. Hope they won't mind at Walmart because that's just about the only place I shop.
