Reisenthel Review & Giveaway- closed

I have talked before about how I am trying to change my ways and become more “green”. In trying to change I would like to use reusable bags every time I grocery shop or buy anything really. Maybe I should set my goals a little lower… how about 75% of the time? I made this goal oh let’s say a year or so ago. I know it was sometime after Natalie was born. I bought the bags from Meijer and vowed that I would use them when I went grocery shopping. I would bring them in the house to unpack and then forget them. With both hands full of baby or baby gear I would walk into the store and remember my bags were at home! I really couldn’t find a good way to get in the habit. Even when they did make it to my car I would get in the store and to the checkout and realize they were in my car, with a baby and a full cart there is no way I’m running back outside.

In my search to the solution for this problem I came across Reisenthel. I love the look of their bags, but I knew that I wanted to try the Mini Maxi Shopper L. It looks like a great size to carry enough groceries but the feature that I really loved about it is that it comes with it’s own carrying pouch! When you are done using it you just fold it back up and put it in the pouch. It’s small enough to throw it in your diaper bag or purse so you don’t have to worry about forgetting it!



Some of the features of the Mini Maxi Shopper L from their site:
*Can be packed into separate pouch
*2 long carrier handles, can also be used as shoulder straps
* Available in over 15 colours and pattern variations
* Volume 18 liters= 4.75 Gallons
* Capacity Max 15 kg= 33 pounds!

One thing that I was worried about with the carrying pouch is that it wouldn't fit back in there. If you have ever used a sleeping bag or tent, you know that you can never fold them back the way they came out and they don’t go back. Well with these you don’t have to fold them perfect they just slide right back in. I was very impressed with that. I have a toddler I don’t have time to stand there and fiddle with a bag trying to get it to go back.

I really love these bags, I need to order more so that I can keep 1 in the car, 1 in the diaper bag and 1 in Hubby’s truck.

Reisenthel also has many other great bags. I would also love to try the Loopshopper L, it looks like it would hold a ton of groceries!
