I'm diggin' these bags


I posted about them before
But now that I'm using them I have to say they are pretty sweet.
The drawstring is really the selling point for me. It's so much easier than knotting or trying to find a twist-tie.

I just need to pick up a second pack because when I'm at the store I use them up in no time.

P.S. The first time I used them I even got bag credits for them.

Thanks for posting about these... I always wondered if they really work.

Tena Lynn said...

Thank you!! I need those.

Lex said...

Thank you! Can you tell us where you find them?

Beth said...

If you have a Dollar Tree/Dollar Store nearby, you can get mesh drawstring bags 3/$1. They're washable and reuseable. Mesh laundry bags that are for your "delicates" work well, too. They have zippers instead of drawstrings.

Abigail said...

I bought some! Thanks!

Whole Foods sells the bags.

Jenea said...

Cool bags! Only vitamins, bravo!

Jenea said...

It is a pity that in my country don't sale these bags :(

Topanga said...

Are the made of a mosquito netting type of stuff? I've never seen them. What I really want is a bag that breathes but has a small enough mesh that fruit flies can't land on what's inside it. So if I have a bunch of bananas hanging on the banana hanger on the kitchen counter, I'd be able to cinch a breathable bag over them but still keep the fruit flies off. It's gotten to the point that I don't even buy fresh fruit in the summer time anymore. The swarms of fruit flies just grossed me out too much. I suppose the fruit flies would still hang around the bananas if they were in a breathable bag, but at least they wouldn't be on them, eating on them, pooping on them and laying eggs and whatever all else fruit flies do. Same goes with bowls of fresh fruit like peaches, pears and apples. Fruit fly magnets. I hate eating fruit when I know there's been flies pooping on it even though I do wash them well. It's just a turn off.

I've looked for them here in town, but our two little dollar stores havne't got them yet..

StefVajapey said...

Wow, Topanga. Way to ruin fruit for everyone! Jorge, kudos for helping the environment. Long time lurker who loves your sense of humor and, of course, a huge Lost fan. Keep up the good work!

Joan Crawford said...

Oh, Sweet Topanga, not to make it worse, but, the fruit fly eggs are already on the fruit you buy. There is no escape! Yum!

Jorge,

Bag credits? Only in America!

Abigail said...

Topanga--perhaps cheesecloth would work for you? Or unbleached cotton sewn into bags?

Movie Star Wife said...

I have a message for you from my 7 year old. She said to say hi to you and, "tell him I watch his show LOST and I like him a lot." How cute is that?

Jodi said...

I'm liking them too! Maybe I'll pick up a bunch of them. It will be my effort to go green.

Topanga said...

LOL! Joan Crawford I know because I inhale swarms of the wee buggers when I stroll through the produce section of my local supermarket. It makes me feel like John Coffey in "The Green Mile".

Melissa said...

I just bought two sets of the bags from http://washableproducebags.com/.

Looks like they'll ship internationally.

Whole Foods is at least 40 mins away in Warwick(ok, not that far but I'd have to cross *two* bridges {sarcasm} - if you lived on Aquidneck Island you'd understand)

María said...

Jorge!! You are the best in Lost!
You are magnific actor.
I love Lost is my favourite tv program.
Do an amazing job.
Goodbye!

Sebastian said...

Could somebody tell a guy from Germany what "bag credit" is?

Is that if you bag your produce or for every item and what is actually credited?

I know it's a technicality but we don't have people who bag your items over here and nobody would even think about crediting you anything for bagging your stuff yourself so I was wondering what this means in case I visit the US again so I know what to expect. Thanks :-)

THANK you. Every time I go in to the store with my green bags, I wonder why there aren't green bags for the produce. Apparently there are and I'm not as brilliant or innovative as I thought, but happy nonetheless. LOL

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
