Conserving Now Reusable Bag Review & Giveaway: CLOSED

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Conserving Now! I’ve been given the reusable bags pictured below to review. I absolutely LOVE them!  These are a great quality for a decent price.  I love the fact that they aren’t all flashy with store logos and bright colors.  They are simple, sturdy and sophisticated.

I used them for my Kroger Mega Event run yesterday and can I just tell you they were LOADED down!  One of them held several deals of juice and canned goods with out even thinking about ripping/tearing/stretching or straps snapping.  I was very impressed with how much stuff I was able to pack into just 4 bags!

I have tried to become a better reusable bag shopper over the past few months.  I have a ton of reusable shopping bags that I received from store promos and try to keep them stashed everywhere in the expedition so I don’t forget them.  Here’s the thing though, I forget to take them in!  It’s just on more thing to carry.
Now with my Conserving Now bags, I can’t forget.  The 3 Market Bags conveniently fold up and fit in a little carrying bag and fit in my purse!  So, once I’ve unloaded at the house, I found them back up and straight to my purse they go.  NOW I can’t forget them!
