The Linen Cupboard presents the Original Reusable Designer Bag

As this is the year that we all have to change our shopping habits to reusable bags, it has become clear that the changeover is not as entrenched for us yet as for those who have always shopped this way in Europe.

Many women have said they often forget their shopping bags in the car or at home. We have even discussed how long it takes for a new practice to become a habit (seven times for my dog). Personally, I often walk to the grocery store or stop in after work on foot and realize my shopping bags are in the car at home.

Imagine my delight, then, when I found these amazing, little fold up bags from Envirosax (as seen in Canadian Living). They take up no room in your purse, unwrap to hold up to forty pounds (although none of us should be carrying that much weight), and can be washed by hand and hung to dry. How much more perfect can it get?

Add amazing style and colour and you really have the perfect little bag for always having on hand. At $9 each, it's worth picking up 2 or 3 in case you're like me and always seem to leave the store with more than you planned on getting.

So, shop with attitude and style while being thoughtful about our environment.
