Almost every morning, for breakfast, I have cereal. Dry cereal. In a bag like these:And, throughout the week, those baggies pile up on the console in my van. Not because I’m a slob, but because I hate to throw those plastic bags away. So, at the end of the week, I bring them in and use them again. Sort of icky, isn’t it? Enter snackTAXIs, invented by a mother of three and made in a cottage industry setting in the hills of Western Massachusetts. They are my new alternative to all of those plastic bags. They are made of adorable and fun fabric on the outside, and a coordinating material on the inside. I received a sandwich-sack, a napkin, a snack-sack, and a produce-sack. They all can be machine washed and dried, or washed by hand and air dried. These do not leak. The top flap folds over enough so there isn’t a spot on the sides for food to fall out. I had some plastic ones that were horrible and leaked. The snackTAXIs rock. No leaking. Full of golfish, then dumped on the side. No crumbs or fish escaped.
I’m also very thankful for the produce bag. We use canvas bags at the grocery store, but never know what to do with our produce. We used to just put it in the card and it rolled around. Now, we can put it in the produce bag to keep it safe and bruise-free.
