If you ask me, most laundry baskets or bins are ugly. And I mean UGGGLY. But, I came across this sale item at Linen Chest and thought: “Now, there is a laundry basket you’d be proud to display!” A lovely bamboo outer casing holds a durable fabric laundry bag. Sturdy bamboo handles make this laundry bin an easy one to tote around to the washing machine and back.
Ooh, baby! They are little, and adorable…and boy do they need a lot of stuff! New parents may feel overwhelmed by the list of necessities their little ones require, and that’s where the rest of us come in….by selecting a helpful baby shower gift. Yes, it’s time for another one of our baby shower gift lists!
Right now, baby showers feel entirely different, as we’re all staying home and staying safe from the pandemic. But, these online shopping options allow you to purchase a baby gift and send it directly to the proud new parents. So, it may be a baby shower over Zoom, but it’s still a baby shower! And if you send the gifts ahead of time, the parents can still ooh and aah over their new baby gifts, and show them off to you via Zoom. It’s a different format to be certain, but it’s still a memory to cherish.

Making these small choices over time really add up to huge results. Okay, onward to our favourite shopping bags!

Shopping should be fun! Yes, that even includes grocery shopping. But, for those of us trying to reduce our footprint on the planet, it also means making wise choices of how to carry our food purchases. Instead of automatically relying on plastic bags, choose to carry jute, cotton, mesh or muslin bags instead. When stocking up on produce, our choices for eco-friendly produce bags make it a breeze to shop! Your health and the planet will both thank you.
