Happy Holidays! This giveaway is part of the Gift Giveaway Bash. Check back daily for new giveaways,
If you heard the word ReUsies would you know what it was? It pretty much means what it sounds like. ReUsies is a product that is meant to be used and reused hence, the product name “ReUsies ”.
Ha! Pretty simple, huh!?
Well, ReUsies offered to send me a two pack of ReUsies to try out. After I found out that these were great little reusable sandwich and snack bags I was super excited! I dislike paying for something that I know will be thrown away. And, bribe as you will, my children cannot remember to bring baggies home to re-use.
Time went by and “the package” finally arrived.
An envelope arrived one evening and I tore it open to check things out. Out fell two little ReUsies bags and a product card. Wonderful Mommie that I am, I disregard the card to get my hands on the actual bags.
I pull them out and see that I received the Chugga Choo two-pack version of the ReUsies . This design was perfect for me since I have two boys and a girl. I curiously inspect the bag which looks just like an envelope that closes with velcro. The inside is made out of leak resistant nylon material. Check. A strip of velcro also appears down the back side of the bag.
For the life of me I couldn’t figure out what this mysterious strip of velcro was doing on the back of the bag. Seriously, it was too far away from the front flap to wrap around to adhere to. A thought actually crossed my mind that their must be some kind of ReUsies lunchbag and this velcro was to adhere your sandwich to the side of the bag or something. Ha! Was I ever wrong about that. Keep reading…
How did the ReUsies work when I tested it out?
My daughter was just as thrilled to see the bags arrive and eager to test them out. She helped fill up a bag full of grapes and a one with a PB&J sandwich. Then she promptly requested that we walk over to her Granny’s to have a picnic and show off her new snack bags. I obliged and she had a great trip.
After out test it was time to clean things up. Now, at this point I actually looked at the product card that came in the package to see the proper way to care for these things. Know what? I found a use for that mysterious velcro. Um, when you turn the ReUsie inside out you are able to adhere the front flap to that back piece of velcro. Then you can actually toss these things into your dishwasher or washing machine without them getting stuck to everything else in the washer. Hand washing is an option also.
Would I buy anything else from ReUsies?
Let’s just say that I received two ReUies and three kids. I’m sure you’re pretty good at figuring out that math equation.
