Reisenthel Mini Maxi Shopper Review and Giveaway

One of the easiest steps you can take to be more green is to ditch those plastic and paper bags at the store and start bringing your own! I have about 10 reusable shopping bags, most of which are just the $1.00 store ones (Stop & Shop). They aren't pretty, but they work. I have to admit, I've always wanted a stylish one though.

The Reisenthel Mini Maxi Shopper L is not only cute and fashionable but its is convenient too. I received one to test out in Eden Green (shown left). It comes with a 5.5 in. x 3.5 in. pouch that the bag easily folds into. And no fancy folding technique is required. The bag itself can hold up to 26 pounds, has long straps and comes in more than 20 colors/patterns.

So I headed out to the grocery store for a test run of my Mini Maxi. For starters, I was excited just to have a cute bag! Now with 4 males to feed and 1 pregnant mama, our grocery cart gets pretty full. Hubby packed the bags for me and easily fit 4 boxes of cereal in this bag, with room to spare. (The cereal was on sale by the way!)


I'm sorry, this isn't the greatest picture, but I think you get the idea. I definitely could have fit more in the bag if *I* was doing the packing. And once the bag was unpacked, I quickly folded it up, put it back in the pouch and tossed it into my purse. It takes up so little space, I love it!

Shop
The suggested retail price of the Mini Maxi Shopper L is $9.00 and it can be found at online retailers such as Sur La Table and Garnet Hill.

  80. I am in the market for better storage options, so I am automatically drawn to the Storagebox L. It looks durable and cute!

    ReplyDelete
  81. The bottle bag is a chic and practical way to carry the bottles I buy at the store - any other bag they won't stand up in beyond the initial loading of the bag - and something always ends up leaking. This should solve the problem perfectly!
