Tips on Tuesday


I've got a shopping tip for you today. I posted last week about the annual Christmas shopping trip I go on with my sisters. We shop all day and try to keep our purchases separate in the back of a van but that's not always easy. A few years ago I bought 2 large canvas shopping bags. I take them with me when we shop and put all my bags into these as we load the van. It keeps my things separate and makes it so much easier to carry it all in. I've also used them when I am doing shopping for myself and don't want to carry lots of separate bags into the house.
I got mine through a LTD catalog, but I've also seen them in other stores. I don't think you'll regret buying a few if you see them!
