“ Brand: Boots / Type: Shopping Bag „
When I spotted this cute little shopping bag that folds into a strawberry I just had to have it! I bought it from Boots in the Natural Collection range for about £2. It was a bit of an impulse buy and I mostly bought it based on the novelty factor.
I really don't like going shopping without bringing my own bags because it means I have to get flimsy carrier bags or if I'm in Aldi it means I have to pay for bags to carry my shopping. It's really handy that you can hang it on your bag because it is right there when you need it and it makes it harder to forget to use it. This is so useful, it folds up really small so it fits easily in my handbag or I can hang it off my bag and it looks quirky and cute. This little strawberry is a fun way to carry a shopping bag and I think it's a great idea.
The strawberry and the bag is red, like a strawberry of course and has white dots and green detail at the top, it's very cute and fun looking. There is a red stretchy elastic on the top which is pretty long making it easy to attach to your bag. There is a black, plastic toggle on it to tighten the drawstring to make the strawberry shape and make the bag small and compact. The bag itself is slightly bigger than a standard carrier bag. Unlike a carrier bag though, you can fill it up and it won't break or stretch, it's quite good quality and has lasted me many shopping trips with no issues. It's made from a polyester or nylon fabric and it is surprisingly good quality and sturdy. It's very light and doesn't take up much space at all, it really is handy and a great little idea for a shopping bag.
I think it's quite a good looking shopping bag, I like how it's different from the other reusable shopping bags. Also, because of the quality it can take a fair bit of weight and you can fill it up with shopping. I have had mine for two years now and it is still going strong. I have bought a couple more of these types of shopping bags that fold up small, they fold into squares though- not strawberries! My Boots Natural Collection strawberry version is better quality than my Poundland ones though, but I am sure there are others which are great quality too. The strawberry shape is what I really like about this, not to mention the great quality and the usefulness.
I would definitely recommend this, it's really useful and handy and it looks great. I think it's a lovely idea and has saved me from using flimsy carrier bags a few times because this is so easy to just attach to my bag for when I need it.
I hate shopping without taking a re-useable bag, so when I popped to my local boots I spotted this brilliant and quirky strawberry shopping bag by Boots Natural Collection for a reasonable £3.99.
This bag really is the best looking re-useable bag around. It is shaped like a cute strawberry once it is all folded up into itself. This also has an handy elastic attached which is long enough to enable you to hang it on your regular bag when your are out and about to remind you to use it. Too often we pop one of these in our bags and forget its there, so being able to hang it from a regular bag is a really good idea.
Once this is opened up it a really good size, about the size of a regular sized supermarket carrier bag. It really is roomy, and I find that I can fit quite a few items in this. I don't tend to overload it with heavy items, even thought it is very robust and well made.
It is made from an easy care nylon type fabric, and is very light weight, and takes up very little room if you want to pop it in your hand bag.
I've had mine a few months now and use it on a regular basis, whether its just a few odds and ends from the supermarket, or if I'm purchasing something and just refuse the carrier, it all fits in quite nicely, and very stylishly at the same time.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, I've bought a few re-useable shopping bags over the years, but this is by far the best, cute, durable and brightens up any shopping day.
