My new canvas bag
As a committed minimalist, I get excited when I find one product that will do the work of two. This bag will do the work of three.
My search for a new bag started when I noticed that my current grocery bag is starting to fray.
Three amigos: hemp grocery bag, washable backpack, traditional suitcase.
At first, I thought I would just repurpose the backpack to be my new grocery bag, but it is not quite big enough. The hemp bag is plenty big, but it is not washable, which is a bit of a problem when the berries get squished. By getting a bag with a zippered top,
I can seal my goodies in.
The outside pocket is handy for a wallet, phone and keys. The bag is roomy enough for me to pack most of my clothing, except for a couple bulky sweaters. I have used the bag for grocery shopping, to take my laptop to the library along with my note cards and a snack. It has been used as a project bag, when I took my latest hand-sewing creation with a sewing kit. And I plan to use it as a suitcase next weekend when I go to visit my newly arrived grandson. He came a little early (5 weeks) but is healthy and working to fill out those newborn onesies.
The hemp bag is compostable, and the other two will go to new homes.
