Etsy GIVEAWAY: Eco-friendly market tote and snack bag set from Mint Lane

I've been pretty good about using my reusable grocery totes lately. Except...well, I've been using these ugly bright green Stop and Shop totes. They're hideous. It's not so bad when I am shopping at Stop and Shop.  But I also use them at the farmer's market, for Nate's lunch when we're going to be out and for library books. Not cute. And after a few uses they start looking pretty ragged. So I was so excited to find Mint Lane's reusable totes on Etsy. They're collapsible, washable and cute!

I was so excited to get mine to try out so I could ditch the incredible hulk bags. I am in love with it. It's great to look at - adorable, whimsical fabric - roomy and very sturdy. I've taken my tote on two shopping trips and a few outings so far. It fits an unbelievable amount of groceries. I stuffed it full (overflowing!) both times and it was still comfortable over my shoulder. That's a sturdy bag. I need more! Here's Nate helping me unload the groceries:

In addition to needing a tote, I've also been meaning to get some reusable snack bags for Nate's lunches. I don't want his food wrapped in plastic and I'm not crazy about wrapping everything in tin foil either. My tin foil saving grandmother would have a heart attack if she knew how much I went through. Not very environmentally conscious of me. Katherine and Mint Lane saved the day again. She has an adorable collection of reusable cotton snack bags. Sweet prints with a big velcro tab, in two different sizes. Great for carrying snacks and sandwiches. You could really use them for anything. Yesterday I even loaded one up with dog treats when I took Ava to the vet. Here's my set:

BUY: You can purchase Katherine's totes, zippered pouches and other goodies at her etsy shop Mint Lane. Katherine is an incredible seamstress. Her work is impeccable and her attention to detail is incredibly impressive. I can't recommend Mint Lane's items enough.

WIN! Katherine is generously offering an eco-friendly grocery/market/everything tote and snack bag combo (winner's choice) to one lucky Nater Tot winner.
