My New Passenger

Posted: May 20th, 2010 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

I’m definitely a basket person,if you haven’t figured that out yet, but my new favorite one is this beauty

Reisenthel Market Basket, Baroque Sand

It is a Reisenthel Market Bag and they come in so many colors and patterns - and are just so stinking durable. You can check out all the colors and styles at Reusablebags.com or click here.

It was a birthday gift from my sister-in-law last year and one of my favorite things from My Favorite Things Newsletter too. I knew exactly where I wanted to put my basket and that was in my car. I have 4 little hands in the back that love to play with things while I tote them around. Happy Meal toys, books, matchbox cars…you name it we have it in that basket. It is also a great place to hold that extra hat, mittens or water bottle so it doesn’t end up on the floor of the car.

Someday maybe I’ll go to the farmer’s market and carry it around looking all cool….

…but right now it fits perfectly as a mini organizer/passenger in the car.

Want another idea? Well, I returned the favor and my sister-in-law requested one for her birthday too — so her’s has found a place at the bottom of their stairs and it has become the catch all for things needing to go up. Great idea!

    I just saw my own sister-in-law with one of these…she had a classic black one that she had monogrammed. Very stylish and useful!
