Each week’s Deals in the Wild post will be a place for both me, and you, to share any interesting deals we find in the current week, whether they’re online or in stores.
In light of the shopping bag fees in Chicago and some suburbs, it’s worth sharing again that I’m a big fan of these ripstop nylon reusable bags. They’re really strong, and they fold up into a pouch that’s smaller than a deck of cards! Yes, that’s slightly magical in my book.
I keep one in my purse, as well as one in each of my coat pockets. They’re really handy for all kinds of unexpectedly-needing-to-carry-something situations. Stop by the library and bring home more than an armload of books? Put them in the bag. Traveling and bringing home too many smaller bags of souvenirs? Put them all in the bag, and you suddenly fit the “one personal item” allowance from the airline. I’m sure you can think of other uses, but the bottom line is this: They’re great!
These awesome little bags are currently under $2 each at Amazon.
Have you spotted any good deals in the wild this week? Feel free to post them below! If your deal includes photos, feel free to email them to me at email@example.com, and I’ll add them to your comment.
