Hi! We were tired of taking reusable bags to the grocery store and farmer's market only to bring home lots of those produce bags that are forever hard to open. We thought of a solution and they work great. My 16 year old daughter created nylon knit produce bags that close with a drawstring, are reusable and washable. We have used ours for many months now and they are still in tip top shape. Sometimes we even get an extra discount at the farmer's market for being so creative. She sells them on Etsy at www.qwertyo.etsy.com in an effort to save a bit of money for college in a few years. We have also found a great site for making our own all natural laundry detergent and other household cleaners. www.tipnut.com. We have tried the recipes and our home is sparkly and our laundry clean. Happy New Year everyone!

I would LOVE to be able to shop at a Whole Foods store!     Maybe in my next life - you are so lucky.
