Have you ever heard someone say they were addicted to bags? That sounded nuts, until I realized I had bags to hold my bags.
But here’s one suitable to recycle your others for: Love Drop Jumbo Canvas Shopper Tote ($17) Loving your planet looks good with this canvas tote that can stand up like a paper sack and slings over your shoulder.

Chipped nail or lost pet?
While I don’t wear nail polish or own a pet, I hate the tedious task of changing out keys on a ring. I just heard someone talking about the urgent need/difficuluty of getting a new ID tag for a dog. The very next week I was invited to discuss LINKS-IT.
These colorful bits were designed by a pet owner and team of veterinarians to make attaching tags simple and painless. Just pull back the locking crossbar, snap apart the LINKS-IT, slide tags onto the bottom half and the collar ring onto the top half and then lock the LINKS-IT in place.
I asked my contact if her dog would look best in purple or red and forwarded a LINKS-IT to try. Word is, it does what it says:
- Easy to open and close without breaking your nails or needing tools
- Strong and sturdy for active dogs: Tested to hold 58 lbs and open and close over 50,000 times
- Match color to fit your pet's personality and style. Select from Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, White, and Yellow colors.
- Quiet and lightweight (lighter than a dime)
- Made in the USA
- Weatherproof and will not rust
