Organizing Bag Giveaway

Organizing bags are what work for me, and this week you can enter Lara's giveaway (link below) and mine to possibly get some of your own for free. Keep reading and you'll wonder how you ever got along without them. If you'd like to go ahead and order some, please click on the link in my sidebar. Thanks and good luck in the giveaway-not entering is what doesn't work for me.

Lara over at The Lazy Organizer is sponsoring an organizing bag giveaway. It's very easy to enter, just head over to her site and enter your guesses to her questions (it's a baby pool), and you'll be entered to win a set of bags - one of each size. She'll draw the winner on Friday. Good Luck! I think I will join in the fun and offer 2 Medium bags for one lucky winner, also drawn on Friday. Just leave me a comment about your favorite family read aloud (the Bible doesn't count) and make sure you have a blog or email address I can contact you through if you win. This Little Bag is holding my mom essentials and goes in my car bag (what mom bag is complete without disposable toilet seat covers?) But it's also a great size for holding puzzle pieces and Polly Pockets.
This Medium-sized bag is perfect for storing a diaper, wipes and a change of clothes. It's small enough to fit in most purses and the handle makes it great to grab on the go. It's also great for bringing along a book or two - or Barbies anyone?
I'm using this Big Organizing Bag to hold supplies for my special needs son (briefs, chuk, catheter supplies, a spare g-tube and gloves), it also goes into my car bag so it's handy for emergencies. Odds are you probably won't need to use it for that but it also works great to store any of my knitting/applique/embroidery projects (the little clear pocket is perfect for storing needles or stitch markers) or for toting along a coloring book and pencils.

There's one more Really Big Bag and it's perfect for holding large quilting projects, big board puzzles, or you know, all the Littlest Pet Shop toys that are currently littering your house.

In case you'd just like to go ahead and get organized now, please click on the link in my sidebar to order any of your own bags. Mine came in two days -that's great service!

i don't think a bag could even begin to organize my life :) but i'd love to share that our favorite family read-aloud is The Chronicles of Narnia. we've been through them a few times now and can't seem to get enough.
another (shorter) option is The Tale of Despereaux (a sweet story about a mouse).

My family consists of wriggly little kids so our read alouds consist of Dr. Seuss (ABC book is the favorite of all time for them). I can't wait until they'll listen to me read Little House on the Prairie books.

Wendy said...

We love to read aloud together, so it's hard to pick a favorite. But if I have to pick just one, I guess I'd say it's Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Sometimes I'd swear my family is in the wrong century, ha ha!

When it is my turn to read my kids favorite picture book is I Aint Gonna Paint No More. When it is my husbands turn it is Where The Wild Things Are. Their favorite chapter book that I have read them is The Boxcar Children.

Heather said...

Our favorite family read-a-loud is our "Have I ever told you" book. This is a book of stories about my husband and I when we were little. Each page has a photo or other cute image to go along with the story. We also add little stories about the kids every so often so it can become a family history storybook. The kids love reading it as a bedtime story book. It's also a way we can teach values through our life experiences.

We are starting to read To Kill a Mockingbird.
It's one of my fav's. I think the kids are at a good age.

And we are always starting the B of M. Over and Over and Over.

I am loving all these suggestions, keep 'em coming!

I love that they all have handles. Now *that's* useful!

Andrea said...

That's some great organizing.
My kids are little, so they love any book. The favorite changes all the time. Right now it's How Does a Dinosaur Say Goodnight.

Joan said...

My kids are grown and gone, but when they were small we read together a LOT. My grandson is in my life now, and one of our favorites is "The night you were born" -- It makes him know how important he is to our family and brings tears to my eyes every time!

How fun that you are doing a give away too! I have always wanted to try the organizing bags. My kids are still young and like lots of short stories. Their favorites have to be "Five Little Monkeys" series and "If you Give a Mouse a..." series.

DD Anna is almost 6 and loves the Little House books (We've finished Big Woods, and have started on the Prairie). She also likes Junie B. Jones.


Marne said...

Oh, it is hard to pick just one favorite read aloud! I will have to say two...mainly because of the different age groups. My boys are loving the Captain Underpants series, and my 2 year old daughter loves the book I Love You Through and Through.

Fun contest! LOVE the bags. I love your blog!
