Going Green with a Daily Carry All

September 30, 2008

Here is a great way to ‘Go Green’ submitted to us by Dara of Portland Oregon…she transformed her Daily Carry All into her shopping bag eliminating the need for ‘paper’ or ‘plastic’ or those little bags the stores will sell you with their advertising all over them. With a Daily Carry All you not only have a great sturdy bag to carry your groceries in but you also can make use of the window as Dara did by putting your list into it. What a great idea!

Dara made her own pad of lists but told us that what she is really looking for is a good dry erase pen so as to never have to write on the paper itself, but to be able to write on the outside of the window and then wipe it off!! That is really going green!!

So if any of you out there have any suggestions or ideas to make this great idea even better…let us know by just emailing us at!!

Trick or Treat! Decorate your own Trick or Treat Bag!

September 26, 2008

This scary bag was submitted to us by six year old Jacob of Joseph Oregon. He started with a plain Daily Carry All, printed out the Halloween card off of our Create and Print site, colored it himself and put it in the window.

He then attached a string of lights around the top for safety. Glow in the dark stickers were his next step. He finished it all off with a ghoul hanging on the side.

Jacob can use his Trick or Treat bag year after year. He can add to it, change out his picture….make it new every year as he gets older. Don’t forget the bottle holders inside the bag, perfect for the thirsty little goblin.


Thank you Jacob for all the work you did and the great idea!!
