Get Chico With Me GIVEAWAY

First, no one is paying me to do this and I am doing this fully on my own to spread some goodness around the world. Because, what goes around, comes around, right?

Do you have a Chico bag? Would you like one?

I am completely in love with my Chico bags and have so many of them in so many different colors. What makes them so special?

First lets focus on the standard responses. They are environmentally friendly so instead of using plastic bags (not so good) or paper bags (not much better) when shopping you can pull out your awesome Chico bag! They are small bags and roll up into a convenient hand sized package that has a clip on it. Therefore, you can clip this to any bag or for me, I just keep 3-4 in my purse at all times....and back-ups in the trunk of my car. And when you live somewhere like I do that has an imposed plastic bag ban, you will want to have your own bag with you. The alternate, you pay for a bag or get a paper bag. The plus, you are doing good for the environment and some stores may credit you 5 cents for each bag you bring. How cool is that?!

Now I know there have been stories about how reusable grocery bags can become contaminated from food in them but do not fret. Your Chico bag is washable and holds up well!

And that brings me to why I love Chico bag on my own personal running mom level. I use a Chico bag daily as my gym bag. Yep, they make great gym bags! It is the perfect size to hold my towel, shampoo, powder (I love baby powder!), change of clothes, and change of shoes. When I am done getting all nasty and sweaty, I can clean up in the gym locker room, put my yuckies in the Chico bag, and go home and wash every piece later. Isn't this better than reusing a gym bag and adding sweaties into it day after day?

What else could you do with your Chico bag? Whatever you want! Beach bag! Show and tell bag! Dirty clothes bag for preschoolers! Toy bag for car trips! Trick or treating bag! Race gear bag! (Yep, when I travel for races I always put my race outfit and shoes into a Chico bag and tie it shut, then pack in my carrying bag.) Stocking stuffer! The options are endless.

And since I want to do good today and spread some love, I am offering you the chance to win not 1 but 3 Chico bags (the original) in red, black, and orange (each bag is one color in case you are beginning to get scared). The perfect colors for the upcoming holidays!

  2. I carry a bay everyday but I love your idea of using it for my workout gear. Often my totes are not so laundry freindly and end up stink-ified! So I'd use one for that and the other 2 the kids would use for the daily things to the sitter and school!

  5. I am like a bag lady . I care a bag where ever I go. My husband always asking me what the heck you go in that bag. I have to be without certain things. I love the Messenger bag and the sling bag those two are so sweet.
