Super Stocking Stuffers: It's A Ten Review and Giveaway!

How many plastic baggies to you use each day? A lot? Unfortunately, I use way too many for my husband's lunch and daughter's snacks. I was looking for an Eco-friendly way to replace the use of small baggies, when I discovered these stylish and reusable Sak Saver Baggies by It's A Ten. These reusable baggies are the perfect solution and would make an excellent stocking stuffer for anyone in your family!

Tami, the owner of It's A Ten and creator of the Sak Saver Baggies, started making the reusable baggies a few months ago, when a friend asked her to make her a couple for her husband. Luckily, she had a large stash of designer fabrics available and many years of sewing experience. Tami made several Sak Saver Baggies and after rave reviews from other friends, she decided to start selling the reusable baggies in her etsy store.

There are several different sizes and fabric choices available for the Sak Saver Baggies.
Mini snack bag size: 4" x 7 1/2"
Sandwich bag size: 6" x 7 1/2"
Quart bag size: 8 1/2" x 7 1/2"

All of the Sak Saver Baggies are made of high quality cotton fabric on the outside and lined with 100% Nylon ripstop fabric on the inside. This fabric is water resistant, not waterproof. Therefore, the bags would not be suitable for extremely wet items but perfect for sandwiches, crackers, fruit or other "on the go" type of food. A Velcro closure lines the top of the bag to ensure your food stays put. Since its not an airtight seal, it is not recommend to store food overnight or for extended periods of time in the bags.

My daughter loves her Mini Snack Sak Saver Baggie, which she calls, her "snack purse". It is the perfect size for a preschooler. I love that it has a Velcro closure that is easy for her to open and close by herself. She has trouble closing a regular Ziploc baggie; therefore, she normally leaves a trail of goldfish, cheerios, or other snack around the house. However, she can easily close the Sak Saver Baggie! In addition, I appreciate that it is machine washable! To clean, you can simply either handwash or toss in the washing machine and air dry.

Tami had this to say, "Being a stay at home mom with 2 kids who are not in school yet, I find that sewing is something that I can do with my girls playing in the next room or after they've gone to bed for the night. Plus they are both becoming very interested in sewing. My 4 year old already wants a sewing machine like mommy's for "my 5 birthday"...those are her words! Its exciting to be making (and using myself) something that is good for the environment. Prior to using my bags, I would use at least 3-4 plastic bags a day because each of my girls wanted their "own" snack bag. I can honestly say that I know I haven't used near as many plastic Ziploc bags since I've started making my Sak Saver Baggies!! (Note: I still use plastic ziploc bags for overnight storage in the refrigerator or freezer)"

It's A Ten is giving away one Mini Snack Sak Saver Baggie to one lucky reader! These bags are a Mommy must-have and would make a perfect stocking stuffer for everyone on your shopping list!
