First I wanted to remind you to check out my homeschool blog, I have a new post up about art and self-esteem. You can see it here.
Now for my Works-for-Me Wednesday post . . .
We make alot of trips to the library. ALOT. Because 1. I love books 2. we homeschool 3. I love books
You would think that since we go about once a week or two, we wouldn't be checking out that many books.
Well you would be wrong. We went yesterday and we have checked out about 35 books - some picture books, some chapter books, some cookbooks - not all will be read, and not all will be completely read but still that's alot of books.
I have tried various things over the years to help carry all of them but haven't been completely happy with any of them, until now.
Now I use 2 of those reusable shopping bags - not the fabric ones. You know, the plasticky ones that are made from recycled bottles? I have seen them for $1-2 so if they tear up from me putting too much in it, I haven't lost that big of an investment. But they hold a huge amount.
I have used 5 plastic grocery type bags before (double bagged) to carry books to and from the library and they have broken after just a couple of uses. I had room to spare with my 2 reusable bags that I have been using for 2 months.
I love these bags, they don't take up very much space but they carry so much. These bags really work for me.
