a peek inside the fishbowl

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any fresh new developments in the world of grocery bag design. Ginger emailed to ask me about these nifty (and Canadian-made!) reusable grocery bags.  This one really impresses. Anyone ever tried these out?

they do look pretty awesome. I haven’t seen them before, but would definitely like to try them.

When I look at the internal bags – I can’t help but think of the ones you made. Could you have launched the seed of the idea? The carry bag arrangement looks so neat.

Ordered! I remember thinking how neat the bags you made were, but I never ever found time to make any of my own. Will be nice to not use all that plastic.

Got my Moukisac and Moukinet bags in the mail a few days ago and went shopping with them yesterday. Love the bags! They are sturdy and appear to be well-made. When I got to the check out of the market where I shop the cashier exclaimed, “oooh! I like those!” Thanks so much for mentioning them on your site!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
