Floral and Paris tote

This week has come with a lot of wonderful activities in the Nerdy House.

Please consider using reusable bags for your groceries. This New Year resolve to be ecofriendly. It is never a good idea to use a single time use plastic bag to carry your groceries from the car to you house. Use durable, reusable, pretty-looking bags. These are one time investments and can last a long time. Let the future generations learn from you to be kind to the environment. We can make a difference in our lifetime and help everyone around us.

These are the new bags available this week at the ANC Madeit and Etsy stores.
