A.RHEA and MARG Wet Bag Review & DISCOUNT CODE

On any given week, Connor and I will have 3-4 play dates schedule. For example, next week looks a little like this...
With such busy mornings planned, it's important that I pack snacks and sometimes even our lunches so we can refuel and eat on the go when need be. One thing I dislike is having a lunch bag full of Ziploc baggies and having to a) toss them in the trash at the park or b) pack them back up in our lunch bag and bring them back home with us. Either way, we aren't being very green using 2-4 Ziploc baggies a day.

In my search for an alternative to Ziploc baggies, I discovered (via Becky) Allison and her Etsy shop, A.RHEA and MARG and her genius ideas of wet bags. All of Allison's handmade items are practical: you will use them daily - economical: priced as low as $7 - multifunctional: you will use them in ways you've never thought of before and stylish: I'll let you see for yourself!


Are these not the cutest bag to add to your lunch sack, diaper bag or even your purse? And I squealed in delight when I saw my blog name in print. But really, these A.RHEA and MARG bags have so many uses:

+ Sandwiches
+ Snacks like fruit and crackers
+ Baby items like diaper cream, pacifiers or teething toys
+ Cosmetics/toiletries
+ Wet clothes, swimsuits or bibs
+ Office supplies like pens, highlighters and post it notes.

Caring for your handmade wet bag is oh so easy. Each bag can be machine washed and line tired. If you used for something not so messy, you can simply hand wash the inside lining and air dry.

Are you as in love as I am with Allison's brilliant bags? Think of how mess free one of these bags could make your life. Good news - Allison is offering my readers a 15% discount code on any order placed through her Etsy shop. At checkout, used code WMM15.

    1. It's so much easier than ziplocs. Especially when you don't seal them or they open on accident.

  2. Those are adorable! We already use the refillable/ washable puree pouches for quick snacks, and these would be a great way to keep crackers or finger sandwiches fresh while we're on the go!

  7. That looks like a fun week!

    And I am a total dork. I never thought of using wet bags for most of that list. I always just assumed they were for people with babies, DOH! *palm to forehead.
