CLOSED: Eco-Adorable! Little House Creations (Etsy) Review, Discount & Giveaway!

How much do I love that I get to bring you a discount code & giveaway from a fellow Tucson mama? And an eco-friendly, entrepreneurial Tucson mama at that? Ummmm, well it's MORE THAN A LOT! 


Little House Creations is an Etsy shop dedicated to preventing waste, advocating recycling, and offering general charmingness in the form of reusable snack and sammy bags. I can't remember what exactly brought me to this mama's Etsy shop (she's a friend of my super-cool neighbor, maybe that was it?)... anyways it was right around the time Otto started pre-school this past fall and I was powerless against the cuteness and loved the idea of NOT sending Otto to school with plastic baggies in his lunch every day. So I snatched up 2 reusable snack bags (love!) and they came sooooo charmingly packaged:


I wanted to spread the word about Abby's shop to the world and she thought it would be fun to do a discount code/giveaway so Yo! Check it!

Through January 31 all your purchases are 10% off!

Just enter the code "Tidbits" with your purchase and you will be refunded 10% via PayPal once the transaction goes through. This is such a great investment - Abby's stylish, reusable snack and sandwich bags are totally affordable to begin with and you save mucho denero in the long run by not buying box after box of plastic bags. Also, they are ultra cool-looking so you (or your kids or whoever) will be the Arthur Fonzarelli  of the lunchroom when taking meals/snacks in these freaking cute bags! 

How to Enter The Giveaway...

One lucky TidbitsParenting reader will win this set of 1 reusable sandwich bag & 1 matching reusable snack bag!

I love that reusable snack bags are helping reduce waste...Christmas was a horrible reminder of how much waste our family produces with all the gifts and packaging.

Sweet Harper said...

My favorite thing to pack for a snack is homemade trail mix. I am still perfecting my recipe though...

I think reusable snack/sandwich bags are a great idea because I think it can really save a lot of money in the long run. I never realized how many plastic baggies I would go through in a month with just one toddler. I can only imagine how that would increase once she starts school. Not to mention, it's such an easy switch-up to keep from sending so much to a landfill.

My favorite thing to pack as a snack are Goldfish crackers. I always have a supply in my diaper bag.

Wow! Thanks so much for posting this. I love Etsy and learned about it from some moms in the New Mom and Baby Group at the Birth Center. I'm also happy to support local mom-preneurs as I'm one. I just started a blog as well at http://www.mommamind.com. Let me know if you have any tips :)

I've been trying to decide which reusable bags to get for my son's lunch and have been very overwhelmed by all the options. I love the idea because the plastic makes me feel so guilty!

reusable bags are cool because not only do I save money but I can do a little bit more to help save the environment

Leftovers are always good for lunch the next day-or the classic PB&J with apples and carrots. It brings me back to my school days. :)
