Is this for those plastic "bag for life" things or is it a cloth one bought from somewhere like M&S?

11-06-2010, 05:41 PM
i was taking it as being the cloth ones Claire but now you have made me :unsure:

11-06-2010, 06:14 PM
What is a bag for life?

This can be ANY resusable tote bag. The ones we have here are made out of cloth, a kind of harder plastic, mesh....almost anything. Just about every store has one now.

Here are examples of reusable grocery bags

Count me in Johnie :thumbsup:

I assume we are going to make these bags as "local" as possible? So that even if we have an exchange in the same country we try to send something someone else wouldn't have in their area?

11-06-2010, 06:50 PM
That woud be ideal :yes:

At the moment, I have all UK'ers except me :tongue:

11-06-2010, 08:00 PM
Count me in Johnie. I'll have to ask Donna.

11-06-2010, 08:01 PM
Sure John!

Hi could someone explain more about this as I mam not sure what this meant to be?

11-06-2010, 10:00 PM
It's a bit like a secret Santa sort of. You send johnie your details when it closes you get a name and an address of a member and you agree to send by the date. You will receive a bag from someone else they will either keep it a secret or sign who it's from :)
Hope that explains it in easy terms :)

No, we should all let everyone know everyone is receiving a package from. We won't say while everything is in route but you should put a note letting the person know.

Once the sign ups are over, I send everyone a PM telling them who to send their package too. You then gather up some goodies per the guidelines on the 1st post and then mail to your person. I will post a sent/received thread. You post and let me know you've mailed and then you post and let me know what you've received. Pictures are always nice to add.
