Sponsor of the Week: Mixed Bag Designs

Our giveaway this week is hosted by a company that we are really excited to feature.


One of our CSI Girls, Beckie, is proud to say that she is already a huge fan of Mixed Bag Designs.

“I am obsessed with these bags from Mixed Bag Designs.  I practically have every style imaginable!”

The bags from Mixed Bag Designs are are made from woven polypropylene which makes them easy to clean and very durable.  The material that goes into these bags is from up to 40% recycled materials, and most of the bags can hold up to 50 lbs.!


All the bags can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, and they are good as new!  What a great way to shrink your carbon footprint….in style!

Let’s hear some more about Beckie’s personal favorites:

“I think my favorite size is the 2 Zip Pouch Set.  At $9 for both of them they are perfect for throwing in a pool bag.  I have one with my sunscreen, lip balm, aloe and sunglasses in it.  In the other I have my kids diving sticks, goggles, and little plastic sea animals.  I took mine in the boat while we were tubing and waterskiing at my dad’s house…PERECT SIZE!”


“Next up on my fave list is the Hold Everything bag for $19.  It literally holds everything.  It is HUUUUGE! It can handle laundry, craft supplies, beach towels, or anything else you need to haul.”


“The last one I want to spotlight is the Large Fold N’ Hold.  I use this every time we go on a road trip.  I have one in front with my kids toys in it and one in the back that holds all the snacks.  And when I get to my destination they fold flat and are easy to store.”


Has Beckie convinced you that you just HAVE to win our giveaway this week?  Mixed Bag Designs is generously giving a lucky CSI Reader a 6-8 bag set (chosen by Mixed Bag Designs) plus a laptop bag in the design of your choosing!

    You got me! I have been pouring over all the amazing bags at mixedbag and I am overwhelmed!!!! I had no idea there were so many fab bags! I LOVE this company! You said to post what my fav was…I’ll say Blossom or Damask prints on one of the huge bags and then tell you it would be a real struggle picking from the abundant selection. My daughter lost her house and belongings in the April tornadoes in Alabama and she had tons of totes and bags that we are now looking to replace…methinks this is a company I need to share with her!!! Thanks for the chance to win! What fun that would be!!!

    Yikes! So many choices. Mixed Bags sure has expanded their line. I wouldn’t mind having one of everything, but really like the Department Store bags (the black/white damask is gorgeous), the insulated brown and blue flower insulated tote would be very handy, as would any of the Hold Everything containers. I best get to sorting through them. Thanks for letting us play along.
