Product Review: Flip & Tumble

Product Review: Flip & Tumble 1With the coming and going of Christmas (and after reading this post by Steph at Adventures in Babywearing and watching the movie she mentions), I've been thinking a lot about the amount of "stuff" in our life. There are toys and books, clothes and shoes, furniture and frivolities, odds and ends...all throughout our house.

I am all about simplifying my life and tonight we're doing our semi-routine "purge" - going through our house and filling up bags for charity and bags for the garbage man. And we're hoping to not just go out and replace our old "stuff" with new "stuff." We want to focus on other things that matter...

Like teaching our daughter that life is not about "stuff" (but about people).

We also want to be responsible about the kind of world that we leave behind us for the next generation (you know the message...recycle, reduce, reuse).

One small way to do this is by cutting back on the amount of plastic and "disposable" bags that we use every week (think about all those trips to the grocery store, Target, the corner drugstore, even the library).

Of course, there are all kinds of excuses that I tell myself: "Cloth bags are too bulky, too difficult to carry, too inconvenient." Well, not all cloth bags...take, the flip & tumble bag, for instance. The flip & tumble bag rolls up into a tiny ball and fits into your purse with ease (plus, it doubles as a toy for an antsy toddler when you're on the go!). All you have to do is pull it out and - kazam - it's one easy way to help save the world!

Only fifteen bucks to buy a bag that will help me save the world? I'm in!

  1. This looks like a great product! Our new years resolution is to be more "green", and since we just moved we are starting over new for 2008.

  2. This is such a cool bag. I would LOVE it. My email is sarahw56 (at) gmail (dot) com. I cant wait to see if I win!

  3. I have a diaper crammed with all the essentials, but there is totally room for this little guy in my bag. I love it! We bought the cloth bags our grocery sells, but they are still pretty bulky. What a cool win! Pick me!!!!

  4. I have some Chico Bags, which I like, but I'm always looking for more reusable ones so I can cut my plastic bag intake to zero. Hope I win!

  5. I love this ! I do my best to remember to bring my cloth bags to the store but often forget them since I keep them in the trunk. I love how I could toss this in my diaper bag and GO! Awesome!

  6. I love this concept. I have also thought about how bulky cloth bags can be and that is what has held me up with carting one around. This is right up my alley. I am way into my purging right now!

  7. I've got a couple reusable bags, but they're kind of bulky, and I often forget to bring them into the store with me. I love that this one rolls up so small. No more excuses!

  8. This bag is right up my alley. It is a smarter not harder tool and I think I might just be in love with it. I hope you pick me to share it with. Happy New Year!


  9. I'd really love one of these to stash in my purse, as I am always forgetting my canvas totes at home when I am out shopping.


  10. That was a great video...made hubby and i think about all the "stuff" in our lives. I didn't realize that this is another way we are hurting our environment. We too would like to rid ourselves of the excess (and avoid replacing it with more stuff).

  11. Love it and I love Envirosax at, I got some of them for Christmas gifts, but I love this one as well. Thanks!

  12. Thats a super neat idea.. and yes I hear you on the stuff bit.. Ive been cleaning out the house and posting most of my stuff on freecycle which is great as other people can use it and it doesnt go to the dump!

    I blogged you too :)

  13. Great IDea! Id love a reusable bag. Ugh- even though I do reuse those plastic bags- for shipping, poopy diapers, and dog cleanup. I hate to see the tons of bags we come home with- not to mention those that break because of heavy items- a reusable bag would be just the [email protected]

  14. I am so on the same page as you are. Funny, I posted the Story of Stuff on my blog yesterday. I think I need to watch it at least once a month to stay focused....especially when I want to rush out to the mall to buy the "it" shirt for date night. Also, I am totally tracking with you about keeping our kids educated about stuff and what is important. I would love to use this bag and love it when I see others at the grocery store using reusable bags. Thanks.

  15. We have been switching to reusable bags when grocery shopping. This would be wonderful to have for when we are at other retailers. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  16. I'm trying to simplify my life as well. I just love this bag, what a great idea! I have a few canvas bags, but I almost always forget to bring them, lol. This is such a great idea, hope to win!

  17. I love how tiny that bag is. I try to reuse the plastic bags from Target and the grocery store, at least, but this would be a great item to use, too. And I hear you about the amount of "stuff". I think we all get that slightly overwhelmed feeling just after Christmas. I, too, have to wait until the kids go back to school, then I can purge a bit more.

  18. I was just telling a friend how overwhelmed I feel with STUFF everywhere. Of course, my kids don't want to get rid of any of the dusty, unused toys that are sprinkled throughout the house even though they scored big time with Santa. Ugh, I'll wait till they go back to school and start clearing out...

  19. This is cool. It would be great for travel to stick into your suitcase when you anticipate needing a carry-on for a few extra souvenirs on the trip back.
