I absolutely LOVE reusable sandwich and snack bags. We use them for packing my kids’ lunches every day. I’ve even packed food like half a banana or half an avocado for my 13-month old son with a reusable spoon for meals on the go.
While I love my reusable bags, sometimes I need a bag that’s see-through like traditional disposable sandwich bags. My 5-year-old son prefers disposable gallon bags to store his Ninjago Legos, despite my efforts to give him reusable containers. I think he likes the flexibility of a disposable bag.
Then I found neat-os. These bags have a transparent strip that makes it easy to see what’s inside. It’s way easier for my kids to reach for the bag of carrots over the bag of pretzels in their lunches. I was thrilled to find out that all materials for neat-os are sourced and made in the USA. The bags are BPA free, phthalate free, PVC free, lead free and non-toxic. They are made from a cotton canvas that was designed for chefs and coated in food-safe plastic that can withstand high temperatures – yet so easy to clean.
And because there’s a see-through strip, neat-os is ideal for storing non-food items like crayons (or in my son’s case, Legos). I just used my set on a min-vacation to store toiletries like sunscreen, skin care and toothbrushes. neat-os has a lot of great suggestions on uses for their patented reusable bags.
The bags can be personalized too with markers for each child.
Plus, I love that neat-os makes a gallon-size bag (which I haven’t found anywhere else) for larger items like produce. I use it for storing lettuce greens. neat-os are available online and come in three sizes: snack bag ($8), sandwich bag ($9) and gallon bag ($15).
