Super fantastic, its-laS-tik

Whoops, I guess technically it’s no longer afternoon. Today sort of got away from me. But! I have been out shopping (for seeds, as it’s nearly garden time) and that got me thinking that it’s time to give away a super fantastic reusable shopping bag.

Meet What’Surbag, a company based in New Orleans that makes bags out of something called its-laS-tik (composed of nylon and lycra—durable, reusable, and in the end, recyclable). These bags are a little different than the typical reusable bags you see around most of the time, and the fun part is that they’re super-stretchy to accommodate whatever you need to put in them.

I have a Confetti What’Surbag sitting here that’s going to go out to one lucky Want Not reader. If you don’t want to use it for a reusable grocery bag, my daughter has assured me there are a thousand things she could use it for, please please pleeeeeease, Mom, so I’m guessing any tween/teen girl would find it pretty hip and happening.

Want to win it? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, March 29th, 2010 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and elasticity.

Ready? Go!


  1. That is one cute polka dot bag!

  2. That looks like an awesome bag. I’d love to win!

    probably not, but it’s worth a shot!

  4. Would love to try this.

  5. Love these bags! I could use it for knitting, or the grocery store, or the farmer’s market or . . .

  6. me, me, me, please! it’s a fruitless try, but i do it anyway. hope springs eternal. i’ve been growing tired of these plastic bags that are forever in my way. they make nice lunch bags, but really…i’m beginning to rethink it. i’d love to try this one!

  142. I’m not very elastic-y, so I suppose that means I’m mainly out of the running. Or…maybe you like rooting for the underdog…? 😀
