The “it” bag

The “it” bag

Summer means outdoor gatherings, picnics and trips to the lake or beach. But it doesn’t matter whether you’re taking a road trip or taking a trip to the store (although, one is funner than the other), you’re gonna want to add my favorite bag to your collection. 😉

I used this bag to carry lunch for me and my husband while going through chemo.

It kept the food nice and cool and we made a picnic right there in the chemo suite.

PackIt freezable lunch and shopping bags are stylish, reusable and BPA free. Also, you can leave those bulky ice packs behind, because the WHOLE BAG goes in the freezer. (Say whaattt?)

That’s right. You fold the bag up, put in the freezer and when you need it, it’s ready to go.

PackIt’s patented built-in technology keeps items cool all day without ever needing ice packs. It’s so powerful that it can even drop the temperature of liquids 25 degrees within the first hour. —PackIt website

And Bento boxes, too!

It’s perfect for the men in your life, too. I bought my dad one and he loves it. This is mine but my dad has a solid black one.

Did I mention the wine bags?

I typically order them directly from PackIt online but I noticed you can now buy them at Home Depot Amazon and Target.
