Trolley Bags Review

20c44fdb0dc737cc71ec2013af7167ca.jpgWe were lucky enough to be given a set of Trolley Bags UK to review-we LOVE them!

As a mum with 2 girls, weekly shopping trips and quite often not being able to park near my house plastic bags are a pain. Then these lovely bags came along! They roll up nice and small to fit in the boot of the car so I always have them to hand. Sometimes I will just take one bag into a shop if I only need a few bits.

In an age where we are thinking more about our planet and trying to save on rubbish and recycling these bags are a great solution! No more paying 5p either! 

Our first shopping trip with the bags was a bit of a novelty to the girls-as you can see they both had to carry them! They fit nicely in the trolley (we scanned as we shopped so had the bags open from the off) It made things so much easier being able to pack the shopping as we went and keeping frozen and chilled together, separate from fresh. Also very easy unpacking at home!

We used the express bags as we didn't have a huge shop to do, but since our first outing I regularly use these and the original larger bags. The bags are as easy to use as their videos show-even my husband uses them! The bags are strong enough to take a hold of shopping (great for families) d4a2d58f427fb733b3cd2b51bbb3accd.jpgand easily pull apart to load in the boot. 

At a retail price around £20, they are more expensive than a plastic bag or bag for life, but with an average shop probably using 6 plastic bags, plus the smaller shops in between when you need milk, bread, wine and chocolate these soon pay for themselves. 

Since our first outing with the Express Bags we have used our Trolley Bags for every shopping trip, even my Mum borrowed them to test them out! Guess what-she bought her own!

Naughty but nice Puddings!

Naughty but nice Puddings!

Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
