Pack-It Freezable Lunch Bag Review

Just wanted to share something that my family uses quite often and loves. It's a Pack-It Freezable Bag.

Last year we were looking for something to take to Disney to keep our water bottles in. We were going in the middle of July and knew water would be really pricey.

I saw this little bag at my local WalMart and loved it. It's small enough to fit in a backpack, still keep our drinks cold, and not get everything else wet when it defrosted. 

It can hold 5-6 bottles (depending on their size) and keeps them cool all day.

It was super easy to use we would stick the bag in the freezer each night and fill it each morning. 

This year we used it for our trip to the beach. I love that it's not bulky.

It's perfect for school or work lunches, baby formula or for adding to a picnic basket to keep stuff like mayonnaise from going bad.

They are sold at WalMart, Bed, Bath and Beyond and online at and come in loads of colors and patterns.  They cost $18-$24 depending on where you buy. 

Feel free to share your comments or experiences with this product below. I'd love to hear them.

Printable Binder Covers

I have 3 kids in school this coming year (7th, 9th and 11th grade). Let me just tell you that they have used A LOT of binders over the years.

Here's a quick tip, check your local thrift stores year round and pick up any binders in good condition. Shopping at your local office supply store gets real pricey when you need to buy multiple 2-3" binders.

When shopping in your local second hand/thrift store make sure they are in good shape and will last. They can't be ripping at the sides and they must close well.  My kids prefer that they have a clear front pocket to add their own cover to make it personalized.

Since there were so many cute designs out there, I thought I would share a few that you can print out and use from sites all over their web. There are so many more. This is just a sampling. Enjoy!
