i like dirt

I feel the need to briefly promote the "big blue bags" that Ikea stores are promoting. Starting back in March, Ikea stores began charging 5 cents per plastic bag and 59 cents to purchase reusable big blue bags. It is an effort to encourage people to "go green" and stop using plastic bags. We purchased four of them and that was the the best $2.36 I think I have ever spent. These bags rock! Not only did we cart home our Ikea buys, but we have used these for groceries and Sam's Club shopping ever since.They are so sturdy and easy to carry (were they designed by a Swedish MIT graduate?) that we can usually get all of our shopping up to our second floor apartment in one trip. Convenient and eco-friendly, how can you go wrong with that????Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.....for the love of all things Holy!!! :)

P.S. the picture is a photo of one of the pieces submitted for the Providence Street Painting. I don't know who the artist is but you can check out the event details at
