We use a lot of Tupperware/Rubbermaid and also re-use baggies...I would guess we spend maybe ten bucks a year on baggies?
Sure would love a lovely Lunchskin for our out-of-the-house adventures! Thank you for the offer.
I got tired of my signature, but I still love my children and husband and miss my little brother.
Oh, I would LOVE to win these!!! I have no idea how much we've spent on plastic baggies over the last year, but I'd guess....at least a box per month at around $4 each, so, close to $50? (and that's just the smaller-sized lunch ones; if you count the larger food-storage ones, it would be way more!) And that's even with homeschooling up until now, so we only packed lunch/snacks for going out and often ate meals at home - now that 3 of my 4 kids will be going to school in a few weeks, I need these badly! I did try another brand before, but they were hard to clean (not dishwasher safe like this product!)

I'm sure we spend over $100 a year on disposable plastic baggies. It kills me because I hate throwing them away. i try to reuse them but with 2 kids in care and needling lunch and 2 snacks a day it's nearly impossible to fill their backpacks with tupperware. If I don't get lucky (heh) and get a set to try out, I'm certainly going to try and find them locally. Though living on an island off the edge of a continent makes that more of a challenge than you'd think! :)

I would say we've spent around $15 on the lunch-sized plastic zip bags. Double that if you include the larger plastic zip bags. I've always wanted to try out the reusables though, would be so excited if I won these, woohoo!

I spend about 24 dollars a year. I buy two boxes of baggies a month from the dollar store, sometimes I use a small plastic sandwhich box instead but I'd rather not use either of those. I have been wanting to try these. We are close to having a trash free lunch. My sons school uses cloth napkins and real flatware, no plastics or paper. They provide water in real glasses so there are no juice boxes. Baggies are the last thing for us to cut out.
We spend about $30 a year. I re-use our plastic ziplock bags or use tupperware containers to try to limit how many plastic bags we use, but there are still some snacks that fit better in them. So I would be interested in trying the re-usable ones.

I've spent way too much on plastic bags this last year. My husband uses between two and three of them a day in his lunch. We try to reuse when we can. I would probably say around 20 or 30 dollars in the last year. Goodness.
I'm not sure how much we spend on bags, but we have 3 school children. I would guess $10 or so per year - I'm not brand loyal and we try to use reusable items for packing snacks and lunch when we can. These reusable bags look nice and using the dishwasher to clean them would be a nice option.
I would love to try these reuasble bags out! I hate using disposable stuff, so I try not to use plastic bags whenever possible, other than for freezer storage...we do use reusable plastic containers for snacks...which can be awkward to fit in bags. Anyways, I hope I am lucky and win the chance to try these. :)
These look great! I have spent less than $10 on plastic sandwich bags over the last year, thanks to re-usable bags. But they're falling apart (not this brand!), so I need new ones! I love that these can go in the dishwasher. That's even easier than throwing them in the wash!
We probably spend about $10-$15 a year (disposable tupperware and baggies)... What I feel horrible about is the throwing them away part!! Trying to minimize some footprints over here! , plus I would love to try something cuter than tupperware (at least my daughter would)!
