Did we mention the bonus includes this adorable tote bag?

We can confirm it’s strong… we’ve carried A LOT in our tote bags (one time 8 litres of coconut milk!). We can also confirm that it’s not one of those icky tote bags that brush up against you and leave fluff/dust/bits-of-tote-bag on your clothes. Anyone else had that issue before?

Oh and also the straps are long enough to go over your shoulder… this is VERY effective when you’re trying to do the 1 trip from car to kitchen thing.

Always merrymaking,
