Carry Green, Jute Bags & More – A Review

20140411-191744.jpgI had the opportunity to try out Carry Green bags.*  Wow!  I am in awe!  I received the samples you see in the picture to the left, and below you can see how I use them.  Jute is burlap, and all the samples I received were made of jute- just different sizes.   These bags are Eco-friendly, and earth friendly.  I absolutely love them!  I have been using the Seebug Urchin Tote BagJUTE NAVY (Seebug Urchin Bucket Tote) bag pictured here.  It has a beautiful design and strong large handles and a zipper on the top to keep all my stuff inside and safe from falling in the car.  I have been using it for a week now to carry my laptop and work projects, and it has worked out beautifully.  These bags are strong!  I put a laptop, cords, and all sorts of projects in it and it has managed to not fall apart, or tear.  Unlike some of the reusable grocery bags you get for free, these bags are very sturdy and strong.   drawstring burlap smallI traveled last week and used the small burlap drawstring jute bag for my shoes.  There is a tie at the top so I could close it.  It worked out great, and everything stays in its place!20140411-191734.jpg

The wine bags are so cute, and if you give wine as a gift, these are great, and re-usable.  See mine pictured below.  This could possibly be my favorite, well, other than the Seebug Urchin Tote pictured to the right and above.  We took it to a friend’s house.  I actually wanted mine back though.  But, at carrygreen, you can buy in bulk, so you can have plenty on hand.  Imagine giving gifts in these bags instead of those not so sturdy paper bags you give gifts 20140411-210113.jpgin routinely.  You can put kids’ presents in them as well.  I love getting reusable totes with presents.  The paper ones simply do not compare.

20140411-210037.jpgAlso, you can put your groceries in them.  Here is a picture of the medium size jute burlap tote bags with groceries inside.  They are extremely sturdy and can hold a lot of groceries.  Then, the handles are very comfortable even on your shoulders.  They do not cut into your shoulder which is nice.

small gift toteI also tried out the small Jute burlap wedding party gift bag.  Of course, you don’t have to use it for a wedding gift, but you can get it printed with a logo or symbol too!  You can gift these, or use them to transport things.  My mom loves using small bags for when she goes to the store (in place of a purse) or just for an outing.  Whatever you choose to use them for, they are great bags.  For example, you can put snacks in it and head to the park.  Perfect size!

carrygreenlogoFor shopping, and groceries, or the beach or for fun, these bags are Eco-friendly, sturdy and quite nice to use.  Check out Carry Green today and let me know what you think.    You can order samples too, and then order in bulk.  Such a great find – I feel so lucky to get to try them out, and it’s something I believe in too – Eco, Earth-friendly reusable bags of all shapes, sizes, and purposes that look nice and last!  And bonus: All orders ship for free, and there is a sale going on right now so check out Carry Green.

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa – Arvada

logoInteriorThe Arvada location of Hand & Stone Massage/Facial Spa is now open!  And if you act now in April, and book your introductory $49.95 massage or facial or other service, you can get a $15 value for free!  Check out the Arvada location, and make sure you tell them you saw it there at Get Clued In Colorado.  The deal is below, so print it out and take it with you.

Book and Appointment free upgradeHere is how Hand & Stone works, so try them out today.  Go in for your introductory offer, then you can become a member or not.  But for one-time registration fee, you are a member, and then you get the member rate on massages, facials, and other services.  My mother in law gave me a special treat for my birthday this year, and I spent it all at Hand & Stone.  I did both the introductory massage and facial, and now, without a contract (I can cancel with just 30 days notice), I have a guaranteed service every month of my choice valued at $59.95.  All additional services are at the member rate.  It’s so much better than Massage Envy too because there is no obligation to continue for a year, and my packages (should I miss a month) carry over.  It’s like roll-over minutes- yeah!  If you have a flex spending account, and your doctor prescribes therapeutic massage, etc., you can maybe get reimbursed too!

Spa-Party-Generic--Rev-11-4-13UPDATE LADIES:  A special ladies’ spa night is coming up.  Check out the deets and RSVP today if you can make it.  I will be there, and hope to see you there!  I attended tonight and it was awesome.  Stay tuned for more fun nights like this one.  You will not want to miss it.  I was able to try out all four services and an added bonus of a peppermint scalp massage with a glass of wine.  What fun!

Give them a try, and take the special offer with you!  Enjoy!   For the next 3-4 days, there is a groupon available if you want to try out one or two of their services:
