"They can be made of plastics or fabrics, whatever your mix don't miss out and join Send Me a Tote & a Note #6! The previous ones have been so fun and have a lot of requests to make it a series. So are you along for the ride?

This swap is so simple, and since so many of you asked for this again, I set up round six. Remember, ** Simple a Tote & a Note**

Let's work together to get rid our world of those nasty plastic bags one swap at a time. Your totes can range as low as $2.00 to $5.00 but really should be any more than that.

Totes can be handmade or store bought I have seen some beautiful handmade totes and strong great store totes. It is up to you for your region and what you have available. Have fun with it.

They are available in cloth that is recycled plastic, denim, and canvas. You can buy them at any store, I have seen them at Michaels, Target, TJ Maxx, Nugget Supermarket, Trader Joes, your local markets and each of them is adorable. They are available at musuems, parks, and so on! ** I have the minimum rating to join at 4.9 **

I have seen some lovely sewn totes and all you sewers are making me jealous with envy! : ) So hurry and sign up. Simply include a note for your partner sharing something fun and off you go to the postal office.

I will angel ones that are dropped after researching it.

Sorry this go around, no newbies - I had to angel too many for newbies last go around.

I am setting up three swaps: one for USA only, one for USA/Canada, and one for International swappers.

Hope to see you all on board and let's work together to save our environment. One swap at a time.

What do you consider as a newbie? I would like to join one of the tote swaps but would prefer not to do the international one.

A newbie is someone who doesn't have many swaps under their belt and are looking to get a rating going on.

BHope that helps.

I would LOVE to join and I have the perfect tote to send (It's GIGANTIC - I have a few of them and they're sturdy and hold a LOT of groceries)... anyway my point is that the only way I could mail it out would be to fold and roll it which is going to leave it quite wrinkled. It wouldn't bother ME but it might bother someone else. Any ideas on how to ship them? Thanks!

hello Rachelcdoyle - okay to fold mail out like that. I fold mine three times and place it in an enevelope. Easy. Thanks. Linda

The picture of the tote bag is just awesome!! Wish I could buy this in the Netherlands..

I did a couple of these and am back for more.... I get compliments all the time on my cool tote bags! I have a stash I keep adding to so I have a variety to choose from when sending time comes.

raesha 07/28/2011 #

I've done one of these as well - it was so much fun! Can't wait to join in again.

Just for the record...... any time you have to stuff anything and can possibly roll it.... including packing in a suitcase full of clothes.... roll them all... no wrinkles, and if it does end up with some they hang right out...... just a bit of info for thought..... and so I am sharing.....

jennifergordon 07/30/2011 #

This is my first time joining this swap. It does seem like a lot of fun. As for the note-how long should it be? and what do you want us to write about? Thanks to any and all for help :)
