Weekend Giveaway: Better Life Bags Nesting Pouches

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

To say I’m super excited about today’s giveaway would be a HUGE understatement. I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to be able to share today’s featured business — Better Life Bags —  with all of you.

Better life bags (a Michigan-based small business) was founded by Rebecca after her first son was born in 2009. Her initial goal was to make a cute diaper bag for herself — but since then it has grown into SO MUCH MORE than that!

She still creates one-of-a-kind custom bags, but she does so while giving back to her local Detroit, MI, community and helping all sorts of women in need.

You see, each Better Life Bag is made by a special women in Rebecca’s local community who otherwise would not have a job. Rebecca finds these women, teaches them how to sew her bags, and provides them with an income — and more importantly dignity,  honor, and respect.

So while the Better Life Bags are not necessarily the cheapest bags on the market, they are so much more than just bags. They are an opportunity for all of us to give back and do more than just purchase fashionable bags for the women on our Christmas list this year.

I hope that as you begin your holiday shopping this year, you’ll consider purchasing a Better Life Bag — here are a few of my favorites:

  1. iPhone/Cell Phone Cozy
  2. Reusable Lunch Bag
  3. Emily Diaper Bag
  4. Clara Lynn Market Tote

Oh, and I absolutely love their Children’s A-Z Prayer Cards — the perfect Christmas gift for teachers, coaches, parents, grandparents, etc.


However, my most favorite product from Better Life Bags is their set of 3 Nesting Pouches.

Not only are these pouches the perfect size to organize almost anything in your purse, diaper bag, gym bag, carry-on bag, or any other bag; they also “nest” inside of each other for super easy storage.

I use my nesting pouches in place of our diaper bag when we’re just going on a quick trip or I don’t feel like lugging the diaper bag around.

The largest nesting pouch is the perfect size for 3 diapers and a travel size package of wipes; the middle pouch is great for a burp cloth and a couple small toys; the smallest pouch stores some baby snacks and a pacifier.

These bags come in tons of super cute fabrics (both outside and inside the bag) so you can customize them for anyone on your Christmas list this year.

I’m always a huge fan of supporting local businesses, especially those that give back to their community. So since Better Life Bags fits both categories AND they offer so many super cute products, I’m simply thrilled to be sharing them with you today.

Of course, a fun giveaway is just an added bonus!
