I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when my groceries get all jumbled together, smashed, or even ruined because the bagger doesn’t take his or her time to neatly bag them.

I always make it a point to thank and compliment any cashier and/or bagger who neatly organizes my groceries by type (boxes together, fruits and veggies together, meats separate from everything else, etc). I appreciate their extra attention to detail and I find that they can usually fit more items in a smaller amount of space if they do it neatly.

Maybe I’m just really weird though 🙂

Well, because of my somewhat obsessive grocery packing regimen, I’m just a little giddy to share today’s giveaway with all of you… the CRESBI Crates!

Ok, so if you’re wondering what in the world a “CRESBI Crate” is, let me explain…

CRESBI is actually an acronym that stands for Collapsable Reusable, Environmentally friendly, Stackable, Box, Idea. This video does a nice job of demonstrating how the crates can be used.

Not only is CRESBI one of our January sponsors, they are also offering a very generous giveaway of their grocery shopping crates!

I’ve been using their Colossal 6 Pack which provides more than enough room for my weekly groceries. I love the bright colors, I love how quickly and easily the crates fold down, and I love that none of my groceries get smashed or end up rolling around in the back of my car on the way home.

Nora actually uses the baby CRESBI Crate to carry toys and other objects around the house. It’s pretty cute!

Being an organizer, I immediately thought of 101 other uses for the CRESBI crates — like toys, craft supplies, packing for a quick trip, potlucks, and so much more.

I know I had never seen anything like the CRESBI crates before… so if you’re new to this concept too, you might want to check out a few more of their YouTube video clips to see these crates in action.

Oh, but make sure you come back and enter the giveaway!

    When loading the car with my granddaughter, my purse, our water bottles, toddler backpack, coupons, etc., I put everything into a crate, except my granddaughter, and place it in the front seat so that everything is easily accessible and I can manage without dropping my things to and from the car while helping my granddaughter. Sure has made my life a little bit easier 🙂
