bag wine is the new black and a summer must-have

I have a new favorite thing, and it will be no surprise to read that it comes from Trader Joes.

Check it:

Trader Joes Bagged WineThough box wine has it’s perks, the negative connotation associated with it is usually enough to deter most folks from buying it. Enter Trader Joes Eco Vino–wine in a bag!

Get a load of all the perks:

  • It’s cost-effective: $9.99 for 1.5 Liters (equivalent to two bottles)
  • 80% less carbon footprint that two glass bottles & 90% less waste & less landfill than two glass bottles
  • Light-weight, easy to carry, easy to pack & durable
  • Perfect for the pool, park, alcohol-friendly beach or any outdoor area
  • Air tight tap, stays fresh for up to a month
  • And? it’s a perfect light white wine for hot summer days.

This bag of yumminess is chic and trendy and you’ll be the hit of the party.

I have a feeling these things are going to fly off the shelf so grab yourself a few.
And check out my news segment on Fox 5 news tomorrow morning (Monday, July 4th) at 7:50 am and 9:00 am, where I’ll be talking about more summer must-haves for moms and kids.

    Alcohol friendly beaches? These little jewels are actually perfect for those beaches that are NOT alcohol friendly. Easy to hide in the cooler!

    Don’t judge. You know you want to do it.

      I was thinking the SAME thing. You read between the lines. Good for you. : ) Let me know if you try this wine, not at the beach.

    Ok. That’s it!!! I’m going to Trader Joe’s. Why haven’t I been there yet? I keep hearing about how fabulous it is and yet I have not been there. Shame on me.
    No more excuses. I’m heading there Tuesday! Must have this awesome wine and all of there other uber fabulous items.

    • Mary says:

      Still can’t believe you haven’t been to TJs. I am working on a vlog about my favorite items. Will tweet it to you when it’s done. You’ll be a convert after only one visit.

    Sounds like a trip to the city is in order. Thank you for this tip. I”m always looking for new finds at Trader Joe’s.
    Happy 4th of July!
    Hey, we were in your neck of the woods last week. Spent a day at Sea World. Hubby has to pick up our magazines at a print facility in Anaheim, and this is the first time in 3+ years that we turned it into a family trip.
