  1. I love the carabiner clip for the bags - I don't know why that didn't occur to me sooner! Austin has a no bag rule so you have to take your own grocery totes in with you.

    1. Yes, there are several cities around us that have no bag rules, too!

  2. I love the carabiner clip idea, though I'd keep in on my bags. I hate bulky key rings! ;-) Also, what is that piece called that is hanging from your laundry soap dispenser? That's a nifty idea that I'd like to do to keep my dispenser from leaking!

    1. Mary - that's a Tidy Cup drip catcher. You can find it here: http://amzn.to/1ekYO5U

    2. Fantastic! Thank you so much. =D
