Chico Bags assist at the green market, the beach, for toting toys and baby supplies on strollers, and for lugging around groceries. Now there’s a new Chico Messenger Bag for for school books, laptop, library books, sketch pads or books for the park. Be green with Chico – these bags can scrunch down to the size of an avocado to fit into a side pocket in your purse or coat. Choose your favorite model at http://www.chicobags.com.

Anyone who has small children knows the incredible value of a mattress protector, and Protect-A-Bed is the place to go (http://www.protectabed.com or Gracious Home stores) to find high-quality, plush, cotton, waterproof protection.
