Living Green With Jerinda Giveaway: Kirkland's Insulated Lunch Tote [CLOSED]

"Kirkland’s is a leading specialty retailer of home décor in the United States, operating approximately 303 stores in 29 states. The stores present a broad selection of distinctive merchandise, including framed art, mirrors, candles, lamps, picture frames, accent rugs, garden accessories and artificial floral products. The stores offer a unique combination of style and value that has led to our emergence as a leader in home décor and has enabled the company to develop a strong customer loyalty."

I was sent a beautiful reusable lunch tote to review, which I was grateful to get.  I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t aware of the Kirkland’s brand when I was offered this lunch tote, but was thrilled to be offered something girly to use for myself. Being the mom of two boys, I don’t usually get to have pink and frilly things around, so I chose the girliest print they had.



This lunch tote is very large, much larger than I had expected, and its print is both stylish and beautiful. It boasts that it holds up to 6 beverages, I believe that. It has a durable handle, a zipper closure, is insulated, and has a storage pouch in the front, perfect for utensils and napkins. It is very durable and will last for a long time with gentle use and is big enough to hold any lunch or even lunch for a couple people. It can be considered a Green product, too, because it is reusable and reduces waste. If you wanted to be really wasteless, you could even use reusable items inside to eliminate all garbage in your lunch.



As I said, I wasn’t familiar with Kirkland’s before, but am now and know that I can expect good quality items from this retailer. This Kirkland’s Lunch Tote retails for $9.99 and is available in-store only.
