    I have to give my fabulous mother credit for this find! They are great for OOT bags and come in about 12 or 15 colors. They had several shades of blue (navy, teal, baby blue) and several shades of green (forest, kelly, lime) and pink, red, black, yellow, white, etc.

    They are very similar to the ones you buy at the grocery store (the re-usable ones that i hope you all use rather than plastic bags!). Anyway, they are bigger than the grocery store ones:

    17 inches long (from left to right)
    6.5 inches wide (from front to back)
    15 inches deep (from top to bottom if standing up like its filled)

    They dont hold water like cotton and lay flat/easy to pack, but dont have a zipper or pocket.

    Best thing - they are $1.49!!!

    You can't buy them online though. I live about 15 miles from the nearest Garden Ridge, but I would be willing to make a trip if you need me to.

    Oh - sorry for the bad pics - its a camera phone + office lighting.

          I would assume all of them, but I went out to the one in Mesquite. There's another one in Lewisville and one in Grand Prairie. None by downtown which is where I live.

          And the pics make them look fluorescent. They are bright, but not glowing! I think its the fluorescent lights in here :)

                  Ha I bought 30 of those but then returned them...they were HUGE and we are giving one per person. I was afraid that we wouldnt have the funds to fill them. But they are great. So many colors and a great price. They were $1.00 each when I bought them so I guess GR realized they are popular. Let me know if anyone needs me to grab some for you!!

                    Thanks for the info! I found them at my GR and bought several. They are pretty big, but I plan to put towels in them so I think they will work perfect! Thanks again for sharing your great find!
