We have been using BooLoo Bags for almost twenty years now and we are still discovering new uses all the time! Last weekend we bought fresh clam chowder that you heat up in boiling water right in the bag- so we heated it, threw it in our BooLoo and headed to Duxbury Beach. We served it 6 1/2 hours later and it was still screaming HOT! Big hit with the lobsters and farm fresh corn on the cob. Also in Duxbury this month my friends and I volunteered at the Duxbury Beach Triathlon- we brewed coffee at 5:00 a.m. and threw the whole carafe in a BooLoo Bag. Not sure what to expect, we unzipped the BooLoo Bag at 10:30 a.m. and filled our cups- guess what…..too HOT to drink! The last new use this month was the flowers!!! BooLoo Bags are awesome for transporting beautiful fresh cut flowers for a house warming gift; no water spills in the back of your car and the flowers arrive in perfect condition.
This was the longest I can ever remember Duxbury Beach being closed, but once it did finally open in Mid-July – everyone settled right into their summertime beach routine…including Barrett.

Barrett is a pretty lucky Golden Retriever as he gets to spend most of his sunny days hanging out on the beach; living the good life with his parents, Linda and Steve Romano. We always love to see Golden Retrievers, Dxubury Beach & BooLoo Bags in the same picture!
Every month we find a new use for our BooLoo Bags. This past week my stepmother had a total knee replacement and we were there with our BooLoo Bags to help out. Anyone who has had knee/hip/shoulder surgery knows how painful these procedures can be; anything that makes you more comfortable is a blessing. When my parents arrived home from the hospital they were exhausted. I made a turkey pie and cooked it on 400 degrees. When it was done I wrapped it in a dish towel and packed it in one of my BooLoo Bags piping hot right out of the oven. Then I remembered from my knee surgery you can’t have enough ice for those awesome ice machines they send you home with, so I packed two twenty pound bags of ice in another BooLoo Bag to bring over. Of course what woman doesn’t like fresh cut flowers. I filled the bottom of my Blockpack with water and stuffed the flowers right in; it worked out perfect! The Blockpack fit right behind the seat of my car, never tipped over and the flowers arrived fresh and beautiful with plenty of water.
My dream kitchen is about 10 years away, so until then – one oven, a tiny fridge and BooLoo Bags are how we are going to cook for 30 people and have everything hot and cold at the same time! I know I have been hosting Easter for about 6 years, and every holiday I am grateful to have my BooLoo Bags around to help make the holiday and the meal a great success. When the ham was done, we stuffed it in a BooLoo Bag while we cooked the macaroni & cheese and Easter potatoes. Timing worked out perfect, everyone was able to enjoy everything that was suppose to be hot HOT! (and the sodas, beers, fruit and dessert were on the deck staying cold in their BooLoo Bags) What a beautiful day not to spend in the kitchen thanks to our BooLoo Bags!
What a great month December was! Another record breaking month for BooLoo Bags, we doubled our sales over last year. I am still learning and growing thanks to feedback from all of my BooLoo Bag owners. We brought in several new products this year and the response has been great so far.
As I continue to move existing product, I will bring in new designs. If you have a graphic design idea, email me- if I think I can move fifty of them I will bring the design in! I am looking forward to another great year with BooLoo Bags! Thank you to everyone who purchased a BooLoo Bag in 2012!!!! Happy New Year! Leslie
Jay, Shadow and I headed up to Maine on Friday to look at a new car; we had never stayed overnight with a dog in a hotel but we thought we would try it. We packed two BooLoo Bags for the mini trip – one with soda & water and one with some fun beers. We hit the rest area in Kennebunk on the way up to the dealership; Shadow loved the ice water we dumped into his dish from the BooLoo Bag! After a long afternoon wheeling and dealing it was time to head back to our hotel room in Portsmouth, NH. As soon as we pulled in, we fed him and let him hit the BooLoo Bag again for more ice water and headed to the lobby to check in.
Shadow was a ham; everyone loved him- he was so excited and a little nervous as this was a first for all of us! Up to our room we went, expecting a beat up “pet room” – but it was perfect. Shadow sniffed around while Jay and I hit the fun beers in the BooLoo Bag, the temperature up the beers in the BooLoo Bag never gets old….freezing cold and sooooo goooood! (plus a huge savings on the mini bar, only had to buy the peanut m&m’s for $3.75 On our ride home the next day we were psyched to have a cooler with some ice cold waters and sodas and an empty BooLoo Bag to put our lobster in. Our stay was fabulous, we loved walking around Portsmouth – had two fantastic meals – Shadow was great and we are looking forward to our next adventure with the dog and our BooLoo Bags!
- Shadow settled right in to hotel life
Jay hit the course this past weekend with our newest product: Nine Pack Boo.
We have had a lot of requests for a smaller BooLoo Bag, so we decided to introduce our Nine Pack Boo sample. We have been carting it around for the last month filling with a little bit of everything and we decided…. we love the new size! Perfect for the small jaunt; kids sports, neighbors for a couple of coldies, deli meats, hot chowder quarts, etc. Golfers- you will love this new size too. Jay said it was perfect for the day; Nine Pack Boo fit nice and snug in the cart, beverages were cold all day and for the first time Jay’s golf bag was not leaking water We should have our first products in by November; as we have some color and graphic design choices to make – we will take any suggestions!! Call or email the company anytime.
A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I wasn’t sure what to expect heading up to my brother’s new hunting camp located in Burnham, Maine. We talked briefly about what we would pack & then we loaded up the truck with the log splitter,the kids, the dog and tons of BooLoo Bags and headed North for long weekend. We knew it would take us at least 4 hours to get there so we filled one of our “Blockpacks” with ice and cold drinks for everyone for the ride up - as we already spend enough at the gas stations. The weather was gorgeous when we arrived; right away I knew we were going to love it! The driveway is lined with acres of apple orchards, the whole camp overlooks a beautiful meadow and the brand new shed is stocked with quads & snowmobiles! Unpacking these days is getting easier and easier; we each had a small duffel bag and we left all our food and beverages right in the BooLoo Bags on the porch. We had some lunch and headed out to work on the trails. Whether we were going out for just a ride on the quads or to work, we always bungied a BooLoo filled with ice and beverages. Shadow and Brodie are some of the Blockpacks biggest fans, they know the ice water on the bottom of the bag is the coldest it gets without being frozen! The weekend was so fun for all of us, we can’t wait to go back!!!!
Brown’s Bank is one of the greatest sandbars of all times. This little island comes out at low tide and becomes “The Caribbean” of Plymouth, Mass. Soft white sand, warm tidal pools and beautiful sunshine make Brown’s Bank a favorite among boaters and also one of the best places to see “The Square Cooler Fight”. This past Sunday we watched hundreds of people lugging their square coolers on and off their boat. We noticed that it is usually the last item off the boat and the last item back on because no one wants to carry it. The square cooler usually takes two people and if it’s a husband and wife, there is usually a fight. We hear, “are you lifting your side?” “just pick the *$%@ing thing up!” ”What did you pack in here, bricks?” Watching and listening to The Square Cooler Fight continues to motivate me to sell more BooLoo Bags!
Brown's Bank loves BooLoo Bags
When we boat, we head out with tons of boat bags and tons of BooLoo Bags. They are easy to load on and off the boat, easy to store without wasting space and light enough to walk up and down the boat ramps at low tide. Thanks Red and Linda for a great day on Brown’s Bank!!!!
Wait what? A live band on Brown's Bank?
