The Shopping Bags

“Their show’s a hit, they’ve published a book, “The Shopping Bags”, and they’ve become media darlings…”
– Metro

The Shopping Bags is where it all started. Anna & Kristina combined their background in broadcasting, their penchant for research, and their love of shopping into an award-winning show that took an in-depth look at shopping for everyday consumer products. Anna and Kristina tested everything from all-purpose cleaners to lawnmowers, mascara to the family car. And after all their tests and research for each segment, they determined the best product for the job, even though sometimes they didn’t always agree!
