As most of you know by now, I spend a lot of time caring for my indoor orchids and working out in the garden. A few years ago, I was flipping through the Sky Mall catalog on the plane and saw something I new I had to have. Like most things in there, this one was a bit more than I wanted to spend. With catalog page in hand, I scoured the internet trying to find something similar that was a little more budget friendly. After just a few minutes of research, I FOUND IT! The Fiskars Phone & Garden Pocket!!!
I found this absolutely amazin’, simply handy dandy, garden pocket on sale at Amazon for $45.23 (with Free Shipping.) This little number was a whopping 55% off the regular price of $99.99 (SKY MALL PRICES!). After reading the reviews (read a few below), I knew it was the one.
Now that I had a brand in mind, I spent a few more minutes trying to find a better price. And I did….Are you ready???? I found the Fiskars Phone & Garden Pocket on sale for $14.95 and FREE Shipping! 85% off the Sky Mall Price! Wooohoo!
I use my “garden purse” to hold my phone, keys, water and bug spray! I absolutely love it!!
Here’s the description from the website:

“This handy hip caddy holds a phone and other items like pruning shears. It even has enough space for a pencil and note pad! Adjustable strap for a loose or snug fit. This is not just for gardening. Tailgate parties, day at the beach. It goes were you go! Hands free! And it even has a clip for keys. It’s all that and a bag of chips!”
“Bought this almost seven years ago, and it’s still in use today. Have used it for yard work and gardening, working on the car, as a general tool belt and even as an organizer while moving a couple of times. It has an adjustable waist strap, or one can just sling it over the shoulder, and there’s a cinch that will keep your cell phone from falling out in the midst of a dense weed patch… as had happened once before I had this wonderful and handy accessory.
Must admit that I was skeptical about how long the plastic clasp and key ring snap would last, but they’re never failed once, and unlike the “rugged steel hardware” on another product, they won’t ever rust. The phone pocket is padded on the inside, protecting an expensive cell phone from being damaged by other sharp items you might be carrying. There’s plenty of room for carrying garden scissors, snippers, pruners and much more in the larger pockets, and the rugged plastic mesh on the bottom of the pouch keeps various tools and implements well ventilated, eliminating moisture damage.”
