Eco-conscious, Inexpensive Tote for Beach, diapers, travel, or shopping

I've recently discovered Mixed Bag Designs, I received my order yesterday and the bags are everything I had hoped and more! Today I started to play around with the Hold Everything Tote and the Tote-ally cool zip top bag. Holy Smokes can you fit a lot. I decided to pack the zip top bag (which is the same size essentially as the Lexie Barnes smaller redondo tote if anyone remembers those) with what I would take to the beach.

I packed up a Built NY Six Pack Tote with beer, water, soda and a baby bottle (just to see how well it fit), a Built NY Gourmet Getaway with lunch, a Built NY Fugu Lunch tote with sunscreen and first aid kit (you never know!), my JuJuBe BeMajor with my wallet essentials, two minime wetbags with a change of clothes - perfect for wet clothes later, a Ju Ju Be Be Quick with snacks and a couple of beach towels. I zipped up the tote and it all fit perfectly!



This bag would be perfect for travel, perfect for a along weekend, as an inexpensive diaper bag, for camp, the uses go on and on!
I then put it next to the Hold Everything tote. I could fit the entire zip tote in there on top of a large blanket and more towels. It would also be great for toy storage or for a yarn/fabric stash if you are a crafter. It's enormous. It should even be perfect to pack for a long road trip!

I'm very impressed, particularly for the price point. Now these aren't going to last forever but the straps are double sewn so they are very secure and the bag looks sturdy. The zipper is the only question I have as far as how long it would last.

I'd love to use one of the bags to carry all of my re-usable totes to the stores (Target, grocery shopping, etc.). I have a bunch of non-matching tote bags that I like to use. It would be great to have a little fashionable tote to carry them all!

Or...for a picnic! :D

I am always on the look out for the perfect "annex" bag. The one that I need to fill up with extraneous kid stuff -- but don't want to carry around with me in stores and such. The Hold Everything Tote seems to fit the bill perfectly!

Wow they are really pretty! I love the look of the zippered tote. Would be really handy to cart around extra kid stuff, shopping etc. with nice long handles and a zipper keeping everything from flying all over the car.
