Collapsible tote bags make a great substitute for reusable shopping bags

On the way home from work the other day, I stopped in Kroger to grab some items for dinner.  As I was getting out of the car, I realized that I had left my reusable bags at home. This particular Kroger offers gas points or a few cents off your bill if you use reusable shopping bags. I’ve never been one to walk away from a discount, so I was determined to find something to use as a shopping bag. I keep this tote bag in my trunk in case I run into a yard sale or estate sale so I used it for my impromptu shopping trip. I can’t believe it hadn’t occured to me to use it before. It was perfect.  It’s a collapsible floral tote bag made by Three Wishes and it’s the best bag ever. It’s made of canvas and has a very sturdy aluminum frame. It has a top that zips closed and padded handles so it’s comfortable to carry.

This bag has turned into my favorite all around bag. I’m a yard sale/estate sale junkie and I carry it to all of my sales. It was given to me as a gift a couple of years ago but I didn’t use it until recently because I was afraid it was too fragile. Boy was I wrong. It’s 20 x 12 x 12 and carried tons of stuff (from cast iron to pyrex). The best part is that it collapses when I’m not using it so it doesn’t take up a lot of space. I tried to find the bag on the internet and couldn’t find one like it but I found some that were very similiar. Reisenthel has some really cute bags on Amazon. I have to admit that this isn’t a bag I would have ever thought to buy for myself but I can’t live without it now. This has been the best gift I’ve gotten in years.
