Why tote bags are a must have

 In Ngunis, Tote Bags

A girl can never have too many bags! Tote bags are multi-tasking handbags, and for the woman on the go, often conceal the essentials necessary for everyday life. Usually unfastened and made from cloth, tote bags come in a range of sizes and have a multitude of uses. They also come in an abundance of varied designs. Thanks to their reusable nature, they will last you for years to come. Whether it’s for work, play, or running errands, there are plenty of fashionable and functional styles available.

They are:

  • A fashion accessory – not only are they fashionable because of the design but they are also functional. The design ideas are endless. Whether you prefer canvas bags, leather bags or just material bags, your tote is unique.
  • Large in size – they are big and roomy and can hold lots of stuff. This can be a catch 22 as it is difficult to find everything but if you pack light this won’t be a problem!
  • Versatile – They have a million uses! They come in slightly different sizes and styles, but tote bags have basically all the same design.
  • Durable – They are long lasting and if taken care of they will last you for years.
  • Re-Usable – They can be re-used again and again. They aren’t designed for anything specific but can be used for sports, work, school and play. This is also great for the environment!
  • Great gift ideas – A good quality tote bag makes an excellent gift, mainly because they have many uses and will last for a long time.

You could use them for:

  • Shopping – It might be self-explanatory as tote bags can sometimes be referred to as “shopping totes,” but this kind of bag is perfect as a way of bringing shop-bought items home. Whether your shopping for food or fashion, this bag is durable, sturdy and big!
  • Work or school – They are a great place to keep your books and files. They will also fit your laptop for meetings and classes.
  • A daytime purse – They can be the ultimate fashion accessory. Whether you’re running errands or simply need a bag to hold all your personal items as you go to meet your girlfriends, opt for a large leather tote to make a serious style statement. Alternatively, you can choose a great print or pop of colour.
  • The Beach – Your towel and sunscreen will fit perfectly in your tote! You can buy fun, printed designs with fabric handle variations, such as rope, to serve as your new beach BFF.
  • Home storage – Hang them up on hooks in the bathroom as a way of keeping your toiletries altogether. Alternatively, place them on your office shelf to hold all your stationary. Either way, tote bags are roomy, so they’re particularly useful when it comes to storing possessions around the house.
  • A picnic bag – Want to take your family on a quick picnic in the park but leave your big, chunky basket at home? Enter the tote. If you invest in one that’s large enough, you can fit all sorts of food and drink items in there.
  • The Gym – The Tote is a great alternative to a duffle bag. It will hold your towel, water bottle and foam roller with ease. It will also express your personality!
