You Can Never Have Too Many Tote Bags

You Can Never Have Too Many Tote Bags - Kennedy Tote from RuMe

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I love tote bags. They can be useful in so many ways. I’ve taken tote bags on car trips, to the beach, to family get-togethers, and while shopping. I use them around the house, too, mostly to organize crochet or knit projects that I’m currently working on so they don’t get jumbled up together. I have tote bags from everywhere — mass retailers, conventions and other social events, souvenir shops, and grocery stores to name a few. I even have a couple of totes that are monogrammed with my initials.

My most recent tote bag acquisition is the Kennedy Tote from RuMe®. As tote bags go it’s not only beautifully designed but it is also incredibly sturdy and has extra long handles which I think is one of my favorite features. Some of my totes are so cute but the shorter handles can make it difficult to carry them over my shoulder when I’m headed out the door with both arms stuffed full of items I need while away from home.

With 27 unique styles and colors, it was hard to choose just one. I’m going to have to get another one (or two) very soon now that I’ve seen what good quality bags they are. My daughter (who also crochets) has a lot of tote bags, too. This will be a great gift idea for her birthday this year.

RuMe® totes are made in the USA and feature vegan leather handles that are very soft. Nothing aggravates me more than coarsely textured handles that dig into my skin. I think I hate that worse than getting a sunburn and all the discomfort that brings.

When traveling, we most often drive. We enjoy the scenery on road trips and like to stop off on occasion to unexpected attractions like roadside fruit stands, museums, national parks, or local eateries. You just can’t get those fun family experiences on a cramped airplane (and side note, the food’s not as good, either). Plus, with a family of five, flying can get expensive very quickly.

Must-haves in my tote bag for any road trip include whatever crochet project I happen to have to go at the moment, a novel, iPad, a book of puzzles, a notebook and pen, gum, a snack, and a travel pack of tissues. I get bored easily during long car rides and have to have a variety of things to keep me entertained. Otherwise, I’m likely to get sleepy and take a nap.

I travel a little lighter for a day at the beach or pool or while outside in the hot tub. Just a towel, sunscreen, a book, my phone, a brush and hair band, and a pack of gum are all I need.

You can use tote bags for so many things. I’ve used them to carry books and writing supplies, beach/pool items, gardening tools and plants, food and serving containers to school or family gatherings, extra clothes/sunscreen/bottled water for day trips to the park with the kids.

I think I have at least a dozen tote bags in a variety of sizes and styles; I use them for everything! What are your favorite ways to use tote bags?

    Looks like a great tote bag for the summer, & very versatile.

    Lol….I couldn’t help but laugh when you said you can never have too many tote bags. I sometimes refer to myself as the bag lady. I don’t know why I’m so drawn to them, but I love them. If I tire of a bag, I can always send stuff home with my adult kids in it.

    Tote bags are great for travel and storage. This one is super cute!

  4. Margaret S Porter says

    I keep tote bags in my car trunk. when im shopping I had rather use them or when im yard saling they are great for carrying my treasures.

  5. Darcy L Koch says

    I could not live without my tote bags. I have several and I use them often from carrying knitting supplies, things for the beach, to the grocery store for pick ups, etc. They come in real handy.

  6. Rosie says

    This is a nice tote! I’ve been looking for a laptop tote that is cute to replace the one I have, it has a padded sleeve inside. I just might get a plain tote and put the sleeve in it myself!

  7. Kristen Joiner says

    That is a really nice tote and it looks especially sturdy. I mainly keep tote bags in my car and they get used constantly, from picking up mail, groceries, random things I find in my car, or when I try to not take my full purse and change my mind later that I need one. They’re so useful.

  8. Deep, nice looking and made in the US, love that.

  9. Tracy Robertson says

    I mostly have reusable grocery bags, but I’ve been looking for a good tote bag to take my everyday stuff back and forth to work in. These look like a good choice and I’ll have to get out my tape measure, but the size sounds about right for my needs.

  10. CJ says

    I love tote bags! Perfect for carrying all kinds of stuff, I really like the look of that one! 🙂

  11. Eda says

    Tote bags are one of the greatest inventions for moms! 😀

  12. Gabrielle says

    What a cute bag! It looks sturdy and useful too.

  13. Michele says

    I love tote bags.. Have them in so many colors and patterns.. Maybe I am a bit obsessive about matching them to my outfits….
