The Tote BagHave you noticed how many people are walking around with tote bags these days?  They are used for groceries,  trips to the drugstore, and always at the beach.  As more cities and towns work to ban plastic bags, tote bags have become so important in our quest to live a more sustainable lifestyle.  I have a couple of favorite totes, including one made from old rice bags. (See my previous post for more fun totes)

The Tote Bag book + bag by Jitesh Patel is a collection of beautifully totes by designers and illustrators to inspire you to upgrade your current assortment. I have a new love of little birdies and there are a number of sweet totes I would love to get my hands on.  My other favorite is a kitchen inspired pattern of kitchen tools.  To learn more about these unique totes, please visit Jitesh Patel’s Tote Prints blog.

If you are living with the $1 grocery totes, it’s time to find a couple of fun totes to make grocery shopping a bit more exciting.   Here’s your chance for a quick upgrade!  I have two uniquely designed totes to giveaway for two lucky readers. The design is as seen on the cover of the book, since the cover of the book is actually a tote bag! Please leave a comment saying what you use totes for most often.  For additional comments, please tweet/facebook post about this giveaway and leave a link to it in your comment.  (Continental US residents only).
A winner will be chosen on April 15th, in time to upgrade your tote assortment for Earth Day on April 22nd.

Get inspired by getting your own copy of the The Tote Bag book!

    I use totes when I do shopping OTHER than at the grocery store (Farmer's Market, other retailers, the mall – gasp!). I like them because they're easier and more convenient to carry and much easier to watch (plus they're more stylish. at gmail dot com

    I always bring a tote to the mall or while walking around our village. So much easier to stash random purchases plus keep snacks for the kids. : )

    Great post. I have a couple from Earth Fare that I use but they are so bland and one that I picked up on a mission trip to Costa Rica that a local made for income purposes. Its a bit smaller so I use it more for a large ish purse.
