I have come to abhor plastic grocery bags. First, they are so small that it takes several bags to carry as much as this Baggu Tote. With so many bags, I can't possibly reuse all of them before I end up with a huge supply of junk bags. The Baggu tote holds as much as 2 or 3 plastic grocery bags. The fact that it folds up so nicely into it's own pouch means I'll always have a bag with me in my purse. This is great because most of my reusable grocery bags don't make their way back into my vehicle and into the store because of my horrible memory! Can't wait to add more Baggu totes to my collection!
