Buy a Fold-up Tote Bag Online

Updated on May 30, 2012

More and more shops are charging for plastic disposable shopping bags these days, so buy a fold-up tote bag to carry home your spur-of-the-moment purchases, without having to shell out extra money to buy a plastic bag.

Coming in a wide range of colours, materials and shapes, the advantage of a fold-up tote bag is that it folds up into a purse-sized accessory that you can keep inside your handbag for just those moments when it is needed.

Available in a wide range of colours, the baggu comes in packs of 3 or 6. This top-selling item is increasingly popular among all age groups for its versatily and usability. Can be worn over the shoulder, in your hand or over your arm. Increasing in popularity among teenagers especially, would make an excellent gift.

Each bag contains enough space to fill the equivalent of 2 to 3 plastic grocery bags. Made from strong rip-stock nylon, they weigh only 2oz each and can each hold up to 25lbs in weight. With a 9" handle length, the bags themselves are 13.5" x 13.5" and fold neatly into a 5" x 5" pouch that can easily fit in handbag or pocket.

They also have a big gusset at the bottom and so can sit flat for more delicate shopping items like eggs or milk.

This bag is also machine washable.

      Great Hub idea, I must have at least a dozen of these bags for my grocery shopping. Yet I'm still not in the habit of using them at the store. I suppose until they actually take away any other form of bag usage, this is how I will stay. They are useful bags for many things.

      Nice Hub. I have heard so much about these fold up tote bags. They are eco-friendly and can easily be folded up for storing in a drawer after use. What is the price range on these tote bags?

      Thanks Dolores...The reason they are all the rage is partly to do with a new 'green' consensus about plastic bag disposal, and part of it is because the youngsters are going wild for them :)

      It's a good thing either way, I reckon :)

      Seems like these tote bags are all the rage. So many stores sell them cheaply but it's nice to have a pretty one like the ones that you have shown.
