My go-to shoppers - and pretty too!
I have a few sets of reusable shoppers I've bought over the years and RuMe are the best! I do use stiffer sided ones from my grocer for groceries but for general shopping and packing these are the best I've come across. The squared bottom and sides allow for carrying more bulky items without loosing capacity. The handles are perfect for over the shoulder which nice for those of us who are not 6 ft tall and our bags would otherwise drag and when carrying heavy loads. They are machine washable and after years of use I've never had a seam split as I have with other brands.
I will say I have a set I bought years ago that included the green key pattern along with different patterns that started out much crispier and stiffer than the ones I just purchased (grey and grey and pink). I do like the softer feel of the new bags. I'm trusting they are just as durable.
I use them for everything - stocking up on paper towels, toilet paper, and other household basics, bulky items, clothing shopping, packing for a car trip, beach tote ... you name it.

Huge bag with lots of space and well made
Sturdy, large, can fit 2 gallons of milk plus a bunch of other things and not feel like it's going to break at the handles.

Fantastic Shopping Tote
I bought this bag in Atlanta on a weeking shopping trip. I used it that day at a mall where I purchased lots of Christmas gifts. It was big enough to put several purchases inside, including a pair of shoes, several sweaters, and other items. The tote weighs almost nothing, the straps are long enough to easily fit on your shoulder, and I let the bag rest against my back so I almost didn't notice the weight I was carrying. At the end of the day, the bag was easy to fold up and it went back into my purse the next day for more shopping. When I got home, I ordered three more to give as Christmas gifts to friends who love to shop.

Better than the $1 Grocery bags
These bags beat the ones you buy at the grocery store hands down. They are quite large, weigh nothing, can roll up and they can take the weight. After buying 2 of these large ones, I hunted down the manufacturer online and bought the medium sized ones for my general groceries. Can't wait for the container store to sell the mediums!
