Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shopping Bag Best ever for grocery shopping! Holds so much and is very sturdy. For 'squishable' items I just use net bags and put them on top of these bags for transport into the house. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO STURDY These bags are so sturdy. I've purchased bags like these before and they always rip and then there is no way to fix them. These are perfect. I always use them to bring my groceries from the car to the house (a hefty job) and I know I can trust they'll carry the weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun way to brag Although this is just another good shopping tote, I got so many inquiries about it that I couldn't wait to use it again. It has outlasted all my others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bag! It's larger and sturdier than the usual grocery store reusable bags. Plus the handle is long enough that I can sling it over my shoulder if I need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic bag i have been transitioning myself to be more eco-friendly and having this container store bag makes it so much easier! its big enough to just throw things in there and there are two sets of handles so its easier if you want to carry it on your shoulder or arm. it is also very sturdy. i've thrown many things in there (pop bottles, textbooks) and it hasn't broken yet. everyone knows this bag belongs to me because of the big lettering. and its getting my roommates to be more environmentally savvy. i love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite I bet I have bought 25 of these bags. They are good for so many uses. I love them for going on car trips, vacation or to the family reunion. Great for organizing linens, food, cooking utensils, etc., Strong enough to hold heavy items like charcoal, and the four straps mean you can either use the two shoulder straps or the two hand straps.The bags are super easy to store in the car trunk. Of course on the way home they hold dirty clothes, sea shells, wet bathing suits, toys, you name it. Easily washed folded and stored flat for the next adventure. Extremely useful item, I always have a couple in the trunk of my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best reusable bag- buy 6 of these Now that San Jose has outlawed plastic bags, all the retailers are offering their own reusable bags for $1-$2, and I am convinced this is the best one with its fabric handles. Even the free bags Container Store gives out are as good as the reusables some stores are selling. If you need bags, this is the place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool! I received this from The Container Store as a free gift on my birthday! I have had it for years now and I still use it. Very durable and a great size, not too big but not small either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size reusable Love the large size of this really durable shopping bag. Big enough for my larger bulk purchases . I have many smaller size bags but this will make carrying in my bulky things so much easier. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bag! This bag is amazing! I use it for many things including, library books (I'm a teacher and I've had it hold at least 50 library books), items when we go shopping at The Container Store and other stores, groceries, etc. I love the double set of handles. I've never owned a more durable bag. It is thick, the handles are well attached, and I've not yet had it tear even with heavy loads. You can't beat the price, either!

Community Q&A

Is this machine washable?

Asked by: taka
I would say "No" to machine washing and recommend wiping down the bag with a wet cloth and soap (or some kind of cleaning product) when needed/desired.
