What to Put In a Tote Bag

Tote bags are a must-have addition to your wardrobe. Stylish, practical, reusable, versatile and cost-efficientthere isn't much that a tote can't do. This includes being able to hold all of your essentials, and much much more. A durable canvas tote can even withstand much heavier items, like your laptop and books.

One of the benefits of a tote is that it can be used for almost all occasions. Whether you're at the shops, work, school, gym, beach, or travelling, a good tote will have your back through it all. This means the options of what you can put in your tote are near enough endless. 

Some of the items you can put in your tote bag include:

  • Phone
  • Laptop
  • Chargers
  • Books
  • Headphones
  • Water Bottle
  • Groceries
  • Lunch
  • Snacks
  • Hand Sanitizer 
  • Tissues
  • Menstrual Products
  • Gym Gear
And the list goes on. With the exception of the obvious, your tote can hold almost anything you need it to. We know our totes can hold at least six bottles of wine, 35kg of weights, and ten large bricks without breaking  you can even carry more tote bags, if that's what you're into.

It doesn't even end there. You can decorate and personalise your tote by putting more things on the outside, too. Use a painting kit, tie-dye or iron-on patches to make your tote truly unique
