I’ve been looking for a good tote bag. I want one that I can bring with me on any occasion, whether that be hauling my books to class, grabbing groceries, or bringing on a day trip. That being said, I’ve determined what qualities make a tote bag worth purchasing.
The perfect tote bag is versatile.
It can fit many different items and has quite a few pockets or compartments, such as a water bottle sleeve or a pocket for smaller items like your keys. A versatile tote can be taken anywhere, any time.
Another very important factor to consider when shopping for a tote bag is whether it is compact or not. After all, you want a tote bag, not a backpack or luggage. So, finding the bag that’s just the right size can make or break your experience.
Finding a durable tote bag is equally important. My ideal tote bag would be able to carry my laptop and other heavier, essential items.
Finally, the determining factor in whether I decide to purchase a tote bag or not is whether it’s affordable or not. A tote bag can have all of the above qualities, but if the price is unrealistically high, I can’t bring myself to buy it.
I know this is a materialist kind of love, but this is a cry for help. If you know of a tote bag that matches this description, direct message @HCBerkeley on Instagram ASAP! And if not, I hope these tips help you find the tote bag of your dreams.
