I love these new Flip & Tumble bags! They are super stylish, and add a cool twist (or I guess I should say flip) on the boring old reusable bag. The Flip & Tumble bags have a stretchy pouch sewn on the inside of the bag that lets you quickly ball it up like a pair of socks. I find this particularly useful. My old reusable bags (they are old school canvas totes I've been using for years) hang in my coat closet until its time to go to the store but I only have them when my shopping trip is planned. Now I keep two in my bag and two in my glove box so I'll never get caught empty bagged.
Unlike most reusable bags these Flip & Tumbles have a long carrying strap so you can carry it over your should or over your head and shoulder like a messenger bag. These chic little packable totes actually come in super handy when I'm out with my little girl who is fascinated with nature and wants to bring home every leaf, rock and stick she sees. The Flip & Tumble measures 12â€x14â€x5â€ but fold up to 3" diameter balls. Also, these bags are rugged made of ripstop nylon and boasting a 25lb capacity they don't flinch in the face of a frozen turkey or an impromptu rock collection. When they do wear out, you can send them back to company who will kindly recycle them.
When all is said and done, I'm still going to keep using my beloved old canvas totes when I know I'm going shopping, but you won't ever catch me without a Flip & Tumble by my side.
