I've had my tote for quite a while and I LOVE IT. Granted, I don't use it every day, but when I need to travel with pens, scissors, ink pads, stamps, etc, this is THE BEST tool.
And even if you don't travel often with your supplies, it's a great "home" for all of those tools you wish you knew what to do with. In addition to all the great outside pockets, you can stash large supplies in the center and split up your smaller supplies in the nooks and hidden pockets.
It's also very sturdy. The canvas will not tear and the handles are made to carry as much as you can stuff inside! Highly recommended for those of you who need or organize and those of you who are already organized!
i've had this tote a while now and i'm always amazed at the "one more thing" i can fit in that thing! i keep several different pairs of scissors, paint/foam brushes, pens, pencils, markers, rulers, adhesives, random embelishments, and who knows what else in there. this makes this tote the perfect organization tool for in or out-of-the-home scrapbooking. this tote is way improved over the 1st version in that the bottom drawer holds up way better and the lazy susan is pretty neat. i highly recommend this tote for any and every scrapbooker!
This is the second bag I have purchased. This one is for a quilting friend. I love mine and take it everywhere. Although it is designed for scrapbooking, I use mine for all my small quilting do-dads. I was beginning to despair there was nothing on the market that would fit my needs when I stumbled on to the Tote at Costco. Ton of pockets for scissors, thimbles, needles, thread, templates, marking pens, pincushions, etc, and a turn table to boot. A quilter's dream bag. Thanks for a great design.
I have all my necessary tools in one place...finally. I can grab this tote and whatever pages I am working on and be ready to go in a flash. It is amazing how much you can fit in the tote, and still have room for a bottled water. Plenty of pockets and elastic holds to keep everything in place. I find this one of my most useful tools. It keeps me organized, and that's not easy to do.
Purchasing a Lazy Susan for my tote was on my 'To Do' list when I accidentally stumbled upon this little treasure. It's just as roomy as the original but has the added benefit of a separate magnetic bottom that you just sit on your desk & plop the tote on top of it. It spins smoothly & easily & I could not be happier. This is a must have for all crafters!
