I recently decided to get rid of all the smaller totes and bags that I was using to cart my scrapstuff in to crops. I felt like a bag lady and could never remember which bag had what tools and supplies in it. I sat down and really thought about what I bring with me to crops and looked at every bag around. Read reviews, talked to people, stalked women at crops to see how their bag worked for them. I decided to get this XXL and the matching tote. First totally cute and coodinated- I gots to have me some style. Second and more importantly it holds everything I need. I organized my tools into smaller containers and stack them in the bag along with my album and other essentials. I put my page planners and idea books into the tote. I did a three day crop with some friends and actually had a lot of room in it take home more goodies. Best of all I didn't have to make 3 trips to the car just to carry in all my stuff.
This tote is very sturdy and has lots of space. I just wish it had side pockets for even more room. The front zipper does not zipper all the way down so it's kind of difficult to get to the stuff in the bottom pouches. Lots of inside room though.
