Zazzle's Grocery Tote Bags Make The Perfect Library Bags

Today I'm going to review how great Zazzle's grocery tote bags are as adult library bags.   I recently came back from a visit with my mom that prompted me to write this review as she is still using a bag I designed for her (that can be found in my Hooting Owls Zazzle Store) back in 2013.

My mum has always loved owls so I decided to create a tote bag for her with an owl design on it for Christmas 2013.   When I gave it to her she decided it would be her library bag.   Now my mum is an avid user of the library, not only that when I stay with her, my brother stays with her or her grandchildren stay with her we all use the library ... and her library bag.

Now this bag has had it's strength severely tested over the years as it has been extremely overloaded with books especially when a few of us have been staying at the same time!   It is still going strong and there's no sign of any distress whatsoever.

It has been washed on countless occasions over the last five and a half years and I do believe that the design may be a little faded (although it looked more faded in real life than the photos when it was brand new), but I can't be sure.

There's only been one occasion when this bag caused any distress and that was when my mother thought she'd lost it.   Luckily it's a distinctive design and one of the local ladies at the supermarket recognized it when mum left it in the trolley and gave it to her the next time she saw her!   Definitely a great reason to get a customized tote bag!

I cannot recommend these tote bags enough, in fact I've already reviewed them here on Review This, but having recently used this bag again and realizing how long it has been regularly used I felt it needed to be reviewed again.

  1. I use grocery store cloth tote bags for library bags too. Also use them to 'tote around' my current in-progress crochet projects. Having customized bags sounds like an excellent idea as they would be easily recognized as 'yours'. Love that idea, Louanne. I'll go check out your Zazzle store.

  2. I'm so glad we are finally getting on board and reusing, re-purposing and recycling where ever possible. Having said that, I love reusable bags and have many stored both in the closet or in the car. I love the owls on your bag and using it for books? Well that just makes a whole lot of sense! Well done Louanne, now I have to go shopping at Zazzle.....

  3. I have several of the Zazzle tote bags and have overloaded them many time myself. However, I have never washed one. Good to know they can endure multiple washes and still retain their strength. Btw, I love the owl design too!
