Editors’ Pick: Juvale Reusable Cotton Grocery Shopping Tote Bags

The Facts:

  • Pack of three totes
  • 14" x 9" x 1"
  • Machine washable

In three simple but lovely styles, these cotton tote bags are the cutest way to schlep your stuff from place to place. They’re compact enough to store just about anywhere, but big enough to hold an impressive amount of things. According to one editor, “I love these because they don’t look like they’re just for the grocery store. I use them for everything from my weekly Trader Joe’s run to toting books to and from the library.”

amazon reusable totes splurge worthy

Splurge-worthy: Baggu Ripstop Nylon Grocery Tote

The Facts:

  • One tote bag
  • Holds up to 30 pounds
  • Machine washable 

Baggu is kind of like the O.G. of reusable totes, and the brand has stuck around for good reason: Baggus are insanely high-quality and way more stylish than your garden-variety resuable tote. (Metallic purple? Yes, please.) Helpfully, these also come with a handy little pouch you can store the tote in when you’re not using it.

Customer Favorite: Bagstar Reusable Grocery Tote Bags

The Facts:

  • Pack of five bags: two large and two medium
  • Can be folded up and stored in matching pouches
  • Extra-thick material is ideal for heavier items

Machine washable and in five sweet prints, these totes can hold a surprising amount of stuff (the larger size can hold up to 44 pounds). Says one customer, “As shopping bags, they are excellent. You can bring them and not have to worry about keeping up with them because they stand out nicely. They are easy to clean. And they hold lots—but best of all, by far, is how small they fold up.”

amazon reusable tote runner up

Runner-up: Exobest Foldable Shopping Totes

The Facts:

  • Pack of five
  • 16" x 15" x 6"
  • Bags fold easily and quickly into mini pouches

Like the previous model, this one can carry major weight—50 pounds per bag, to be precise. With extra-reinforced wide handles, they’re ideal for big-time grocery hauls, after which you can fold them up into little pouches. How certain is the brand that these won’t break? Each pack of bags comes with a one-year, no-rip warranty.
