Why you want this: As reusable bags have become a standard household item, Baggu has made a name for itself in the market with its sturdy styles and whimsical designs. Beyond the plastic you save by using a tote, the standard Baggu is constructed with a ripstop nylon that is 40 percent recycled material. The price may seem like a bit of a splurge given that you can now pick up extremely cheap reusable bags at almost every grocery and big box store. However, the more you use your tote, the more you realize the importance of the details—namely having a strong, large-capacity bag that is easy to clean.

What the experts say: The Spruce named the Baggu Standard Bag the best overall reusable grocery bag, calling it “one of the toughest and longest-lasting reusable grocery bags.” They highlight the bag’s 50-pound capacity, which has made users confident that they can carry it for years.

What the people say: Great for schlepping. “I’ve given plenty away as gifts and love that they can hold tons of stuff! This size is great for groceries, errands, picnic trips to the park, and whatever else. It also isn’t too uncomfortable even when stuffed to the brim!”

Easy to store. “The small square storage bag lets you put this tote in just about anything. I’ve got a couple in my glove compartment in my car, my purse, and some in my home … It’s nice to not have to use plastic! I will be back to buy more!”

The Baggu Standard Tote is now $9, or 25 percent off the regular price.
