I’m planning on picking up a handful of the whole foods reusable bags.  It’s be great if they weren’t all branded, but I decided that I was more concerned by their price (little ones are $0.79), and we won’t have enough Out of Town bags to make it worth ordering from any of the sites I found.

And yes, I’d throw it in my pile of grocery bags!

I am using canvas totes for my Out of Town bags.  I got them for .99 at Cheaptotes.com.  


Good luck!!

I’m using tote bags.  I ordered from sacksandsuch.com.  but they have not yet arrived, so dunno about quality but I’m sure they are fine.  There are many varieties at different price points there.  I wanted to do something they’d use again instead of gift baskets…I think these fit the bill.

DO NOT ORDER FROM CHEAPTOTES.COM! I had a bad experience with this company! Yes, they may be the cheapest company out there, but there is a reason! First of all, the bags are pretty much the lowest quality I have ever seen. Just a step above a paper bag and they look like they will fall apart any second. I had ordered these to use as our welcome bags for our guests and had a certain design that I wanted printed on them (which wasn’t that elaborate). Wow! What a disappointment! First of all, the price QUICKLY goes up with any additional color that is in your design (I only had two). Secondly, I was sent a proof of what the bags would like with my design printed on them. It was pretty close to my design, but I had some concerns and they assured my they would change them and meet my needs. Had they said this wasn’t possible, I NEVER would’ve placed my order with them. 


Now to the delivery….extreme dissapointment. There were at least 4 things on the bag that were wrong and did not match my design or description. Not to mention, I couldn’t believe how truly “cheap” these bags look and feel…guess that explains their title! I emailed the person that I was working on the design with (the one who assured me they were able to meet my design needs) and it took a good week to get back to me! On the front end of the project (when they were trying to get my money) they were fairly quick with the responses and eager to get the project done. Yet as soon as I needed an issue resolved, it literally took forever to get any sort of response (we went back and forth several times). And I had to send 2-3 emails for every 1 that would get responded to in order for someone to get back to me. To no surprise at this point, the response was a big fat, “NO” on any money back or reprinting my bags. And I am now in a position of having to order these bags again from another company. 

Long story short….DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!!! Unless you want your guests to feel like they are getting a very cheap bag, that they will most likely throw away. They have HORRIBLE customer service and no product garauntee. They may be the cheapest, but they are absolutely not worth a single penny.
