Yeah, Target has some really cute little reuseable bags in their dollar bin right now. We bought reusable grocery bags in a fun print, but they’re a little large.

Eek, yeah. Um, one of the bees bought from Cheap Totes.  Mrs. Lemon used Jiffy and Mrs. Pinot Noir used Cheap totes. Here’s her site: Out of Town BAGS Somebody else did too…..i think they’re pretty much your basics. The jiffy ones look better IMO.

I bought canvas bags at JoAnn’s on sale and then stenciled our monogram on them. They’re lunch bag-ish sized so it won’t take too much to make them feel very full and the best part is our guests can reuse them after the wedding (I hope!). I think they were about $1.50 each.

59 cents sounds great and even if they’re not the greatest quality, you really only need them for one day and your guests will appreciate the gesture.

I ordered from cheaptotes.  I think its the "gift tote" that is .59?  Let us know how they are.  I ordered a few of the canvas "tote bag" that are .99 to check them out, they seem great.  The gift totes were that much cheaper but I want something they can use again, just seems like the slightly larger sized ones would be more useful for groceries etc, although you could definitely find uses for either.  I ordered some of the plain canvas and a couple of different colors to check them out, but for the price difference (.50 more for the colors) I am just going to go with the canvas.  Not planning to decorate them, as I thought that might make people less likely to reuse them (and I don’t need another DIY!!).

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.
