Who doesn't need another tote bag? I sure do! I love them! Especially because of my multiple craft projects that are going on all the time. A tote bag, especially a nice sturdy one, is an awesome way to store them! When I had the opportunity to review a tote bag from Funtote there was no way I was going to turn it down. Unfortunately, my motherly instinct kicked in and I thought that Ashley might love to pick one out instead. I thought it would be perfect for her to use at college.
She jumped at the chance, of course, and chose the Maple Tree School Tote Bookbag in charcoal and white. As luck would have it, the bag happened to arrive right before she came home for her first visit during fall break. As soon as we took it out of the package I realized I had made a mistake. I never should have let her pick one out! I should've been selfish and just kept it for myself, lol! She loves it though and has been getting lots of use out of it at school.
The bag is awesome! It's a nice size, very sturdy and the colors are so pretty. My only complaint would be that I'd like the straps to be slightly longer but that is probably because my arms are bigger. One feature I love is that there is a side zipper pocket on the outside, which would be a perfect place for your keys or cell phone, as well as three pockets inside. Very convenient!
The best news of all, and don't be silly like me and give this opportunity away, is that one of Life Full of Laughter's awesome readers is going to have the chance to choose a tote bag from the Side Zipper Collection for themselves! Awesome, right?!?
