The large utility tote is arguably the most useful product from Thirty-one. Yes I may have around 10 in use. Here are my top 5 uses for the large utility tote.
1 For groceries
The large utility tote is the bomb for going to the grocery store because seriously who wants to carry more than one bag to the house. If you have a big shopping trip you could carry two large utility totes. Each tote can hold up to 50 lbs of groceries. Also good because you don’t have to buy plastic bags. For my personal grocery shopping I like carrying my groceries up in one trip because I have a walkout basement and that means I have a lot of stairs!
2 For camping
Pack full of groceries or extra clothes to go to the cabin or for camping. The best part is they fold flat so you can slide under the bed when there isn’t much space. Then use for a beach bag or a bag for the boat while you are at the lake! Then pack your dirty clothes in the tote to bring home. Wow that is multifunction, I’m almost tired writing about it!
3 For linen closets
This is a big one for me. So much that I wrote a whole post about it here. So I am not good at folding towels or sheets and when I grab something everything falls on my head. This way you can have a tote for everything and even if you plan ahead you can get them personalized so you know where to look for your towels and sheets.
4 For the car
It gets super cold where I live. Like so cold I wish there were underground tunnels everywhere so I didn’t have to actually have the air touch my face. So in the winter it is a good idea to have a tote full of emergency supplies in case you go in the ditch or your car breaks down including extra blankets, booster cables, flares, and candle. The large utility tote is also useful for carrying extra items for your little ones such as books, extra clothes, toys and snacks. If you have two kids and bucket seats you could put between the kids so they can get their stuff easier.
5 For direct sales to carry items to parties
Its sort of funny when I go to a local tradeshow. Almost everyone has a large utility tote to carry their samples and displays in. Like I said above they hold up to 50 lbs and they make it easier to cart your stuff around. I even have multiple totes full of totes in my house!
There are many other uses for large utility totes but above I listed 5 of my favorites. Which are your favorites?
