Repurpose Your Wine Tote – Tip #1

toteYou don’t have to be a wine drinker to appreciate those cute tote bags. Everyone from Trader Joe’s to Fred Meyer offers bottle carrier bags in a variety of materials and patterns. I find the pocketed totes perfect for storing/transporting any number of things. First tip: shoes. These make for great portable shoe bags. Holds three pairs with each shoe getting its own pocket. For optimum protection, place clean shoe heel in first with sole facing out. Works best with low heels/flats/sandals. Tote fits easily into a closet for storage or in the back seat of your car for travel. Eco note: Whether they are poly or jute, reusable bags only help the environment if they are reUSED a lot. Be sure you get the most mileage from yours by thinking creatively and acting resourcefully. Thank you for helping to make the earth a clearer place.

    I’ve been searching for a cotton wine tote to hold my mason jars when shopping. Still on the look out! Great tip 🙂

      Thanks, Danielle! I have yet to see a cotton tote with dividers but one idea might be to use the cardboard dividers from a liquor box and insert into a heavy duty cotton/canvas tote. Worth a try. Thanks for your efforts in keeping the planet green … love the energy on your blog! Jane
