    1. A set of five foldable bag designed to hold up to 50 lbs, which is especially great for when you go to the grocery store hungry and end up buy wayyyy more than what was on your original list.

    Promising review: "We've been using these bags for the better part of a year now, so I'm comfortable with saying they're tough and durable! They hold a LOT of weight... well, at least as much as I can comfortably strain under! There have been no rips, fraying, or even little sags in the seams that I've noticed. The colors are fun and vibrant, the bags fold up so quickly and are easy to store (I just toss them all inside one of my old bags), and I'm not adding to the mountain of plastic grocery bags I already own at my house. What's not to love?? (Honestly, that's why we switched. We have a HUGE bag o' bags [plastic grocery bags], and even after all this time, and using those bags for cleaning out the cat box, I still haven't worked my way through it!)" —desertmommy3

    Price: $13.99

    2. A collapsible extra large one you'll find to be so practical, you'll use it many different ways.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I have bought over 10. I use them for everything—groceries, Costco, storing items in my trunk, storing beach towels (it makes an awesome beach bag). I even put my recycling in them. I do agree that occasionally it would nice if the sides were rigid. But then it would be a pain to store them. I love, love, love these bags!" —C. Smith

    Price: $20.35 (available in 16 colors and patterns)

    3. A Baggu nylon bag you should always keep with you. You really never know when you're going to be out and walk by a Trader Joe's with no line that's just begging for you to come in and purchase at least three bags of the cauliflower gnocchi...


    Promising review: "This is the best reusable bag ever! Love, love, love this bag. It's lightweight and easy to clean and cute and not too big. The material is soft and not plasticity. The nice long handles allow me to put it on my shoulder while walking. Weird thing, and maybe it’s the shape, it holds a huge amount. More than you than when you initially look at it. Deceptively small looking on the outside and holds so much that I have to tell them not to fill it to the top so I can carry it. I’m asked about my bag all the time. And a checker commented on how it's easy to fill it with groceries. I also take it when I travel. We use it to carry our purchases, and it’s easy to carry and bring. I highly recommend it!" —S T

    Price: $12+ (available in 38 colors, patterns, and sets).

    4. Or a canvas Baggu tote you won't mind keeping with you at all times because it looks so nice.


    Promising review: "This has become my go-to day bag. The canvas is sturdy and easily carries two large library books without any sign of stress. I love that it is machine-washable. The bag snaps securely closed and is easy to pack on long trips. I have already gifted one to a friend." —Kangourou

    Get it from Amazon for $32+ (available in six colors and patterns).

    5. An extra-large one with a reinforced bottom so you don't have to worry about having your groceries spill out *of* the bottom (like they do when you fill a paper bag too full).

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with these bags. They are durable, spacious, waterproof, and well insulated to keep cold or warm food. They hold a lot for groceries. Plus, going to the beach is no problem at all with the zipper. I highly recommend this bag. It will help you get away from using disposable grocery bags." —Dennis Mobley

    Price: $15.99+ (available in two sizes)

    6. A collapsible utility bag designed to look so chic, people won't even realize that you're carrying a week's worth of food inside.

    Promising review: "Do you want to get compliments on your grocery tote? Do you want to feel like you're out on a fashionable picnic when you buy your food for the week? I hate plastic bags, but I think I'd love this tote even if I wasn't eco-conscious. This tote is above and beyond sturdy, with long, leather-like straps, and thick material. It's got a huge capacity, both for space and weight. It's held up beautifully for at least six months of daily use now." —Mel

    Price: $32.99+ (available in eight colors and two styles)

    7. A set of five grocery bags made to be machine-washable *and* rip-proof because you know they'll take a beating with the number of groceries you stuff in them.

    Promising review: "I’m very impressed with these bags. I took two of them into Target today for groceries, and ended up only needing to use one. These bags can hold a lot of items. They are strong, easy to clean and fold up into the attached pouches within seconds. I store mine in my center console of my car. I have been promoting these to my friends and family, and they are already making purchases. These are worth every penny." —Cuesta Verde

    Price: $13.99 (available in six color combinations)

    8. A canvas tote that has a pocket on the outside to slip you wallet and phone into so you only have to bring one bag with you when you go to the store.

    Promising review: "Love, love, LOVE this bag. I purchased two to begin with, and I will definitely be getting more in the future. They are very roomy, and I can fit a lot of groceries in when I go shopping. One alone can easily withstand the weight of two or three gallons of milk, which just makes the whole shopping process and bringing it home to my apartment so much easier. I can also use this bag for so many other things—traveling, bringing towels/toys/clothes along to the beach or to go swimming. They will last a long time and provide a lot of uses and are worth the cost." —Lisa Borth

    Price: $11.98 (available in 10 colors)

    9. A pack of three that are made from recycled plastic, so you can feel *extra* good about using them.


    Promising review: "I love these shopping bags and use them all the time. I love that they fold flat when they are not in use so they don't take up much space in the trunk when not in use. I also love that they are very sturdy and can hold a lot of groceries. They are easy to carry. The thing that really makes these bags stand out to me is that it is so much easier to load groceries into these bags because they have rigid sides and stand upright by themselves after you unfold them. This is a major advantage compared to floppy bags that roll up small but are difficult to fill. Courtesy clerks at the store agree that these are fabulous. I liked them so much I bought a set for my parents and am thinking of buying another set for myself, as I think 4 bags are perfect for a family of 4." —Lori B.

    Price: $29.99 (available in nine colors and varieties)

    10. A jumbo thermal one to keep food cold or hot—it's also big enough to fit in an entire pizza to keep warm, so I know how I'm going to be using this....

    Promising review: "This is an amazing tote. Where we live you have to have something to keep the cold groceries cold on the way home or you have to be ready to eat all the frozen items immediately. I was amazed at how much the tote could actually hold and still zip the zipper. I definitely will buy another one." —Ginger Lasseter

    Price: $24.99

    11. A pack of six mesh string bags – it may seem small, but they expand to hold up to 40 pounds.


    Promising review: "These work great! I love these bags when shopping for produce. They have a great deal of integrity; they can hold a lot of weight and stretch quite a bit. They were packaged very conservatively and arrived in an airtight Ziploc bag (which I will also reuse!). If it comes to the point where I need more than four, I will definitely buy this product again! I'm very happy." —Zoe Jans

    Price: $13.99

    12. A pack of six totes made with a laminated woven material you can easily clean if something spills in it.

    rectangle bag with red straps and pictures of food on it that says "Bon Appetite"

    Promising review: "These are great shopping bags, flat bottom, but fold up, made of recycled plastic, they wash out easily and I just carried in about 15 pounds in one with no problems. They were exactly as pictured with same design. They are the right size for carrying groceries, you can get a lot in them, but they aren't so big you are tempted to overload them. I've used ones made out of the same material and they lasted a long time." —Deborah C. Hayes

    Price: $13.99 (available in 15 styles)

    13. A pack of six made out of polyester so if it rains as you're carrying things in the house, you might get wet, but at least everything inside these won't.

    two nylon bag – one yellow with illustrations of a dog in black and white and the other with illustrations of cats in blues, oranges, and reds

    Promising review: "I love these bags! They are large and hold so much! And the handles are long enough for me to carry them on my shoulder. They are washable, large with a pocket, and come in fun designs. I think it's a good price for the number of good quality bags. Some of these were filled to the brim, even carrying 10 cans, and had no rips or tears after. They're very sturdy. I am very happy with this purchase. I wish I bought them sooner." —Michelle B.

    Price: $14.99

    14. A set of 10 fruit pouch bags you'll be ~berry~ excited use because they're super cute and convenient to keep in your home, car, and anywhere else you might need one.

    Promising review: "These are SO cute and fun! I have been trying to cut down on my single-use plastics and these have come in very handy. I'm good about bringing my reusable bags when I go grocery shopping, but I often forget them when I run out for just one or two things. I put a couple of these in my car and one in my purse and I'm never without a reusable bag! Everyone compliments me when I pull it out and they think it's so cute and clever! I love using them." —Natalie

    Price: $13.88 (available in two styles)

    15. A set of four bags designed to fit in your grocery cart – all you have to do it grab the handles when you're done shopping, and you're good to go.

    Promising review: "This made grocery shopping so much easier! I absolutely loved the way I was able to organize everything, and that it took one trip to bring everything in. I wish there was an adjustable pole to make the bags wider, since the store I shop at has wide carts. Everything else is great! I plan to purchase more produce bags." —Buckwheat91

    Price: $30.99+ (available in two color combinations)

    16. A set of three biodegradable extra large cotton grocery bags that are basic yet will ~get the job done~.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these bags! They are big and roomy and have nice long straps that seem to be very sturdy. I bought two sets of three packs, because I have three tweens and they eat all the time, so my grocery lists are long. I was worried that I would forget to take them to the store with me, but as soon as I unload groceries, I gather all the bags back up and put them in the middle of my truck so they're always handy." —KLB

    Price: $17.99

    17. A set of three collapsible bags made with side handles and reinforced bottoms to make it super easy to move from shopping cart to car and into your home.

    Promising review: "Ok, so when I first took them out of the box and fully opened them, I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed that they weren't as big as I was hoping for. However, after actually using them, I discovered that they can carry SOO MUCH! I was able to put a week's worth of groceries for a family of 5 in both bags! Plus, I love how long the straps are. It happened to be raining that day and the long straps made it so much easier to slip on my shoulders to avoid them getting wet! I just love them so much plus I got compliments in nearly each section I was in at the grocery store!" —KH

    Price: $24.97 (available in 16 color and pattern combinations)
