What To Look For When Buying A Shoulder Tote Bag
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A shoulder tote bag is ideally suited for carrying everything you need on a daily basis. These large bags have short straps so that you can carry them by hand or on your shoulder. They come in a variety of colors and patterns to complement your personal style. In addition, you can find tote bags to fit any budget.

When buying a tote bag, the first thing you need to consider is what you will use the bag for. Tote bags are multipurpose; you can use them as a simple daily purse, as a shopping bag, a small luggage bag, or for a variety of other things. If you will simply be using your tote day-to-day while going to work, running errands, etc., you can pick one of the smaller styles. A bag that is too big can make it harder to access the things you need. Plus, since you have extra space you might be tempted to keep more things in it and then the bag will be uncomfortably heavy to carry with you so much. On the other hand, if you want a bag that can fit whatever you might need to carry, groceries, clothes and toiletries for a weekend trip, a picnic lunch, a medium-to-large shoulder tote bag is the right choice.

Once you know how big your tote should be, the next thing to decide is what sort of closure you prefer. Having a bag that does not close at all can be okay in some situations, such as for a shopping bag, but for most cases it is essential that the bag can close so your belongings will be secure. You can choose a full zipper closure or opt for a bag that closes with one or more snap buttons. Next, think about any additional features you would like your bag to have, such as an inside pocket that is open or zips closed. This can be used to hold things like your keys or phone.

The final choice to make when looking for a shoulder tote bag is what many consider the most important, the style of the bag. Totes come in solid colors and countless patterns, as well as many different materials. There are so many great options such as the travel tote, canvas tote, diaper tote and a wide variety of leather totes in various designs and colors. The choices are endless you might end up purchasing more than one.
