For $12, today's side deal gets you three all-purpose, reusable bags from Joey Totes (a $24 value, shipping included). Joey Totes are an eco-conscious alternative to plastic bags used at the grocery store and can also be conveniently used at the beach, as a gym bag, at the mall, and more.
The three-pack easily fits into one small pouch that's easy to carry and store. The pack contains one Big Joey (18"x25"x5"), which fits up to four shoeboxes and can go over your shoulder; and two Regular Joeys (14"x21"x4"), which hold two shoeboxes each and are convenient to carry. The bags come with a lifetime guarantee, are made from a single piece of fabric for added strength, can each carry 40 pounds, and are machine washable. Joey Totes' eco-friendly design can save thousands of plastic bags a year and come in handy with DC's recent paper and plastic bag tax.
- The company also says Big Joey can hold 40 pounds. That is conservative because as part of my test, I put three bowling balls in the large bag. Total weight: 46 pounds. – Ross Werland, Chicago Tribune
- Whether you’re taking an overseas trip and want to carry your surplus souvenirs, or taking the family to the beach and want to keep the sandy stuff separate, Joey Totes are just what you need. – Lylah M. Alphonse, Boston Globe
- When I took the bags for a spin on a trip this past weekend, I was quite impressed with them. – Scott Carmichael, Gadling
