I use tote bags a lot when we travel. For those with young children, they also make a good toy bag for outings. And they make a good church bag for toddlers to hold special quiet toys that can only be played with at church.
I’ve never had any custom tote bags. I do have a colorful one from Hawaii that has been one of my favorites along with a solid black one that has pictures of my grandbabies. They come in very handy!
