Back to School Extravaganza: BagsEtc Review and Giveaway CLOSED

BagsEtc is operated by Cool Tote, a small family owned manufacturer of insulated tote bags for over 25 years. They have developed their store to bring you a wide selection of high quality, fashionable bags for both children and adults. All lunch bags sold by them are well insulated and lead free.

They also specialize in unique designs, high quality products, and offer a wide range of fabric choices in both their Cool Tote and Nicole West Product lines.

A few months ago, I was introduced to the BagsEtc and instantly fell in love with their vast array of stylish lunchbags.

Needless to say, I was pretty ecstatic when BagsEtc offered to let me review their best seller, the Cool Tote Grande Lunch Sack 

The Cool Tote Grande Lunch Sack is perfect for large lunches of frozen pre-packaged meals. According to the BagsEtc website, it also popular among mothers because it holds quite a few baby bottles.
This bag consists of lead free nylon lining that offers superior insulation and a freezer pack which will keep your lunch cool and fresh until meal time.

It also has an adjustable shoulder strap, an inside pocket and measures 11x7x4".

Even though they offer tons of lunch sack prints that are likely to appeal to children and adults alike, I chose to review the Marble Onyx print, a more subdued pattern which anyone in my family could use.


I've only used this bag once in order to keep yogurt cold for a few hours while I was shopping and I can tell you that it definitely worked wonderfully! Whenever I go back to school, I will definitely be using it on a regular basis.

Here are some other prints they offer:


Aren't they so cute? I could see children really loving these lunch sacks!

At just $21.97, a bag like this easily pays for itself since you won't need to buy "brown bags" ever again and you will help the environment!

BagsEtc has generously offered to give away a Lunch Sack (grande) to a Young, Free and Frugal reader!

  62. My granddaughter in high school (with some unique eating habits) carries her lunch every day. I know she'd love either the Lunch Sack Grande in Music or Cat patterns, but I think she'd be much happier carrying the Marble Onyx, so that's the one I'd choose.
