tote bags

This bag doubles as a practical way to tote groceries and a great way to pick up dates. If loving cats is part of your criteria for a future mate, carry this around the aisles at Trader Joe’s and make eye contact with everyone attractive who passes by. Give them a smoldering look that says I’m fun. I have a good taste in bags. Come watch a movie with me and pet my cat.

3. Octopus Tote Bag by catbirdcreatures, $15.


Adorable, creative, and dark enough to hide any stains it might procure from being used to haul food around town. I’m a sucker for anything with an octopus on it. Don’t ask me to explain why, because I can’t. Clearly other people are on the same page, though!
