Giveaway & Review: Tota Grocery Storage & Trunk Organizer! (Closed)

I do a lot of shopping - grocery and everything else! And you know what drives me crazy? All the trips to and from the car to bring everything into the house! (Or worse, when I try to carry all my bags at once and start balancing bags on my fingers!) Yeah it's definitely no secret that having to make multiple trips to and from the car is no fun. So why not make it easy on yourself and get my new favorite accessory: the Tota Grocery Storage & Trunk Organizer! I love it! The two storage bins fit perfectly in the back of my hatchback and make carrying in groceries or shopping bags a breeze. Now really, would you rather carry all of this mess : Or would you rather carry one canvas tote into the house!? The Tota is a unique organization system designed to safely retain your newly purchased groceries while driving as you transport them home. The product itself is big enough to hold two paper grocery bags upright, it measures at 17"x13"x11'' high. It has a wide base that helps keep it stabilized so it will keep your bags upright and it won't tip over in the back of your car.
You know what the Tota is also great for? Getting groceries into your car when you leave the grocery store. Me, I love to just grab all my bags and leave the cart in the store or at the outside cart carousel. But juggling bags isn't any fun! Why not bring the Tota with you into the store with your reusable bags! or be even more "green" and use it instead of bags?! When you're done shopping you can park your cart and tote your purchases (in your Tota) out to the car with you!

And what about all of the little things that you need to carry into the house with you? Mail, keys, cell phone, receipts? Each Tota has mesh pockets on the outside so you can keep all of those little things safely tucked away while keeping your hands otherwise free.

The Tota retails for $10.99 each or $20.99 for a set of two. My mom has a hatchback too and she was a little jealous over my Tota Storage System! At $20.99, I'm planning on buying her a set for her upcoming birthday - and I can even get her favorite color - blue! The Tota Storage System is a must have for busy women (and men) who do any kind of shopping!

I would love these! I usually end up tying all my plastic grocery bags shut so they don't spill their contents all over the back of my Jeep. This would be so much better!

I like the Taupe/Maroon color. Thanks!

I like the Taupe-Maroon combo. It's great that this folds flat when not in use, so you can easily move it aside when you have something large to transport!

I love the Taupe - Maroon color. It would match my car! My car needs this because it seems like my groceries always are falling over and dumping out. I also like the "green" side of this...take it right in the grocery store and use it instead of bags! Thanks for entering me!
