Friday Freebie: Tote Bag

The Russians have a term — avoska — for a small tote bag carried “just in case.” Theirs were used for the random times where lines spontaneously formed for things like bananas. When lines appeared, people would join even if they weren’t certain what was on offer (on the grounds that, if people were lining up, something good must be for sale)!

In the same “Be Prepared” spirit, such a reusable tote bag is one of the smartest things a no-budget traveler can stash in the outer pockets of their luggage or in their handbag.

The nice folks at Wellcare want you to have this tote for free. It appears to have nice long straps for shoulder carrying. If you don’t like the design, I recommend you simply turn it inside out!

They really do come in handy in ecologic countries (always take one to Italy!)
+they’re great as a beach bag
Just wish one of your freebies was more global:( cause none of them sends here

Unfortunately 99% of the freebies you find online are for the US and occasionally Canada. Don’t think I’ve ever seen one for the UK or the rest of Europe.

There are sometimes freebies for the UK, but most of the rest of Europe is a freebie-free zone :( Skoda, nie?

I always carry a spare tote bag when we travel – it is great for carrying snacks and keeping kids well fed. I also love it when I have the change to hit a farmer’s market, it makes me feel local when far away from home!
