    I just thought I would share . . . I wanted reusable bags big enough to tote items to and from the pool/beach, around town, or just something to use as a carry on for people who wind up with lots of souvenirs to fly home with. I found these great totes on ebay. They are huge! They look like canvas but are lined with a plastic material. 25 x 15 x 7inches. The bottom has a block of navy but its only on one side which works out for my presentation purposes. It worked out to be just about $4 a bag! found at NEW BEACH CRUISE TRAVEL BIG ASS TOTE BAGS LOT 4 - eBay (item 190190286296 end time Jan-20-08 10:34:58 PST)

    I contacted the seller for the amount I needed and they responded quickly with a great price. Not sure how many they have to sell but if its a larger, durable, cheap beach bag you are looking for I would try them.

      You got a great price! I like them! The only downfall is now you might feel obligated to buy more stuff to put in them!!!

        Wow those are big. I think you got a great deal on them, good job! I love how the description calls them "Big Ass" bags.

          They are big but if you have a small amount of guests you could easily throw a bigger beach towel in there and not have to spend too much money on them. I have seen them as low as $5 at Target.
          Good deal!

            That was my favorite part too! I often use that descriptive term! Funny to see it in print!

              LOL, yes I think the Big Ass Bag description is what drew me in. I have been looking at them for the last six months and finally just went ahead and got them. I have convinced myself that just because they are big I will not stuff them but keep to a budget and just choose wisely lol. So far I have a $4 bag and a $6 seahorse ornament for as many as 20 people. I will tie on some ribbon, not sure if I am going to invest in personalized ribbon, and I ordered stickers with my logo to make tags. stuffings . . . after sun care, snacks, and staples.com has boxes of sample size advil , pepto, and imodium ad for $20-$30 each.

                We brought a large package of tissue paper with us and stuffed the bottom of our bags to make the appear more full. I felt like we had a bunch of stuff to put in the bag but when we did it looked kinda wimpy.. the tissue paper helped. :)

                    Great idea! I feel like my bags are going to seem blah because they're big and I'm putting small stuff in them.

                      those bags are great! Something else you could do, that might be cheaper, in walmart's travel section there is a first aid kit, that might be cheaper than the things from staples! I showed my FI the bags and he liked them. I will def be thinking about them. let me know how you like them!
