This $27 Crochet Tote Bag Is the Best Thing I've Ever Bought at Walmart
Hi. Avid Walmart shopper here to tell you it's about time to start shopping the retailer's fashion and accessories section, if you aren't already. Case in point: my new obsession is the No Boundaries Women's Festival Crochet Tote Bag Tan Multi Stripe ($27), which, in all honesty, I wasn't expecting to be as high quality as it is. Ahead, I break down everything you need to know about this bag in deciding whether or not you want to add it to your virtual shopping cart.
What I Like About This Tote Bag
When I unboxed this tote back, I audibly gasped over the intricate crochet detailing, which — if I'm being honest — looks even better IRL. It's reminiscent of a special item you'd buy from a super-talented artisan. It's made out of 100 percent cotton crochet, which makes it really soft to the touch — and the inside pocket is so spacious. For context: I brought it with me for a day of surfing and managed to fit a wetsuit, towel, water bottle and sunscreen inside without anything overflowing from the top.
What's better, it even has a zipped pocket to store easily displaceable items like your keys and phone, which I appreciated even more when I shoved my damp wetsuit back into it later that day.
What Occasion Is This Tote Bag Good For?
This tote bag will certainly work for any summer activity, but I think it's the perfect beach bag and also great for pool days, plus vacays. As mentioned, I brought it to the beach for a day of surfing, but I can also foresee myself using it to pick up some groceries or to transport wine and cheese to the park for a picnic.
What's Worth Noting About This Tote Bag
I studied this tote bag's reviews and noticed that those who gave lower ratings were surprised by how big it was. But as someone who always seems to be carrying a ton of stuff with me, I was a fan — and highly recommend it to those who appreciate a sizable carryall.
If you're not as obsessed with this multistripe print as I am but still like the silhouette, it comes in a floral pattern, too, in black and tan. While the stripe option is more classic, that alternate option evokes more of a boho aesthetic.
Would I Recommend This Tote Bag?
Without a doubt! I can't speak any more highly of this gorgeous bag, and shoppers agree. "Have gotten many compliments," writes one reviewer. "People are very surprised to find out where I bought it." I'm still in shock, too, TBH.
