Mixed Bag Designs: What’s In Your Bag?

Mixed Bag Designs Reusable Bags for Green FundraisersWhat’s in your bag? At Mixed Bag Designs, we want to offer bags that are versatile, durable and fashionable. We want totes and storage that are cute AND useful, letting us tuck away all of our odds & ends into fun, stylish boxes and bags. Here at Mixed Bag Designs headquarters, we went around and asked our staff what they carry in their bags and what they use our bags for. There’s a few surprises and some funny discoveries (cats apparently love our bags)!

Co-founder Jan Mercer likes to hide all of her inventory files and paperwork in the stylish damask file boxes in her office to keep her desk looking clean and her shelves looking pretty. Amy Lombard in the marketing department uses the Navy Flower large zip tote to cary her Kindle (in the Navy Geo Kindle Case) and bike helmet that comes in handy on her daily commute. Here’s a list of 100 items found in our Mixed Bags both around the office and at home! What’s in yours?
