My Convertible Tote Bag Backpack Shopping Bag

I just wrote about some backpacks with Mori Girl style and one of them reminded me of this convertible tote bag backpack thing I got on Amazon for less than $10. So I thought I should write about it briefly here. Alas, I don't have a photo of the exact one I bought because my smartphone broke and for complicated reasons I haven't gotten a replacement yet. So here's the pic from Amazon of it.

Convertible Tote Bag Backpack

I really wish they had it in a cream color (although any dirt would be more noticeable on that) or brown. I really would have loved brown. So I got this green color instead which is actually nice. It also comes in Navy, Royal Blue, Red and Black. I think I would like to add some vintage style, crochet, ecru lace to it to give it a more unique look, that is softer and more feminine as well. I don't have access to any of my lace right now though.

The reason I bought this is because I have been staying the summer at my sister's place and she lives four blocks away from a grocery store. It is very convenient to walk there, but lugging home groceries is not as convenient. However, this bag helps a lot. I can just load the groceries I buy into it and change the straps into the backpack position and put it on my back and off I go.

Since it converts from one thing to another by using the same straps to make it a tote and a backpack, it is a nice tote bag (but the handles become a bit short because I need it that way for backpack mode) and it isn't super great as a backpack (I wouldn't take it hiking, for example). That makes it sound like I don't like it, but I do like it! But for something that is convertible for carrying groceries with, I actually love it. It has been so useful to me these past few months.

It has pretty good reviews on Amazon, I really like it and would actually recommend it as well.

However, while I was trying to find the link for it again on Amazon I found this nice looking tote bag backpack combo as well. It's more expensive (around $30) and doesn't have quite as many reviews yet. I don't think this one would work as well for my groceries as the bag I bought, but I love how it looks. I really do like brown.
