I finally caved and bought a new gym bag. My first two gym bags I bought at the flea market had huge rips on the inside pockets and inner lining. I guess it’s true as the old saying goes, good things aren’t cheap and cheap things aren’t good. For the last few months, I’ve been toting around a reusable shopping bag to the gym. I actually got this complimentary reusable shopping bag from my gym. I really love the motivational quotes printed all over it, but I couldn’t deny that its days as a gym bag were numbered when the straps started to tear. And let’s face it. Who wants to use a reusable shopping bag as a gym bag?
My old “gym tote”:
I decided to spend a pretty penny and buy a quality bag to carry all my fitness doodads and whatsits. I also needed a bag that would accommodate my yoga mat. Time to transfer my items from my old gym/reusable shopping bag into my chic new Elle Yoga/gym tote.
- plenty of room for my gym clothes
- my waist pouch for my ear-buds and phone
- water bottle
- extra socks
- gym towel
- and an extra compartment for my tablet. This is perfect because I often take my tablet to the gym if I want to use one of my fitness apps for cardio.
I think it was a wise and necessary purchase for sure.
What’s in your gym bag?
Do you use reusable shopping bags for things other than groceries?
