Hey, you want a nice MetaFilter tote bag with "[more inside]" on it? Fine, you can go buy one from TopatoCo now!

This has been one of the perennial requests over the years and, hey, here they are!

I already have, like, six tote bags already. Now I have to add a seventh. Ah well.

I just bought this adorable tote last weekend at a local books and music festival. Now I need this one. Then I'll need things to put in it. It's a vicious cycle.

I have more than enough enough tote bags but not until today did I realize I needed one more.

I love that! I also don’t need another tote bag but will be purchasing another tote bag.

To me, it sounds like you all probably need a tote bag to store your other tote bags in.

I love toting things around. Excellent!

Tired = Trader Joe's totes stuffed with TJ's totes
Wired = METAFILTER [MORE INSIDE] TOTES

Has there been any testing to determine how well this new product totes ma goats?

Hooray and thank you!

Am I the only one who read the Best of MetaFilter blog headline "Metafilter Totes for Sale" and had to do a double-take? Glad it's just an ad for merch and not an offer to be rolled into some media conglomerate. ;P

Why would I want to tote maggots, and why in the hell would I want more maggots inside the tote?

I have no idea how these people got their maggots wedged into their totes, or why.

I cannot resist. It's a very meta good [more inside].

I also cannot resist writing in my vote for #1quidnunc kid when I am in total distress at the balloted choices come election day.

I live the meta life: I pet croutons; I carry meta everywhere I go.

These are not the colors I ordered but still, it is nice and I need it.

How about Them Stuff Toters,
Ain't they buff?
Goin' off everywhere
A-totin' they stuff.

Totin' them groceries,
Totin' they gear,
Needin' it later,
Keepin' it near.

Look at them Stuff Toters,
Ain't they funny?
Some use a canvas sack,
Some use a gunny.

How to be a Stuff Toter?
If I may emote it:
Gitcher junk and stuff it,
Go to work and tote it!

(Apologies to Mason Williams)

Is something I would need to be a hardcore toter to get?

If you're toting especially hard cores, your bag may need some extra reinforcement.

It's like a real-world Bag Of Holding!

Oh my god I have been asking for this for years (one, two, also two, four, five) and I will dutifully order one now.

Ok, but then how do I sort out my different types of totes?
posted by Secretariat at 11:34 AM on April 20


There's a surprising number of people in this thread who are totting up their totes.
posted by Greg_Ace at 11:49 AM on April 20


Woot! That's a must-have!

And the MeFi "Everyone Needs a Mug" mug is still in stock, but it's your last chance to buy the "If You're Not Paying For It, You're Not the Customer; You're the Product Being Sold." t-shirt.

Omg first I won a Steotch tote bag, then I simply had to buy a TAZ tote bag, and now this. Apparently 2019 is the year of the tote!

I have both of those. You may now envy me. Or, and that's a MUCH better idea, order some stuff for yourself.

Okay, fine! I ordered them! Stop nagging me, sheesh!

When I saw "MeFi Totes For Sale" in my RSS reader, from the Best Of Blog, I had a brief, panicked moment of "wait, didn't Cortex just buy it?"

Real weird that I still have a banner about the crouton petting zoo but not one about the new merch…
posted by Going To Maine at 9:54 AM on April 21


You can just click the little "x" button in the upper right of the crouton banner if you're tired of seeing it.
posted by Secretariat at 11:33 AM on April 21


I'll get a tote banner up next week, I just wanted to let the zoo have a lot of time.

I need a new mug even less than I need a new tote bag, but somehow, the mug hopped into the shopping cart along with the tote, and I can't bear to seperate them now.
posted by PearlRose at 4:15 PM on April 28


My new tote arrived and I love it! Thanks folks!
