I'm looking for a large rolling tote bag that I can use to take my supplies to different classes. Sometimes it's mini book/album class and other times it's a mixed media type class.

What would/do you use and/or what would you recommend.

Thanks

I haven't been to a crop in ages, but Hobby Lobby had some CUTE, CUTE ones with adorable prints, chevron, zebra, leopard. They were by the Paper Studio and were $99 for the big ones, but I'm sure you can use the 40% off coupon if it's not on sale.

I have the huge Crop in Style rolling tote for weekend retreats but it is large and heavy. So I bought the WRMK rolling tote and it is the perfect size for when I want to travel lighter and it would work great for classes.

I highly recommend the Crop in Style rolling totes. Either the Navigator or the XXL depending how much room you need.

I've had my Navigator for several years and it still looks almost brand new. It's been on four different planes and one cruise and is still going strong. This thing is built like a tank!

They have inline skate wheels are roll smoothly. They also offer a Paper Taker that I have and love. It holds tons of paper, and fits smoothly over the carry handle of the tote.

I have a crate on wheels from Staples (it was $19.99 I think). I love it, I used to use my cropper hopper rolling tote but I recently abandoned it.

The rolling tote was too deep and I had trouble reaching into it while sitting on a chair. Plus I couldn't see through all the pockets and I'd forget where I put everything.

Now I use a combination of 12x12 iris cases for pages and albums, clear shoe boxes from the dollar store, and my keep it caddy bag from 31. I like that I can just grab my stuff from home and throw it in the crate I don't have to pack and unpack every little thing. Plus the crate has a lid so I can bungee cord another bag on top if I need to.

When I'm at the crop, the crate sits next to me and I can use the crate like a little table and it's easier to access since it's higher.

Same here. In fact, I liked mine so much, I went and bought a second one.

Do check your local Craigslist. I bought my friend the largest NEW CIS crop bag for $25!! I nearly ran out in my PJ's to snag that, lol! It was so new that the wheels had never seen the pavement. There have been other great values posted before and since.

Another vote for the Crop In Style XXL or the smaller Navigator. They are strong to last long,hold a ton,and the wheels roll smoothly and don't fall off. Just fill them with a comfortable amount you can manage. I have had mine for 10 years,and they still look new. You can find them at HL or online at J's.

Happy scrapping,
JamieH

I have the WRMK 360 and I love it... Sturdy and rolls/steers easily, and I love the inserts(?) it comes with - all the separate zip up bags... Great for keeping stuff organized even out of the tote, and they snap in/out of the tote so you can customize it that way... And those bags have reinforced zippers so they seem like they'll last (only had mine since November)... I got mine at HL with a 40% coupon so it was $70/80...

I had the XXL rolling tote but just gave it away to a new scrapping friend. I host a monthly crop so I take a lot of supplies. I use the portable crate from Staples too. I can add 12x12 boxes, albums, my Cuttlebug, boxes with stamps, etc. I have a 12x12 paper taker that straps onto the collapsible handle when it's elevated and I can add boxes on top and pull everything in to the crop with one trip from the car. Best of all, besides the cheap price, it folds up and stores easily once I'm home.

I bought a fake leather Making Memories rolling tote around 2007 or 2008 and the "leather" has flaked off and it now looks really gross. I'm so disappointed because I paid a fair bit of money for it and I feel like it should have held up longer. Apart from that it was a good size, but I can't really recommend it.

I have the pink and brown one from HL/The Paper Studio, I bought it seven years ago (when all my supplies fit in it, lol. Its been to many crops, and has been packed full the whole seven years and is still going strong. I love that the dividers in the tote are removable but Velcro in place, and most of the individual little compartments Velcro out, which makes it really nice to use.

I have the crop in style navigator. I have had it about 10 years and it still looks great. I originally bought the XXL that other mentioned and it was great too. It was just too big for my needs - and I couldn't lift it when full!
