I stopped into Meijer today and saw that a bunch of red, white, and blue items were marked up to 80% off as part of their post-4th-of-July clearance. If anyone’s looking for a big utility tote, Meijer has had them again this year in quite a few different styles for $24.99 each. However, the red, white, and blue stripe style is on clearance for $8.99 with the other 4th of July items! My Algonquin Meijer had eight of them left today.
I first wrote about the quality of these Meijer utility totes back in 2013, and I still use ours regularly for trips to the pool, picnics, and more. Mine is a different fabric, but the style’s the same. These Meijer totes have pockets on each end of the bag, and there’s a center pocket inside too. This $8.99 price is even less than the $11-something I paid for mine four years ago!
It’s funny — I have another post about Target’s version of these bags on clearance that I wrote in 2015, and that post is still getting comments from people this summer asking for deals on these kinds of bags. If you’re looking for one too, it’s probably worth checking out your local Meijer!
