Portola Valley, CA, 2016 Holiday Craft Fair
Ella plans to carry her lunch to school in her burlap tote.

"It's rustic and cute. I'm going to use it to carry my lunch," said Ella J. (above) at a craft fair in Portola Valley, CA. The middle school 7th grader had to talk her dad into letting her buy the burlap shopping bag from Tote Your Stuff. "He thinks I shop too much," she said.

If you think your burden's heavy and good fortune seems remote,
Just remember to be grateful that you have some stuff to tote.
