Tote Bag Excess?

Tote Bag Excess?

We've been wondering: is there such thing as too many reusable tote bags? We're considering our own glut: two in the car, two in the kitchen, and cleaning out the basement we came across another stash, making for three more.

While we're sure that seven tote bags will balance out the petroleum, paper, and energy needed to make the alternative, we can't help but think that the sudden stylishness of tote bags (viz., Anya Hindmarch) is its creating a new kind of problem: tote bags that need to be replaced, not because they are worn out, but because they are (gasp) out of style.
