:CROP: Finding the bag...

My first ever crop is drawing closer and I needed something to pack all my loot in...

So, I headed to to see what I could find...and I found this:
The Mackinac Moon Rolling Tote Suite!

Please note that this photo is not from the Joann's website. In fact, the website actually only shows the main bag...all zipped up...but I generally don't make a purchase of this $$ amount without doing a little research and found this more detailed photo of the full package elsewhere on the web. They do have the option of buying the main bag only, but for the price I think you get a much better deal if you get the 'Suite'. was still a lot of money to spend...especially right now with everything that has been going on financially for us, but I had some money left if my PayPal account from selling my scrapbooking mags and idea books on eBay and even better, was running a 40% off sale on all their scrapbooking storage AND I had a free shipping code, so I decided to go for it!

This is why I LOVE They almost always have some really great sales running.

In case you are wondering, the 40% off sale on scrapbook storage is still running. OR, they now have a 50% off any regularily priced item (CODE: TTF120) on their homepage that would make it an even better deal!

Now, I had never heard of Mackinaw Moon before so was a little apprehensive for the package to arrive and get a real-life look at my purchase, but it arrived just the other day and I must say that so far, I am pleased.

Here are the main features:
  • Rolling storage set includes a zip-shut tool organizer, shoulder tote and a rolling tote.
  • Zip-shut tool organizer features two 5-inch x 9.75-inch clear zippered pockets and 30 elastic loops.
  • Shoulder tote has outside snap-shut pocket, a large zippered pocket that divides the inside of tote into 2 compartments, 1 side having 2 clear zippered pockets and the other side having 21 elastic loops. Either side will fit a 12-inch x 12-inch album.
  • Rolling tote features 2 more clear, zippered pockets on the inside back wall and an adjustable divider to create just the right size compartments. An outside zippered pocket that has 3 zip-lock pouches on rings, an outside zippered pocket for credit card and ID slots, 3 pouch style pockets on the front of tote, and a zip-close top that has 30 more elastic loops.
  • Lining is color coordinated to match the outside trim color.
  • Available in Coral/Chocolate or Periwinkle/Chocolate.
  • Made of micro-fiber material.
  • Measures: 18 inches high x 15 inches wide x 9.5 inches deep.

I'm going to start packing this weekend...we'll see how much loot will fit!!
