Whether you love or hate the new law, paying 10-cents for a shopping bag is now part of life in San Francisco.  

The smart solution? Invest in a few awesome reusable bags that work for your lifestyle. From sturdy wool & recycled sailcloth carryalls (#3) to insulated, lightweight and packable grocery totes (#1), here are a few of our favorites.

Heck, we even found totes that do good -- for every FEED 2 bag (#7) purchased, two hungry children will be provided with school meals for one year. How's that for a holiday gift idea?

Tip:  Skip the paper and "wrap" your holiday gifts in one of these bags -- with a bow on top, of course.
