My Versatile Grab Bags from SM

SM department store sure houses a lot of neat and affordable products.  And here are just 2 that I am so lovin' to bits right now.


Grab Shopping Bag (Php129.75)

I'm trying to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, which is why I have a shopping bag handy with me whenever I go out.  The only problem I find with some of them is the flimsy material used in making them.  I've even experienced having my shopping bag slashed at Market! Market! a few months ago.  Thankfully, nothing was stolen.

So when I came across Grab's version, I was so thrilled, to say the least.

Not only was the cloth really thick, it also came with a zipper to boot.  Yahoo!!

Like all other portable shopping bags, this too is compact.  After lying it down flat, you just fold it and viola!


Shopping bag ready for action!

Grab shopping bags retail for Php129.75.  A little pricier than the others but I like the feel of it more.  =)

Grab's Insulated Lunchbag (Php199.75)

Grab's insulated lunchbags are a sight for sore eyes. They're funky and so cute. With a wide variety of designs to choose from, bringing in your lunch to school or work has never been this stylish.

But I didn't buy a Grab insulated lunchbag for storing my meal.  Nosiree.  I bought one because:

1. they make such handy diaper bags.  Whenever I need to step out of the house with the Little One for a really short time (say going to mass), I choose to bring this bag instead of her regular big, bulky diaper bag.

Here are both bags placed side-by-side.

The grab bag is definitely more than half the diaper bag's frame.

And I get to pack tons of necessities too.


I'm able to fit in these -- 2 bottles, milk formula container, a change of clothes, diaper, changing map, and bottles of powder and alcohol.

Diapers, bottles and clothes, oh my!

2.  Aside from being the Little One's occasional diaper bag, I also use it as a handy DSLR carrier.

Stuffed again!

Fits everything I need for a short photo walk outside.

Handy dandy

Compared to my regular camera bag, this one is less of the frame and more handy.  Just perfect for those short photo walks.  J

I've said it once and I'll say it again.  I am so lovin' these bags.  J


Grab bags are available at all SM department stores nationwide.


  1. eco friendly shopping bags rock! dapat lahat ng pinoy meron nyan :)

  2. Those bags are neat and very affordable too. I have a shopping bag that resembles a potato sack and makes my skin itch. :-p

    And oh, producing eco bags is a small biz of mine in the Phlippines since early last year. SM is one of my clients (shamless plug. LOL)

  3. I've been searching for the perfect shopping bag since most of the ones I've tried have worn out easily. Like you, I also love SM! They got it all for us :)

  4. last sun, i was checking this bag, ang mura noh! ok din na dslr bag, hindi takaw pansin sa holdaper. =)

  5. that's a good idea for dslr! thanks!

  6. Waterproof bag! Very timely since it's starting to rain lately. :)

  7. So cool that the lunch bag can be a diaper and camera bag too! Great idea! SM Department Store is really a great source for great finds ;)

  8. Thanks for all the comments! =)

    @Christian | Lakad Pilipinas: I agree. We all need to do our part in saving the environment. =)

    @Mrs.A: Wow! More details! =)


  9. nice idea about the lunchbox box also being a camera bag ;D dslr bags are way too expensive kasi :O

  10. Cutesy bags! Awesome idea to put the SLR in the lunch bag! I place our SLR in the baby bag so as people wouldn't know something important is stashed in it. LOL.

  11. Wow, nice idea on the other things you can put inside the Grab's insulated lunch bag. I love that it's affordable and cute too!

  12. I also have a foldable shopping bag like this from SM,nice nga ng mga designs nila no? gusto ko yung lunch bag,dual purpose :)

  13. hi tin! visit my blog, i have something for you =)

  14. @hazel: It's great as a temp carrier. =)

    @Pinay Travel Junkie: I know how you well. It's so hard sometimes to make DSLRs less noticeable

    @Yedy Calaguas: Sm's so amazing sometimes. =)

    @-Sapphire Mommy (Mommy Jo)-: Yup! They're done a long way in terms of design. =)

    @michi: Yey! Thank you! =)
