Well, it looks like most votes are for totes! I reorganized my current tote and everything seems to fit... For now at least;) I'll probally try a bag when I need one, and if I can find one I like. Thanks for the help guys!

Craftsman tool bag. It has handy inside slots for hoof picks and the small stuff that always gets lost in the bottom of a bag/tote. It was cheap too. I just knock the dirt and hair out every once in a while then throw it in the washer (I have a separate dog/horse washing machine) when it needs it. I like it because it zips up so nothing gets lost.

I use a bag at shows. For travel, tossing it around, running to do ringside grooming, bags work well? They keep stuff from falling out, tipping over and losing all your goodies.

But for day to day use at the barn I prefer a tote. Plastic, so that it can just be hosed down. I bought mine in the cleaning section for less than 1/2 the price of tack store.

I have always used a tote but I am ordering a bag today. I just have too much stuff!

It is too heavy to carry in a tote and stuff always falls out. So, time for a bag!

I use one of these bags -


It's an organizing utility tote from Thirty-One (They come in a lot of different colors and can be personalized and I sell them ). It has seven outside pockets as well as the wide open middle. I have one for grooming supplies and one for meds, and other bags for other things. I have them hanging in our tack room out of the way. Oldest son has one personalized for all of his brushes and what not for his mare.

I really prefer bags. They just are easier to lug around, and they come in pretty colours . I don't find them that hard to clean, they mostly just wipe off, including the inside, unless you get a bunch of junk inside them ( which I don't because I'm a neat freak ).

I have just the run of the mill red grooming tote, with the two sides, etc. Works awesome for me :) Have a bag, but never use it. I just hate how they get the brushes all jumbled and unorganized x.x Can't find anything you need. With the boxes, it's nice and spread out. It does take up more space than a bag though. And you can't really hang it. But other than that, I wouldn't use any other sort of device ... except that tool box someone posted ... that looks pretty sweet :p

LOL, I have a beer cooler on wheels. It can be easily hosed out, holds all my stuff, and is very easy to tote around. It's actually a fabric, not hard plastic so it's flexible, lightweight, and fits in my locker easily. My friends at the barn though wish it contained more than brushes, shampoos, sprays, etc...lol.

Was going to suggest the same thing. I LOVE my utility tote from Thirty-One. It is perfect for all my brushes and can be washed if it gets too dorty - not that i am too concerned. I also have one of their Beach tote bags that is a perfect fit for all my odds and ends like half chaps, helmet, gloves, spurs, lunge rope, etc. It sort of has a waxy coating over the fabric so can just be hose out when necessary.

What's even nicer PoohLP is that they are making lids for the large utility totes now. It's awesome. I'm getting some for other odds and ends for the tack shed.
