I can definitely put these to use! Not just for traveling either, but for many purposes outside of their intended use. I currently and one holding my infant sons bath toys and another full of his socks for easy organization. They work wonderfully for storing items and keeping things tidied up. The only complaint I really have is about the material used. It doesn't feel like they will belong lasting items. I don't think that they will hold up to repeated long-term use as I intend them to be used.
I do love the color of the bags I bought! They are super cute!
