Look for Less: Beautiful Beach Totes Under $50

I've found some amazing beach totes for about $20-$30 that have lasted for years and are still in near perfect condition. One of my favorite brands when it comes to totes is Magid (pictured above).

Here are some gorgeous totes under $50. Click the links to shop!
