There are so many reasons to visit IKEA, including, but not limited to: the smart and affordable furniture, the delicious meatballs and frozen yogurt, and, of course, the hugely useful and resilient blue FRAKTA bags.

One can carry many things in these 99-cent polypropylene totes, if one were so inclined. The FRAKTA can literally transport a small wooden dresser inside of it, and can hold ALL the groceries if you want it to. Heck, you could probably even tote around your toddler in it. But the utility of the bags doesn’t stop there.

Inspired by the recent release of a $2,000+ leather FRAKTA-inspired tote by Balenciaga and the awesome ad/response from IKEA demonstrating how to recognize the original, the internet has been busily repurposing the FRAKTA into some useful and some merely entertaining items. Here are a few of the best so far:
