Anyone who's been around me since this time last year has seen one of my two favorite purses: the purple or teal big-ass bag that I carry everywhere. It really doesn't bother me that they're so big that I can't ever find anything. My cell phone rings and rings, I dig for it, can't find it until it's too late (or I realize it was in my pocket the whole time... a la Shemanski/Olive Graduation Party 2009). Need an ink pen? There's one in there. Good luck finding it. Where's my wallet? Probably buried under the notepad, four tubes of lipgloss, and eyeglass case. Laptop? Check. Fits perfectly.
I bought the bags for $20 each at Target last summer. My only regret was that I didn't also get a yellow one. Well, look what I found yesterday before I got really frustrated with strange elasticky tops!
A Cheap, Cute, Yellow Bag at Target.
I can't wait to use it. The pockets will certainly help with the organization issue of version 1.0.
