day 29

Sunday was a long travel day so I brought this gray Travelon bag. It has equally sized main compartments on both sides, so using it for one day was rough as i couldn’t remember what was where unzip zip unzip zip. It’s got lots of great organization, and it’s lightweight.

Cool with me.

day 27

I recently added this new Kipling bag to the family, found at the Este St. Vincent de Paul. Lots of times bags like this end up at the thrift store without their signature charm. Kipling’s bags have a furry monkey. It’s cool, and I can definitely live without it. Thought I’d try it out on a road trip. Love it.

I really appreciate their tagline – live light. That’s my plan, Kipling. I’m trying.

day 23

This Ugg crossbody saddlebag style purse came from the Mt. Washington goodwill. Those were the good old days. The color goes with lots as it’s not exactly brown, nor is it burgundy. It’s a dark brownish brick color.

It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale. Including this one. Or any other ones. You get it now.

day 19

Liz Claiborne small bag with leopard sides and lots of details. New to me from the Woodlawn goodwill for $6 – don’t forget your senior discount if you’re over 50. We’ve earned it.

day 17

Couldn’t give up my Banana Republic tote so I reached in the bin with smaller bags and found this Miu Miu bag to carry inside of the tote. This one has lots of aspects to check to see if it’s real.

If it’s a fake, they worked HARD.

day 15

My Banana Republic tote carried organic apples and donut holes to youth group meeting today along with a laptop and all of my other stuff. We planned for our Heifer Fair next Sunday. I got this at the thrift store, I think. Need to read the blog to remember. Front pocket is great for phone and/or keys. It can be a bit of a black hole, so it’s better with a smaller purse inside.

day 14

This bag tells a story. Found at the Mt. Washington goodwill in the Sands Montessori days. Makes a great overflow shopping bag. There was a great sale on Murray’s parm and Romano cheeses.
