bag 11 – claimed

 

Fringe. I don’t always love it, but when I do, it’s likely¬†on a bag. I bought this brown Raj fringe bag at TJ Maxx at least seventeen years ago, probably more. It’s a fun bag, but a bit of a black hole (meaning it’s cavernous with not a lot of organization inside) and I have another bag with fringe that I like a whole lot better. Even though I have loved this bag for years, it’s time to let it go.

I admit that I thought I would never get rid of this bag. I have a friend who really loves this bag and she said if I ever get rid of it to let her know. I was like, “yeah, girl, right… I’ll do that.” So I did that, but it’s up for grabs to you, too, because it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.

One of my Lenten learnings through the years is that we don’t need all of this stuff. The more I give away, the more I want to give away. The more bags I give away, the better I feel. Many of you practice generosity during Lent; I love seeing what you’re doing. I pray that I can continue to be this generous throughout the rest of the year.

day 34

I know I should link a lot of these posts to their¬†previous posts, because I wrote much more about them in the past and I’m forgetful. This time I’m doing it. I carried this bag yesterday and today; I really enjoy it. Click the link above and see why.

day 26

I got this bag years ago at the Tri-County Lane Bryant. It’s so cool; I remember when I bought it someone else bought the other one that was still there, and someone else tried to talk me out of it so she could buy it. Ummmmmm no. That was around 16 or so years ago.

day 24

Today I used this echo tote I got at TJ Maxx a few years ago. I had a black and white one just like this and I have a large overnight bag in this brand. Very lightweight and fun. I particularly like the handles and adjustable crossbody strap. Fits a laptop and all of my other goodies.

It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale.

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.

bag 24 – claimed

Brown baggallini tote with more pockets and pouches than ever. It’s an explosion of organization. One large zipper pouch chills between two large outer snap-closure sections. No exterior pockets but you have plenty inside. Great for a weekend trip or daily life. This was a goodwill rescue at $5 $4.50 with my Senior discount.
