Bag lady you gone hurt your back
Draggin all them bags like that

Unless I'm going out at night, I always carry a big bag that can fit the random stuff that moms need and then I keep a clutch or wristlet in it to hold my money, cards, phone and lippy.  I'm going to take my time, save my pennies and wait until I find just what I'm looking for.  I've been looking for awhile for something similar to this:

I'm enjoying the process of purging the unnecessary stuff from my life.  Someone once said, "Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough."   I'm so living in that right now.
