Stop Lugging The Totes
I used to carry a big purse. It was one of those black hole, holds everything, massive bags. It had everything I could need in it as well as old gum wrappers and crumpled business cards. After a while of carrying this bag, I realized I hated it. I hated purses. I do not like the idea of carting around baggage. I do not like that I am expected to have all this stuff on me at all times when men can leave the house with a wallet and a key. So I quit. I stopped carrying the purse and switched to the most basic alternative I could. I made a simple sleeve-like wallet with room for several credit cards and my business cards. Its simple, small, and sexy. Then I made more wallets and clutches so that you can stop lugging that tote around town.
