I love handbags! Honestly – my mother used to tease me about it when I lived at home because I always had my handbag with me.
But you know what happens if you buy something that doesn’t suit your lifestyle? Everything is a mess and you can’t find anything in there.
So if I can, I try and choose a bag with the right amount of pockets. If you ever go into a handbag shop and you see a woman emptying all her stuff into a new handbag, that’s me ;) Because I want to make sure my diary fits nicely along with everything else .
The two bags pictured are absolutely perfect for me! I wish I had more exactly like them and I’ll tell you why now.
1. Two pockets – to separate the book stuff from the other stuff
2. The book portion has enough space for my A5 day planner, my small notebook and my business notebook (where I write my weekly business goals).
3. The other side has two little pockets. One for tissues, my little, orange calculator and a pen, and the other for my cell phone.
4. You can see my gorgeous, green wallet on the left, next to that my make-up bag and my blue pencil case.
So everything fits in beautifully.
Karen, here is the red handbag you commented on before.
But if I do use a bag with little or no pockets, then I use some see-through mesh bags (R12,99 for 3 different sizes at Sheet Street) to organise my stuff. It makes it so easy to find things and to change handbags.
