It is Thankful Thursday again! This week I am going to be materialistic. It is ok to be materialistic if you are thankful?
Anyways I am thankful for my NEW BAG.
Keith gave me a purse for my birthday. I loved the purse BUT the style was not ideal for the NYC lifestyle I am attempting to adapt to. Being the practical person that I am, I could not justify the expense of an unused purse even if it was a gift. I know I know! Returning a gift is horrible!
After returning the purse, we both spent an extensive amount of time searching for the ideal bag. I would pop into random stores while walking home, Keith searched online, we both went shopping, etc. There were so many candidates but they all seemed to have a downfall. This one was too small, that one was too large, I can’t fit things in those since they are divided in the middle, it has no compartments, some were not timeless and some were just ugly.
A couple of weeks ago we FINALLY (3 months later) bit the bullet and bought one!!!
Let’s be honest … there is nothing special about the bag …. but it works! It is a large HUGE black leather tote. I am able to fit my lunch (and Keith’s lunch), an extra set of walking shoes, umbrella, coffee thermos, water bottle and other necessities in it. What a relief it is to no longer be carrying multiple bags for all these items. Oh and did I mention it was cheaper than the original purse? This weekend Keith and I are making a quick trip to New Orleans so I will put the bag to the test. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
