Before kids I would change my handbags every week or two. Or even coordinate with my outfit. I had quite the collection. Most were fairly small and compact. I remember playing a purse scavenger hunt game at a bridal shower and the best person to have on your team is a mom. She has EVERYTHING in there! Once you become a mom there is no such thing as a compact purse. You need a bag that can fit snacks, toys, tissues, medicine, band-aids, juice boxes, wipes, you name it... oh wait you need a few items for yourself too.
These days I just stick with 2-3 handbags that I change up when I get the time or when it's time to clean it out. To organize my purse I like using those "free make-up bags" you get during bonus time. It's a lot easier to find things and great way to use all those bags you accumulate. Plus your cell phone and keys won't get lost in the abyss.
I found a great deal on this handbag on Cyber Monday. (An early Christmas gift) It's a good size and I love the polka dot detail.
