A few years ago, I started to limit my collection to what would fit into ONE storage container (the size of said storage container is private). I also made a rule for myself that every new purchase would require at least one or more existing bags to exit the premises. This was a little tough to get used to, but it did help me evaluate a little better. I even installed a system so I could hang/display my favorites. Pretty Pretty Pretty
However, as I've been purging my possessions more recently, I've parted ways with quite a few. I plan to go through them a few more times in the next 2 months--every time gets easier and easier after all.
WITH ALL THAT SAID, I officially want one of these bags...check them out! Better Life Bags are custom bags with a story. Not only does she give a percentage to her community and developing entrepreneurs through kiva.com, but she hires women that couldn't otherwise work to create these awesome bags!! That's style & charity people.
Some of my favorites are:
- Clara Lynn: I love a great tote!
- Tracey: I recently discovered I kind of dig the wristlet concept
- Laptop Cover: for obvious reasons
- Beverly as shown in the pic above.
I'm not sure what fabrics I'd get, but these are definitely going on my list next time I'm treating myself to a new bag!!! Or if anyone needs gift ideas....
