I have a big faux leather tote from Target. Inside that I have a black nylon Nine West "junior purse," that I bought at a thrift shop, where I keep all my important stuff.

I stick mail, books and sometimes my lunch in my big tote.

OMG Kate I love the color!!!!!!!! I know what you mean about black, when the girs from NYC visit the lake here you can always tell who they are. Same black CC Coach logo bags.

Marlow, that's a great idea with the bag in a bag!

I've been stalking this bag for weeks, and I finally found a sale at the Fossil site, and I bought it:

Fossil Morgan Traveler, ZB4798| FOSSIL&reg

Can't make this image appear. Drat! But it is the Fossil Morgan Traveler in mushroom color. I like it a lot. I prefer Fossil bags to any other. Hard to justify the expense, though.

I've still to transfer my stuff to a summer handbag since we haven't quite made the transition here to summer clothing yet. (MN)

This is the one it's in right now.

I love the way this bag matches nearly every pair of brown shoes I have but it can be a nuisance trying to find things down in the bottom of it.

I'm old, I can't justify spending hundreds on a purse/handbag. Plus I'm pretty much....cheap.

I have a Big Buddha slouchy bag that I bought right around Christmastime. It's goldish in color, not leather. I like it.

I don't ever have a bunch of bags that I can change out. I would like to get a good, classic leather bag that I could carry year-round.

It's not that big. It's a medium size bag. Besides that, I'm tall and I look silly carrying a tiny purse.

But to each her own.

I remember as a child asking my aunt why her purse was so big.

She said 'because if I'm ever stranded on a deserted island I can survive for a week.'

Seriously, she had a toothbrush, toothpaste, chocolates in there.......
