I have a real affinity for bags. Not purses per se, as I haven’t really carried anything resembling a woman’s purse for at least a decade. I like mini-backpacks, small messenger bags and some of the urban sling style bags. One of my favorite bags is an old Eagle Creek bag meant to be used for carrying binoculars– which I have used as such, along with a time-worn copy of Peterson’s Bird Guide. I have a couple of Mountainsmith totes that I use for lugging books back & forth from the library- super sturdy things with a rubberized bottom. The small one works great as a purse/lunch bag. One of the ways I find out about bags that I might want, er, uh, I mean serve a practical purpose in my life (in case my husband is reading this) is from Flickr’s photo group entitled “What’s in your bag.”
Do you have a favorite bag?
