I really have been trying to downsize. Remember...I live in a typical NYC apartment. I keep trying to carry smaller bags but it just doesn't work. Add to the usual wallet, keys, tissues and day planner an ipod and folding headphones (I hate earbuds), a cellphone, a folding umbrella, hand sanitizer (new this flu season), and you can see why I love tote bags. When I snagged a treasury on etsy I decided to devote it to tote bags...in all their glory...vintage, modern, big, small, shiny, feminine, chic, industrial, funky...let me stop. There must be some New Year's resolution I can keep!
