Bag Love

Lately I've been wanting a new purse that has more pockets and organizational compartments because I always end up rooting through my purse for 5 minutes trying to find my phone, or my bart card or my ipod. I just want little pockets where I can place each appropriate item. Where it will always be! Where I will not have to dig to find it!

I recently started re-subscribing to Daily Candy and within the first few days I realized the reason I stopped. They keep showing me things I want that are out of my price range.

The other day they pointed out these wonderful bags by S Stein and they are exactly what I'm looking for. They've got millions of pockets and are made to be durable and long lasting and you can choose the color combination you want. While I admire many of the designer purses, I can never bring myself to even consider buying one due to 1. the price and 2. the fact that I beat up purses. My current seatbelt purses have only withstood the test of time because they are made of such durable material.

So now I've been spending too much time staring longingly at these purses deciding which design I like best and if I can bring myself to pay for one. I mean I could save up for it and buy it in a few months but do I really want to. Can I really be ok with spending what I find to be a little much for a purse. (in relation to designer purses these ones are not SO expensive, but more than I normally pay.)

For those interested I want the toolbag or the studio tote. I'm kinda leaning in the direction of the studio tote as it would be good for all the stuff I cart to and from work as well as for errand running in such when I find that my bag is overflowing with things like books, note pads, scarves, hats, etc.

So I'll just be over here, ogling a purse and cursing my salary.
