For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been carrying 2 days to work – my everyday shoulder bag and a canvas tote from a blogger event. My purse carries my daily necessities, which includes keys, phone, wallet and makeup bag – to name a few. The tote catches everything else, such as planner, umbrella(if needed), and lunch. However, I’ve come to the realization that this doesn’t have to be my norm. I can totally find a new work bag that can carry the contents of both bags.
