So I started sorting through what was gathered there. I threw away a fair amount; made a Goodwill pile; a take to work pile and piles for each member of the family. My pile turned out to be a bag pile. I had no idea I had so many bags.
There was the collapsible carry-all bag:
The old L.L. Bean handprint beach bag:
The new made-from-a-Times-Square-Target-ad-by-our-friend-Josh-Goldstein beach bag:
A couple of free-with-makeup-purchase bags from Mike's grandmother. The striped one went with me to the Dominican Republic:
And an awesome 1-strap Mustard Sprout backpack that is perfect for trips to the zoo or other places I need to carry a bunch of stuff but still want to be hands-free:
Finding all those bags told me two things about myself:
- I like red.
- I like bags. I think that has something to do with the fact that no matter what size I am, bags always fit. And they hold a lot of stuff, which I tend to collect.
So, are you a bag lady? Big bags? Small bags? Or are you a minimalist and just carry a small wallet with your id and credit card? Is the number of bags you own directly proportional to the number of children you have? Do you fellas carry a man-bag? Inquiring minds want to know...
