HI everyone! I'm sure that might seem like a weird question to some; but, I am on the verge of chucking mine. I rarely carried a purse before I had my daughter. It seems that after I had her, I accumulated more stuff. And yes, I caught that "disease" that most women catch at some point....the "oh I gotta have that purse" syndrome. I have acquired a nice, medium size, heavy duty, plastic tub full of purses. I have the formal clutch, the hobo bag, the Disney bag, the Marilyn bags....and more than one essential skull and crossbones bags.
Here's my ordeal though. I have some upper back problems, and recently...the purses are killing me! I don't care if I carry it on the right shoulder, left shoulder...for five minutes, or for an hour. It kills me. I actually didn't put two and two together until I accidentally left my purse in a JC Penney dressing room. Suddenly, I felt so light! I could stand up straight! I wasn't popping my neck and back every five seconds! Then, it hit me..."hey dummy...where's your purse?" After a brief panic mode.....and thankfully, finding my purse where I left it...it hit me.....
Why am I torturing myself like this?
So, I am considering chucking the purse, and as tacky as it may seem....carrying all my cards, licenses, etc in either a card case....or a very small (even maybe a man's ) wallet.
Do any of you do this? Do you have any other solutions? What kind of purses do you prefer to carry? Do they bother you?
