Recently added to the rapidly growing list of ways I’m turning into my mother (a list that also includes hits like “#25: Washing bars of soap so they look nice and clean in the soap dish” and “#18: Writing lists for everything”) — “#37: Putting bags within bags.”
My mother is notorious for doing this.
At any given moment, there are at least five or six smaller bags inside her purse, each dedicated to storing something different, like medication, snacks, office supplies, first aid, gadgets…
And wouldn’t ya know it? Slowly but surely, I’m going that route.
Never mind that the roomy Poverty Flats Perforated Satchel I’ve been toting around already has three deep pockets on the sides (what is it with me and deep pockets lately??), I’m also putting other bags inside it…
…like the new $34 MAC Temperature Rising Makeup Bag, which has been holding some of my beauty booty essentials.
This slim zippered bag looks deceptively small, but it actually fits a ton of stuff.
Things I need quick access to go in the front pocket — iPhone, tubes of gloss, stuff like that.
