241/365 bag lady? on Flickr.
I tried changing my purse into a bigger purse but that didn’t turned out too well for me. A friend teased me “bag lady” and it got me thinking if I bring too many bags with me.
Usually for work, I have wok bag laptop, a lunch bag, a purse and the small tote. So 4 bags to carry from bus to work.Then I tried combined the small tote and purse into a bigger purse, but that hurt my shoulder. Usually what is in the small tote are kindle, journal, a battery, water bottle, a knitting project or a spinning project.
Then later I switched back to small purse, but leave the small tote home, work laptop bag and lunch bag for going to work.
If I like to by default carry a small purse and a small tote, let be it. It works for me when I’m out I can put stuff quick into small tote without being provided with plastic bag from store. And when I’m in down time like waiting, there’s a spinning project or a knitting project or an article to read on kindle.
When someone criticizes me, I tried to listen and if it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t work out. It’s another way for me to get out of comfort zone.
