I don't like to spend a lot of money on handbags. I normally end up buying one for each new season and storing or donating the previous one.
Recently, I purchased this used bag online at Etsy for $30. It looks big enough to carry my magazines/books and day planner. It also has a latch on top which is important because I hate picking up smaller items that fall out of my bag.
It's colorful enough for both spring and summer. I guess we see how long this one lasts. However, I know a perfect place to put it once our public affair is over.
