Do you carry a big bag and tend to be lost in it when searching for some thing?

I tend to spend some time finding a particular thing...be it a pen, keys, etc and even in small bags I can't imagine some people carrying big bags and still be organized. I would definitely be lost while doing the wild search. And yet I like big bags, so convenient that I could put a lot of things. My friends used to tease me that I could use the bags as a weapon to defend myselfagainst any muggers. Which would you prefer and why? And what about the guys...do you feel the same too? Thank you for sharing.

My purse is just a small one I don't like to carry a big bag I don't like things that are bulky my purse is just big enough to carry my wallet, my cell phone, my car keys and my checkbook.

I love big bags...can throw whatever I need, or think I need, inside. Like handphone, wallet, pens, combs, compact powder, lipstick, makeup, tissues, notepad and so on. And it is sometimes very embarassing, especially at the cashiers, when I have to hunt for my wallet and it's hiding somewhere!

I'm always losing things in my purse, pens,cellphones, makeup,change cards. You name it I've lost it. Even if I have a purse that has compartments for things I will forget which compartment I have the stuff in and have to go back again and look.

Coach hobo bag - i love big bags!
I do love bags. I do spend a great deal of money on bags. But I do prefer my big bags especially during workdays. I can bring a lot of things. I used to spend so much time looking for some items like a pen, keys and others. Later on, I considered using small pouches that I can keep inside the bag. I put small things inside the pouch. Like one pouch would contain keys and USB. Another pouch would contain my pens. By doing so, it's easier to look for the things I need.

lol ^_^ It's very normal and common, i guess.. I do carry quite a big bag too and i often have some trouble finding my things even though there are different compartments for my things.. lol ^_^ I guess it's due to the way u keep the things in our bag and also the way u carry it, as the saides and angles are wrong, thus we tend to search all over the bag just for 1 small item.. lol

lol..I don't think guys carry bigger bags than the women. What do you have inside your bag, I wonderthat require you to do so. Or is it something that is so precious that you need to carry it around

i'm a nurse and i work for 12 hours so i ussually carry a big bag wherein i put my scrub suit, my extra underwears, toiletries, my planner and diary, makeup, pdq, and just about other stuffs i use during my work or on my free time but i seem to have inherited my grandmother's ways of outting my stuffs in an organizer then placing each on my bag so my toiletries are in one organizer, my planners, [pen and whatever i need for office or writing stuff are in one organizer and so on and so forth....having a big bag doesn't mean you just have to put everything in it without checking or even trying to organize your stuff... my flashlight, swiss knife and peppermint spray stays in my bags pocket for easy access my keys always in my pocket... it just take a lot of effort to fix your stuff and arrange it in the most simple way you can so that it'll be very handy for you

Well, well, well, I used to have this predicament. LOL! I just hate it when it takes me so much time "digging" in my bag for something. Last year, my friends who had a business came up with a bag organizer. Now I dont care if my bag is big as long as my bag organizer is there. It has a lot of pockets and it is very flexible for any type of bag. It's very very useful to me.

LOL....I love bags. So I guess I can say that I use big bags. BUT.....I have two purses inside it!! one is my work purse and the other is my all the time purse. I also have my makeup bag and a small bag of stuff for my kids (wipes,snacks,little books etc.) And when I am looking for something small, I shake my purse with my hand on the bottom and I can usually find those lost keys, pen, gum but I also come up with a few cheerios and a bunch of change!!! LOL!!!!!

Hi Desierra1004. I have a very big bag and it just gets filled up with junk all the time. Its funny because I will get fed up and switch to a smaller bag only to find it makes me carry more bags to hold all my sutff. I just can not win. Good luck to you. Hartley

I prefer big bags alright, so I could everything and anything in that one bag. I do choose bags with lots of compartments in them. So it would be more organized inside the bag. I can't stand small bags, they can't even fit my cell phones and wallets sometimes. I have two cell phones and a big wallet so I need my bags big. It's a lot more comfortable that way.

i love big bags! my tip for you: i came across this "organizer" at SM dept store where you can put in all your necessary things and it has a zip so things won't fall off...the good thing with this organizer is that when you switch bags, you don't have to go through all the trouble of transferring all your stuff to the other bag, you just move the organizer and whalla! if you can't find an organizer like that in your area, you can improvise by using a pouch which will hold all your important stuff. :D

Desierra I would look silly carrying a teeny weeny bag as I am a large seniorcitizen so I carry a large over the shoulder bag and its organized so I do not have a lot of trouble finding my keys or other things such as my check book and wallet. all have their own places. lol
