If there’s any one word that accurately describes my life, it’s “busy.” Between my two blogs and my graphic design business, my 4-year-old and my husband, there is very little down time in my life. So when I stumbled upon Bagonia’s Busy Bag, I was more than a little intrigued.
I’ve told you that I’m addicted to purses, and I wasn’t kidding. But because we’re trying to live a simpler lifestyle and pare down our belonging to the essentials, I recently decided to part with the purses I rarely use. They will either be sold at our yard sale or be donated to a local thrift store, which benefits a nonprofit that helps victims of domestic violence. I’ve also been looking for a single bag that can meet most, if not all, of my needs. I tend to switch purses a lot, based on my outfit, how much I need to carry, etc. The Busy Bag would certainly simplify things for me.
It is made of vegan leather, vegan suede and reclaimed fabric and has a super-organized interior with compartments for everything. These days, I find myself attached to my iPhone and my new DV2 laptop from HP, and it would be great to put them all in one bag. And I can’t tell you how much time I usually spend hunting through my purses for my keys, or my cell phone, or a pen or whatever. Separate, purposeful compartments and pouches for each of these things would save me an immense amount of time.
To make it even more unique and desirable, the Busy Bag has a hidden compartment in the back that contains three reusable shopping bags. I have a stash of reusable bags, but most are too big to fit in my purse, so I usually carry either my Chico bag or my RuMe bag because they each fold into their own pouch. Having a purse that comes with multiple bags and has a special place for any I might want to add would keep me be a huge plus that would keep me from forgetting them at home.
The Busy Bag is available in two styles: bow & ribbon, shown at top. Bagonia has a bunch of other great styles too, so check out all of them. If you covet them as much as I do, you’ll be happy to hear that Bagonia is working on a new line of products that will launch soon. I can’t wait to share them with you!
