Part of the beauty of spending so much of my life poor is that I've discovered a trick to buying nicer clothes for very little money. The trick is called Goodwill. Seriously, I bought myself two pairs of jeans (name brands), a super-cute jean skirt for Bella and a pair of shorts (with the tags still on them) for Coach and spent $21.
Then I felt it was time to accessorize. So I bought a new purse. (I told you the boys would be totally into this post.)
ooh, aah. I actually have a really cool purse that my mom bought me for my birthday. It's from a program called Sak Saum . Check it out. It's kind of awesome.
The thing is the purse I currently carry is one of those HUGE purses that is so very trendy. Seriously, it puts Mary Poppins little carpet bag to shame. It comes in handy when going out with two kids, and I can carry around a spare pair of shoes for myself if I want to. But I thought it might be a bit excessive for our time in Canton, plus I don't want to get stuck carrying a spare pair of shoes for everyone. The bag could start to get heavy. So I invested in a purse that only fits lip gloss, a cell phone and a wallet (no shoes), but not the wallet I have. I needed a smaller wallet. This is dire straights people.
I knew you'd want to see it. So I took a picture. You're welcome.
