I’m pretty sure that women love bags and some women even collect it. But when I was in elementary and high school, I only used one bag for one school year. As far as I can remember I always used backpack because of the heavy load of books and notebooks.
Things change when I was in college because I only used shoulder bag, good enough to fit my small notebook, pen and wallet.
When I started working, that’s the time that I spend money for bags. As much as possible I want my bag to match my corporate outfit. I have to do it so I will not look like a college students. It always happened to me when I was working in a bank, bank customers thought I was not an employee but an OJT student. At that time I don’t have my uniform yet.
Things change when I became a full time mom; I lose interest in buying bags because I rarely go out. When I had a kid, I only use one bag which is a diaper bag. I’m a fan of Baby Couture diaper bag. hehehe!
Now that my son is studying, I’m using big bag because I tend to bring the whole house when I’m out. I have umbrella, son’s raincoat, wallet, phone, wipes, tissue, keys, bills, sanitizer, extra bag and many more.
I just realized that you will buy bags according to your needs and not just wants. I will not buy branded bags because we’re just commuting when we go to school. Don’t expect me to buy new hamilton kb14/kb50 stand bag at guitar center because I’m not a musician. And I will not carry a purse when I’m going out because my stuff won’t fit.
