Q: Can you suggest an everyday handbag that will hold everything but not make my neck ache?
A: Yes. First, clean out your purse and wallet. I know that my wallet is bulging with old receipts and expired coupons, so the first step is keeping the things that live inside your purse streamlined. If you keep a cosmetic bag in your purse, consider how often you actually use the contents. You can probably eliminate many items. Once you have decided on the necessities, you’ll need to select a color that will work for your wardrobe. Neutrals are the safest, as they look great with any color you wear. However, it’s a good idea to get a brightly colored bag if your wardrobe is mostly neutral. A bag with a cross-body option is handy when you need hands free and will shift the weight of the bag from stressing the same muscles.
