My tote bag doubles as a garbage can. It’s not an actual rubbish bin slung over my shoulder; rather, it’s just a regular bag bursting at the seams with rubbish. After spending my entire life wading through fifteen candy wrappers, three pairs of scissors, and a coupon for toaster pastries to get you that last piece of lint-covered gum. I’ve been trying to get behind the idea of prepping different tote bags for different occasions.
Do you find yourself in need of a bag intervention as well? I invite you to embrace a tote bag from Purse Bazar for every experience alongside me.
Your roommate has spent the entire week working on her high notes for the school musical. And as a result, you’re starting to get a real sense of what it must have been like to be in Les Misérables. There appears to be only one treatment option: spending the weekend at home. Even though your younger brother has built a Lego fort in your room, and your parents have forgotten to tell you about the meeting of the neighborhood watch that is taking place in the living room, being so far away from campus has never seemed to have such a positive impact on your mood.
Best part? Since your drawers are already crammed full of your tried-and-true favorites, you don’t need to pack as much into your overnight tote bag.
GOING TO THE GYM
Going to the gym is such a pain in the neck. However, masochism manifests itself most clearly when one goes to the gym when they are unprepared. If you’ve ever tried to run barefoot or use a rowing machine without wearing a hair tie, your entire workout will feel like an eye-roll emoji that’s been played over and over again. Prepare yourself for success by stuffing your tote bag for gym, with necessities such as deodorant, hair bands, socks, nutritious snacks, and a water bottle. This will put you in the best position to achieve your fitness goals.
The knowledge that you can pick up your tote bag any time and be ready to go to the gym without missing a beat will be a burden lifted off your shoulders.
GOING TO CLASS
When your schedule consists of classes all day, it can be challenging to maintain the mindset of “you only live once.” Fight against being boring by stuffing your tote bag with reminders of how cool you are and selecting supplies in bright colors that make you happy. This will help you to avoid looking lame. Don’t forget to bring your headphones with you so you can blast that new album by Frank Ocean while you run to get to Political Science.
Your night out isn’t complete until you start yelling, “This is my song!” at each song. To get your tote bag ready for a party, toss in a throwback disposable camera, some miscellaneous accessories for a possible costume change in the middle of the evening. And a tongue-in-cheek flask (don’t tell anyone, it’ll be our little secret!). In the event that you need to give someone a makeover in the span of ten minutes while they are riding in a cab, tote bag from Purse Bazar make excellent makeup bag.
A travel tote bag is an absolute necessity if you are going to be studying in another country or going on a spring break trip that could be the subject of its own reality show. When you are in an unfamiliar location, the knowledge that you are concealing a world of comfort and safety under your arm will make you feel significantly more adventurous. Aside from that, it is the ideal location for storing things like maps, sunscreen, and completely pointless translation dictionaries.
