New phone = new purse/tote
About a year ago, we ended up buying a new computer and decided to change from a PC to a Mac. It is has been a good change and we have been very happy with our Mac. Well, when our phone plan came up for renewal, I got a call telling me how for not much more money, we could upgrade our phones to iphones. So, I said yes to the iphone. My only complaint? The new phone does not fit in my current purse/planner situation deal. Below, you will see my old/purse planner deal.
I have been using the Franklin planner system for years (since my BYU days) and when my oldest was a baby, (remember he is almost 11), I found this purse on sale. I love this purse. I have taken it with me everywhere and used my planner/purse combo constantly. It has held up amazingly for over 10 years.
Again, my new iphone doesn't fit into this purse anymore and I am probably the only female I know who has used the same purse for over 10 years.
Have I mentioned how much I HATE to shop? So because Franklin Covey did me no wrong with my previous purse, I went back there. I met a nice salesman who informed me all of their purse/bags were on sale and I knew I would not leave the store with out a new one. (Again, I hate to shop, I find stores I like and go back there time and time again. There is a reason why the ladies in the Denver, CO Talbots knew me by name even though I lived in Boulder, CO and passed many female clothing stores to get there.)
Back to the purse . . . I ended up getting this. Remember, I got it on-sale and I hope to use it for the next 10 plus years. And, the one problem with my last purse was that I often was throwing it in a bag so I could take more things with me. With this new "tote" as it is called, I have it all in one and there is pocket that fits my iphone perfectly. I still miss my old purse/planner but I am loving this new one. There is room for many books, various toys, a notepad (for my kids to write on when we are some place and they are bored,) etc. Change is good.
