I'm definitely a big purse gal. Anyone that's seen me at the FORTcons or otherwise knows I don't carry cute dainty purses. I need something big enough for all my crap. I have a four-year-old, too, so I need to carry about everything from baby wipes, to a change of clothes (a mishap when she was only a few months old taught me to always at least carry extra pants. ), to toys to entertain her when we're out. I can't bring myself to buy expensive purses either, which is sort of weird for me. I have expensive taste in lots of other areas, but I hate to spend it on purses. I just buy one in tan and one in black from Walmart every year.
