What's in a Bucket Bag?



When: Tuesday, April 9th because it snowed and snowed and snowed.

Well, what are you to do when you have to walk to work and you don't want to get wet from all the lovely snow coming down?  You find your longest coat and tallest boots and appropriate accessories to keep your head and neck warm and you go on your way.  It also helps if you have a handbag that is large enough to stash a small arsenal in.  The Coach tote above that you see is a bucket bag and it can hold buckets of stuff; including a pair of wedges, lunch, sunglasses, a pouch with all my 'just in case' items, a juice box and a few other things.  The other great thing about bucket bags is that when you have them loaded down with items they don't seem all that heavy on your shoulder.  This will save you, in long run, from future back pain I can assure you and aside from foot pain what could be worse?  What's your favorite bag to carry and why?
