J calls me a 'Bag Lady'. I don't claim that title. If he meant it in a kind, loving manner because I like purses, then I would relish the title. I DO love purses. As it stands, I don't like the title. 'Bag Lady' conjures up visions of a down-on-her-luck woman (not lady) who lugs around bags that contain her life's possessions in a shopping cart. That IS NOT me!! I don't walk around with a shopping cart!
I am a fun, witty, self-depricating Canadian who likes to recycle. That's all. I like to recycle. I especially like to recycle cute shopping bags. Does THAT make me a 'Bag Lady' or a "Frugalista"? My money is on the latter.
Case in point. My dearly beloved purchased these lovely book-looking cases to carry our Mac laptops in.
I should have clued in that these were not bargain basement accessories when they came with this bag to cover the case while in transit.
Isn't that a great little bag? I could put my shoes in there, or my lunch, or my crochet project. Maybe a book or two, even. I could take it to the beach and not have to carry a purse! I could take it to the produce store and save a plastic bag from an eternity in a landfill (or something like that). Oh, wouldn't this be perfect on a road trip to carry my 'activities'. The uses for this durable and cute bag are endless.
So you tell me..."Bag Lady" or "Frugalista"?
