and Have A Sleepover.

Monday, June 1st, 2009

At some point, most of us will spend the night away from home.  If it’s for a business trip, a night at a girlfriend’s or a long weekend at a B&B, few of us will spend every single night in our own beds.  Could you just throw a change of clothes and toothbrush in a grocery bag?  Of course.  But that’s not what this is about, is it?

Almost all the stores where you can get a briefcase, you can also get overnight options.  Really basic duffel bags are inexpensive and look anywhere from simply put together to pretty classy.  However, my favorite option is a decorative tote.  Grocery stores are selling them as they go greener viagra tablets in india.  I’ve seen them at department stores, the dollar stores, made from recycled materials and made of recyclable materials.  They are one color, multi-colored, printed with kitties and printed with skulls.  Whatever your style, there’s something out there.

The other reason I like the tote over the duffel ~ aside from the fact that they are even more inexpensive than a basic duffel ~ is that they can be used whenever you need a little more space than just your purse or your hands.  When I am out with my youngest nephew and niece (both of whom are under the age of 7), my small clutch purse that I usually carry is woefully inadequate but my briefcase is very stuffy for my role of Favored Aunt.  So, the same bag I can throw my toiletries in to spend the night with them can double duty as carry-all when I take them out for the afternoon.  And two for the price of one?

That’s definitely a champagne life ~ on a beer budget!

Enjoy ~
