Well, I'm kind of a "little purse in a tote bag" person; I want the ease of walking through stores and such with a small purse, but I also want the conveneince of having lots and lots of room for books and other things. I usually stick my small purse in my tote, pull it out when I get ready to get out of the car to shop and leave the bulky tote behind. If I'm going someplace where I know I'll have waiting time, like a doctor's appointment, I leave the small purse in the tote and carry the whole thing with me! LOL

My purse has to hold my stuff - keys, sunglasses, paperback book, wallet, phone, extra camera, Band-aids and first-aid spray, emery board, pen and small notebook, lipgloss, mints.

I don't like those suitcase-sized purses that were popular last summer/fall; women look like they are about to miss their flight; but neither do I care for a purse that can't at least hold wallet, keys and phone.

I don't like a huge purse, but it needs to be big enough to carry the necessities. No matter what size purse I carry, I tend to fill it up, so smaller is better.

My big sunglasses came with a case that could bury a canary! small purses don't work for me.
I keep a really nice little clutch styled wallet in my big bag, and for a quick trip into the store, all set...but when I travel, or need all those stupid shopping cards, etc, I carry in the larger one. Seems like my husband is always handing me something else to carry....

I have purses in all sizes. Currently I have a tivoli pm, le cherry speedy 25 and a galliera pm azur (all louis vuitton). I find that having different sizes allows me to better choose which purse I need that day. If im taking kids with me I will take a bigger purse so I can carry the extra stuff I need for them. If im going out to dinner with hubby I take the speedy or the tivoli pm. I am thinking about adding a neverfull mm but right now im content with my collection since I just added a sarah wallet in pomme lol..im on a ban .
