The Mega Purse

Are you everyone's go-to gal when it comes to having random items in your purse? While you may save the day once in a while, for the most part, an oversized tote may actually make you seem disorganized. "A large, cluttered purse full of wrappers, receipts and random objects is indicative of the chaos and disorder in that person's life," warns Heather Lambie, editor-in-chief of Your Home Editor, a professional organizing service.

Tote lightly: Choosing a functional larger bag doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style (or your shoulder). There are plenty of colorful and lightweight picks to choose from in these busy days of ours—even diaper bags and laptop cases can be chic!
