Bag shopping

It's been a while (5 years, about) since I made a spreadsheet to assist my bag shopping. So when I got the urge to buy a colorful summer tote, a brief survey of the market told me that there was too much information just to make a decision. I needed to bust out the spreadsheet.

Now, I know science now tells us that too many choices are bad for your mental acuity. (OK I just learned that might be true yesterday.) But I enjoy it, like so many things that are bad for you.

So, without further ado, bag enthusiasts, please go forth and check out my current front-runners in the competition to be my 2008 summer bag. Sadly, I fear this particular bag survey will be a little gendered as I don't know many dudes who carry totes, for whatever reason. And of course if you have a suggestion that's not on my list, please mention it.

I *did*. I was very impressed. I had actually looked a bit on Etsy for custom bags but it would appear that no one can make them with zip tops. I've also thought about making my own bag! But I just don't have time.

People who can't put in zippers on a tote are just lazy. I keep thinking about selling stuff on Etsy, but they are just so glutted with that kind of thing... still, if they're not willing to do custom stuff maybe I should.

Send me a list of what colors/patterns/fabrics you like? I enjoy making stuff.

So many choices! Brain meltdown! I will have to think on this.

I bet you could outclass a majority of the Etsy sellers.
