I have a Cabas Mezzo on it's way to me, so I'm already thinking of ways to protect the vachetta bottom. My main concern is in my car---I have an SUV, two kids and a DH. When we all ride together I'm often the one driving, so where do I put my bag? My DH will not want to hold my big ole bag for me. Even though I keep my car very clean I don't want to put my bag on the floor. So.........any suggestions? What do you all do with your bags when you have a full car load??
