Sooooo...last Friday I had to go a WHOLE DAY with no handbag...and I survived!! It was strange not having any of my babies with me, although I had an old rucksack with everything I needed thrown into it that I didn't mind leaving at the side of the rides, so I wasn't completely bagless. And I learned two important things about rucksacks: 1. Because it was much bigger than my handbags I ended up carrying my brother's jumper, waterproof, drink etc around all day as well as my own 2. Every time I needed anything out of it I had to root around for five minutes before I could find it! Last week several tPFers suggested taking a small messenger style bag or wristlet... http://forum.purseblog.com/handbags-and-purses/a-whole-day-out-with-no-bag-142317.html In case anyone is thinking of taking one to a theme park, at Alton Towers they wouldn't let you take ANYTHING on the rides with you. AT ALL! If you had slip-on shoes you even had to take those off on some rides!!!
