I tried to imagine carrying a non-H bag on the crook of my elbow all day to see what it would be like to carry a birkin in the future. Did pretty well all day, except for grocery shoppping! When I leaned over to grab produce to put in plastic bags, my bag bumped into wet produce. When I leaned over to put the groceries on the checkout belt, my bag just got in the way so I had to do empty the cart one-handed. Finally, when I put the grocery bags in the trunk, the bag leaned on my dirty car bumper. Pretty frustrating. Wondering who out there actually goes grocery shopping with their birkin. Honestly!
