I feel like I'm posting some secret confession but just HAD to post this based on the amount of, um, comments about the Erol Tote bag which often shows up during the HH sales. I snagged a large Erol Tote in green during one of the sales. I think I paid $35 for it. TBH, I thought that I'd either end up giving it away as a teacher's gift or using it for craft storage. Last week, I ended up packing it up to use to take my 3 kids someplace and, well, I've been using it daily ever since (much to my surprise). I really love all of the pockets and how much this bag can hold and still be well organized. The straps are really too short to put over my shoulder, so I usually end up hand carrying the bag or putting it over my forearm but, in some ways, this is probably saving my back/shoulders as I tend to end up carrying too much in my bag and then hurting my back. (I had an Un Apres Midi Chien Large Passy that I had to sell for that very reason). It doesn't close very well, so I usually just use it as an open tote. The fabric is more Spring/Summer but as it hasn't turned terribly cold yet here, I'm still comfortable carrying it. So, that's my "confession." LOL. I like it so much that if one pops up in blue, at the right price, I'll probably jump on it.
