There was a discussion in another thread about returning a bag because it's too small. The subject of that one was a Sophia, which is my favorite style, I have a bunch of them. I find her deceptively roomy.

So this is what I carry in my Sophia on a normal day:

Wow! I'm getting my small navy python in a few days and was thinking she might be too small... I think you carry more than I used to carry in my Parker hobo when I used it. :giggles:

I had a small pleated sophia that I returned (I prefer the large sophia) because I just couldn't get all my things in. I should take lessons from you because I am amazed at how much you can put in a small sophia!!! It is absolutely amazing!! Maybe I should try again. :smile:

This is exactly what I did and now I am thinking I should try again too! I bet I needed an organizer!

I have the small pleated Sophia in Slate and she surprisingly holds a lot.

I am a master at packing my little, sateen Groovy with all the essentials when I want to carry a smaller bag; but in general I prefer a larger bag that is half-full - because it is easier to find stuff. I don't like taking out the stuff on top of the bag to get to the stuff on the bottom, JMO!

So what do you carry in your little bag?

I'm obviously doing something wrong.

But--My divide and conquer just shipped.

Part of my problem is I have to carry Rx sunglasses and eyeglasses, and the cases take up room. And i aslo like to look in and just find what i need instead of digging around, so i dont pack it to capacity. The D&C should help with that, right?

This is where the organizer comes in way handy - I don't like doing that either. The only things in the center part of my organizer are my wallet, my makeup case, and my glasses case. Everything else is in a pocket either in the organizer or in the slip pocket/interior pocket of the bag itself. In my bag slip pockets are my ID badge for work (because then I don't have to take it out to access the building, the keypad is sensitive enough to pick it up through my bag) and my cell phone. In the interior zip pocket are my purse hook, my business card holder, and my mints. Everything else goes in pockets in the organizer. Finding everything is a snap.

What kind of purse hook do you use? I assume it's so you don't ever have to place your bag on the ground?

I agree with Jenna_Behr. A purse organizer is super handy. I love knowing exactly where everything is, and not having to dig through a jumbled up mess to find whatever I'm looking for. I'm carrying my small Marielle today, which to me isn't exactly small. I'll try to remember to take a pic next time I'm carrying one of my small Sophias. I'm still amazing at how much she can hold too. I think the purse organizer has a lot to do with how much she holds.

The organizer will definitely help with that - what I do with my glasses is just carry one case & swap them out, because I'm always wearing one pair. So when I'm wearing my regular glasses, my sunglasses are in the case, and when I need my sunglasses, I put the regular ones in the case.

The other option would be to get something like this

http://www.amazon.com/Double-Leathe...3825095&sr=8-16&keywords=double+eyeglass+case

Which is a double-eyglass case, that might help with taking up room.
