Lightening My Load: In Defense of the Wristlet

Though historically, I like to keep lots of things handy in my purse, lately I want something tiny enough to toss into my beach bag or the compartment under the seat of my scooter. So today, my handbag is shrinking.

This little wristlet seemed like the perfect solution and it was on super duper clearance at Kate Spade. ($60 instead of $125! Follow them on Twitter & Facebook-they run sales constantly!) I've pared down to a few essentials: credit cards, cell phone, a little cache of Advil & mints, my trusty Burt's cuticle cream & lip balm and my Don Draper shades (find 'em cheaper on ebay!)

Here's to simplicity! Have you lightened your load lately? What small changes made a big difference for you?

I love this post. I always feel this way on weekends - after schlepping my work tote all week, I can't wait to just grab my tiny wristlet and go!

Just curious - how do you manage grocery shopping with a wristlet? I love the minimal carrying, but sometimes I just need a free hand. It's such a small irritation I don't mind, but do you have this experience too?

ooh Jen- you are so right! The wristlet can be problematic when you are trying to pick things up and steer the cart at the same time. I am a trusting soul and I usually just stash mine in the child seat of the cart since it's not usually far from my grasp. What's your solution?

I have a cute wristlet that I slip into my purse to carry inside a store. They really are the best! ♥
