For those of us that travel with purses, sometimes we feel like we're carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders...literally.
So, how can you lighten the load and still have room for what you need when traveling?
First, start with the right purse. Think about these before you decide which purse to buy...
Some purses weigh a couple of pounds or more before you put anything in them. Look at lightweight travel purses, made specifically for traveling. Think about a cross-body purse that can also be carried. Maybe you need one with a panel that slips over your suitcase handle or one that folds down flat when you're not using it. Do you need RFID blocking or a strap with a cable in it so it can't be cut? What about a passport pocket or warranty?
Do you need one large enough to carry a camera or kid stuff?
Next...how to keep it from getting heavier.
