It’s been a while since our last post.  Let’s talk about a subject near and dear to my personal experiences with the actual weight and size of purses and totes today.

While on a recent winter trip down south to a warm climate, I noticed Denise’s tote was really what I call heavy.  It not only has all her stuff she thinks she’ll need during the day, she’ll also carry my stuff.  I wouldn’t want to carry it all of the time.

It reminds me of when I was still working.  Being a service technician I always carried a heavy overloaded tool bag.  I regularly experienced hand and arm pain (arthritis now).  I would regularly go for physical therapy and chiropractic care.

Once, I tried using a shoulder strap to ease the hand/arm pain.  That caused a shoulder/neck condition that lasted for many months.  I gave that strap away.

The point is this, totes and purses  are getting bigger and they hold more stuff which makes them heavier and heavier.  It doesn’t take a medical professional to say, lighten up the load and save your body (i.e. neck, shoulders, spine, arms, hands, hips, knees, etc.)

Visit soon for our new line of concealed carry line of totes, satchels, and more.

Have a great day and lighten up!

Jim and Denise
