For this week's edition of Things Around My House hosted by MSM I present this:

The Ameri Bag

I bought this last week when I was out of town with my daughter on our "girlfriend trip". I hate carrying a pocketbook and generally will just carry my vera bradley key/coin purse combo thing and my cell phone. I've been looking for something sleek, simple and lightweight, however, so that I could put my phone and keys together where I would be hands free as I ran errands. This bag was the perfect solution for me. I was even able to put my camera in there (a bit tight-but it did fit). IT is made of some sort of water resistant (assumption) nylon/cotton type materials and is only ten inches by five or six inches with a long adjustable strap. (which can also be removed) I can throw the strap over my head/shoulder and be off-hands free to shop and look as I need to without carrying a bulky handbag.

Thanks for visiting my TIMHT entry!

This looks cool.

I've tried everything from fanny packs to backpacks to slings to messenger bags to suitcase size purses. .. I've yet to find something that is Just Right.

I want something small, but if it is too organized and crowded, I won't even try if I'm hurried; then it is worse than just throwing everything into a big hole of a bag. . .

Congrats on finding something that works for you!

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice! I was starting to carry really small purses, but I couldn't fit my brush in. I really like what my current (big) purse looks like, but I end up with a lot of stuff in it and it gets heavy! Your bag looks very usable.

I hear you MSM, I know I have looked lots of places trying to find the perfect bag. Mostly I dont like how bags hang on my shoulder, so will opt to have a bag that I carry in my hands. Then I end up not having hands available to shop. I've tried just carrying my keys, but then I have to hand them off to one of the kids to put in their pocket.

Susan, I hear you on the hairbrush too. I keep one in my car. Right now with this bag, I have my key/wallet combo thing, my cell, some burts bees, a few bandaids and a pen. That is the perfect amount of stuff for me. Anything else just gets in the way or I keep it in the car.

Thanks for looking :)
