Handbags and Purses and totes, Oh My

I have a weekend tote, complete with diapers, preggie pops, and a smaller handbag inside of it for the cell, pda, and wallet. I grab just the inside bag for running in a coffee shop with a friend, but if Ander is with me, the whole bag comes inside (due to the diapers). But neither bag is really appropriate for work. And nothing I own is appropriate for a wedding, although usually, for formal occasions, I just hand Alan my id and cell phone for his pockets. I think that drives him crazy, though (not that he complains).

I just read an MSN article, though, that says a lady needs three bags - a casual weekend bag (essentially, what I am using now), a structured work bag, and a dressy bag. I'll skip dressy, but perhaps I'm looking crappy by not using my structured work bag? I own one; it's not like I have to go out and buy something. It's really nice. It's red patent leather and perfect for court and meetings. I'm just too lazy to transfer stuff (as easy as it is, since my small handbag could just transfer). Maybe I need to start so i look more professional.

is there anything you have were your hand bag might just fit into the purse? or have a wallet that goes into the purse and then just transfer the other stuff? Being a woman is hard! HEHEHE

I've tried to have just one big bag, with a smaller handbag (purse) to go inside it. The trouble is, my smaller bag gets too full and heavy.

I have solved the problem of having to take a handbag (purse) and a shopping bag, though. I've got this wonderful slouch bag that is lovely and soft to carry but that will take a book and some shopping as well as my purse (wallet) and mobile phone etc. You can see it here: http://www.creativecounselling.org.uk/bag.html

PS beside the picture of my bag is a picture of what the English mean by a "purse".
