A bag is a woman’s best friend. You are never without it. As you would choose a friend, it’s important to choose a bag that is reliable and that will last you far into the future. Here are four bags every woman should have in their closet. Thanks to Groupon Coupons, you can stock up on all four and still make big savings. You don’t have to spend any money upfront to use them. Neimanmarcus has a wide selection of good looking bags to serve you far into the future.

  1. Cross-body Bag

The cross-body bag is perfect when you want to use your hands without having to worry about the safety of your bag and its contents. The reason why you can wear it across your body is because it has a long strap. Your hands are free to carry things, and to eat and drink while walking, for example. You won’t lose sight of your bag at any time and it can’t easily be snatched from you in the street. It comes in lots of shapes and sizes and you can have your pick at Neimanmarcus.

  1. Clutch Bag

These bags are particularly suitable for either a day or evening occasion when you are going somewhere by car and only need a few essential items in your bag like identification, cell phone and credit card. They come in a variety of colors and shapes, and many are simple but charming. Be sure to save some coupons for one of these. In shape they can be round, square or rectangular. If they do come with a handle, it can be tucked away or folded.

  1. All-in-One Bag

This kind of bag can double up as gym, shopping or college bag. You would stuff it with your laptop, files, magazines, books and other bulky items you need to have at your disposal all the time. They usually have two straps and are slung over one shoulder, but to avoid shoulder strain, swop them from one shoulder to the other regularly.

  1. Compartment Bag

This is usually a roomy bag whose interior has a series of compartments and zips to make it easier for you to find what you want at the click of a finger. People often have problems locating their pens, keys or cell phone at crucial moments.

I truly do believe the scientists that say that global warming is real. Each summer seems to get hotter and hotter. Trying to stay cool without running up the electric bill is a real challenge! I am not a big fan of wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts because my pets scratch me up with all of their loving! But I am finding myself wearing these types of clothes now just to try to passing out from heat exhaustion!

I caught my mother off-guard today when I asked her this question: “Do they have the 4th of July in England?” She looked at me with a confused expression on her face, then replied “no.” I laughed at her and told her “Of course they do, Mom! They just don’t celebrate it like us Americans do!”

I don’t usually get the better of her…… That was funny!
