Positive By-Product of Helping Friends Declutter

After dropping off a friend's bags of decluttered clothes and household goods at the local thrift store, I did my usual scan for a better tote bag for the summer.  What was that I saw behind a bunch of other handbags--could it be the perfect tote bag for me???

Oh, yes!  The right size, lots of pockets and even one with a zipper and no thrift store perfumey scent.  I can see why it probably wasn't a big seller when new--the weird closures on the sides are very impractical--but I'll keep it open anyway. 

Later, I looked up other totes by this designer on her website and they are going for a hefty price.  My price???  $12.60!  Score!
