After my chiropractor appointment we were on our way to the craziness that is Wal Mart. *Side note: I recently started going to the chiropractor and good Lord what have I been missing?! I've had lower back pain since I was a teenager so this new discovery has been wonderful.
I digress...Obviously we didn't go straight to the grocery side of the store when we arrived. Who goes to Wal Mart and doesn't scope out all the new goodies. Am I right?! Wait, am I the only one who's a sucker for low priced, sometimes poorly made, goodies? Eh, c'est la vie. (Does anyone else sing that song by B*Witched when they hear that phrase?! I'm looking at you Lauren Carter!)
I didn't go all over the store, but I did happen to stop in the accessories section. I'm not gonna lie, y'all. I was kind of impressed with some of their options. This was my favorite.
I love the length of this bag. I'm wearing it as a cross-body purse in this picture, but you could easily shorten it to be over the shoulder. I'm really digging the color, too. I feel like it would transition from summer to fall pretty well. I didn't get a picture of the opening, and I'm bummed because the opening isn't as big as I would like for it to be, but I could work with it. Plus, the flap is a nice extra pocket for whatever you might need, and there's a zipper pocket on the back for your phone. It came in quite a few colors including this delicious green.
Now that we have multiple children, I have decided that ditching the conventional diaper bag for a backpack is the only way I can function. I need free hands and to not worry about something falling off my shoulder when I'm chasing these hooligans around. Right now I have a Vera Bradley bag that I got as a Christmas present a few years ago, but I think its time to move on. I'm not so sure how long some of these would last, but I liked the options Wal Mart is putting out for back to school. I won't even touch on the fact that I feel like its a little too early for B2S merchandise to be out, but hey, Hobby Lobby already has Christmas supplies out so I guess WM is behind.
The bags on the left are price pointed at $9.88, and that is why I'm hesitant about their quality. I'm loving the color choices though. A few rows down I did find that they have some higher priced backpacks ($18.88) that are super cute as well. I believe the fabric on the bottom of the lower priced bags is thinner therefore not as good in quality. There was a black pleather bag that I really liked, and I love this cute navy/gray polka dot option. I love me some polka dots!
The last purse/bag/trash holder that I found and almost bought was this little weathered gray number.
It is a great size, really soft, and ONLY $7!! Clearance...gotta love it!
I won't bore you with much more I promise. Wanted to show you guys that WM is trying to up their crafting game. They had this end cap set up, and I was impressed again with their effort.
That's all for now, but I know you'll be waiting with bated breath so I'll keep this ol blog of mine updated with new treasures when I come across them. Until next time :)
