I’m not particularly fond of lugging around a purse everywhere I go, but it’s a necessary evil of being a woman. Over time I’ve found my purses continue to get larger and larger, the end result being a purse the size of a piece of carry on luggage.

But perhaps even more telling is what they keep in a storage unit. No matter the appearance, this is no haphazard pile of crap: these are items carefully chosen for long-term safekeeping.
