OVERSIZE bags are the in-thing. If you do not have one already, here is why you should consider buying one. Top on the list is that you can put many things in the bag, saving you the burden of lugging around many polythene bags.
A word of caution, do not go for sacks in the name of oversize bags! Oversize bags also allow you to express your individuality. For instance, if colour is your thing, now is the time to get that colourful bag.
Concerned that with a big bag, it will take you ages to find whatever you stored there? Solve this problem by putting your money in a wallet, your make-up in a toilet bag and your coins in a coin bag then drop all of them in.
Now that youâ€™re convinced that you need a big bag, hereâ€™s how to buy a good one. Consider the price; the lower the price, the poorer quality they are. However, watch against poor quality bags whose prices have been inflated. Poor quality bags cannot even serve the purpose of carrying a lot of luggage, because they get spoilt very quickly.
Secondly, scrutinise the material used and how heavy it is. Poor quality bags have a very thin material or weak straps.
