The eternal question: Why do I need to carry around a big, heavy purse when guys manage to walk around with a few things in their pockets? The answer is I don't. I could definitely stand to pare down to, say, a little crossbody bag. This is a hand bag just big enough for a phone, wallet, keys, and lipstick, with a long strap you wear crosswise over your body. It's perfect for day, night, and travel. And I've picked out the perfect one! If only it didn't cost $1,600. Why does such a tiny bag cost so much?!?
Okay, back to Earth. Surely there's a crossbody bag in my price range? Realistically, that's around $5, but I don't think I'm going to find anything at that price outside the toy department. Instead, here are 8 crossbody purses under $50 that will definitely fit the bill.
