Maybe it’s just us, but since the pandemic started, it seems like we carry a whole lot more stuff (on top of all our usual stuff): a back-up mask, a bottle or two of hand sanitizer, some sanitizing wipes, a pair of gloves, maybe even a face shield. Because of all these extra things, our once-sufficient pre-pandemic purses are no longer enough. Perhaps it’s time to upgrade to our favorite (and currently on sale) carry-it-all tote? For Madewell’s early Black Friday sale, you can snag their beloved Transport Tote for 30 percent off, which we think is a pretty great deal. Not only is it sturdy enough to stuff in all your stuff into, but the leather looks positively luxe. And if this brown hue doesn’t suit your fancy, it comes in classic black and a delightful powder blue, too.
