I like purses. Okay, not just like, I LOVE purses. All sorts of purses, but lately, my biggest purse problem has been finding a one that works for EVERY situation. I have a three year old, which means that he is a bit too big for the entire diaper bag scenario and not quite to the point where I get to stop lugging around a change of clothes and snacks everywhere we go.  Plus in the amazing world of couponing; finding a purse that I can take to the store and have my binders (yes, plural!) with me and not have a ton of bags to carry was a necessity too. My Audrey bag from Gigi Hill Bags solved my problem! I LOVE my Audrey! :) She is the newest member of our family and she has become my best friend! Seriously!

Audrey is a bit large (17-1/2”W x 13”H x 6”D) for what you think when you hear purse, but I LOVE HER! And in all honesty she is only a bit bigger than my previous purse, so the size isn’t too much for me at all.  She is the PERFECT everything bag! As soon as my new Audrey bag arrived I quickly moved everything from my old purse, and to my surprise EVERYTHING from my old bag fit into the Signature Pocket Design that come in EVERY GiGi Hill bag. Leaving the entire space inside the purse for me to carry all those extras that seem to pop up throughout the day. These Signature Pockets are AMAZING!!!! I am not just talking about one or two pockets to throw things into either, I mean each and every side of your GiGi Hill Bag is full of pockets! Plus with the nice key fob there is a handy place for me to quickly find my keys when I need them. Great for a forgetful mom like myself.

I am not a photographer by any means, but these pockets are so amazing, I HAD to show you!

I now have all my typical purse items neatly organized into the pockets, but I also have enough room to put my binders in to go shopping, pack some clothes and snacks for the kids, and space for just about everything else that pops up while not having to worry something is going to get lost in the bottom. The best part is how completely smart they are, they are attractive, (tons of different fabrics to choose from) functional (pocket design) and completely cleanable fabric inside and out to just wipe up spills!!!

Now Audrey has a special place in my heart because of just how amazingly awesome she is, for me and my life. I am cheap (yes, I know frugal sounds better, but lets call it like it is), I hate spending money on anything and Audrey was a bit on the expensive side for a bag (for me, the tightwad). But after using her for a few weeks I have been converted and definitely realized that she is worth every penny! But for those of you that are frugal (cheap) like me, there are bags that range from $25 and up so there is one that will fit anyone’s budget.

Audrey is now a member of the family after all, so I love to talk about her, but there is a huge selection that GiGi Hill Bags have to offer. Beth and I spent WAY too much time on their website looking at all the amazing purses and bags that they have, and trust me, there is not only a bag that will fit your budget there is a bag that will fit their lifestyle too!

You can not only order your own bag from the  GiGi Hill site, but you can also become a a Gigi Hill Stylist and start your own business in your free time to generate some extra income for your family.

Now my Audrey isn’t the bag we are featuring in our giveaway, I just love to talk about her! The giveaway is featuring the Zipped Brigitte, which is equally great as the PERFECT bag for overnight/weekend trips. If you don’t win this great Gigi Hill bag there is still a chance for you to win!  You can enter to win a great tote, bag or accessory from their new Passport Collection by “Liking” their Facebook Fan Page and participating in their fun contest.

Gigi Hill is listed under Gifts for Her & Jewelry & Accessories in the Season of Giving Holiday Gift Guide.

About Gigi Hill: The inspiration behind Gigi Hill can be traced back to a wonderful piece of oilcloth from France that a mother brought her daughter. From that very piece of oilcloth, an idea was born—to design and sell stylish, functional bags. Gabrielle DeSantis-Cummings and Monica Hillman both desired to have a high-quality, stylish bag that offered the functionality necessary in today’s fast-paced world. So they decided to join forces and create Gigi Hill.

Gigi Hill has great gifts for: Stylish moms, women, and girls who have stuff to carry!

7 Becky Lee December 10, 2011 at 1:46 AM

I have to keep myself & my grandmother. Since she is 99 it is like having to pack for a baby. I have to make sure I have extra depends & a change of clothes. I need a bag that will hold all my stuff plus Grandma’s & with it being winter in Northern Indiana, I need a bag with straps that will fit easily over my parka.

8 Heather December 10, 2011 at 7:59 AM

I have to keep five people organized, which sounds kinds crazy when you say it out loud. My six year old is very helpful at remembering things though.

9 Allison December 10, 2011 at 8:23 AM

It’s just me and my boyfriend, but he’s pretty hopeless on his own :-)

10 Jennifer Fyffe December 10, 2011 at 10:04 AM

So cute! With two 3-yr olds that have also grown out of a diaper bag, I could sure use it!

12 Alison Krauss December 10, 2011 at 1:53 PM

We’re at 3 now with one more to join us shortly. This would be a very stylish solution to combine my purse & diaper bag so I’m not carrying around two bags. :)

13 drew carson December 10, 2011 at 2:16 PM

Some days it feels like the whole world!! I have 3 kids under 6 plus a hubbie. I work full time, homeschool and teach at a coop. Plus, help with mom and mother-in-laws health issues. If you have a bag on wheels that would be great!!!

18 Shawnda Newberry December 10, 2011 at 9:19 PM

In my family I only have to keep track of myself and my daughter, HOWEVER, I’m the PTO treasurer at my daughter’s school and this bag would be PERFECT for me to carry my paperwork in when I’m back and forth to the school and meetings! As well it would work perfect for weekends away with my boyfriend when he returns from Afghanistan!! :)

19 jennifer December 10, 2011 at 9:39 PM
