Quiz: What Bag Should You Buy?

Answer a few questions about your likes and dislikes, and get matched with your perfect purse, backpack or messenger bag

It's probably the most important thing to buy before you go back to school. No, not new clothes or supplies (although you obviously need to get those too). What good are new jeans or fresh binders if you can't accessorize and organize them with the perfect bag?

Before you head to the mall, just remember: they all look cute in the window. And on the rack. And at the cashier. Before you know it, you're back at home with six brand-new bags. And while they all look adorable on you, your wallet isn't too happy with your "Oh, I'll use them all enough times to get my money's worth" excuse.

We all know that's not going to happen. Sure, they look good the first time you take them out in public. But the more you look at them and try them on, you soon realize you don't actually like any of the bags you bought. So you just stash them in your closet and never use them. And then you go back to the mall and start the vicious cycle all over again.

So true, right? And now that you read it on the screen, you're smacked in the face by the realization you've been wasting time and money on bags that just didn't fit you in the first place. Well, we're here to put an end to that cycle. You can finally match your "purse-onality" by taking this quiz to customize your preferences and find the perfect bag.

So don't be a bag lady (we mean that in the nicest way possible), and stop making rash purchases. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to find that one purse you absolutely love.
