Have you ever arrived at a museum, a concert venue or a public building only to discover they don’t allow purses inside any bigger than your cellphone? I have, and more and more places are implementing “Clear Bag” policies to increase venue security and move guests through checkpoints faster. Even if you have a ticket, if you show up with a bag that doesn’t meet their requirements, your choices are to be turned away; hike back to your car or hotel and stash your bag, or throw your bag in the trash before entering.
So what’s a girl to do? Fret not. I have the answer.
