OK time is counting down.......I am leaving tomorrow for Vegas with my family and am trying to decide how to pack PJ (kindle). I bought the BB travel bag a few weeks ago specifically for this trip.

Now today I am not so sure if this one bag will do....or should I bring a purse to put the BB bag in.  The whole idea of me buying the travel bag was to 1) be able to carry around PJ 2)not to always lug a big purse around.  It seems with the travel bag I can pack my kindle, my small wallet (in the same area as the kindle) and my iphone and camera (not in its case).  I think my problem is that I never do small, I always have a huge purse that holds the world. Any help would be appreciated!!

If it's not big enough, then it's not big enough. Take another, larger bag with you as well. If you find you don't need it, then just stuff it in your suitcase.

I use my travel bag pretty much only when I take my dogs to visit their buddies across the street so I can hold both leashes at the same time. Otherwise it's not big enough to hold all of my things, particularly my large set of car keys that has many, many keys on it.

If you are like me (don't know, just saying  :D), then the idea of a small bag is wonderful...it's just that, when it comes right down to it, when I use a small purse, it's the one time I need something that I would have carried if I'd had my large purse with me...sigh....it's so true for me that, the one time I need it, is the time I don't have it... ::)

If are going to be in Vegas on friday Laurell K Hamilton is going to have a signing...if you are a fan of her writing.

You also want to be careful in Vegas. There are pick pockets about. A family friend got pick pocketed a couple weeks ago on a fight night.

No wallets in the back pocket. If you going to use a purse, make sure its closes all the way and keep it close always (sometimes people get pickpocketed while they are checking out the sights.) If you are takin money from the casino atm machines, someone might be watching you and target you.

I carried just my BB travel bag on a trip back in April.  I actually had brought along a full purse & never ended up using it!  If you can carry what you need in in, then do it.

If not--for both airports & flights, once we were through security I used a regular side zip BB Kindle bag threaded through my belt loops.  This kept the Kindle on me at all times, but left my hands free to handle other things.  My super slim wallet and the boarding pass both went in with the Kindle, everything else stayed in my carry-on.  When I want to use a very small purse, I've been doing the same thing.

thanks for the great advice! Yes I want to make sure I DON't get pickpocketed!

How great about Laurell K Hamilton! I haven't read any of her books yet, but they are already on my kindle.
