I managed to salvage my broken-strapped purse after all. I found the strap of an old shoulder bag that clips onto my current purse (though it has a different color hardware) so now I can keep the one I have. Now that's recycling! I like how pocket-y and organize-y this one is, anyway.
Speaking of which--dangit, I forgot to put my recycling out again this morning. So now I have a giant overflowing milk-crate stack full of glass and plastic bottles, egg cartons, and soup cans in my kitchen. Lovely.
