The more time I spent driving, the more I realized that what really drove me crazy wasn't traffic, bad drivers or even screaming kids. It was "Bag Dump." Watching helplessly as the contents of my purse spilled onto the floor whenever I turned or applied the brakes left me frustrated and annoyed. But it wasn't just my purse that cascaded off the seat. The same thing happened with takeout food, grocery bags with egg cartons, my laptop bag, important papers, school projects the list never ended. It was all I could do not to lose it! My sympathetic friends shared countless horror stories of their own toppled bags. It was then that I began to understand how universally vexing this problem was so I set out to solve it and help us all reclaim our sanity. There weren't any viable options: car hooks secured the bag so high on the seat that access was too limited. The center console was never big enough for my bag, and if I put it on the floor it was too far out of reach. I made wild promises to myself to use the passenger seat belt to secure my bag, then never followed through. Like so many women, I often needed to get into my bag while driving, so putting it in the trunk or back seat wouldn't work. I never closed my bag, leaving no obvious safeguard against the inevitable slide, flip and dump. I began to experiment with ways of connecting the handle of my purse to the passenger seat headrest, even visiting Army/Navy surplus stores on a mission to find different buckles and clips.
