More old bags discarded

It must be that Back to School feeling. More old travelling bags thrown out. My old makeup bag was so shabby I'm ashamed to post a picture.
The replacement from Primark (blue and white striped) is good enough even for this incredibly swish hotel room in Madrid.  The top bag is also from Primark - for phone leads and charger. (Very organised).  Great cheap buys - why spend more?! Like the zebra zipper bag here.
