Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a multi-functional carrying bag having multiple storage compartments for storing of monetary items, and various personal accessories and articles, such as eyeglasses, a cell phone, credit cards, a wallet, a mirror, a date planner, a key chain, a pen holder, coins and paper currency, a pager, a flashlight and the like.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Carrying bags, tote bags, activity bags, utility bags and the like are well known in the art and are continually being changed, modified and adapted to meet the changing needs of users. Such carrying bags are used daily by individuals traveling to school, work, office, beaches, parks, vacations, business trips, etc., taking along various accessories, personal articles and toiletries, out of necessity, for convenience, or for comfort, in order to have these necessary items for travel. Keeping them organized can be a nuisance but a necessity for “peace of mind”, in order for the user to know where the essential articles are being stored. Thus, the journey itself is often made unpleasant by the task of transporting disorganized, different sized, multiple articles, which are not stored within a predetermined storage compartment of the carrying bag.

There remains a need for a multi-functional carrying bag having multiple storage compartments for storing and holding the necessary personal articles and accessories the user needs when traveling. Further, it would be desirable to have a carrying bag with multiple pockets and storage areas shaped for holding specific articles and accessories of different sizes in a secure manner and that allows ease of accessibility.
