Hazards of Heavy Purses

ACA’s handbag tips were featured in an MSN.com article about the dangers of carrying a heavily stuffed purse. ACA recommends that one’s bag weigh no more than 10 percent of one’s body weight. The article suggests that women alternate which shoulder they carry the bag on from day to day, and consider splitting their items between two bags (one for each arm), which will pain-proof the load by distributing it more evenly.
