When you're heading out to run a quick errand, you don't need to lug the whole house with you.

That said, you will still need a tiny bag to keep them all together; definitely doesn't hurt that the micro bag has taken over the trends. We round up the tiniest, cutest, and yep, still functional, mini bags to add to your rotation.
