How can I carry a lot of stuff around without overtiring myself?

Purse strategies

Heavy purses can be responsible for a lot of aching when you go out. Try to get used to a small lightweight purse and to carry only the necessities - wallet, keys, a comb, your checkbook. A heavy purse is pulling your whole body off balance and is one reason you may find shopping and other outings so exhausting.

I use the cross body purses. This seems to help distribute the weight and also keeps my hands free to hold onto things.
