I’ve been doing a lot of research on the perfect work bag that could carry my stationary and my 15″ MacBook. I sometimes carry my iPad along with my laptop so my work bag gets a little heavy.
I was in search for something that is durable, nice and affordable. Affordable because I usually put a lot of wear and tear on all my bags so paying more won’t make that much of a difference.
Of course, I came across the Dagne Dover. I was in love. Added it to my Christmas list— but wasn’t ready to drop $400+ on something that would only last me a year or two. My sister recommended Tumi. She currently owns one and carries her laptop + books for medical school in that bag. She loves it. But again, I personally wasn’t ready to spend over $500 on a work bag.
Finally, I was shopping after Thanksgiving and I found the perfect bag at Aldo. YES– the shoe store. Guys, this bag is perfect! And…wait for it.. it’s only $70!! I currently have the following inside of it:
- 15″ MacBook
- 3 novels
- 2 notepads
- Pencil bag
- 1 sticky-note pad
- 2 folders
- 3 letters (that I forgot to mail out, oops)
Snag you a work bag, woman! You won’t regret it.
