I left for a two-day trip yesterday with no less than eight bags. Eight. There was the handbag. Small pouches for within the handbag for stuff like lip balm, gum, months old subway tickets, you know, the kind of things you really need to be within arm’s reach at all times. A bag for my camera. A suitcase. A wash bag. Individual cotton bags for shoes. The only thing that didn’t have a proper bag was my notebook. Sure, it has a sleeve for protection. But either I stuff it into the already too full handbag, put it in the suitcase or even carry it in a canvas shopping bag. This has to stop. It’s a nice computer, it deserves a nice bag.
Only problem is: So far, I’ve found very few nice notebook bags out there. They either look like you could take them on an expedition to the North Pole, where they’d protect the computer from a potential attack by polar bears. Or they look absolutely beautiful, but cost as much an expedition to the North Pole.
Maybe you can help me out. Where can I find a simple, functional, preferably uni-coloured and not too expensive bag for my notebook?
