I did it! On Saturday I managed to spend all my lotto winnings.
I found a bag that sits up decently (enough) on it’s own, has great handles, dividers that will double as laptop protectors, good zips & pockets.
Loving this bag. It has two magnetic pockets at the back and front – perfect for laptop and/or iPad to be on their own for protection. The middle part (where the sunglasses case is in the picture above) zips up. It’s a two-strap bag, which isn’t usually me, but I love the braided handles to spread out the weight of the bag. Nothing worse than a heavy bag when the handles dig into your shoulder and/or bra strap.
It was originally $74.99, but Strandbags have 25% off for mothers day, which took it down to $56.24. So, after you take away my $42.15 lotto win, the bag cost me $14.09 (or c$21 if you include the $7ish I spent on the lotto ticket)!! My kinda bargain.
This is the bag if you want to check it out for yourself. The only thing I’d like to change so far is to have it be real leather. But leather is out of my budget! I was tossing up between this and the black one, which had subtle but very nice contrasting stitching. I chose the colour just to be bright though.
What do you like in a bag? Are you as picky as me?
