As I’ve mentioned before, I have a wee bit of an obsession with What’s on your home screen? posts. And I feel the same about the What’s in your bag? genre. In particular, I’m a huge fan of the Timbuk2 What’s in your bag? site. I recently switched to using a Timbuk2 messenger bag and thought I would share what’s in my bag for this week’s blog prompt.
First, the bag — it’s their limited edition Tour de France classic messenger. I know almost nothing about the Tour de France, but the cheery red polka dots won me over:
Seriously, doesn’t that just make you smile? I have had more compliments on this bag from random folks in airports than any other. I ordered the small size as I find the larger sizes just too big. The small is large enough to comfortably fit my MacBook Air and even the MacBook Pro (should I feel like lugging it around).
In addition to the laptop, I can also comfortably fit all of this:
What is all that? Folders for projects / daily work (the paperless office is still just a dream!), my Moleskines (as much as I love my tech, I’m old school about some things, as I’ve noted here before), iPad mini (which I still love), a couple of books (which ones vary depending on current projects), pens, power brick, and my bag of tech accessories. If I’m traveling, there will probably also be a camera and Kindle.
What’s in YOUR bag? Let us know in the comments.
