    It's really bad when they're everywhere you look! I keep telling myself "Well..I'll have a bag for every scenario!".

    I can only imagine.

    Sometimes I go through these ascetic phases when I tell myself, "I should have just one bag!" (Or one black T-shirt, or what have you.) Then I come to my senses and ask what sort of fun that would be.

    I think I pretty much listed it everything I'd like to carry in a post a week or so ago. Hopefully, this will link to it...

    Confusion Reigns! Help clear the cobwebs before the dough goes elsewhere...

    I'm considering a smaller bag - maybe a Imago or Ristretto for iPad - for my "I don't feel like carrying much weight or bulk" days. Days when I can get by with my 8.5x11" portfolio, an iPad, iPhone, headphones, wallet, checkbook, multi-tool, some pens and pencils, and a point-n-shoot camera. This bag would probably go on my Christmas Wish List.

    I'm also considering a larger bag - leaning toward ID or Cadet - for my "I need it all" days; this one I would purchase for myself, since it's more expensive. It would be for days when I need to take my 15.4" MacBook Pro and/or a lot of files and notebooks in addition to all of the stuff listed above.

    I'm good at selecting and buying items for other people, but I really dislike and am lousy at making purchasing decisions for myself. Especially when patronizing a site like yours, when there are so many wonderful products and many have features I can see being really useful.

    Ah, the kind of job where you get paid and spend all you money where you made it? Or, you try not too! I'd have a rough time resisting...you must be made of stronger stuff.

    This is a problem my colleague is having. I think it's all compounded by his desire to have ONE thing that works really well. We've been discussing his predicament regarding the ID/Cadet dilemma, and I'm still waiting on the final verdict.

    If it's any help, I carry my (non-TB, highly stupid) backpack when I need my MBP, files, books, etc. and carry my MCB on days when I just need my (paper) notebook, iPad, lunch, and essentials. It's a good system for me, and really beats carrying my whole backpack when all I am bringing is my lunch and a pen.
