Last week I wrote of my quest to lighten my bag. This week I decided to post an update.
I think I’ve had a breakthrough!
Meet katom^. He’s been working ok since I brought him home Monday afternoon, EXCEPT that 7 of my library books had their hold requests fulfilled over the past 2 days. Few were less than 400 pages. He was the last one available at C21 at a nice discount. I’m not so keen on this colour but I’ll deal. This is the first new bag I’ve brought home since the bag last spring (which I still love but tend to overfill). I know the picture is quite poor, but the fabric refused to be photographed. For the colour, it seems to be a very shy bag. It’s a flap body bag and really won’t hold much more than I really need. The selling point for me was an open back pocket which will allow for me to put in a letter sized folder without drastically changing how the bag carries. I like that it sits flat against my body.
Over a year ago I posted what I carry in my bag. I thought I’d provide an update to that as well. It’s surprisingly similar except I’m actively reevaluating all of it right now. Here is the comparison of very-old to new. Click through to flickr to see notes describing everything. I think the biggest change is the swap of a book for knitting and the consolidation of the moleskines for the a5 filo.
The pain in my neck has mostly lessened. Some more stress was dissipated. Yay!
Edit: Is this photo any better?
