The Backpack: A Fashion Don't but an Organizational Do

Backpacks, purses, briefcases and satchels. All these are an essential way to carry any combination of personal and work items during your daily commute.

Keep in mind that when I say backpack I don’t necessarily mean a literal backpack. I’m sure we all have a bag that we use to get our things to school and or work so when I say “backpack” I simply mean the bag you carry to work or school.

Picking out your favourite bag ultimately depends on a combination of type, size and style.

First and foremost you need to figure out what type of backpacks would best suit your needs. Bags, like agendas, come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. A couple considerations based on style would be whether or not you want something with wheels, a large laptop bag, a backpack, shoulder bag or even just a small purse.

Size is also an important consideration in choosing which bag you’ll use to carry your things. It’s important to consider if the bag can hold your laptop, a notebook, of course your agenda and perhaps even your lunch.

It’s also an option to carry an additional lunch bag just depends how much you want to hold on to during your commute. Some lunch bags come with clips now that allow you to attach your lunch bag to your work bag - which is a smart alternative. This option also prevents your lunch from spilling all over your electronics.

Once choosing your work bag based on the above qualities you’re all set to start organizing!


  1. So true! Ever since I started university I began to buy large purses only. They say the bigger the purse the more you put in it and it is so true! However, my big purse allows me to carry my binder, laptop, make up bag and wallet, so I can't complain. Great post!

  2. Honestly, the most essential accessory in my arsenal. Everyone needs a bag like this.

  3. I honestly wish backpacks were more fashionable because it's the most practical item. However, I wish they were lighter to begin with because once you load them up with your life, you're done.
