As a busy mom who feels like she sometimes carries the world around in her purse, the last thing I need in a laptop bag is something heavy and bulky. That's why I love my sleek new Laptop Messenger Bag. It's the perfect size to hold my laptop, my momAgenda, a few legal pads and some other necessities for those days when I want to work at the local coffeeshop, or I have a meeting. With a divider to help secure my laptop, there's plenty of room for other items inside the bag, in the outside zippered compartment, or one of the side compartments (perfect for keeping pens or a cell phone handy).
Made from a durable microfiber with faux-leather handles, I like that this bag can be carried as a tote, or slung on my shoulder when I need to have my hands free (when don't I??). Available from Simply Bags, this laptop bag will only set you back about $40, and includes monogramming. You can have your full monogram, or just an initial, stitched on in a fun, contrasting color. My bag is chocolate brown with a pretty kiwi "M" on the front.
