Green Technology

My laptop is going green!  At work, I got a laptop since I'm "off site" now and other stupid things.  Anyway, so I get a work laptop and the bag they gave me is huge but doesn't hold anything and is HEAVY.  I mean really, it hurts my shoulder.  So I decided, since I want one for when I go back to school anyway, to get a laptop bag! 

I decided I would stick to stores close to home which included the crappy mall which does have a Boscov's and a Hallmark (which has Vera Bradley).  We ended up at TJ Maxx though on Rob's suggestion and look what he picked out for me!  We found some plain black bags too that looked more "professional" but this one was just too fun!


But what makes this one so much more wonderful is that its made from recycled plastic bottles!  How cool!  It also came with a hot pink laptop sleeve for the inside and has lots of pockets.  Anyway, you can tell I'm really excited about my new bag, huh?  Oh!  And it was only $25!  Vera Bradley would have been like $125.  Haha.  Enough about my fabulous new work bag.  Can't wait to carry it around and annoy all the guys I work with.  I'm sure they love having a girl around!

Love the bag! Yes, it's adorable, but the fact that it's from recycled material is even better! My kids' schools collects "trash" to send to TerraCycle which "up-cycles" it into other stuff...And they are in Trenton!!! Glad you found such a great bag...Rob is a very good shopper!

I got the Lilly Bloom lunch bag at Boscov's (same exact pattern as a matter of fact!) on sale for $12. I like the bag but not the style. It's got a zipper compartment on the bottom that I don't like. You're more than welcome to it and you'll have a matching set.

If its not working for you Michele, I will definitely take it! I love my Tupperware one but I used to have a fridge for my lunch. Now, I'm using ice packs and this one doesn't really have an insulated lining. Thanks!
