Bag shopping

It's been a while (5 years, about) since I made a spreadsheet to assist my bag shopping. So when I got the urge to buy a colorful summer tote, a brief survey of the market told me that there was too much information just to make a decision. I needed to bust out the spreadsheet.

Now, I know science now tells us that too many choices are bad for your mental acuity. (OK I just learned that might be true yesterday.) But I enjoy it, like so many things that are bad for you.

So, without further ado, bag enthusiasts, please go forth and check out my current front-runners in the competition to be my 2008 summer bag. Sadly, I fear this particular bag survey will be a little gendered as I don't know many dudes who carry totes, for whatever reason. And of course if you have a suggestion that's not on my list, please mention it.

The Lighthouse tote does have an inside pocket.

Personally, I like inside and outside pockets, and a zip close. I'm going to look at your links now!

Good to know! I generally like to have lots of pockets for things. I hate having to carry extra pouches inside my bag because it lacks pockets. And i like my phone to be on the outside, that kind of thing.

So I'm really liking the custom build tote from LL Bean but...no inside pockets? That's no good.
