I thought of sewing my own bag but that meant precious time away from my knitting.
This is what I found at Jo'Ann's on sale. Final price after I tell you more.
It is a reversible, foam-padded canvas bag.
I added a button closure (used another coupon) with a twisted cord.
The bag has both an inside and outside pocket almost the full height of the bag which is perfect for my computer battery and cord. The inside pocket holds my wireless mouse. I added the D-ring side closures.
Total cost............approximately $12.50. A laptop bag at "Best Buy" will cost you from $35-$75. Needless to say, I am pleased.
Lizzie and I often compare ways to cut costs during these difficult economic times. I was the queen of frugal when it wasn't fashionable so I am used to it.
One of the blogs I read is "Poor Girl Eats Well". I don't consider myself poor but merely a smart shopper.
