Coming from the feeling of accomplishment of fitting all my clothes for six weeks into a carry-on suitcase, I needed to decide which personal item to take.
I gathered the items I needed and placed them in three bags I already owned.
• Always Everywhere bag
• Kroser backpack
• Luxon backpack
I decided on the Luxon backpack, my husband’s favorite because it easily fit everything. But when I strapped it on I felt like a turtle and risked toppling over backwards. The Away Everywhere bag didn’t hold enough so my final choice was my favorite Kroser backpack. It just fit me better.
