I now use a backpack in place of a brief case. I started after watching all the stuff my kids fit into their backpacks. My laptop, headphones, paperwork, lunch, receipts and all kinds of other stuff fit in there nicely! I haven’t cleaned it out since last October.
Do you really need everything that’s in there?
One woman had trouble parting with stuff and decided to take, the “Backpack Challenge”, to see if she could de-clutter!
