It’s that time again…it’s Motivation Monday and I hope you’re week is off to a great start! I’m so excited to share one of my favorite tote bags with you today. You may be asking what a tote bag has to do with motivation and I’ll tell you. I find a lot of my drive and motivation through organization. If I feel like everything is in it’s place, clean, and straightened up, my day is sure to start right and I feel I get a lot more done. That means an organized house, an organized desk, and yes, even an organized work bag.
I’d been on the lookout for a different work tote for quite some time that wasn’t super expensive. I absolutely love my Neverfull, but I don’t always like having a bag worth quite a bit of $$$$ sitting out at work, and it comes with only one small pocket, so everything falls into an endless abyss. The Colorful Faux Leather Shopper by Poverty Flats by Rian, sold exclusively at Nordstrom, is exactly what I needed! It comes at a fantastic price point and has an incredible inner pocket that snaps in and out in case you want to pack it in your luggage or use it as a toiletry bag. Plus, the inner lining creates three separate compartments and has a zipper pocket, cell pocket, and catchall pocket.

Here are the items I don’t leave home without when heading to work: laptop, planner, notebook, pencil pouch (with pens, highlighters, whiteout and post its), a pair of sunglasses with case, a pretty lip product, a small bag (with hand sanitizer, powder, small brush, excedrin, eyedrops, Mentos or gum, etc.), cell phone, keys. I always try to keep everything in its place so when I need it, I know where it is.

I absolutely love the gold color of my shopper, because it goes with everything! If you want a fun splash of color it also comes in coral. Shop the link above or below and have a fabulous Monday!
