So one of my readers (Beverly) emailed in and asked about the difference between the Pleated Tote and the Get Carried Away Tote so that she could pick one to use for school. Luckily I have both, so instead of just replying to her, I thought that I would share it with all of you.
The GCA is filled with my work laptop, a clipboard, a bag of random stuff, a shirt, packs of gum and a few other random things. The PT is filled with my laptop, two magazines, water bottle, small cosmetic with my GPS in it, wristlet filled with random stuff, my sunglass case and Turn Lock Wallet.
I dont think that this picture does the size difference any justice. The GCA is much bigger than the PT. GCA dimensions are 18.25 x 15.5 x 7.5 and the PT dimensions are 14.75 x 14 x5.25.
Here is the side by side view so that you can see how wide and tall they are.
I decided to take a picture in the mirror so you could get a better idea of the size when you have them on your shoulder.
In the end I think that the Pleated Tote is a better choice depending on how much stuff you carry. The Get Carried Away might be too big. What bag do you use for school or work?
