I’m buying one! Great tip—thanks.
I normally use some of the free make-up/toiletry bags I’ve acquired through Clinique skincare promotions for all my paraphernalia. (A great word, I think, your use of which inspired me to write a blog post.)
Just got back from Paris myself! Amazing weather. Very very tired now though — walked pretty much everywhere.
And this $20 wonder is better than a 25б zip-lock bag because…?
Michael: The Grid-It gives me easier access to specific items without having to rifle through a ziplock bag; I can just reach in and pull out an item without having to remove the whole thing. It also helps gives some of my less structured bags a bit more rigidity than a ziplock bag would; because it gives a shape to what would otherwise be a shapeless tangle of objects, and that shape is similar to the books, folders and the laptop I often have in my bag, it aids overall orderliness among my items. At US$20 it’s not for everyone, of course. Anyway, there’s my earnest answer to your snarky query.
When did Ziplocks start costing 25б?
This looks like my hair bands. I wonder if one could make one, a la Martha?
This is one of the most amazing tools I have seen recently. Kudos to the defendants who have developed this product and this is definitely one of its kind. I really liked how the organizer can carry all your things together, without causing a chaos. This one can definitely surprise a lot of people when you put these out from your backpack!
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
