Last year, our work bags mostly sat still. Maybe we kept them out for a while, thinking we’d need them some day soon, but as the months passed, we realized it might be a while until we needed them again. It’s finally time to start heading back into the office again, but the thing is, it’s been so long that we’re kind of sick of our old bags. Plus, a refresh could certainly feel nice!
On the same page as Us? We’ve picked out five work bags and backpacks that will inspire everyone else on your commute to go shopping as well. They’re all on Amazon and they’re all under $50, so let’s check them out!
