Ever since I’ve joined the “portable office” crowd, I’ve been schlepping my laptop and other sundry work items around in a 12 year old messenger bag.

I’ve looked for a replacement on and off but decided to wait both as a form of self-discipline and frugality. Until the other night.

Jen and I were in Marshall’s buying workout shorts, and there in the exercise area was a Timbuk2 Blogger Bag for $15. It retails new for $100, but was last year’s model and was missing the strap.

I snatched it up, added a strap from home, and I’m in business!

And once again, cheapness pays off.

How about you? Are you a bargain hunter? Where/how do you save? What’s your latest good deal?
