In two weeks we're dropping JohnnyDisco off in Tucson for maintenance.
Since we'll be homeless, My Fella and I are driving the car down to San Carlos, Mexico for a month to stay at a rental casita.
Problem is I have no luggage. Being fulltime RV-ers (almost 5 years now), we take our home with us everywhere. Including vacations.
My Fella still has a sports duffle bag and a couple backpacks; but as a perpetual downsizer, I gave away all my luggage years ago. So after planning the Mexico trip, we started searching for an expandable duffle bag. Or a lightweight carry-on.
We found that even in discount stores like Ross and Marshalls, they're pretty expensive. And for $40, I expect more than flimsy zippers and cheap stitching.
But yesterday we walked into Sears and stumbled over these...
A combo pack of Sears Craftsmen tool bags in two sizes. The bags are constructed to haul around heavy tools, so they've got to be sturdy enough for clothes, toothpaste and shampoo.
The set was on sale at Sears for only $14.99. Big tool bag for clothes, baby bag for toiletries.
In case you haven't noticed, I'm not a very fancy girl. No make-up or high heels in my wardrobe.
Yet I still feel like a bit of a toolbag myself, hauling around these manly things in place of luggage.
On the other hand, it's hard to resist such a good price for a quality item. Maybe I'm a luggage trendsetter. (Or maybe it's cause I've spent the past month with a hammer in my hand and pencil stuck in my hair, helping My Fella with RV renos...)
