Hi, Coachies! Rory and I are on a trip - I have a very important job interview tomorrow, and I thought some of you might like to see how I use Rory when traveling for work.

As you can see, I needed a lot for this trip. The 9 black folders are packets for each of my interviewers with my resume and generic business card. My husband made these for me, he's amazing. I've obscured the info on the label, but you get the idea. Also included, with sources for the non-Coach items:

Desk calendar - Target, and it works better for me than any other paper planner. Lots of space to write events and tasks for each day.

Journal/Notebook - Martha Stewart for Staples

Aqua "secure folder" - Martha Stewart for Staples

Robin perforated clutch (compact, lipstick, bobby pins, hair ties, moleskin for my shoes if they hurt, other odds and ends, RX med pillbox, wallet and uni case)

Fuschia zippy wallet

MFF black sig large wristlet (pens, post it tags, highlighters, Crystal light packets, artificial sweetener packets, paper clips, binder clips, extra breath strips, card case)

MFF black sig card case

Tag motif universal case (OTC meds, bandaids)

Breath strips, tissues, emery board, earbuds, gloves (gift from Mom), packet of wipes.

iPad in case and iPhone, pashmina from Stein Mart not shown (but carried in there too!)

Packing for business travel is one of my superpowers - I can fit everything I need in Rory and my carry-on suitcase. Losing your luggage when 5 months pregnant will leave a scar that time doesn't heal 😄

To protect Rory's handles (this is a LOT, I don't want to stress the handles). I put the handles over the roller handle on my carry-on.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you! It became a hobby of sorts after I started traveling frequently. Yes, I'm a super dork! 😄

So awesome! Thanks for taking the time to share. Best of luck to you on your interview---go get that job--it is yours!
When I first starting wanting a black Rory a little over a year ago, your pics were the first that I found. Rory is the bag that brought me to Coach.
