Looking for Cheap-o School/Book Tote

  1. Hey guys - I've been using my balenciaga city for school for the past year now and I feel awful for the poor thing. Because of the tassles people sometimes STEP on them when the bag's on the floor :push: - it's just too expensive of a bag for school. The year before I used my LV speedy, which is great because it fits alot, but now because I'm taking a 20 credit course load I have to use a HUGE 2" stuffed binder filled with mini text books and novels, along with papers, etc - so having to hold the speedy AND the book is a PITA. So then in April I got 2 large Coach hobo's because they were cheaper than my Balenciaga, which worked best for school being it went on my shoulder, and was still "designer". Now I'm beginning to think I should just forgo expensive bags all together for school. I'm looking for a cheaper canvas tote - and my vision is a black tote with a white skull on front. Any ideas where I can find this mystery bag? Thanks all :heart:
  2. ^^^^ they look ultra busy though - I'm looking for a cheap canvas bag - I'm not going for durability right now because I may end up hating it and ditching it. I've been carrying designer bags for 4+ years now - I may hate carrying a non-designer bag. Ya dig?

  7. Those are exactly what I'm looking for - simple tote bags. But I just don't know what kind...arg...

    I'm still looking through everyone elses suggestions - thanks! I'm not into the messenger style or purse styles - really a tote that'll fit my books length wise, you know? Thanks so much guys - I'm lost!
