Bag Man

Apparently Kickstarter has decided I fit the profile of someone who wants the perfect bag. They may not be wrong.

One reason why I love winter is I can justify wearing a coat. My favorite coat has a gallon in pocket space. I can carry ALL THE CRAP. Phone, novel, notebook, pens, change, receipts, camera, chargers, headphones, batteries, highlighter, sharpie, etc. The coat becomes my purse.

I even have an October 2009 Facebook post:

Excited I get to wear my purse… I mean… coat this morning.

I have tons of backpacks. A couple work laptop ones. A couple personal laptop ones. A pool one. Three gym ones. And more lots of others.

I have a packed suitcase with a week’s worth of clothes packed so I would not have to pack in an emergency.

I know the pros and cons of each bag for each purpose. I have pretty much settled into having them correctly allocated.

TED Talk: How to buy happiness

If this is right, then money can buy happiness. The problem we create for ourselves is spending the money on expensive things we like. Happiness may come through spending money to help others. Look at charity giving statistics by people in the United States. I hope though as people discover things like Kickstarter, people find funding small projects makes them feel good as well.
