I am always on the go. I travel for business quite a bit, and I travel for pleasure. In preparation for my wedding I have also been hitting the gym for the past few months. Even when home in Chicago, I am constantly on the move. I often carry around my laptop and find a spot to work between appointments. Because of this I very often have a lot of stuff with me. So, I have a serious bag addiction.

I need to be able to carry my mobile office, my gym gear, sometimes an overnight bag, and all of my purse stuff. I usually end up carrying multiple bags, and I generally have no problem with that. However, it can be confusing, and can cause me to look like I’m hopping on a plane when I’m only going into the city!

Best Buy realizes that women who are on the go fill many roles, and have a lot of stuff to carry. They recently developed the Modal Concept Tote. The Modal Concept Tote is designed to carry everything that you need in style. The Modal Concept Tote is a beautiful shade of purple so it stands out. You will likely not have to worry about your bag getting mixed up with another.


The Tote includes spaces to store your wallet and other valuables in discreet, water-resistant pockets. There’s also space to store warm hairstyling tools. That is awesome! I usually end up wrapping mine in a towel in a hurry when I need to pack them while warm. This bag is setup in a very convenient, portable footprint that can go from the gym to the office or vice versa.

  • Several Spacious Compartments: There are 2 exterior compartments and 4 huge interior compartments. This is plenty of space to store everything that you need, and more. The Tote includes a cell phone pocket and a front utility pocket for versatile storage. This bag can accommodates up to 45 lbs.
  • Carrying Options: The Tote includes a padded, adjustable shoulder strap as well as 2 handles for comfortable carrying.
  • Laptop and Tablet Storage; There are dedicated, secure and padded sleeves for both laptop and tablet storage with quilted soft-touch lining.


  • Fitness Gear: The heavy duty, moisture-resistant fitness pocket has plenty of room for your workout clothes, including shoes, and is vented to promote air circulation along with straps for a towel or yoga mat.

  • Thermo Pocket: Storage for hot or cold beverages, or your lunch.
  • Key Storage: I love a bag that has a dedicated key clip. It’s so easy to lose your keys in a bag full of stuff.


These are just some of the awesome features of the Modal Concept Tote. All of the pockets are labeled with little tags telling you exactly what the area is for which I think is pretty cute. Of course there is room to compromise. Not going to the gym? Use the gym pocket to store your shoes for your night out. Or use it to store your toiletries.

The Modal Concept Tote can be found only at Best Buy for $59.99.
