Challenge 13

Challenge 13 - Buy that practical thing you never get around to.
Actually I feel like I buy nothing BUT practical things - my budget doesn't really allow for extravagant spending (and last weeks denim shirt purchase was a total necessity.  Obviously.)  When I read 'practical thing' on the list in the first place, I thought of kitchenware for some reason, but living with a flatmate who owns every kitchen accessory and more, I was spared the pain of shopping for anything that dull.  I did however need a new backpack.

I'm terribly fussy about shopping for bags - they have to be just the right size and shape and colour - so it's something I almost never do, preferring to stick to the ones I like until they fall apart.  Like the old backpack was about to do.  After numerous trips to TK Maxx I finally found a suitable one in the shape of this black Jeep number.  It's spacious, dark coloured and has an interior laptop sleeve, plus a front pocket for all my handbag junk.  Perfect!  While I was there I also picked up a penknife, cause I've always wanted one, and you can't get more practical than that, right? (And it was reduced to £3, not sure if that will prove to be a bargain or not...)

  1. I really want a penknife - it would be totally useful as well, when camping and suchlike.
    I had to buy a backpack last year to go to Bestival, but I didn't really go practical.
