+ Look for Less

The Range: October 11, 2016

Some readers have mentioned a decreasing quality in reading posts since we went to The Daily Eight.  I agree that sometimes I feel like I’m forcing choices to keep up with the volume.  So I thought I would bring back an old favorite two days per week to keep things fresh.

Corner Office


Kate Spade New York Cameron Byrdie Bag ($298)

Middle Cubicle


Cambridge Satchel Company Saddle Bag ($137)

Intern Desk


Sole Society Thalia Crossbody Bag ($49)

    I like this feature too. But does anyone else find saddle bags annoying? I hate having to lift the entire flap to access the inside of the bag. Maybe it’s just me.

      Yes, this is why I look for ones that have a small back pocket that I can slide my phone into. I don’t mind opening up the bag to occasionally get my wallet and keys, but want to have my phone readily available.

      I really want it in the porcini. It’s one of those, in the cart, out of the cart situations.

    Also happy to see the return of this feature.

    I have to admit, I’ve been avoiding the site because of the daily eight. I tend to get drawn in to news Roundups and want to read all of the linked items, which results in my losing a half hour of time at work instead of the two minute break I intended to take. To prevent that time loss, I just skip the posts altogether. But then I feel guilty that I’m not keeping up and slightly stressed that the unread posts count in my blog reader is high. It’s ridiculous to feel stress about this, but as someone who strives for an empty inbox everyday at work, it is a well-ingrained response.
