Can a bag have too many pockets?Saturday, November 21, 2015
'It should have lots of handy pockets!' That was my number one criterium while searching...
That was my number one criterium while searching for a new bag. Finally I found what I thought was the perfect bag. It had the long shoulder strap I was looking for, but most of all: it had lots of pockets.
But lately there's been this question nagging me in the back of my mind:
'Can a bag have too many pockets?'
Rummage and search
Because I'm constantly rummaging in my bag, searching through all those handy little pockets. Looking for my car keys, my wallet, my pen. You name it, I can't find it. And there's always that panicky moment when I think: 'Oh no! It's gone! I'm never ever going to find it again!'
The solution seems simple enough. Just make sure you put the same thing in the same pocket every time! Pick a pocket for the car key, a pocket for your smartphone etc. And then stick to it. But somehow that doesn't seem to work. Because I just can't seem to remember which pocket I picked for what. And even if I do, then I can't remember if that's where I put it.
How many pockets does my bag have anyway?
- One big one
- One for my wallet
- One for my smartphone
- One big pocket
- Another big pocket on the front that closes with a zipper
- Two square pockets on the front
- One big pocket in the back of the bag
So that's a grand total of 7 pockets. Fair is fair, it's an efficient bag.
So the problem must be me. I'm an inefficient user....
