If your freebie tote bag repping your favorite radio station or magazine publisher is looking pretty beaten up, the canvas version of Madewell’s beloved Transport Tote, already on sale, is an additional 30 percent off with code CLASSIFIED today — an especially good option if you need something sturdy to carry a laptop to work. The bag has been a Strategist favorite since it was recommended to us by Smitten Kitchen’s Deb Perelman in 2018: “I do not have very exciting or expensive tastes in handbags; I just need a bag with a handle-drop length … that holds a laptop, water bottle, and all the toys my kids swear they want to play with that I get stuck carrying home.” The canvas version of the bag has durable leather straps, so it will hold up to everyday use.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
