Recently at work they were like, "Hey so you can work from home 4 days a week. Also we're moving, so the view is great but now your cube is gone and it's called hoteling, and the space you used while you're here is only for when you're here."
I'm particular about some things in my life, for example I don't eat or drink out of plastic and don't particularly enjoy disposable cups. I know this next one sounds over the top, but I also do not like stale air. I don't like tap water, seed oils, and people who don't wash their hands.
Due to these factors I just bring my meals and water AND coffee AND supplements to work on the one day per week that I'm on the office. I left some possessions at work such as a single serve french press, two fans, and real cups. I bring 8 glasses of water, everything is packed in glass and heavy as heck, it's my life let me live it.
Anyway I'm strong and healthy, carrying 20lbs of crap up one flight of stairs was no issue for me. However now I have more things I have to bring back and forth every week and 16 stories up. These items include: real cups, my fan, laptop, and now the whole coffee maker has to go with me.
A man with less determination than myself would let the change in circumstances change his decisions. I will not alter my path because things have gotten harder, BUT there is no way I'm carting 20lbs of glass, food, and electronic equipment up 16 stories by hand. People might ask "what about the elevator?" They're incredibly slow and now all of my stuff doesn't fit in my giant trader joe's grocery bag so it's still a long walk to my desk and God by his grace gave us the wheel 10,000 years ago.
It was time for an upgrade. It was high time! Enter the Toughbuilt Massive Mouth XL toolbag. Yeah it's a tool bag and it looks tactical and has an offensive sounding name. I could probably put my whole dog in this thing if he'd get in. It's huge and I'm thinking of adding actual power tools to my edc. I mean why not? A reciprocating saw is probably one of the most useful tools on the planet. How about a wrecking bar or a power bank big enough to use as a back up whole house battery? At the very least I'm going to go with a tool roll of the same tools I carry in my Leatherman Wave+ but full size. You just never know when you may need em.
