My Tremendous List of Everything I Have and Love to Use

By Luis Thiam-Nye on 31 December 2018
You might not know you want it until you see it. Missing something in life? Are you not quite sure what you need to buy? No? In any case, my “list of everything” includes interesting stuff that I own and use.

(Almost) Everything I Have or Use, Regardless of Relevance

What better way is there to start the new year than an inexhaustive list of everything?

To clarify, my list of everything will only cover that which I consider interesting enough to share; so, don’t expect me to be listing “6mm × 12mm Hex-Socket Button-Head Steel Dome Bolt” anytime soon.

Rather, perhaps you might spot something astonishing that you might want to take a slice of. Of that which you didn’t know about before, perhaps there is something here that you would find tremendously useful.

Moreover, treat this page as one of reference. This is because I will certainly come back now and again to update it will the latest gizmos.

And, finally, thank you for using the (affiliate) links provided below. Accordingly, I may receive a small commission when you use the mentioned products/services at no additional cost for you.

The One Bag to Encapsulate Them All

“Oh, if only there were a truly excellent bag most worthy of transporting my laptop”

Well, I must say you're in luck because I have a little secret to share with you. Quite definitively, this CoolBell convertible bag must be the best in town.

Why, you ask? Unlike many other laptop bags, this bag does not just boast roominess, but also its “convertible nature”. In other words, with little effort, you can turn this bag into:

  • A backpack
  • (Sort-of) a briefcase, using handles
  • A messenger bag, with the shoulder strap

If you want a bag that will bring you the joy of questioning why you didn’t buy this sooner, then it’s for you. Otherwise, CoolBell produce other good quality bags that share the desirable convertible aspect. As far as style goes, there is—therefore—no shortage of options!
