    How many hours/days since your last TB purchase?

    TB is so addictive! Only discovered TB in March and bought an A45, MCB, SCB, and a Side Kick.

    This morning I just bought a Synapse 25 in (gorgeous) Cloud/island combo, a Tri-Star in Black halcyon/island and a Western Flyer in original halcyon/ultraviolet, plus the Tri-Star packing cubes in large, medium, and small and a small travel tray in Iberian. Going to see which packs up better for an upcoming trip where I will be limited to 1 carry-on bag of 15 lbs (with no personal item).

    The synapse is for my husband and I will decide between the TS and WF.

    So when did you last succumb to your desires and what did you buy?

    Yesterday! Small snake charmer in wasabi, small travel tray in UV, large shop bag in UV, a single blue pouchkin (for earrings) and 3 mini Q-Kits! As expected, one of my teenagers is already trying to claim a Q-Kit, which is why I ordered one for each of us!

    This is my third order since April. But I'm mostly done. I think!

    There, fixed it for you. How many hours/days since your last TB purchase?

    Last week from TB. Also, wrangled me some coveted unicorn Sitka accessories from another TB enthusiast. I check eBay virtually daily to see what surprises pop up there.

    The only thing that is my saving grace currently is waiting for a larger luminary and I am not a fan of any of the current s19 color combos.

    From the mothership, about 10 days ago. I had a laptop that needed some new clothes (cache), and I wanted to see if the Hero's Journey side pocket would make a good extra top pocket within the Synapse (surprise: it does!).

    Thanks to some online auction surfing in the wee hours, three days ago I snagged a mostly new Synapse 19 in cloud and dawn. Now I'm contemplating a matching Side Effect for stowing the computer cables and such.

    Ordered just today in fact... one of the new Wasabi A30 travel laundry packing cubes to join the Island one I bought last month; a Dawn Cubelet before they disappear; a stray Canyon Cubelet that Kat found wandering around lonesome, needing a home (and am I the only one who really really wanted a Canyon Travel Cubelet that they just *never* made!?); a Medium Cafe Freudian Slip to try inside one of my Pop Totes that I'm using as a craft bag; a Wasabi LSB to join many other Shop Bags; and a Steel luggage tag, just because I really like Steel....

    And I have to confess that is a 'hold me over' order because I am (not so) patiently waiting for the Steel/Island new items to be ready to go, as well as the new zip top shopping bags and whatever other mystery items are in the next debut

    EDIT: and I just bought something on EBay, ouch

    TB is so addictive!
    I know it! I've resisted buying handy pouches and bags for years, but after I got my first TB, a Swift, the floodgates opened.

    My most recent get was a couple days ago when I found a luminary on ebay. I'm dying of impatience, it won't be here till the first week of June. Gah!

    I m always tempted by TB on Ebay, but unless I already have the exact style of bag and KNOW it works for me, there is no amount of savings that would replace the 60 day return policy that buying directly from TB provides. I sold high-end luggage and handbags for years and have had at least 100 travel bags over the last 30 years-many were mistakes wherein I loved the style, design, color whatever, only to find it did not work for me.
    The A45 is my first big travel bag from TB and I love it. Packs like a dream, holds a ton without weighing a ton, and has beautiful organization. I foresee buying another one just so I never, ever, don't have one!

    It's been almost a year!! June 27, 2017

    I guess I have all the bags I need but I still keep coming back

    Thinking about another size Yeoman but really Small and Medium cover what I need.

    65 days and 2.5 hours... this is actually more recently than I would have guessed, but I searched my emails to check.

    Agreed... the swaps & EBAY are a good way to pick up items you do know you want and/or a colour combo that is no longer available...
