Just because you’re a Frugal Snob doesn’t mean you need a blah bag. Enter Madewell’s Scholar Satchel. The words “messenger bag” tend to make me gag, but this satchel is a chic messenger bag. Yes, there is such a thing. I would consider going back to school if one was required to be a “scholar” to actually carry this. Which says a lot, because I hated school. But the good news is, you don’t even have to be a scholar to carry it. Shocking, I know. The canvas bag comes in black and green and natural and canvas. Though the double straps give this bag a slight PS1 look, this is definitely not a copy. The Scholar Satchel would be a great addition to any Frugal Snob’s closet, Frugal Scholar or not.
