My Briefcase is Too Heavy – Should I Switch to a Backpack?
I’m carrying about 20 pounds of stuff in my briefcase these days. I’ve got a laptop with the power charger, a couple of reference books that I have to have every day, some personal items, papers — you get the idea. I’m not thrilled with the idea of a backpack with a business suit, but I’m also tired of hurting my back. Anything I can do?
