GTD Wallet for less?

I saw on the David Allen (GTD) website a very nice sized wallet with a notepad build in. However, at $89 it's kinda expensive. "The wallet’s compact 3” x 4 3/4 “ design features 2 compartments for holding up to 5 cards, with 2 additional full size pockets for cash , receipts, or business cards. The wallet fits comfortably in your suit, jeans pocket or bag. " Where can I find a similarly sized walled/notepad combo for less?

Dropped my planner in a puddle, this has got to end.

I'm about to buy my first briefcase, and I'm looking for advice. I don't need to carry a laptop, I just want something that will help me juggle a couple books, my planner, loose sheets of paper, a 3-ring binder, a newspaper, and my purse as I go between home, work and work-related appointments. It should be easy to carry, professional looking, good at organizing these things, and maybe it can replace my purse during the work day. What are the best features of awesome briefcases? What should I be wary of?
