Shoulder bag with hand handle...

Do you know of any alternatives to this bag? It's just a shoulder bag but the handle on the top is important to me. Available in the UK, ideally less expensive than this. Thanks!

Bath tray for bath with no lip

Last year I got my sister a bath tray for relaxing in the bath with a wine glass, book, etc. I then discovered that her bath is built right against the wall with no inner lip, so she can’t use it. Is there a similar, clever product for a bath without an inner lip? The tray I originally bought was this one. (Don’t as me why they’re eating almonds out of an egg cup...) [more inside]

What's some luggage I can bike with?

I need a new suitcase. I also realized my preferred method of getting to the airport is biking to BART, leaving my bike in a locker, and then taking the train to the airport. I did this successfully on a short trip with only a duffle bag thrown into my front basket. I need a new suitcase. Help me find one that I can easily bike with on some upcoming longer trips.

Tell me how much a mattress cost.

I'm (unfortunately) mattress shopping, and discussions with friends and family about my trials have provoked a question. Is there any tangible value to a $1,000-$1,300 mattress over a sub-$600 mattress? Assume that size, firmness, type, and comfort level, and financial impact doesn't play a role. [more inside]

very narrow single-walled water bottle?

I'd like to complain to Target about something they don't sell

Target sells rash guards for men and children but not for women and I'd like to complain to someone at Target that could maybe do something about it. I've used the chat function on their website but that went nowhere. So do I email someone or tweet at someone, and who would that person be? [more inside]

Sewing Machine Upgrade

I have a fairly old basic machine and it lacks what I think are some basic features and making my already rusty skills even worse. What’s a good upgrade without going overboard?

Macy's furniture service plan sounds good, but I'm suspicious

Ordinarily I reflexively say no to the retailer's service plan. But the one that Macy's is offering on furniture sounds pretty good and I could see myself using it. Am I missing something? [more inside]

Yet another "help me find this garment" question

I spied this screen capture and was immediately obsessed with owning the shirt or dress Kate Bolduan is wearing, or one very much like it. I love the lace raglan sleeves which dress up an otherwise casual looking top; a color instead of white, longer sleeves, or a different lace are all very much acceptable to me. A shirt would be preferable, but I'm even willing to do a dress. That's how obsessed I am. Help?
