I was at Office Depot to pick up a backpack from another deal, and I noticed they had a bunch of Studio C® Mint to Be Laptop Tote With 15" Laptop Pocket, Black on clearance for only $4.94. The original price is around $50 (https://www.officedepot.com/a/pro...Be-Laptop/
). I checked the material and was surprised by how sturdy it was. Not the best looking tote, but it's a very well-made tote for only $4.94. Not sure if this is nation-wide, so it's YMMV. Good luck!
