First and foremost, I want to send a big shout out to Twitter for controlling my life and forcing me to incorporate hash tags in my face to face, human, verbal communication – #awkward?

For today’s inaugural #throwbackthursday post, I am featuring a purchase that protects one of my main modes of Twittering, my iPad.  The purchase, my Kate Spade, “The Journal” iPad case.

I grew up in upstate NY and currently reside in Miami.  This makes for frequent flights where my iPad is an absolute necessity. It had to be protected.  I was looking for quality, style, uniqueness and something that represented me best.

I came across this case on gilt.com (which I mentioned in the first post) and instantly fell in love.  It resembles a folded newspaper or a page out of the classifieds.  For you youngsters, the classifieds are a portion of the newspaper that Craigslist has kind of stole the spotlight from.

The original price was $85.
Gilt’s cost was $45 (plus shipping), which I found to be comparable to most generic plain cases.

I saved $40, a 47% savings.
