If a lap desk is a mini desk that fits on your lap, then think of the storage pod as a mini drawer for that desk. But whilst the back of a desk drawer can end up being where dusty stationary and old USB chips go to die, you can get a little more 'curated' with LAPOD.
Save the storage pod for high use items that you really need. Portable drives, power packs, chargers, cables, tablet, etc.. maybe earpods, notepad, pens. Or go full minimalist and simply store only your laptop and mouse.
Either way, be nice to yourself and pack a little healthy snack in there too. As Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks says, “Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen."
