It being spring, I needed to clean out my bag. Especially since I couldn’t find my inhaler and I swore it was in there (turns out, in was in my gym bag). So I thought we’d have a quick look at my bag, or rather my backpack. Funny, I wasn’t too aware of what I had in my bag to begin with. Some, I was aware of, like my notebook. I carry this or my other notebook around all the time. To take down notes, write out shopping lists (or any kind of list. I like making lists), or post ideas. It’s one of the first things I pull out of my bag.
Another thing I tend to keep handy are some tea bags and eating spoon. You don’t know when you are ever going to be in need of them! I don’t know how many times that spoon has saved me on road trips to Seattle.
Then I found my Forever 21 Lion Ring and Gorjana Parker Wrap Bracelet I received years ago. It’s one of my favorite bracelets.
Digging around the main compartment of my backpack I pulled out the essentials: my banged up wallet, facial tissues & first-aid mini kit. When ever I switch bags these guys have to come with. Look how awful my wallet looks. I really need to get a new one, but I’m so picky. I’ll just have to keep searching.
Then there are my office keys on a keychain I made. It’s really looking dirty, so I thing I have to make a new one. If I remember how. I try to keep a spare grocery bag just in case I forget to grab one on my way out of the house, but I always forget that it’s in there.
Then there are some gum and lunch-time vitamins. I have an alarm on my phone to remind me to take then while eating. It’s the only way I’ll remember. You should have seen how happy I was to find my USB stick. I thought I lost that weeks ago. It’s loaded with lots of post images and documents. Note the post-it with yet another book suggestion.
The last bits are the small thing in pockets in the front and side. My lip products and pens are usually stuff in the side pockets to be reachable for quick use. My charges are stuff in one of the front pockets along with the key rings full of membership card. I have way too many, but they do help with getting the best deal!
That’s pretty much it. Sort of pile of boring stuff but essential for everyday life.
