Me, Myself and I

In my bag #FridayReflections

December 16, 2016

Over my years of working, I’ve changed the types of bags I’ve used. I’ve used tote bags and messenger bags. I’ve tried a regular handbag and backpacks. Some have been dependent on my mood, others have been dependent on my mode of transport. Currently, here’s what my bag looks like:

It’s two years old and I’ve used it on and off and also when I travelled through Canada and the U.S. It’s easier to use when I’m driving to work as I can carry my lunch separately.

So what’s in the bag? Here’s a look:

  1. A book. I always carry a book and I’m currently reading The Rosie Effect.
  2. My laptop. Just in case I get a chance to blog or write.
  3. Medications – sinus tablets {yay sinusitis!}, anti-histamines and paracetamol
  4. Tissues.
  5. Pencil case with pens, pencil and USB.
  6. Wallet.
  7. Notebook. To jot down my gazillion ideas.
  8. My Filofax organiser. Can’t live without my diary.
  9. Chewing gum.
  10. Keys to my car and home.

So that’s my bag. What about you?

What’s in your bag?

    Interesting. My bag is a lot messier – but there’s a lot of similar stuff, except that I carry my Kindle instead of a book.

    I love learning about what’s in people’s bags. Mine has a lot of random stuff in it, like CDs with audio magazines on them. Not that I have a portable CD player with me, but I get those CDs delivered at my husband’s and keep forgetting to empty my bag once back at my place. By the way, I had no idea organizers still existed in the age of SmartPhones.

    My bag will surely have my mobile, wallet, extra ear rings and bindi. After kids, a diaper and baby wipes are also becoming mandatory ☺

    I’ve moved to a backpack for weekdays as I just find it’s easier for my long commute (carrying food and drink just gets too sore with a handbag sometimes). I also keep a good stock of sinus medication on me!

    Gee, they say a woman carries the world in her bag and how true is that! I would be having my kindle instead of the book. And I should write for this prompt. It’s awesome 😀

    I carry a purse and a larger bag. My purse includes my keys, phone, library card, appointment card, wallet and various messy items I won’t describe further. You are brave to take a picture.
