We’re at the halfway mark of the Blog-tember Challenge! Woohoo! This has been so much fun for me. Thanks for following along! Today’s prompt is:
Tuesday, Sept. 15: What’s in your bag? Pick up your purse and peruse its contents, then share with us!
This is one of my favorite things! I love seeing what other people carry around in their purses and bags as much as I like going through my own. The #thingsorganizedneatly hashtag of people’s bag contents are the best. So, here’s what’s in my bag:
- pile of recipts that need to be dealt with
- water bottle [doesn’t usually fit in my bag but it goes wherever the bag goes]
- zippered pouch for girl supplies [opened makeup = awfully messy]
- clutch wallet
- moleskine notebook
- three pens
- pocket moleskine
- paint chips for party planning
- eos lip balm
- leather pouch for other lip sticks/balms & mini lighter [for survival and emergencies]
This is on a very good day. I’ve gotten better at keeping my purse clean, organized, and not overflowing with junk and trash. Having a beautiful but smallish bag helps with that. So does reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up ;). If it’s not getting used, out of the purse it goes!
Pens are the hardest things for me to keep where I need them, I always end up carrying them off so keeping three in my purse helps ensure I have at least one to write with. But there’s another one in my wallet too, just in case…
After having many a purse get stained/ruined by makeup, lotion, etc. I started keeping those things in zippered pouches to avoid damage to my bag. A small pouch is much easier [and cheaper!] to replace than a purse. Plus, it keeps things tidier and easier to find – and I can just take the whole pouch out if I don’t need it that day. Same thing for my chapsticks and lip balms, especially in the summer, much less potential damage when they’re tucked into a little pouch.
I’m actually surprised there wasn’t a small collection of bobby pins or hair ties hanging out in the bottom of my bag. Those like to sneak in and hang out.
What’s in your bag? I want to see!
