What's in my bag?

Now I am stepping way out of my comfort zone for this post! My friend Roo from Nice Girl Notes had this fun idea for us to show and share what was in our bags that we carry every day. 

Here's my stuff!

Yes, I even numbered everything...

1. My wallet...I thought I would love the snap clutch style, but I carry too much crap stuff in there.  I never "love" any of my wallets.

2. Coupon organizer...Just in case. I can guarantee that seventy percent of what's in there is expired.

3. My Vera Bradley wristlet...I like her stuff, but for inside my big bag. I can't commit to a pattern for everyday out-in-the-open use.

4. Keys...Moving on.

5. Cell phone...I heart texting.

6. Moisturizer...I am picky, this is the one I love.

7. iPod Touch and cozy (that I sewed, yes I'm bragging a little)...What did I ever do without this thing? It's one of my favorite things. Ever.

8. Ibuprofen...I have three kids...moving on.
9. Eye drops...I wear contact lenses.
10. Tissues...I have three kids...
11. Sunglasses.
12. Pens, and lip gloss...I just didn't number them separately.
13. Batteries...for my camera.  They've been there so long I don't know if they are good or bad.
14. Mints...
15. Mirror...
16. Hand Santitizer...I work in a preschool...Enough said.
17. Tiny compostition notebook...why isn't it decorated for crying out loud?

So there it is.  I'd like to thank Roo for giving me the motivation to clean out and organize my bag today. I am looking forward to seeing what is in everyone elses bag at her blog!



  1. The cozy you made is adorable!!

  2. Hi I'm following you from 'Where's the Love Friday'! If you get the chance, I would love a follow back!

    Your bag seems so organized compared to mine. Now maybe I should clean mine out.

  4. I love the Neutrogena lotions too!

  5. Hahaha @ "moving on."

    I think I have the same cell phone. I also heart texting.

    I need to get a coupon organizer. I shove them all in my wallet, and when I'm rummaging and hear crinkly paper, I wrongly assume I have cash. And that's sad.

  6. I love your IPod cozy! I totally need to make one of those!!

  7. Oh you are brave! My bag is like a magician's bag. You never know what I'm going to pull out of it!

  8. I agree I can never find a wallet that I's like the holy grail. I'll let you and the world know if I ever find it :-) I also agree about Vera Bradley, I love her stuff but I can't commit. The wristlet is doable tho. Isn't texting the bomb diggity? What did I ever do without it?

  9. Thanks for sharing! Do you have a tutorial on here for your iPod cozy? I like me some Eclipse gum too. :)

  10. Looks similar to my bag without the contact solution. ;) Mine also carries a fold up diaper pad a few diapers and some wet wipes, a sippy cup and a snack bag of crackers. I have a toddler you see. ;)

    Stopping by and following from Where's the love friday! Come say hi back!

  11. Fun idea! And tee hee, I think we have the same phone, except mine is red to match the strawberry pouch I carry it in.

    Btw, I hopped here from Where's the ♥ Friday. ^.^

  12. I love your answers to this! I am also your new follower from Show the Love. :)

  13. This is such a good idea! I would show you what's in mine, but it would probably consist of about 5 different lip glosses and a bunch of receipts that just get stuffed in my purse. I'm so unorganized!

  14. Your purse must be so neat and organized! If I dumped out my bag and showed you it would be embarrasing. Lots of wadded up receipts, coupons in an envelope, everything that should be in my wallet just haphazardly tossed in loose. I could go on and on but you get the idea! Like your blog!

  15. i work in preschool too..i am your newest follower...

  17. What a great link-up! How fun! I love your bag contents. I probably would have much more crap than that, but hey, you know how it is. Oh, and I absolutely have a ton of crayons, maybe loose or in a mini-box from a restaurant! :) Not always carrying something to draw on, but hey, crayons are fun, anyway.

  18. Love that your reasoning for many of your items is that you have 3 kids. Need you say more?
    Have a great weekend!

  19. PS Your profile says you don't have time to craft but you do anyways...this confirms you are totally awesome :o).

I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
