Happy August Lists - Day 12

Day 12 - What's In Your Bag (Purse)?


From The Internet - Not Mine

My current bag/purse contains: a burgundy wallet; a ripped cheque book, although rarely used; a zippered bag that contains = lippy X 2, aspirins and Tylenol, nail clipper, moist wipes and tissues; a mini calendar diary; a mini note pad; 4 pens; keys to my friend's house; my car keys, my house & clinic keys; a loose change zip pouch, which gets quite heavy with loonies and toonies (Canadian $1 & $2 coins); a Nikon pocket point and shoot camera, my cell phone.

I change my purse from light to dark on the Summer and Autumn arrival dates.  I am not bothered about brand names for purses and I would never spend a lot of money on a purse.  I have about 7 purses in my closet, 6 of which were gifts, 4 are clutches and have to be hand carried.  I do prefer a long strap so that I can sling over my shoulder.  I do like the backpack style but beside of a wing injury, it hurts to carry on my back.  

This is my current bag - I am thinking it is too big to ever be a repeat.  This Autumn's switch over will definetly be smaller and more of a purse in size.  My aching shoulders will thank me.

  1. I like a bag with a shoulder strap, although sometimes use the backpack type. I don't carry much with me - camera, phone, comb, cash, keys, medicine and my latest book.

    1. Now that you mention it, I should carry a comb! My hair gets quite wild so maybe that would be a good addition.

  2. Amen for shoulder bags! Nice ones seem so hard to find these days. Rucksack-style great, but I've had stuff stolen so...
    I did enjoy poking my nose into your bag - you seem very well prepared. I too believe in having everything I need to hand, though my bag's not quite as big as yours, and I'm forever having to remember to take my penknife out before I fly etc. (One point of interest - no umbrella! My little umbrella comes everywhere with me - but then I guess that's English weather!)

    1. That is awful that someone stole from your rucksack purse. Penknife, now that is an interesting item to carry about. I do have an umbrella in the car at all times.

    2. Never used the actual blade, but the tweezers, the toothpick, the scissors, the bottle-opener!

  3. I'm another one who fills a bag too full. Maybe buying smaller bags is the answer..
