What's In My Bag?!

I love reading about what other's carry with them on a daily basis...perhaps it's nosy in nature, but I like to think of it as being "in the know." My husband can attest to the fact that I love purses...I'm a bag lady and proud of it!! I switch out my purses pretty regularly and have perfected the items and what I need to carry down to a science.
My current bag of choice

When laid out doesn't look like much! 

Planner & Notebook (with a wide assortment of pens): The planner is from Papyrus and it might seem like I still live in the dark ages, but we all know how much people love their planners in the blogging world. The notebook is Rifle Paper Co. for blog ideas and notes!

Wallet: Self explanatory & a wonderful gift from Gary! My favorite part about the wallet is the little insert where I keep random cards; it comes out and I can put it in a clutch when we travel!!
Key Case: This holds my T(Metro) pass along with my business cards. Side note - I get really excited when someone asks for my business card because 1. I actually have one and 2. I feel really grown up! 

Little Pouch: This was a trick I got from Megan. I put all my gift cards, store cards, and random cards in here so that they don't get lost or forgotten somewhere else.

Magazine & Kindle: I don't have the longest commute to work, but when I have an extra 20 minutes to read or flip through a mag I take advantage of it (this is also assuming I have a seat on the train - not always an option).

Sunnies: I don't have my sunglasses year round - but with the sun finally showing itself again I'll be carrying these around more.

Beauty: Assortment of lip products (this changes weekly), hand sanitizer, & nail file

Not pictured: Obviously the iPhone

Now that you've seen what I carry, what are staples in your bag that I may have forgotten or need to start carrying?

Biana

  2. Ok first, I love your bag! So cute!! You are so organized! I've never thought about having a separate place for all my gift cards so I usually just dig through my wallet trying to find something and then usually give up only to find it when I'm not trying later. I always have my sunglasses with me... sadly sometimes I have two pairs with me. And another pair in my car. I have the most sensitive to light eyes ever. It sucks! Love those sunnies too!

  11. Pretty much the same as me! It's funny that it doesn't look like much, but then my purse is WAY heavy lol ;) and this post made me think...maybe it's time to take the 2 pairs of gloves out of my purse? haha!

  13. I need that penguin nail file in my life, lol! I used to carry a lot of similar things, but since I don't have a work commute anymore with working from home, I've switched to using smaller purses where I typically only carry my wallet, phone, lipgloss and gum. I'm all about keeping it simple.

  18. Love the idea for carrying store cards and gift cards in a separate pouch. Now I'm going to have to hunt for a new one :)

  19. Your bag so swoon worthy!!! I really need to get my act together and put all my gift cards in a separate pouch....it will definitely relieve all the bulk in my poor wallet! Oh is that the sephora color reveal lip balm??? I love that one how it turns your shade of pink. Us bloggers and our planners how would would we live otherwise right? I also need to send you a crystal nail file they are life changing! xoxoxo

  26. I'm a big bag girl myself :) I love yours! That notebook is so cute too! I keep basically all the same things except mine has another purse inside of my purse for the absurd amount of lipstick I carry. You never know the mood you'll be in :P

  27. You're so organized!!! I have so much in my purse, it is ridiculous! In addition to all that you have, I carry a water bottle, a kind bar or two, hairbrush, and gum!

  28. Cool post! I love seeing what other people drag along with them. We actually carry a lot of the same things! I don't usually bring a magazine, but I don't think I get as much sitting time as you do. I definitely bring something to read if I know I'll be sitting awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love reading these too! But girl you have like nothing in that huge purse of yours!!! I have like a trillion receipts and I recently found matchbox cats and lots of fruit snacks (I'm a nanny lol) but you really are so organized! I am for the most part but not my purse

  30. Hi Love! I've been missing catching up with you and I'm finally (well, only because I'm on a cruise ship in the Bahamas and it's not sunny!) getting a chance to see what you've been up to. Love these bag posts and some day I'm going to do the same thing. Also, jealous of your sunnies 1) because I would love to buy a fab pair and 2) I won't spend the money on them because I inevitably sit on them, throw them in my bag & scratch the lenses or something else terrible. Aye aye aye!! xo

  31. Pens and a notebook is totally me - always, always. Haha, and I love that you keep a magazine with you!

  34. I'm glad you said you switch purses! I adore my Louis don't get me wrong, but for me it is better in the winter with those colors haha I am about to switch to my go-to summer Longchamp but I've been eying some bright KS's too- love your wallet by the way!

  40. I need a little pouch for my extra cards... Smart idea!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ohh I love your bag! One of my friends gave me this little pouch-- I think it's actually for business cards, but I use it for extra cards and things and it's perfect! I have the worst habit of taking certain things out of my bags and switching to another and then not putting them back and never having what I need! I definitely need to do a better job with my bag organization!
