I saw this on Mel’s blog yesterday & loved it….so interesting to see what’s in someone else’s bag…what they consider essential to have to hand! I thought I’d play along too!!
It’s one of three I use regularly, although I own several more!!! I love that it’s squashy & roomy…made from black leather with silver coloured buckles & eyelet trims, it has three very useful internal pockets!
So what does it hold? Well…I tipped it out onto the bed & apart from the dust bunnies that hopped out & one gum wrapper, which I threw in the bin…too unsavoury to share..this is it…
My wallet, chequebook, filofax, hairbrush & hairspray, brolly, make-up bag, glasses cleaning cloth, pack of tissues, sweeteners, pen, wet wipes, bag light, antibacterial hand cleaner, point & shoot camera, reusable shopper in a neat pouch, cute spider keyring with locker key for work & Eight Hour hand cream (no bag should be without it!!!!). No phone, as I usually keep that on my person! I’m deaf in one ear & if it’s in my bag I often miss it’s ring!!
One step further…the contents of that make-up bag? Just enough for running repairs!!! Elizabeth Arden Mineral Powder foundation, lipstick, lip pencil & lip gloss…anyone would think I worked for them!!! Well…I do!!
Finally….what’s in my wallet? Well…I never knew there was so much in it!! Just a shame that it’s not cash!!!
A grand total of £5.35 in coins! Gift Vouchers from M&S, JLP & Debenhams, an assortment of credit cards, just as substantial a collection of reward cards, JLP ‘cater card’ & staff discount card, Driving licence, library card, QVC membership card, money off vouchers for Quorn, Kenco & Tesco fuel, some Tesco ‘school’ vouchers & a couple of business cards for a hypnotherapist & ‘Ask’ restaurant!!!
At weekends & during school holidays my bag would also hold glucose tablets for Alex (in case of a Hypo) & of course I end up carrying DS’s & PSP’s that they just HAD to bring along on days out!!! Oh…& of course when I’m out & about my car/house keys would be in there too…I weighed it before I tipped it out & it was a surprising 2KG!!!
So…do you carry as much around with you?…or even more?!!! I have friend who owns only ONE bag & her keys & wallet rattle around in it undisturbed!! Do pop over & check Mel’s bag out too!!
Tomorrow is my darling Hubby’s birthday…so I’m off now to bake a cake! Thanks for dropping by…hope to see you again soon!!
