When I first started watching You Tube videos, one of the first ones that I ever saw were from a beauty guru who filmed herself sharing what she carries in her handbag. I found humor in this because I couldn’t believe just how much stuff she kept pulling out of the bag. That’s when I realized that I was no different because I probably carry way too much stuff in my handbag too.
In fact, someone once asked me if there was anything that I didn’t have in my purse. Oddly enough at that time, I did carry a lot more than I do now (you’ll find that hard to believe once you read my list)! For the record, on the weekends, I use a smaller cross-body bag to carry my wallet, phone, keys, etc.
During the week, I carry a rather large size tote to work because it allows me to fit everything I need. I like to switch out my handbags periodically so that I can be sure that I am using each one rather than letting them collect dust. We definitely do not want that. About a week ago, I decided to start using my Michael Kors tote bag again. I purchased it at my local outlet mall almost three years ago.
With that said, here are the lovely contents of my weekday work tote!
Coach wristlet – Serves as my wallet right now and mainly holds my license, debit card, grocery and other cards that I use more frequently. I also keep my lipstick and a lip gloss in here, keys
I have two of the exact same black pencil pouches (I purchased them at Target in the back to school section). They were just too cute so I had to buy two!
Pencil pouch # 1 contains: Motrin, Excedrin, Neosporin, hand sanitizer, nail clipper and nail file, hair clips, band aids, hand cream, EOS lip balm & hand lotion. Note: If you have kids, then you know why I carry Neosporin, band aids, etc.
Pencil pouch # 2 contains: A mini supply of planner goodies such as multiple pens, post its, scissors, etc.
Ipsy bag (gifted to me by a friend) holds my phone charger (not pictured as it was in the car), headphones, my ipod shuffle and nano.
My Planners – Kate Spade and the Happy Planner (the Kate Spade is for personal use and I use the Happy Planner to help me manage my blog)
Victoria’s Secret mini wristet holds my work ID and desk keys.
It’s crazy, I know! The truth is that I do use most of these things on a daily and weekly basis. I usually have my umbrella in there too but I left it in the car.
Now it’s your turn! Are you guilty of carrying just as much stuff if not more? I’d love to hear all about it so leave a comment below and please share just a few of the things that you carry because I know that I am not the only one. I can’t wait to read your responses!
Until next time…
