I absolutely love bloggers’ posts about what they carry in their bags. I think it’s interesting to see what everyone’s must-have items are! I’ve wanted to do a post like this for awhile, and actually took these photos a few months ago, but never got around to getting this up. Ironically enough, I just switched back to this bag for work, because I know I’ll be carrying a few extra things with me this week.
I carry a lot in my bag. Since my day is so long, I always like being prepared! I guess that’s the Girl Scout in me. My co-workers actually call my bag a “Mary Poppins” bag, because I always have whatever they need– usually a bandaid, gum, or sometimes even straws. I took a full picture of all of the items in my bag, and then individual photos of some of the different categories of what I carry.
Here’s the big picture of what I carry everyday. This doesn’t include my lunch bag and a pair of flats if I’m wearing heels that day.
I’ll start from the left:
Tech gloves || It’s wayy to cold not to use them, and I always need to be able to check my phone to see if my bus is coming!
Metro Card, house key, car keys & wallet || I couldn’t get to the city without these. I also drive to the bus stop, so that’s why I need my car keys too.
Electronics: iPhone charger, Mophie phone case, Mophie charger, headphones, camera, and iPhone camera clicker || I always need my phone charger, especially after using my phone for a long bus ride. The Mophie case is perfect for when I go out after work or a night out in the city. Headphones– need I say why? For bus rides or when I need to zone out at work, I’m always using them multiple times a day. I’ve started carrying all of my electronics in a small Victoria’s Secret clutch that I have.
Notebooks & Pens: Work to-do pad, work notebook, personal notebook, magazine, bus schedule, and pens. || These are things I find myself using everyday. I am a visual person, so written-out to-do lists are a must for me. Teen Vogue was always one of my favorite magazines, and I like keeping a small magazine on me for long subway rides.
Miscellaneous : Gum, mints, cough drops, cereal bar, water, Crystal Lite lemonade pack, tissues || You don’t want to see me when I’m hangry, so I always have a cereal bar in my bag for my ride home from work if I get hungry. Water, because I’m always afraid to commute without it, Crystal lite packets to flavor up a drink (also a GREAT mixer, just sayin’ 😉 ).
Sunglasses || I got these from my parents for graduation and they are my FAVORITE. I don’t wear them all the time now, since its not as sunny, but I like to carry them just in case.
Not included in these photos is my iPad which I often carry to write blog posts or catching up on what I’m watching on Netflix.
Hope you liked seeing what’s in my bag!
