I never used to be a purse girl. I carried a diaper bag while my kids were little but beyond that I’ve always been about the bank card, the ID and a little bit of cash in a jacket pocket. Possibly in a wee clutch if I was going to a formal event. I’ve since learned the love of a good handbag and have added to the list of necessities.
As it was a slowish day at the market today my partner and I ended up having a brief conversation about essential carry-alongs. She divulged the number of her sewing kit collection, spread out about many bags. I admitted to needing my tape measure everywhere I go.
Upon returning home I thought I’d have a better look into this. I emptied my bag and found the following items:
a hot wheels car
my measuring tape
my jack knife
4 lipsticks in different colours
1 pot of lip balm
2 tubes of skin moisturizer
tissues (new and used)
3 safety pins
Is everyone else’s bag the dumping ground mine is? What’s in yours? Is there some age/bag size correlation? Who’s got a great system for staying more organized?
By the way, the bags in the pic above are made by Jeanne Bayol and I adore them. Were anyone to get one for me I would happily be your sex slave for 3 years.
