what's in your bag?

themenow and wendye wanted to know what's in my bag. I'm fascinated by the contents of people's bags. A touch of voyeurism, I know, but at least it's pretty innocuous. Lifehacker actually had a series on "go bags" and it's always interesting to see how people's lifestyles are reflected in their "stuff." See, for example, the bag belonging to a (female) grad student, or to a prolific stay-at-home (male) blogger.

So here's what's in my bag. I didn't actually take a photo of the bag itself since it's not as interesting or character-revealing, I think. But here's the link on ebags.com (on sale!).



Top row: reusable bag from Target, planner, padfolio, umbrella + umbrella condom, hankie, cell phone, mp3 player
Middle row: emergency kit (with bandaids, wet wipes, a nail clipper, CPR stuff, etc.), wallet, card holder, keys, pens
Bottom row: makeup bag, reading material (May book club selection), pouch with kleenex inside, and smaller pouch with transit pass and key card

Notes: I usually add a water bottle and a snack. Also, I use the kleenex to blow my nose, and my hankie to dab my forehead. (If I dab with a kleenex, I often leave little bits of fiber on my face.)

I tend to lose my cell phone a lot though - I need to get a really obvious color next time.

I am pretty sure about half the contents of my bag is trash.

I love looking at the contents of people's bags. It tells a lot about them. When my step-sister would visit growing up, I would always ask to go through her purse because I was fascinated by all the girly stuff like make-up. It told me a lot about who she was at various times we were growing up.
