Today I’m sharing with you the things that I carry around with me in my bag on a day-to-day basis. I believe that a lot can be learned about a person and the content of their bag, plus I thought it would be fun to share the content of my bag. I may make this into a quarterly post as it may be interesting to see if what is in my bag changes from season to season or from bag to bag, what do you think?
My bag is from Artsac. I bought it a few months ago, at the end of January along with another bag (which I wrote about here). Despite that the bag is nylon it has been my go to bag since I purchased it, originally I didn’t want a bag that was nylon as I was worried about how long it would last and how it would wear but I’m pleased to report that it’s not showing any marks or scuffs at all! What has surprised me is how much I can fit into it and still have room for more! There are 2 main zip compartments that span the width of the bag and are accessible from the top, one has 2 little slip pockets inside it, the other has a small, zipped pocket which has a square, red Artsac label stitched to it. At the back of the bag there is a zipped pocket that runs the length of the bag and would accommodate important documents. At the front of the bag is a flap that has 2 zippered compartments, the right side pocket has Artsac branding in the form of a colour coordinated rubber square on it. Under the flap is another zippered section that is about an inch shorter than the height of the bag but runs the full length.
First is a look into what I keep in the 2 main zippered compartments…
In the back main compartment is my kindle. In the other main compartment I have my Filofax Malden, my Kate Spade pencil-case, a Minions Moleskine notebook, and my Bright Side blog and social media planner.
The front flap pockets usually hold my business card holder and my entry fob for work (not shown).
In the compartment under the flap top I keep my purse, lipsticks, lip balm, perfume, a pouch with gemstones in it (currently moonstone, blue lace agate, rose quartz and hematite), hand warmers and a lip crayon. Not shown are my mobile which I was using to take these photos, or my house or car keys.
I don’t tend to use the pocket across the back of the bag very much though I find it useful for letters that need sending, any important info I need with me for the day and for keeping my repeat prescription in before I take it to the pharmacy. I also don’t really use the inside slip pockets that much, or the zipped inside pocket though they are useful for putting tissues in or my trolley token when I am planning to go shopping.
At the beginning of this post I said that I believed a lot could be learned about a person and the contents of their bag, what do you think you have learned about me? What could be learned about the contents of your bag?
