Monkey challenged me to a "what's in my bag?" post - I thought it would be fun! She did one as well, it's up over there and you should check it out! All I will say is it's very owl-tastic :)
Another fun thing is that when I opened the shades in our bedroom to get more light for the pictures I saw that it's SNOWING outside!!! This is the first time I've seen snow in many, many years. I'm so excited!!!!!! Can you tell?
I got it at a garage sale for $3 about 4 months ago, and I've carried it ever since. I used to change my purses quite a bit, but this one is just about perfect for me so I've kept carrying it. It's a wonderful leather with leather patchwork on the front (some of the patches are actually hairy and that's weird and gross to me, but I try not to think about them).
I subscribe to the "many little bags" theory of purse organization, mainly because I don't want little things getting lost in the bottom of my purse. Clockwise from left: marimekko purse, H&M zipper pouch, "loop" wallet. Within these are painkillers, pepto bismol (a wonder drug!), lip balm, hand sanitizer, lens wipes, lady products, etc.
And here's everything together, clockwise from left:
Top row: marimekko purse,h&m zipper pouch, moleskine and pen, tissues, sunglasses in case (don't need to carry those anymore for a few months)
second row: checkbook, wallet
third row: box of business cards for my blog/etsy store (you'd be amazed how often it comes up in conversation and then I can just give a card!), cell phone, badge for work.
Like Monkey, I usually also have a book but I don't really like the one I'm reading right now so I'm not carrying it around.
What do you carry in your bag every day?
