What’s in my bag?
I am always curious about what people carry in their bags. Notice I said people, not just women. It really sparks my curiosity when I see a man carrying a bag. What could he possibly need to carry around all the time?
One of my old roommates would carry a huge purse, and it was a catch all for everything! I saw her pull so much weird stuff out of it, things like dog toys, socks, and even fish food. It reminded me of Phoebe on Friends when she pulls a gold fish out of her purse! I guess at least she was always prepared!
I tend to carry a smaller purse because if I don’t, I will fill up a big purse. I don’t know why it works like that, but I carry more stuff when I carry a big purse.
So, what are the necessities that I can’t go anywhere without?
The first thing I do not go anywhere without is hand sanitizer! I am a germaphobic! I have tons of small bottles and I keep one in every purse I carry.
I also have a tide pen with me. Jeremy can be a little accident prone when it comes to dripping food on his shirt or pants, so the tide pen comes in very handy.
Victoria’s Secret lip gloss – this is THE BEST lip gloss I have ever used! My favorites are the Strawberry Fizz and Juiced Berry.
Burt’s Bees and Sunscreen chapstick – I can’t stand to have dry or chapped lips. Plus, I sit outside a lot of ballgames, so I always make sure I have sunscreen so my lips don’t burn.
I always have hair ties – just in case!
Granola bars – We are on the go all the time, and sometimes I need a snack. I would rather have a granola bar with me so I don’t get tempted to run through a drive thru for something.
Gum & mints – you always need fresh breath!
Eye drops – I can’t stand it when my eyes get dry. They start to itch, and my contacts hurt. So, I always have eye drops with me so I can avoid that!
I make sure to carry earbuds with me. I go to lots of baseball and basketball games that Jeremy officiates, and I can’t stand to listen to people yell at him. So, I always have headphones so I can tune them out.
What are the necessities that you carry in your purse or bag?? I’m really curious!
