Everyday Necessities

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.

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.
