What's In Your Bag?
Advantages: my space
Disadvantages: i keep losing stuff in it!
It's true that a girls bag is a private place and that it feels like an intrusion even when there is nothing to hide. A discussion about this in my office revealed that many of my female colleagues feel the same.
My boyfriend just doesn't 'get it' though. He says what's the problem when he delves into my bag to get something i've been carrying around for him. True it's his stuff...but still.
So what do i have in there? Well, a purse stuffed with a loyalty card from every shop that ever offered me one. I have so many that just now when I was fishing in my purse to get my Subway loyalty card I had to prise open the card slots and take out another 5 from it's slot just to get to the card I actually wanted. I keep receipts from everything and only clear out when it becomes physically impossible to close my purse! I don't tend to carry much cash around and prefer to use my debit card. I find spare change just gets spent without regard otherwise!
I had a little notebook listing everything that i'm spending money one - literally everything! i'm saving to buy a house with the other half and therefore trying to get better at budgeting. Noting literally everything down really makes you think about what you spend.
A diary/address book - i do have the ability to have a diary on my iphone, and have switched to pretty much everything digital, but I can't quite do it with diaries!
Then there are the sundries...phone, pen, small packet of tissues, lip balm, paracetamol, lipgloss, small umbrella, more pens...and at the moment I have some cough sweets and a packet of cat milk drops that someone gave me for my cat because their cat doesn't like them...i really must take those out!
All in all, nothing remarkable or exciting...but it's still private boys!!
Summary: I wish I had mary poppins bag!
