What's In Your Bag?
Advantages: I have all the basics!
Disadvantages: I still can't work out what I don't need
I always wonder at people who come into work with tiny bags and can't believe how they've managed to fit everything into something so small. So when I saw this thread, I thought this would be a great opportunity to find out just what I carry around with my that makes my bag so heavy and maybe remove some of the items for good. And this is what I found:
Purse, phone, keys, Oyster Card, work swipe card, book (Stephen Fry - Moab is my washpot (which I've at last got round to reading having got it for my birthday 3 years ago!)), empty lunchbox, deodorant, leopard print umbrella, mascara, 27p in 1p's and 2p's, ibuprofen, hayfever tablets, vaseline, 1 chop stick (no idea where that came from), 18 receipts from various purchases, 2 pairs of tights, 1 empty packet of tissues, polos, 5 pens and a few peices of a puzzle which I got in a kinder egg once.
Unfortunately from that list I've not managed to slim down my bag much at all...I've taken out the 27p and put it in my piggy bank, put the old receipts in the bin along with the puzzle pieces and chop stick and decided that carrying just 1 pen would be suffiecient. Especially as after testing them, I found that 3 didn't actually work. I also took out the tights as I'm wearing tights every day to work anyway so it seems silly carrying an extra pair in my bag when I have an emergency pair in my desk anyway. I've also replaced the empty pack of tissues with a full one.
I'm actually quite disappointed with the boring-ness of my handbag. And I'm still yet to solve the mystery of where the people with bags a half the size of mine are carrying all this stuff! if it's taught me nothing else, it's that I should stop hoarding old receipts and broken pens.
Summary: The contents of my bag is exceedingly boring.
