What's in yer bag, lady?

on Jun 16, 2010 @ 03:08 am

I had to take a look through my bag today, hunting for something. As a result, I suddenly realized how much STUFF I keep in there and lug around with me. My bag is actually not a bag at all. It's more like a carry-on, or a bloody suitcase haha :-)

Dear mother of god, I really have a lot of crap in there! Anybody else have this obvious need to be absolutely, neurotically prepared for everything that might happen while out of the confines of home?? Or is this just me and my own personal craziness?? It doesn't seem like much when I transfer it all from bag to bag, but when I actually list it, it's nuts.....and then I suddenly notice, I might need some Q-tips some time, and a few makeup remover wipes, etc etc etc. I want to add to this?? hahaha I'm insane! Seriosuly, who needs all this stuff?? Apparently, ME!

HA HA this is one of the funniest posts I have ever read. I feel your pain satojoko, really I do. I just asked my friend yesterday to hold my purse and tell me if its too heavy. Her response? Do you NEED all of that stuff?

Me: Yes, yes I do. I need to be prepared for anything. Someone lactose intolerant and want to eat ice cream? I'm there for you, I have dairy digestive pills don't you worry!!! (Am I lactose intolerant you ask, no, no I am not LOL)

For the fun of it I will list what I have in my purse too because I think its going to be a humorous exercise (But for the record I would like to state that my purse EMPTY is kind of heavy ... you know the kind? But it was just so gorgeous that I could not NOT buy it ha ha). So without further ado:

1 package of Kleenex

1 compact mirror

my iPod touch

1 bottle of Purelle

1 pack of 5 gum

my wallet

my keys

a ttc token holder

1 four way nail file/buffer

1 tide pen

1 tube of Fruits and Passion roll on perfume

1 nail file (why I have two, I have no idea!)

my go train ten-ride pass

a pill box containing: Advil liqui-gels, gravol, the aforementioned dairy digestive pills, Benadryl (WHAT IF someone breaks out in hives?!) and tums

1 tube herbacin kamille hand cream

1 tin of mints

pharma plus blotting papers

birth control pills

6 (count em!) 6 large and small safety pins

3 bobby pins

2 hair bands

2 hair clips

1 joe fresh lip stain

1 tube benetint

1 tube co bigelow cinnamint lip gloss

1 pot sephora complete lip balm

3 tubes burts bees lip balm (original, honey AND pomegranate)

1 tube burts bees lip shimmer (in watermelon)

1 body shop lipstick

1 tube body shop tea tree oil cover stick

1 tube quo pleasant surprise lip gloss

AND last but not least:

my oversized sunglasses case

Wow. ha ha ha ... insane. I wonder how much all this weighs? Not to mention I also usually carry my 18oz Kleen Kanteen in there too. I'm gonna guess about 5 pounds...

Haha! on Jun 16, 2010 @ 09:57 am

Wow that's way more stuff than I expected!!


I don't know how you ladies do it! on Jun 16, 2010 @ 10:20 am

I think my arm would fall off with all that stuff. LOL

This is what's in my bag:

Small Wallet (containing: money, driver's license and debit card)
Softlips SPF 20 lip balm (strawberry)
CG pressed powder compact
Pocket-sized comb
3) OB Tampons (in small case)

1) Small paperclip (How'd that get in there?)


Wow! on Jun 16, 2010 @ 10:24 am

satojoko & curlysue10: Your bags must be huge to carry all that! I also like your idea of bringing disposable toilet seat covers! I'm sure all of us wished we had some at one point.

Here's what I have in my bag:

Benefit & YSL Lipgloss
Burt's Bees Lip Balm
Anna Sui Mirror
Make Up For Ever Concealer
Clean & Clear Oil Blotters
Listerine Pocketpak
Hair Elastic
Reusable Bag
Dr. Scholl's For Her Rub Relief Strips
Train stubs

I forgot... on Jun 16, 2010 @ 10:34 am

To mention my listerine pocket packs. I couldn't live without those babies. I got a key chain holder once when I bought the 3 pack. You better believe its hooked onto my keychain lol

And actually my bag isn't huge surprisingly ... I have the My Tagalongs Purse Oneifier. Everything is so neat and organized, I don't actually need a huge bag to carry all that stuff.

Looking at my list though I think I'm going to take out some of those lip products lol ... I only have one set of lips!!!

That is a lot of stuff on Jun 17, 2010 @ 10:08 pm

Wow, that is a lot of stuff some of you girls have! I guess you're one of the girls I see on the street sometimes carrying a very large bag.

I don't carry too much unless I'm going to work. I have my work bag and then when I go out.

For work I normally have:
-3 sets of keys (house, car, work)
-sometimes my laptop and then laptop adaptor
-small comb
-pencil and pen
-power foundation
-bottle of water

If I'm going out I'll usually have:
-house keys
-pads/tampons (if necessary)
-power foundation
-maybe water bottle
-sometimes iPod

I like to keep things light and only take what I need or else I can never find anything and it's too heavy.

my purse is always heavy on Jun 18, 2010 @ 06:52 pm

I don't think my list is quite as extensive as some of you girls, but let's see!

- wallet
- change purse
- cell
- keys
- 1 colour lipstick
- 2 lipbalms
- ID badge for work
- book
- sample size lotion
- hand lotion
- USB key
- 2 pkg travel size kleenex
- headphones for cell
- bus pass
- 2 hair pins
- 1 hair elastics
- a bag of toddler crackers
- a pair of toddler socks
- toddler hat
- random receipts
- parking ticket (Yikes! needs to be paid)
- a warning ticket (another yikes!)
- bandaids
- camera
- empty (used) ziploc bag

Mmm...ok, I guess my list is pretty long too. :P I should clean out my purse, especially need to do something about that parking ticket. :P

I think I have the shortest list.... on Jun 18, 2010 @ 08:02 pm

coin purse
