What's in YOUR bag?

Jess and Abbie did it, so of course I want to do it too! :) Here's what's in my day bag. Now, typically I think this is for purses, but I've not had a purse since my Kate Spade days... and I can't afford that anymore. Actually, when I got Nola a couple of years ago (ahh, it's been that long already?!) I started carrying a bag in addition to my pocketbook (purse, whatever...), then I realized I just needed a better bag. Introduce this awesome sling! Actually, I've had a couple in between that I've loved. Mountainsmith makes a really good one that I've used. It has a rubber bottom so if anything spills you can just fill it up with water, rinse, and voila - new again! Anyway... what's inside? What isn't!? This isn't bad actually, I used to cram all sorts of stuff in there.

-Wet Ones wet wipes (I have a few types, you can never have enough!)
-Nail file, nail clippers, comb, lotion, chapstick, lipstick, facial moisturizer travel sized
-Japanese rice paper mom brought back from Japan last summer
-Market bag rolled up
-Poop bags (Always a must have!)
-Note pad, pen (Seriously, I only had one pen in there?! I usually have at least 8!)
-Extra dog collar (Left over from trip to the mountains last weekend.)
-Hair bands
-Granola bars (Restocked weekly.)

So, what's in YOUR bag?

You are the 2nd person who has done this that had an umbrella in their bag. BRILLIANT! I am the one that always has it in the trunk so that I would have to get out of the car in the rain to even get it so I just don't bother. I briefly considered adding that to my bag of tricks, also known as my purse but then thought that I work from home and that is kind of silly even if it is a great idea. And I'm rambling so I am off...

Oh I love this idea! I couldn't help but smile as I read your post because I am HUGE Kate Spade fan! All of my KS's have been gifts or acquired via Ebay. It's my one "materialistic" indulgence. Though they aren't quite as sassy these days when they contain used tissues and nappies, it is hard to depart with the one last thing from my life before motherhood.

Anyway, I think I am going to borrow your idea for my blog later in the week.

Big hugs!

How fun! So the rice paper-you making origami in your spare time?
