What's in your bag?

I think one person's bag is one person's world. Here is a selective list of items in my bag: 1. Wallet there is British currency, bank debit card and credit card. There are also membership cards of the National Trust and English Heritage, a library membership card, a National Insurance card and a Nectar card. 2.Coin pocket Because in the UK coins are used regularly, a small coin pocket has been added to my bag. 3.Sunglasses Because there are not many sunny days in the UK I use sunglasses mostly for style, and not for practical purposes as I did in Beijing. 4.Umbrella This country really has a lot more rain than I thought. 5.Camera I like taking photos especially in the UK. I keep seeing many beautiful views so I always take my camera with me wherever I go. 6.Dictionary I always make sure it's in my bag. If I'm stuck in a queue, riding on a bus or eating sandwiches in a park I can take it out and have a quick read. 7. A bottle of water Because I don't drink coffee or tea I don't feel very comfortable when I'm in café or tea room. If I go out I always take a bottle of water with me. It's convenient and economical, not to mention healthy. 8. Make-up bag My make-up bag is a small one that just has a lipstick, a bag of facial tissue, some hand cream plus a mirror. 9. Mobile phone Here I don't have many social connections yet so my mobile phone is not used much, but out of habit I put it in my bag just in case. 10. Map After getting lost twice I have learnt to always put a local map in my bag before I go out. So you can see my simpler life has led to a more complicated bag. What's in your bag?

I try not to overpack my bag because then it's difficult to find stuff and bulky bags don't always look fabulous. I always carry: 1) My wallet - definitely the most important thing, worse comes to worse you can always call a cab and get home. 2) My phone - pretty self-explanatory, for emergencies and meeting up with people and stuff; it also doubles as a camera 3) A pack of tissues - because you never know when you might need them...blood noses, dirty things, a runny nose 4) Lipgloss/mascara combo tube 5) Keys (car, house & miscellaneous) 6) iPod I think that pretty well sums up everything that I NEED to carry in my bag everywhere. I also like to carry around a notepad & pencil if I get hit with a sudden burst of inspiration, but this isn't a necessity in my handbag.

Hello! I have way too much in my purse which is more like a bag . I used to have this huge Mets tote bag and everyone would ask what the heck is that and I had everything in that LOL. Now in my blue med size flower bag I carry: my head phones for when I am walking ;) I have my sunglasses in there unless they are on the top of my head. I have a wallet of course, makeup bag, some meds, and perfume and lotion . Also a brush and some headbands and pony tail holders. I do carry my book with me that I am reading at that moment. Always gotta have my paper and pen because I am always writing something (poems so much) I have many ticket stubs from sporting events and concerts and even some last year when I was in Nyc and went to Shea Goodbye ;) I have a map of Nyc still somewhere in the purse and gum , mints, and who knows what else ;) It is a world of goodies ....
