Hello, I always carrying a body bag cause this one is very comfortable to bring anywhere I go. I always check if I have my powder, hand sanitizer, cellphone, folding fan "cause it's hot here in the Philippines", ball pen, small note book and a little face mirror inside my bag. I got irritated when I forgot to bring my mirror with me, I used to look my self in the mirror when I'm on the bus, or in any public vehicle. Just curious what about you guys, What size or type of bag you have? & I want to know what you guys have on your bag and the most important thing that makes you feel uncomfortable if you forgot to bring it with you. Post it here & we can compare what's the difference of man's & ladies bag.

Well I have massive bags so I always carry loads of stuff around with me. The stuff I could not leave without would be: Hand Sanitizer, phone, I-pod, gum, diet coke, make up bag, bobbles and hair slides, my purse, my umbrella and a magazine. Then I carry additonal stuff but that is stuff I do not need all the time like books for uni, pencil case etc. My bags always stretch and rip at the handles and I have the cheek to wonder why :D .

Hi elieella Nice username! I'm a lady and beside my wallet and cellphone, I always carry a small pencil case inside my bag. I put my medicine, contact lenses solution, powder, oil paper and perfume into it! Well, of course I can life and go to anywhere without bring that items, but if I don't bring my pencil case with all my 'goods' inside it, I will feel something not complete and wrong. Honestly, I rarely use perfume, but just bring it in case I need to appear neat, tidy and good-smelling in little time,,hehe

I carryied a bag everywhere I would go before, but not now! I fond it's so boring, because when you want to go out, you must think about which clothes macth this bag, and you want to put more and more things in the little bag so that it's so heavy! Now, I don't carry a bag, I feel good!

Hi elieella! I'm not a guy but I guess I can respond to your post? Hehehehe! :D Anyhoo, I have eight "standard" things that I always make sure are in my bag. These are: 1. Money 2. Key 3. Phone 4. Comb 5. Watch 6. Hanky 7. Scrunchy 8. I.D. I have these eight memorized and as long as these are present then I'm ready to go, literally, anywhere. ;) However, I also do have some other "extras" that I also put in my bag, depending on where I'm going and how long I'd be gone. These are: 1. my compact powder 2. eyeliner 3. lipstick 4. folding fan ;) 5. cologne/perfume 6. umbrella 7. mint gum I guess the most important thing among all these is the Money. I'd be stupid if I'm not able bring it, for sure I'm not gonna be able to go back home without it, LOL

I think it would be my wallet. If I lose that than it cost alot of money to replace everything in it. Cellphones are easy to replace and call about if you carry that extra $5 monthly insurance it is worth it. My husband had to replace his $200 phone and it only costs $50.

I don't carry any bag if I will go on travel. I will not bring anything for me inside public vehicles. I feel so uncomfortable enough if carried bag. Have a nice day!

I just recently asked this question to myself. I just can not explain the necessidy of carry all the stuff i do in my bag. I bet guys laugh at us because they only have a wallet. I used to carry a large purse then when my daughter was in jr high she convince me a small belt purse is better. Then she started having kids and i notice she now carried a large purse while i stiil had the small one. Then i stared riding the bus and so then i needed a larger one, in fact a backpack. With a small one to carry the valuables. So now for me its either the back pack w/small essential valuables. Or just one large one. It all depends on the mission.

wow. My bag is a small backpack/purse. I have so much stuff in there. I just emptied lots out last month and still i seems heavy. I have my wallet and all my credit cards. Some change. I carry my hairbrush and medications. some I need everyday and some I carry just in case I might need them like a BIG bottle of Ibuprofen. I have A Calendar in my purse -it is actually intended to be a small wall calendar with some cute puppy pictures :) I have old check stubs I have an envelope I save them all in. My Check book. A pen or two, my cell phone (although sometimes that is in my pocket. I sometimes have a snack in there or a water bottle (I never go anywhere with my water.. :) I have a spare toothbrush and floss -i got this from my dentist but I leave it in my purse. And I know there is more that I am forgetting. But whenever some one needs something they always ask if I have some.. :)

Hi, I carry one of those big bags, where I can throw everything inside. I usually check to make sure that my wallet (ID, driving licence, credit cards, money) and handphone are inside. The rest of the stuff is of secondary importance - tissues, compact powder, notebook, pens.....not sure what else!

Good question. I think the one thing I always pack is my Beatles 'Abbey Road' cd. I know this one thing is certain, if I am on a plane, to or from, I will listen to it at least one each way. I think the song, 'Because' always reminds me of flying and clouds. Ok, that's just me.
