Somebody asked me that question and I smiled. She returned I big smile after I told her what are inside it. I work everyday from 8am to 5pm in the day. I shift to my sideline work at six and goes home at 10pm. Because I always drive a motorcycle, I have to carry my bag everytime. And what do I have in there? I have my raincoat for the unexpected rain. I have a jacket to prevent my skin from the burning heat of the sun in noontime and to keep me warm in night drive. A bottle of water, my wallet, documents, medicines, perfume, pen, sunglasses, tools. I guess I forgot something, but those were the things I should be carrying everytime I go out and have to drive. I just wish it's a car not a bike so I don't have to carry those things everytime... Do you go out like I do and carry a bag full of personal items and other protective gadgets like I do?

Hello, I am just sitting here wondering how big your bag must be to fit in all those items. They are needed , but it must be a pain in the bum to carry all that. I usually have a jacket, cds that are burt, and a unbrella in the car. In my purse now that is where you will find all of my junk . I suppose it is all girly type of things. I was never one to carry a small purse . Let's see what you would find in mine : Makeup bag, perfume, gum , mints,water, paper , pens, wallet, ball game ticket stubs ,a book, sunglasses,brush, meds,and last my camera . I am sure I left out a bunch of items, I am always adding into my bag !!

Whenever I go out, I don't bring a big bag with me. I just have a shoulder bag with my wallet, powder, eyeliner, lipstick, comb and I will never forget my perfume. Just the usual stuff a woman would bring. But when I go out with my kids, of course I bring extra shirts and a towel for them.

So you have everything there. Including perfume and a bottle of water? You must be a good boyscout when you were a kid, always ready,. I really dont have a bag. I am not used to it. This time I just got my two mobile in my pocket and my wallet, no ballpen and others.

Well, it's good that you are prepared. Not everyone would be so smart. Glad that you are. When I go out, I have to carry a big bag too. It has all my stuff. It's easier now that my daughter is not a baby. Before we had to carry almost everything just in case she needed it.

you brought the whole house every time you go out for work. LOL. i go out everyday because i am a student so expected that you found in my bags different kinds of book for my subjects, of course a ball pen, paper and sometimes a small purse that i put my 3 cellphones. But when i go out for a climb, it's really a big deal because i bring the whole house in the mountain. A tent for my shelter, kitchen utensils to cook my foods, foods and clothing's. too heavy sometimes specially if it is a major climb staying more days on the mountain.
