Today, I decided to clean out my bag. Mainly, I was bored. When I’m bored, I clean. You can tell by the state of my house I don’t get bored often. So, let’s dive in and show you what I carry around with me.
This bag came from my mom. When my standard operating back pack from work broke on our second day at Disney World, Mom hooked me up with this little thing. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bag this small. I’m not really a purse chick. Messenger bags are OK. Anything that goes across my body is preferable. Harder to steal. I grew up in Philly. I don’t trust society in general.
This is the inside. It’s stuffed full. That’s why I need to clean it out.
This is my new wallet. Or card holder. I lost my Stitch wallet in my house a month ago. We have literally flipped the couch upside down looking for it. Still,no wallet. So, I’m using this one. It was gifted to me over the holidays and I just love it so much. I mean, look at that sweet little face.
Hey! There’s my lip balm. It’s not compact or made for travel but look how cute this is. And it’s blueberry flavored. Bonus nachos, it kind of has a blue tint to it and blue lips are pretty awesome.
This is my life. I love my planner. It has a section for all my things. I don’t forget anything this. And, I always know I have writing prompt in case I get a case of writer’s block.
Oh, hey! I need to get this paper work turned in. The Bunny has decided she wants to go back to public school. Instead of just dropping her off at the steps on the first day, I thought it would be best to give her an acclimation period. Plus, this will help the school place her in the right classes. Again, bonus nachos.
Oh my gosh! I love these pens. They were gifted to me for the holidays, but I didn’t get them until close to Valentine’s Day. They really do smell fruity and the color changing ink is so pretty.
I always have a notebook with me. I will write in a box. I will write with a fox. I will write in a car. Words and ideas, here they are. And giraffes are amazing. I watched April the Giraffe not give birth for three months. That’s commitment. Or a sign I need to be committed. Oh, well.
Because, why wouldn’t I have a random spoon in my bag. It’s probably from my December trip to Walt Disney World. Does it count as a souvenir?
Regular pens, one blue and one black. Because not everyone thinks multi colored, fruit scented pens are appropriate for paper work.
These are my story cards. Even though I haven’t published “Mr. Christmas” yet, I’m already working on the next project. Eventually, these will go up on my wall so I can plot everything out in order. This makes participating in Nanowrimo a little easier. But, that’sa blog for another day.
What I didn’t show you is my temporary driver’s license or my birth certificate. Because those are just not anything you need to see.

So, what’s in your bag? Do you have anything strange or unusual that other people probably wouln’t have?
