What's in your Bag?

        Guys, I'm probably going to have some serious back problems when I get older because I am constantly carrying my entire life with me in my purse. I'm guilty of the "well what if I need it?!" mentality and my purse can be quite heavy. I've been trying to be better, I recently took out my digital camera that I used to tug around with me just in case I needed to take a picture, and have been relying more on my iPhone. I've also been better about keeping different bags for different occasions, I have a "pool bag" which is constantly packed with a bathing suit, towel and magazines so I'm not lugging that stuff around with me in my purse. Unfortunately since I'm a big bag lover I don't think I'll ever fully get over my carry everything trend. 
      You know how some magazines feature an article on "Whats in _________ (random celebrity's) Purse?" Well I have decided to do a similar post to highlight what I keep in my bag on a daily bases. 
Here are some highlights of my purse:
  1. My wallet obviously, I got it at the Kate Spade outlet a couple of years ago for super cheap. It's metallic with little spades on it, I really wanted a wallet I could use all year long because before I had a summer wallet and a winter wallet, but the metallic transitions well no matter what the season.
  2. (Sun)glasses. I always keep two pairs of sunglasses in my bag at a time because depending on my mood or outfit different pairs work on different days. I also have a spare pair of regular glasses in case I forget mine at home and have to read something far away like a Panera menu board.
  3. Coupons. I always have so many coupons in my bag, the second they come in the mail I immediately cut them out and put them in my bag. I get so mad when I'm randomly out at the mall and realize I left a coupon I need at home. It's gotten a lot better now that coupons get emailed to me but some stores still go with the basic paper coupon. 
  4. Random necessities. I keep that striped Coach wristlet that I got when I was in high school in my bag to hold all my random neccessities. Some of my random necessities include a pill box holding some Advil, chap stick, pens, mirrors, hand lotion and a mini sewing kit. The sewing kit seems weird but I cant tell you how many times in college we randomly needed a needle and thread.
  5. Accessories. I normally will have a bracelet or two in my purse because I take them off at some point and never take them out of my purse. This ends up being a positive when I need a costume change!
  6. Keys. I'm one of those crazy people with 10 different keys on their rings. I have keys to my house, my car, all of my parents cars, and keys to all of my aunts and uncles houses. It seems weird but I'm guilty of showing up to their house to lie by the pool and I sometimes need to get in the house. 
What's in your bag? 
Do you hoard like I do?


  1. I am the exact same way haha. I carry everything with me! I have been thinking about doing a video on whats in my bag!


  2. I carry way to much in my bag too. Lets see...I usually have 2 or 3 pairs of sunglasses, wallet, change purse, compact mirror, phone, keys, lipsticks/lipgloss/Chapstick galore, make up, water bottle, book...that's usually what I carry in my bag. By the way I love you bag and Kate spade wallet! I have a metallic Kate spade wallet as well and love it, great for every season!


    1. At least I know I'm not alone. Thanks for the compliment!

  3. Such a good post! A mini sewing kit is genius! Wish I thought of that!

  5. I am definitely going to have back problems also. My husband gets so mad that I carry everything. You never know when you are going to need something. I probably hoard more makeup that I can actually put on my face. we are talking like 5 lipsticks and 5 different types of eyeliner is a terrible habit.
