My bag...

Yesterday morning I had the great idea of cleaning out my bag. This is what was inside.


I really like my bag and it not just because Brangelina use to have the same one!

I like it for a couple of reasons.

1. It fits a lot of stuff - as demonstrated above! Plus is has a lot of compartments and secret places to organise things - possibly too many things.
2. It was present to myself for not having an epidural with Goofy - a well done me present! It was a little pricey but I figure I had saved money by not using the drugs so treated myself. (No such present after the other two labours!)

You may be pleased to know that not as much went into the bag as what came out. After 5 and a half years you would think that I would have figured out what how to carry around only the necessities so that i don't end up walking with a lean in my later years!

At a bare minimum I need wallet, keys, phone to walk out the door. For a trip to the shops the list then lengthens to include nappies, wipes, chuck rag (JollyJumper is still chucking up a storm), bib, snacks, baby toy. This is just my minimum though, there is always a lot more but are they essential?

What are the essentials in your daily bag?

  1. I keep it lean. Way too lean some would say because I never have anything when the unexpected happens! Just my essentials and a couple of nappies, wipes and a snack or two. I am impressed with the load that came out of your bag though - it is a tradis!
