Day 4 of the National Health Blog Post Month Challenge: Sunday, November 4.
Prompt(s): Disclosure post. How did you decide what to share? What do/don’t you share? or Write about what’s in your bag / purse / backpack every day.
I made the assumption that those slashes symbolize the word “or” but for me the word should be “and”. Each day, when I walk out of my door, I leave with 3 bags – a purse, a work bag, and my gym bag. My husband jokingly refers to me as the “bag lady” and I often feel like a pack mule lugging so many bags, but each of them carries specific items that I need for the various aspects of my life. Here’s what I mean:
My purse – a small, compact bag that carries of the essentials that I need whether going to work, shopping, or being a super Mommy!
My purse essentials – A notepad and pen that I use to jot down grocery lists, blog post ideas, and other notes. My wallet complete with license, debit card, and those nifty little deal cards that I get at the stores I frequent. The small silver bag houses a compact and lipstick – the 2 makeup items I always leave the house wearing.
This bag was my gift to myself to celebrate my new job! I had never owned a real leather bag before this one. I love that it is big enough to hold various work files, but does not feel bulky. It has also been known to double as a school bag for my daughter.
The work bag is sometimes filled to the brim and other times it is fairly empty. But these three items ( a legal pad & pen, my planner, and file folder) reside in it each day.
The last bag that I carry is my gym bag! I pack it each night so that I have no excuse not to make my workouts!
The gym bag is packed with sneakers, at least 2 workout outfits, a few pairs of socks, my mp3 player, spare earphones, weight lifting gloves and a protein bar or two.
What about you – do you carry a purse, a briefcase, bookbag, a gym bag? What essentials do you keep in your bag(s)?
