What’s In My Bag

I always love those behind the scene posts about how someone sets up their workflow, what their daily routine looks like, what’s one their phone, etc.

It’s been a long time, but I thought it would be fun to do another post on

What’s in my Bag

This is the purse/bag I carry daily:

My pattern is discontinued, but I love this bag so much. I’m thinking about getting another one. It is originally designed as a workout/gym bag – you can fit your yoga mat through specially designed compartments – but it works SO well for an every day bag. I use the shoulder straps, but also wear it as a backpack, regularly.

When going to work I always have a bottle for water (this bottle is 33.8 oz – too obnoxious to carry regularly, but perfect for keeping at my desk) and one filled with my cold brew coffee.

  1. American Girl coupon passport book
  2. Great American Cookies coupons
  3. Keys – vehicle, house, etc.
  4. Wallet (similar) – I’ve had it for years and it’s starting to fall apart. Time to go shopping!
  5. Lego Harry Potter World blind bags – specifically I have Ron, Draco, and Newt (with Niffler) at the moment
  6. Chopsticks for MyChild (the joining part is in Pouch B [below])
  7. Battery back up – MyHusband decided I need this. He was right. My Samsung Galaxy 8s Plus uses up only a quarter of a fully charged pack to get from 3% to 100%. MyChild’s Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet uses ½ of a fully charged pack. Worth it!
  8. Necessary cord for charger to tablet. Has since been replace with this AMAZING tool.
  9. Blank notebook for whatever
  10. File folder (similar). Apparently, I was moving papers at this time.
  11. Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter – yep, it came out of a Starbucks Egg and Cheese Protein box
  12. 10 Fat Turkeys – on its own this is a hilarious book. Why it was in my bag? Your guess is as good as mine. #momlife
  13. Workout headphones – Jaybird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  14. HP Spectre Laptop – I love this thing. It’s so narrow, is a touch screen, and can be used as a tablet. #pc4life
  15. Birthday party invite for a classmate of MyChild
  16. Clinique Pop Splash Lip Gloss in 08 Tenderheart (large) and 03 Sorbet Pop (small)
  17. Children’s Benadryl – because even this dosage makes me sleepy
  18. Usborne Books Fingerprint People
  19. Advil Cold and Sinus (you have to get this from the pharmacist) – the only thing that works when I have a cold. #pseudophedrineforlife #NOphenylphedrine
  20. My Bullet Journal – Leuchtturm 1917 in ice blue
  21. Sunglasses – DIFF Cruz Gold + Pink Mirror Lens
  22. Keys to MyHusband’s car
  23. Back up sunglasses from Disney World – SO scratched and crappy, but they’ll do in a pinch
  24. Random hair-ties
  25. Extra necklace – most likely one that I didn’t like half-way through the day
  26. Boogie Wipes – lifesavers!!! at any age. Big perk – they don’t leave any residue
  27. Children’s Museum of Houston Swiss Army Binoculars
  28. Tiny rubix cube MyChild got in a birthday party grab/thank you bag
  29. Travel pack of Kleenex
  30. MyChild’s necklace – it’s a cat face. She wanted a book from the bookfair just to get this necklace.

  32. Doesn’t everyone have random beads?
  33. Stylus for MyChild’s tablet
  34. Tablet case
Pouch A, inside my Lily Bag
  1. Headphones – came with my Galaxy S8+. They are my favorite headphones ever.
