What’s in My Bag?

I believe we can tell a little bit about each other by what we carry in our bags.  I like to keep mine well-organized, but it doesn’t always stay that way.  Every few weeks I have to empty everything out, and get rid of unnecessary papers, receipts, trash, and old snacks for James.  After a thorough purse purge, I feel 10 times better!

Here’s a peek at my “must-haves” that I always carry in my bag:

1 Tory Burch Tote
2 Tory Burch pink Wallet
3 Blog business cards via Made By Girl
4 Kleenex
5 Curel hand lotion 
6 Toothbrush and Toothpaste 
7 Mascara for touch-ups
8 Michael Kors gold makeup case
9 Juicy Tubes lip gloss
10 iPhone with Tory Burch case
11 Notepad and Papermate pens (my fave!)
I think the only thing I left out was my favorite Sugarfree Bubble Yum gum, which I buy several at a time, although I don’t like to chew it very long.  Just enough to keep me from eating dessert after lunch everyday.

  1. You would shriek in horror if you saw what's in my bag. It's like the great abyss! I should do a post on that. . . 🙂 You're always so stylish.

  2. Good stuff…and such pretty bags and wallet!! mine is a wreck! I have the same notepads 🙂

  3. I love how everything is so coordinated. This look similar to my bag except that I have a brush and a "card caddy" thing for frequent customer cards, coupons, etc.

  4. I am super snoopy with other people's handbags so I LOVE this!!! Your TB wallet is adorable. Thank you so much for the sweet shout out to J & M. You are awesome.

  5. When I was single and crazy (with no kiddos) I had a HUGE purse. After daughter number one, my purse shrunk to a mid size. Now that I have two little girls I carry the smallest handbag Coach makes, lol. The only think I carry aside from standard purse stuff (wallet, coin purse, keys, iPhone w/ baby proof OtterBox case etc.) is Burt's Bees all natural tinted lip balm and BB's almond milk hand cream. LOOOOVE that stuff! Your purse is adorable! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. I love all of your bag goodies. I wish I could say mine was that neat….Mine is filled with receipts. Thanks for inspiring me to clean out my bag. Happy Monday!

  7. World's most organised bag award! I wish I could part with all the things in my bag I really don't need everyday! Never thought to carry toothpaste and a toothbrush though, I guess it'd come in pretty useful, thanks for the inspiration! Consider me a new follower 😀
