the one with stuff in my bag

If you haven’t heard, I’m a bit of an organizational freak. Saying I’m a clean freak is ridiculous, I can handle a layer of dust and some gooey stuff on the kitchen floor that I have no idea where it came from – disgusting but true. But for things to not be in their place and organized, I simply can’t take it. My mind will literally buzz with annoyance. So you know all the stuff in my bag is completely organized and there is nothing there that shouldn’t be. Well, that’s not true, but you’ll see.

Of course, I have the most important items . . .my wallet (several years old this is the same thing on the inside) , keys (better life bags strap), and phone (phone case). These are the 3 items that I’ll grab and throw in a smaller purse when going out with the girls, a date night, or if I just don’t want to carry all my stuff.


I always have sunglasses in my hair (or on my shirt, or in my mouth, i’m weird), but I don’t always need sunglasses in my hair. So there are several pair just laying around the house and in my purse. Same goes for lip colors. I keep all of them in a little bag with hand sanitizer, some extra mascara, tweezers, a mirror, and lotion so they’re not just tossed around. That doesn’t always happen so once or twice a week I’ll go through and put them all back and take out the receipts and gum wrappers from the bottom of my bag.


Then there’s the reason I have such a big bag. My planner, my life. I keep a bunch of pens, washi tape, highlighters, etc in that little black bag so I can update it whenever needed. I also usually have a little journal and my current devotional/book with me. You never know when you’re gonna have some downtime. I can do a lot on my phone, but I usually have my chrome book or our family iPad so if i find some time to do some work and wifi, I’m ready!


Gum, water bottle, business card holder, an extra charger, and some earrings I just bought are all that’s left of the current content in my bag. They usually stay in the little pockets on the outside so they are out of the way.


What’s in your bag?

    You know me…haha. When I am home and not traveling I make sure I use a small bag so I can’t collect things!
