What’s In My Bag: Work Edition
Today, I am sharing the items I always make sure to have with me when leaving for work. Have you ever wondered what other people have in their bags especially when it’s a big bag? I am one of those. For me, I hate when my hands are bare no matter where I am going. A bag is a necessary accessory I must have at all times. I thought it will be fun to share what’s in my work bag.
I have been carrying this bag for almost a year. It was a gift I bought for myself when I got a new job. Yes, I am always excited when I get a new job and to crown it all, a gift is necessary. True story, often times my bags are filled with random stuff. Don’t ask me why because I can’t explain how those random items get into my bag. Although, I have been trying to be more organized lately but it seems not to be working the way I want. But that is a story for another day. For my work bag, I try to keep it simple including the contents inside. Here’s a list of what’s in my work bag:
Have you ever gone to work without your badge? If you have then you understand how frustrating it is to always have to have someone badge you in restricted areas. I always make sure I don’t take my badge out of my bag. I think I have only left my badge at home once and it wasn’t fun.
In my head, I feel it can rain any day even during summer. Hence, the reason why an umbrella is always in my bag. I am always prepared for the rain.
You can never have too much pens. I love the idea of being able to choose. So, I always carry a handful of pens with me.
Wallet and Keys
I need my keys and wallet. Two important items I must always have with me.
Hand cream and Hand Sanitizer
I have dry skin and my hands always give it away. For a smooth day at work, I must occasional moisturize my hands. I carry a hand sanitizer everywhere I go. I consider myself a germaphobe to an extent.
Lip gloss/balm and Mirror
I always have either a lip gloss or lip balm and mirror in my bag.
I wear contacts most of the time. So the eye glass is just a back up for those days my contacts ain’t acting right.
The comb is just there because I want a comb in my bag. I rarely use it while at work.
Let’s just say some days are easier than others. You never know when that headache will start.
I often have coins and receipts in my bag. I make sure to declutter my bag every week to get rid o those receipts. The only items missing in the picture is my cell phone, journal and sweater.
And that’s it! What is in your work bag? Let me know in the comments below what you carry in your work bag.
