I’ve never been one of these girls that takes a bag everywhere with me, but nowadays it seems to be happening more and more. To the extent that I’m over prepared for any trip (even just to the shops). So I thought I’d do a ‘bag must haves’ blog…because why not. We may as well start off the year prepared, even if we don’t end it that way. Just as a little insight into women though, girls will always struggle when it comes to bags, mainly because of the size of them. Too small and we can’t fit anything in it, too big and you can’t find anything that’s in it. Anyway I’ll get on with it.
Item number 1: A purse. How would we spend money without this? Obviously we need this with us, shopping is what we do best…unless your trying your to avoid spending money at all costs…in which case leave it at home!
Item number 2: Keys. House keys, car keys, window keys (trust me they get everywhere). You need keys…unless you want your house robbed which you know some people might.
Item number 3: Hand cream. Because I have eczema I need to keep my skin moisturised and when I go out in the cold, my hands get the most damaged. The hand cream I have in my bag at the minute is the Soap and Glory hand food, which seems to be working.
Item number 4: A Diary. A lot of people don’t understand why I carry this around when I have a phone to put all my dates on…but anyone with a iPhone will understand how quickly the battery can go down. So why not go back to the olden ways and write it down instead?
Item number 5: Hand Sanitiser. Travelling, shopping, eating, there’s always germs,so why not.
Item number 6: Gum. Sometimes we need a bit of a refresher, so I always carry it around. Plus as soon as someone see’s it they want a piece. I normally have a pack in my car and people think its a free refreshment as if its a service I provide…safe to say it’s gone within a week.
Item number 7: A pen. You never know when you’ll need to write something down. Plus I mean I can’t carry a diary around without having a pen…that would just be silly.
Item number 8: Ivan the iPod. Everyone needs a bit of music in there life. Carrying that around allows you to escape when the world gets a bit much too. (Here’s a link for those who don’t know who Ivan is) Ivan the iPod Blog.
Item number 9: A thousand loyalty cards. We all collect theses, even for places we’ll just visit once in the hope we might return there someday and eventually have enough stamps for a free coffee.
Item number 10: Tampons. Come on, let’s all be adults here. Women bleed…better to have them and not need them. Even if they are a luxury item 😉
I’m sure over time it will just get more and more items in it…many useless. But that’s what women do 🙂
