urse – I try to keep my purse free of receipts and other non essential items. My purse houses just my bank cards, driving license and cash. I do not carry around any store loyalty cards on a daily basis (although I have them) as any purchases from these stores are planned therefore I’ll take the cards with me as and when I actually intend to use them.
Diary/Planner – My diary/planner is set to an academic year (as I work in education) and I use it for personal and work related dates and task lists. It’s a week per view diary with a section for notes on each set of pages.
Mobile Phone – Daily essential and my bag has a designated pocket for this.
Keys – Sometimes I sound like a jailor when I move around. I have so many keys! I have keys for my home, my mums, my in-laws, work and desk drawers. I’ve had this Cath Kidston key ring for over 8 years and it holds sentimental value.
Beauty items – Include a pocket mirror, Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 2.0 and a Fresh Sugar tinted lip balm in shade Berry.
This is all that I carry in my bag on a daily basis. I could easily get away with a much smaller bag but it’s useful to have room for extra’s I may need to buy when I’m out and about and save the 5p for a carrier bag or for taking lunch into work.
I don’t feel the need to carry more than this. I’m not one to take lots of make-up with me wherever I go. I like my bag to feel light and have room to spare.
I used to carry a shoulder bag but since I bought this back pack I doubt I’ll go back to one. I can sling this on and have two free hands which is great if I’m taking my camera out with me and it just feels more comfortable.
