What’s In My Everyday Bag

I love reading what’s in my bag type posts, maybe because I just like being nosy but I don’t know. So today I thought I would share what I keep in my everyday bag. I got this backpack from Accessorise many years ago, I love pattern on it. I’m also a big fan of the metal fastenings.

whats in my bag Accessorise backpack

items in bag

Inside I have:

Phone. A Sansung Note which is so big some people think its a game boy. I have a game boy cover on it which really doesn’t help.

Kindle. I seriously can’t leave my house without a book. So instead of carrying lots of heavy books I take along my Kindle instead. This thing is a lifesaver if I’m bored and waiting for a train. Thats if I remember to keep it charged up.

Purse. I am a massive fan of the Moomins. I saw this purse in a little shop in Bath and had to buy it. I’ve had it for almost three years now and I really don’t know what I’m going to do when the time comes to replace it.

Inhalers. Since my surgery I haven’t had as many problems with my asthma. However I’m still slightly paranoid that I might need my inhalers while out, this means they pretty much come everywhere with me.

Foldaway Bag. TheΒ Scottish Parliament recently passedΒ legislation that requires shops to charge 5p for a carrier bag. I use this instead because it saves me from having to pay for a bag.

Sunscreen. Because its Scotland outside.

Socks. For some reason after leaving work one day I took my socks off and put them in my bag. They’ve never left.

Umbrella. Because its Scotland outside.

Lip balm. I really don’t use many lip balms but I like this one from The Body Shop.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Great bag, Emma! Glad to see your Kindle was in there. You would be excommunicated from the ranks of bibliophiles without a book or reader.

      1. Grabbing distance, perhaps?

        I read of one guy who confessed that he had formerly thought he would never, ever, own a reader. He succumbed to the thought of carrying hundreds of books around in his hip pocket.

        1. Yes. Maybe even a bit closer.

          Ereaders are great. But I prefer having an actual book. The thing I love most about them is I no longer have to print out fanfiction if I want to read it away from a computer. You have no idea how many trees that has saved.

  2. A very brave post! Even though people accuse me of being somewhat of an exhibitionist, I don’t think I’d ever, never ever, have the courage to dump out the contents of my bag for all the world to see! I probably don’t even really want to know myself!

    1. The stuff I have in my bag is pretty much the same stuff anyone else would have in their bag. None of the things I have in there are that important to me, its just stuff I own.

  3. Beautiful post!!!! I am not that bold to reveal what’s in my bag. I don’t need most items in there, but I can’t seem to not go out without them. I wonder if there is a term for that.

      1. I’ll try not to cheat, since I just quit my job and this will definitely alter my bag’s content πŸ™‚ Well, we are far away. Unless you were at Mexico or El Salvador, then we’d be neighbors.
