So when I got an email inviting me to participate in a fun collaboration with Gussy Sews called "What's in Your Bag?" my first thought was, "fun!"
My second thought was, "crap! The shame!"
I was lucky though -- I just changed bags so it hasn't gotten too crazy bananas up in here yet. I should post photos of what is still in my last bag... but I won't! (I changed right before we ran out the door to Sun Valley so there was no cleaning of the previous bag happening, I just hung it in a closet. It still weighs 5 pounds. I'm hanging my head in shame.)
See how cute my new bag from Gussy Sews is? It's a large zippered pouch and I heart it a whole bunch.
I have to share what I'm using this new pouch for though, because it rocked my world. I was reading the description of pouch sizes and it said the large pouch was great for toiletries or computer cords, and right then and there the heavens opened; cords! I have so. many. cords.
I gave it a test run on our trip last weekend -- I stuffed it chock full of phone chargers and camera batteries and assorted cords... probably some of them I didn't even need but I packed them anyway because I could. I'm usually rifling through suitcases trying to find a phone charger at 2 in the morning... but no more, no siree.
My heart is swelling. Baby steps toward organization, people.
Now that I'm home I'm still using it for the cords I get into a lot like the USB cord for my camera. Now that I can find them I might not need several scattered around in strategic locations anymore... ;)
And just because I love you and have no shame, here's all the stuff I just pulled out of my last bag:
(lots of papers and receipts, including a flyer from the photo session that must not be named. A single child's sock, white glue, jewelry parts (I don't make jewelry so figure that one out), a pair of goggles... you know. That's just how I roll.)
Now you need to make me feel better -- what's the weirdest thing you've carried around in your bag?
