What’s In Your Bag?

by Lori Dwyer on February 25, 2010 · 8 comments

Hi all,

Inspired by Sarah over at Just Me, today’s game is called “What’s In Your bag?”. Plenty self explanatory, really. It’s an opportunity to show the blogosphere how incredible organised you are (Sarah) or how disgustingly chaotic your life actually is (me).

Let’s start at the beginning- a very good place to start.

This is my bag. A BratPack. I love it. I don’t love that I left it sitting under a window for six weeks before Bump was born, and the silk has faded irreparably. Dammit.

This is the contents of my bag. And the Chop is there too, he spotted food. I swear I didn’t realise how much crap was in there till I took it all out.

We have, in no particular order…

* Purse, sunnies, phone, cigarettes *ahem*, keys.
*Lip gloss, lip balm, quartz crystal in it’s little bag, Swiss army knife in pouch.
*Sunhats and beanies for both kids (you just never know what the weather will be like).
*Three pairs of socks for Bump, plus a jumpsuit, and a pair of pants a size too small. Spare shirt for the Chop.
*Spare muslin, purple spew rag.
*Nappies, wipes, talc, plastic container with bags and a change mat.
*Change mat that came with the bag. Note the colour difference.
*Snap lock bag with Sudocream (on closer inspection, it’s actually empty)., sunscreen, antibac hand gel.
*2 different deodorants, hand cream, Panadol, 2010 diary that I haven’t opened yet (comforting to know it’s there, though).
*Drink and snacks for the Chop.
*Blue mini bag with dummies. Dummy chain. Bottle of bubbles (what the?).
*Toys- 1 Thomas, 5 cars, 2 books, a small teddy bear.

I think that about covers it. Wow- and I thought Sarah had a Mary Poppins style carpet bag!!

As an added bonus, here are the things that shouldn’t have actually been in the bag, and have now been removed. The bottle of bubbles probably belongs here as well, but I decided that one was a keeper.

*Various bits of rubbish.
*A battery (disturbingly, this was in the pocket with the toys).
*The Bump’s pretty headband thingie.
* My USB drive (so that’s where that went).

And we’re done. Who else wants to play??

Love it! Found your blog through Mummy Time, and look forward to reading more! This post definitely backs up my theory that if you ever find your self in public needing anything (and I mean anything), seek out a mommy with a big purse! Thanks for sharing!

I thought the pink thing was lacy undies too! Mine is quite boring in comparison. Not the undies, the bag. Well, actually the undies too.

Wallet, keys, various receipts that should be thrown out, tissues, coupons that I forgot to use at the grocery store, 3 lipglosses, mints, various business cards cause I'm too wussy to say, "no thank you – I'll never call you," and a mini-tape measure which my hubby says is "gay."

I am just a little bit in love and envy with anyone who tells me they have fags in their bag. xx

Hahhahahhah, the word verification thingy: CIGHOR. THAT IS ME!

Bubbles are a great idea to distract the other child whilst you are feeding or changing the baby…like that idea!

Will post what is in my bag once bubs comes, for now I swap between two bags and constantly changing it around…but once bubs comes it will be baby bag all the way.

Btw love your bag.

Swiss army knife?? you really are prepared for everything.

My bag contents are actually pretty boring, I change bags every day depending on my outfit so transferring lots of stuff every day is just not an option.

Unorganised?? I'd say you're pretty organised by the looks. The only difference is I'm stupidly anal & must lay everything out perfectly to take a photo of it ;)

Oh & on your 3rd pic I had to look twice, I thought you had a pair of lacy pink knickers in there. I thought you & Mr T must've had a fun hospital visit. HEHEHEHE!

I'm so unorganized I can't find my bag to do this!
