Remember that commercial? Whats in your wallet? Well in an effort to carry around less stuff I'm doing one of those whats in your purse things like they do at the back of Marie Claires.
Now keep in mind, I'm nomadic. I split my time between my parents house, Tallman's apartment and the law school building. This means that at both residences I keep deodorant, sunscreen, underwear, contact solution, etc. And at law school I have deodorant and snacks (what? sometimes, in the summer, the deodorant needs to be reapplied).
But because of my nomadic ways I've started carrying a lot of stuff with me, which is annoying, inconvenient, hurts my back, and, with this increasingly warm weather, is sweaty. Also, because of said nomadic ways, I use pouches, so that little things don't get lost and can easily be transferred from a back pack to a purse and back again.
I took pictures of all the things I always carry with me. Then emptied the pouches and showed whats inside (after I cleaned out a significant amount of gum wrappers).
Call me crazy but I feel a little exposed sharing with the world what is in my purse. So don't judge, or judge but keep it to yourself.
If I'm going out for dinner or some such, and going from home to home I'll just take the wallet, magic wallet (has my metro pass in it) and some lip gloss. But honestly I can't remember the last time I went from a home out and then back again. Usually I'm going from home to school to a different home. Or home to school to dinner back home. Or sometimes on weekends, a home to school to Allison to school to dinner to home. And yes, this is a lot of stuff to carry about, but I never know when I'll need the very important things in those bags.
What is in those bags you ask?
Tallman mocks me for carrying so much stuff with me, and I try to downsize or tell him how necessary things are. I suppose I could incorporate the magic wallet into my regular wallet or carry the makeup bag less frequently. Maybe...
Now that you've seen what I carry with me wherever I go, do you have any suggestions for downsizing? Or products you like to carry with you?
