Might sound like an odd and perhaps personal question but no matter what i just can't leave the house without taking a huge bag filled with everything i might need...my brolly in case it rains, my A5 sized diary, my huge purse, make up bag, a book, sunglasses and case, a bottle of water, a packed lunch etc. It's mainly when i'm going to work and i take a book and dinner with me as i work in a shop on my own at times and it's not that busy during the week. I also cannot go anywhere without a full bottle of water as i do drink alot and often if i'm out all day i'll take two! There's no facility at work to fill your bottle up so you have to buy one, and i refuse to do so for the sake of saving money. So as you can imagine my bags are huge (yet stylish as i happen to work in a bag/accessories shop ) and it seems a shame i can't use my smaller cuter handbags without them bulging and hardly fitting on my arm. My shoulder aches alot as well...
What do you carry around with you? Any advice?
My bag is quite small and I got: black and blue pen, vaseline, diary, purse, keys, brush and phone. Umbrella lives in the car.
You have wayyyy too much and I have no idea what and how you can limit what you carry as it all seems needed - perhaps leaving the book at your work place in a draw? . . .
