M tagged me for a handbag meme - the unadulterated contents. Ooh err.
However, like M - I have a few rotational handbags, so none of them are laden with long-lost junk. Plus, anyone who has been reading here long enough with know I *loathe* crap, and my favourite day is 'rubbish collection day', where I routinely find new crap to throw out .. so receipts and wrappers are dealt with on a weekly basis.
Gee, I wish my house was as clean as the above statement makes it sound :(
So on with the show:
This is my latest bag, and I *luff* it. AB brought it back from me from Noo York, and it can fit 2x DSLR cameras, a tripod, some lenses, and still have room for a nappy and a kid-snack. All without looking 'functional' ( yerk! ) or bulky, or ugly, or worse.
When I was a corporate slave, my handbags measured no bigger than 5x10cm. About the same size as an evening bag - enough room for a credit card, some notes and change, a stick of gum, and a slimline mobile phone. I was very proud of my minimalism.
So this is my bag as of this morning ( note: there is no money or phone due to the fact I now own a wallet ( I used to just keep all my money loose in the bottom of my bags ), and this is in the bottom of the pram, from a walk to the park yesterday. )
- Qantas Snack Bag -
I love these - they are perfect to pack a couple of clean nappies in.
- 3x receipts - Bunnings, Coles Express ( petrol ), and McDonalds. Sorry, but i love McDonalds.
- 2x rocks ( from down the side - for colour and size sampling )
- 2x pens
- my MOO Cards
- 10 cent coin
- Camera memory card
- Baby sunhat ( that the baby refuses to wear )
- a Huggies Babywipe sample pack
- eyeglass cleaning cloth
- 2x travel packs of tissues, both opened
- 1x model British Airways toy plane ( child distraction ploy )
- 1x dummy ( pacifier for our US friends )
- 1x muesli bar
- 1x lipbalm
- 1x lens cap
- 1x child's sunglasses
