daily carry / What’s In My Bag

January 19, 2016

1.  Bag (olive green Linea Pelle Dylan, a gift I bought myself upon becoming board certified in 2013).

2.  Really old pencil case holding an extra pen, a pair of tweezers, and a thumb drive

3.  Freebie lululemon coin purse holding an emergency Larabar

4.  Hobonichi tissue pouch containing (wait for it!) tissues

5.  Hobonichi techo cousin with Uniball Jetstream 3-color pen

6.  Super-old yellow pouch containing tampons (hey, this is uncensored)

7.  Super-old (like, >10 years I think) Orla Kiely wallet that still seems to be in workable condition

8.  Smythson notebook with like 5 failed attempts at time tracking (attempt #6 in progress!)

9.  Sunglasses

That’s it!  Every item sparks at least a little bit of joy when I look at it right now.  The poorly lit photo does not, but I suppose one can’t have everything!

Notably, only one item remains from my 2010 edition.  Although the beads, stethoscope, and algorithms text remain on active duty in my office.

    I had no idea what the Hobonichi tissue pouch was for! I gave it to my 6 year old to store her animal facts cards! Thanks for solving that mystery!

    I love these what’s in my bag posts for some reason. That bag is gorgeous.. I’m curious to see what you carry in your diaper bag nowadays with a preschooler and toddler.

    I love how you have everything in it’s own puch. I tend to just throw everything in my bag as is but the pouches seem like a much nicer idea.

    oh man, I’d be mortified to show off the mess in my bag right now! I have a huge backpack that is like a black hole sometimes. things go in and never make their way out!

    Oh- can I put forth another post idea?

    Favorite splurges that make your life nicer/easier/happier/ better? Big or little.
