What’s in My Bag? w/ Video

This is the written post to accompany the YouTube video I filmed with the same title.

My bag is a baby pink leather backpack by Betsy Johnson, a birthday present from my husband.

The front pocket is where my cell phone lives.

Whats In My Bag (1)

Knitting needles and yarn: in a previous post, I wrote about one of my knitting projects: the Pieces Afghan. The squares for this project are small enough that I can keep it in my purse and work on one when time permits.

You can read about the Pieces Afghan in my previous post.

Wallet: (insert brand). This was another birthday present from my husband. I love that is has a chain wrist strap, it’s pretty strong, but noisy. There is a small zipper pouch that is detachable, via snaps.

Raika Planner: (link to Raika post). My Raika planner tags along with me because I use it in conjunction with my mini flex.

Mini Flex: my brain. My brain dump notebook. This thing goes with me everywhere.

Current Journal: I’m attempting to bullet journal in a bound notebook again, and instead of wasting a new notebook, I’m using my current journal. I also bring it along in case I need to journal.

There is a zipper pocket along the back, and two open pockets along the front. In the two front pockets, I keep hand sanitizer, hand lotion, a business card holder, random pen, and the thing of page flags and post it’s.

      Try not to carry anything that isn’t vital. Sounds ridiculous I know, especially coming from someone who has 3 notebooks/planners and knitting in my bag.

    Love your organization! The only real reason I have managed to ever carry a bag is to carry knitting 🙂 Never going to be much of a purse girl…but needing knitting to keep me occupied is an entirely different thing!

    I love seeing what’s in people’s bags. I really love that bag too! I’ve been toying back and forth with carrying a backpack type of bag because I like for my hands to be free. This cute bag is making me think about it more!

      I prefer the backpack style because I can carry a lot more in it. The hands free part is a bonus.

    I love that you have a brain dump notebook! I really should start carrying one of these around instead of writing everything in my iphone notepad!

      I’d start with a $0.27 notepad from Walmart, nothing fancy. I can write faster than I can type, and I remember things better if I write them down.
