What's in My Bag?

I have always been curious about what others carried in their bags because I certainly have a whole load of stuff in my bag that sometimes I forget I've put them in - hah!

So I was happy to link up and join in the fun when fellow blogger mom, Adeline started this "What's in Your Bag?" linky.

I used to change bags that match the outfit I put on, sometimes it could be a daily affair but since becoming a mom, everything has to be done in a snap so I try to stick to the basics that is versatile and could match almost any outfit I put on.

I love this Bottega Veneta Hobo inspired bag, it's the weaving that has a draw on me.

I used to dump everything into my handbag without much organization. Till I was frustrated being unable to find a particular item I wanted. Now I use smaller pouches to keep everything in its proper place to spare myself the frustration.

Tissues, wet wipes and hand sanitizer (never used to have a hand sanitizer in my bag until I have kids). I've also learned to bring more packs of tissues because the kids would always get themselves dirty somehow. I don't usually use the wet wipes at the restaurants and so I keep them for later use in my bag.

How can I ever leave home without this all-in-one gadget? My phone, my camera, my organizer, my watch, my GPS, my internet connection, my.... everything that I need to get myself hooked up socially.

Pencil case as well as a name card holder. 

And of course my purse with my money! Usually carried when I am out beyond the market/supermarket *(disclaimer: I don't usually carry this much cash, just happened so that today I have a little more in my purse). 

My everyday purse where I keep smaller change and the necessary cards.

Every ladies' monthly need! Do you like this zipper pouch I sew? *smile*

A cards only pouch. Too many discount cards, credit cards, what-not cards, I dump them all into this card organizer.

I used to hate carrying umbrellas because they usually add onto the weight in my bag. But I have learned to appreciate the extra effort in carrying this along because there are just too many times I was caught in a rain and couldn't get home! 

Oh in case you are wondering, I don't carry cosmetics in my bag these days, even though I do put on makeup I just couldn't be bothered to touch-up my makeup anymore. Think it's gotta be because I've become a mother - ie. becoming lazy with too many other things to be concerned about! ahem!
