What's in My Bag?
Note: I'm changing my way of blogging. I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I'm feeling this exposes my spendings abit too much, and subjects me to snarky comments, so I'm no longer going to put in prices. Thank you all for your get well wishes! I am getting better, thank God. Strangely, the doctor says I might have some asthma! How did that happen? Today's post is about what's in my bag. I carry too many things in my handbag, but when I sorted through the stuff, I found I couldn't let go of anything. Quite a few of these things, I find I need them when I don't put them in my bag. Talk about Murphy's Law at work. Add to that my need to compartmentalise things and I have a seriously heavy bag to carry! I put things into individual pouches so that things are sorted like-with-like. All this weight works against me when I'm shopping, because I have more things to carry and I get so tired! Let me show you the contents of my bag. This weekend, the bag of choice is a new Lesportsac that I got at a 30%+10% discount from the Isetan Anniversary sale (16-17 Jul 09 additional 10% for Isetan card holders). This bag is a traveller's tote and comes with an additional matching pouch in the same print. First, the pouches and other stuff. Now the contents of the pouches, laid out next to the pouches. The logic behind my compartmentalisation: Eg. the Coach pouch? I put other papers like receipts into that. And the coin pouch is for a tonne of coins that I need for the internal office bus shuttle service that brings us out to the train station. I don't want the weight of the tonne of coins to spoil my pretty wallet. I'm beginning to suspect it's the coins that create all that weight! Somehow, I manage to squeeze all these into smaller bags as well, like the LV Tivoli PM or any other bag of a similar or smaller size. The good thing about Lesportsac is that the bag itself weighs next to nothing. I'm planning to use them for my travels in future. Obsessive Compulsive, you think? I'd say so myself, no worries. Do you see anything I should ditch from the bag? Let me know. :D Oh, by the way, the pouches don't seem to add much weight so I wouldn't ditch the pouches, cause I've done the no-pouch way and the things jumbled up together in my bag drive me nuts! © Copyright.
