Women of Faith Wednesday: It’s All in My Bag

Today’s Women of Faith Wednesday question is:  “What’s in Your Purse and Why?”  I’m embarrassed to answer that question.  Hahaha  Usually I carry bags big enough to tote a toddler.  Tonight I happened to have switched to my “small” bag.  Women always say they can’t switch bags because they always forget something in the original bag.  Now there’s an art to switching bags (I’ll get to the what’s inside in just a minute)…  If you follow my directions, you can switch bags every day and never forget anything again!

Here’s the trick ~ you know all those little cosmetic cases you get when you purchase a bag?  You use those to store all of your belongings.  Seriously, I store all of my stuff in 3 of those cosmetic cases and when I switch bags, all I have to do is move the cosmetic cases, my car keys, wallet and cell….

So, here it is, the stuff that I have in my bag and why:

BlackBerry Storm:  Have to keep in touch with my people

1 book:  The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women & a Forty~Year Friendship ~ You never know when you’re going to get stuck in traffic or end up waiting in a long line, so I use that time to catch up on my reading

Earplugs: I took them out of my car because I need them for my work out

Wallet:  Being in the Army has made me very aware of always carrying identification on me

Adapter:  Let’s me hook my BlackBerry Storm up to the car so I can listen to music

Pens:  Pilot Precise V~5 because they are the best pens ever

Camera:  Always have to be prepared

Cosmetic Bag 1: 6 lipglosses, 2 chapsticks, 4 lipsticks and feminine hygiene products

Cosmetic Bag 2:  hand sanitizer and hand cream

Acer Netbook:  sometimes I like to blog on the fly

Last, some of my husband’s belongings (I’m gonna start charging him $20 for space rental).  Honestly, he’s always putting stuff in my bag.

So, what about you?  What do you have in your bag?
