I have always wondered why some people carry such big bags around with them all the time...the mom bag, I called it. I have friends who carry crazy amounts of unnecessary stuff around with them all the time. With my schedule becoming increasingly busy lately, I have found myself carrying a bigger bag to and from work lately(hello multitasking on my break).
Fearful that I was becoming a "mom bagger" I dumped out the contents of my bag to assess the situation. Keep in mind that I have literally been home for one full hour out of the last 31 hours(I worked overnight at the hospital) so it may have a little more in it than usual.
-cell phone and charger
-cooking light magazine
-book, Three Nights in August
-2 tubes of chapstick
-tube of lip gloss
-toothbrush and toothpaste
-variety of sharpies
-papers to apply to volunteer to tutor homless kids
-work keys and ID
-nail polish, file and polish remover
-soy nuts and dried cherries
I would say that isn't too bad considering I have been gone from home since 630 yesterday morning, stopped home for an hour yesterday afternoon to shower and change and won't be back home until 2pm today.
