I was set this challenge by Shayne last week & finally got to photograph my bag & it's (many) contents...
My bag is plain white mock-leather with leopard print cotton lining & quite a few pockets & Zips inside so is working very well for me at the moment. Nice & big too. Cost me R100 (USD10) at the bag shop downstairs at La Lucia Mall (don't think I've ever noticed what it's called...) They often have sales in there. I go through bags several times a year, probably 'cos I carry too much!
I always carry my spiral-bound notebook & 3 pens 'cos when I have the kids with me they often need to borrow a pen to play hangman or something if we're having a coffee, etc. I always carry scissors in case kids need threads cut off clothes or something...Little ones' school activity schedule to check where I'm meant to be when, calculator & spare card-reader.
Wallet (bright-pink so I can always find it quickly,LOL!) wet-wipes, tampons,tissues,hair-brush, compact-mirror,nailbrush (for cleaning breakfast stains off kid's white school shirts if necc!), disprin (headache-tablets), lip-ice, cover stick, deoderant, Nazene nasal-spray & sunglasses.
Tape-measure (to check shirt & trouser lengths if I see anything good for Shane as he's ultra-tall so I'm always on the look out for clothes for him but need to be sure they're long enough). My compact digital camera, Flip video-camera & my white watch that needs a new strap!
And that, let me tell you peeps, is a lot LESS than I used to carry a few years ago...
D'ya reckon I need it all or could end up damaging my shoulder???
