Show and Tell Tuesday: What's In Your Bag?

Hi everyone! I'm linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals today to share what's in my purse! (Warning- it's pretty boring!) 

I'm pretty much a crossbody bag only type person these days. It is so nice to not have to carry anything in my bag for the kids, so I can get away with carrying a much smaller bag. I got this Steve Madden bag from TJ Maxx last year, and I rotate it out with about 3 other bags throughout the year. 

THIS bag is similar from Target:

Earlier this summer, I opted for a new wallet from Marshalls. I'm in LOVE! It has a compartment for cash, coins, coupons, and receipts! It really helps me stay organized, and since I'm a big Ibotta user, I love that I can keep track of my receipts without cluttering my desk. It is similar to THIS one. 

I've also been carrying around one of my Ipsy makeup bags. If you missed my August glam bag review, check it out HERE

In my makeup bag, I keep a baggie of Dentek flossers in case of post-meal emergencies.

I also keep a pack of ELF Shine Eraser Blotting Sheets to keep my skin in check. 

I also have the Hempz Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm that I received in my July Ipsy bag.

I'm a big germophobe, so I always have some hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works on hand. 

Finally, I have some Starbucks gift cards from last year's students that still need to be spent, and I also always have to keep my prescriptions for my colitis with me. And that is literally IT! I think that carrying a smaller bag forces me to keep things in check, so it is really hard to let it get too messy. 

What do you carry in your bag? Tell me in the comments below!

And, if you want to see what ideas I have for my closet this fall, stop by today's Workin' It Wednesday post. I will not be posting my usual recipe tomorrow and will be returning on Friday with an announcement. See you then!

  1. I love looking inside others bags! My bag is a little fuller and probably full of crumbs because snacks and kids ;). xoxo ERIN.

  2. Well I was so happy to see this this morningšŸ˜‰. I use to keep hand sanitizer all the time, but I've kind of switched to only Wet Ones. Love those things. I'd like to go down to a cross body, but I'm too much of a grandma with all my gear...LOL Have a great day!!!

  3. Hand sanitizer - YES! I never go anywhere without it!

  4. I carry a small bag too because if I have a huge one, it just gets filled with random junk!

  5. I love the Hempz lotion, so I bet the lip balm rocks! I'm all about hand sanitizer!!! Can't carry a bag without it!


Hi friends! Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you!
