The Things They Carry

     A little while ago, it was trendy for people on YouTube to make a video about what they carry in their purse, bag, backpack, etc. I am not a YouTube vlogger (at least, not yet!). Nonetheless, I would like to share with you the things I carry in my purse and my backpack. 
     I always carry my purse when I leave the house. My purse is a large, brown, fake leather purse from Antik Kraft. I bought it a couple of weeks ago at TJ Maxx. It was on clearance for 22 USD. You have got to love a good bargain! The purse is high quality despite its low price. I use my purse to carry my wallet, my iPhone, my Kindle Fire tablet, and other essentials like lip balm and hand cream. My favorite feature about this purse is that it has both traditional purse handles and a shoulder strap.

     In addition to this purse, I often carry around a back pack. This back pack is a gray, floral back pack from Jansport. I bought this back pack at Marshall's a month or so ago. Marshall's is selling this line of back packs for 24.99 USD each. I normally would have waited until their back packs went on clearance. However, I love the floral print so much that I decided to buy the back pack at 24.99 USD. Jansport back packs come with a lifetime guarantee, which is great! The only feature I did not like about the back pack is it's lack of water bottle holder on the sides. I use the back pack to carry my less-essential, but still important, items. Right now, this back pack holds the following:

  • my journal
  • a library book called The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry
  • the book No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty
  • a pouch of pencils and pens
  • a pouch of some street art and creativity items, like blank index cards
  • a miniature desk set with staples, tape, etc
  • my inhaler
  • bug spray
  • a sun hat
  • a protein bar
  • my set of crochet hooks and other crochet accessories
  • my laptop

What do you carry around with you? Please leave me a comment below.
