Tuesday Tips

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

I don’t know if this is a “tip” per se, but we all have a little bit of voyeur in us and it’s fun to see what each of us carries in their tote or purse!  And, maybe you will like something that I carry and decide to carry it, too! 

Also, I’m convinced that men want to know what we carry!  They always seem a little intrigued by our “bag of tricks”.   If you are a man and want to carry a bag, then I say go for it!  There are lots of options now – the fanny pack, the messenger bag, the backpack, etc.!  

Right now, I’m carrying a pretty big tote from Thirty-One – the direct sales company.  My college friend sold this to me a couple of years ago and it was half off including a monogram making it only about $30.  It is really well made and I really like it.  Teachers like tote bags and this holds my purse contents and my laptop, ipad, lunch, etc.  

I empty the contents pretty much daily because I don’t like a messy bag.  Right now I have:

regular glasses in case I need to take contacts out

2 pairs of sunglasses – one black and one brown


sunglass readers


2 packs of gum – one fruity and one minty 🙂

the sequin pouch is my wallet right now – money and cards


face powder and the blue pouch with pink and yellow stripes


Inside the blue pouch is:  


4 lipsticks or glosses (3 are Lipsense my fave and 1 is Seductress Maybelline Matte 

essential oil roller

blister balm for shoes

extra contacts

drops for dry eyes because of contacts 

I really like the pouch approach so you don’t have many loose items floating around.  

That’s about it!  

What’s in your bag?  What should I carry?  Haha – I’m opening myself up for all kinds of crazy suggestions!

  1. I enjoy snooping in other people’s belongs, ha ha
    Pouches are great! And they protect your purse too. I have a fancy bag that I would be REALLY mad at myself if I got pen ink all over the inside.


  2. I love these posts. I actually might go dig out a pouch. I’m transitioning bags today and it’s a process with the baby’s things.
    Also, I always carried two bags when I was teaching: my school bag and my regular purse. Plus my lunchbox. It was a haul to get in and out of the car.


    1. It’s so interesting! I used to like Us magazine when they would show a “star’s”
      bag contents! I acquired many pouches doing Ipsy! Teachers come to school so packed down it’s comical!


  3. I almost always have a book in my purse. But I’ve been trying to keep myself to smaller bags with less “stuff.”
