Well I don’t carry a handbag. I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to going places.
I have a collection of totes from various gigs or online purchases, but if I’m just going to the pub, or out for an evening all I want is cash, cards, phone, keys, and lipbalm.
I’ve spend ages trying to find the perfect way to do this, and I think I’m pretty close.
Kitsch Devine make this gorgeous wallet.
It’s a fabric wallet, and I really want this cat print one!
But I am so happy with mine.
So here’s what I carry everywhere…
Obviously my phone is conspicuously absent – but it fits in their perfectly, even with a case on. So many iphone wallets fit an iphone but only if they dont have a case.
This one fits my phone whether it’s wearing polka-dots, flowers, or the little mermaid (I have a mild iphone case obsession).
Lip balm is essential. Chapstick is always on sale so I usually have dozens of them but can never find one when I need one.
Endless receipts. I don’t know why I keep receipts as I tend to do my account keeping using my bank statements, but I still always end up with receipts.
Emergency panty liner. Learnt from experience.
Cards. The usual drivers licence, bank card, medicare card.
Special cards include my RTR fm subscribers card, spotlight card, and entertainment book card. Yay for discounts!
Business cards. Does anyone else have business cards for their blog? I find they’re really useful when I want to give someone my details, but I don’t want to give them my mobile number. Instead they have my url, email, and twitter handle. I always have a few handy.
Post It Notes. Because they’re really useful.
The heart shaped carabina is there because I sometimes attach my keys to it. It’s not the best solution, but it works.
Noticeably absent –
Bobby pins, usually I have a few tucked away in my wallet.
Money, I’m hopeless when it comes to keeping cash
Pen, I’m probably being optimistic, but I think having a pen tucked in there would be really useful.
So there you go. A little insight into my essentials.
