What's in My Bag

I entered Well Heeled's contest, What's In My Bag.

My purple bag is a street vendor find! I got it from a guy with a table on 32nd Street for $10 a few months ago.

Inside is:
Amazon Kindle and case (free; beta testing for school)
Book, A Fortunate Age (free; advance reader's edition)
Staples notebook (Staples, 3 for $8)
Ikea tupperware (no clue how much it cost, it was my boyfriend's before we moved in together)
Work ID and metrocard in holder (holder was free from work, metrocard was $89)
Sandisk thumb drive, BestBuy $9.95
Chapstick, Duane Reade, 3 for $4.99
Revlon Colorstay lipstick, $1.99 at Cosmetics Warehouse on 39th Street
Hair clip, Duane Reade, 6 for $3.99
Generic cheap sunglasses, street vendor on St Marks Place, $5 (and they're awful, but I always break or lose sunglasses)
Covergirl compact, $2.50 at Cosmetics Warehouse
Wallet, $9.99 at TJ Maxx (I've had it for like six years and love it!)
iPhone ($199, AT&T) and case (generic, $7 from street vendor)

As you can see, I do a lot of shopping at street vendors!

It's weird, isn't it, that I carry a Kindle AND a regular book? I'm reading Gone with the Wind as well as my school books on the Kindle, and I'm starting to transfer work stuff to it, but I got really taken in by A Fortunate Age and I just couldn't leave it at home. I like to have lots of reading options, in case, I don't know, I wind up with hours and hours of free time and finish Gone with the Wind.

I also still carry a paper notebook despite having an iPhone to make notes and to do lists on. There's a pen in the Kindle case.

What I'd buy at TJ Maxx or Marshalls if I win:
New sunglasses
A fun clutch
Body lotion gift sets--I love those!

  1. Your bag is so nice! I think I was looking at it for a like a minute before I thought, hey what is INSIDE of that bag. I'm entering too, but I don't have too much stuff. Le Sigh! I just have a thing for big bags...
