Please, Bag Tag...!

Monday, February 23, 2009
I was browsing the Womens Blogger Directory again and ended up on one of its amazing blogs called Tranquility... and Turmoil authored by Eve Stein. Since I joined the directory full of inspiring women, I told myself to write about some of these interesting reading sources here on my blog but I was having a hard time making a choice... If you visit the links at the directory, you'll understand what I mean.

This fun post here made a difficult choice a little bit easier...

I've been tagged by Eve Stein at Tranquility... and Turmoil
(well, you can say that I tagged myself... but, Eve did write that if you have a camera and a purse handy and you've just read this post, then consider yourself tagged)

The rules are as follows:

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today.
2) I want to know how much it cost. This is not to judge, this is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.
3) Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.

So here we go...

This is my daily bag for Monday 'til Saturday. Not much to carry in it. Just a few bucks and my mobile phone. I find it very practical and efficient for my needs. I'm a stay at home mom whose frequently riding her motorbike, escorting a bunch of my daughter's school activities, on a 5 to 10 minute trip and I like to keep it simple. The price of this handmade item is zero, since it was a gift from my sister who had visited Yogya.

You might be wondering why there is a second bag... No, I was not cheating and going up to my closet. Meet Sunday! A bigger bag to carry my belongings. I used to have much bigger ones, being called Doraemon by friends, for having all kind of stuff crammed in. But now I'm a fan of simplicity, if not call it lazy ;). This bag here also costs zip. I got it from bonus points shopping at my favorite gift shop.

I'm rather embarrassed to show you what's in the bag, but let's spill it! Just my purse, mobile phone cover (...or whatever it is called. You can't see my mobile because I'm using it to take the photos), a comb to untangle my son's hair if he lets me, my daughter's accessory (she just got it from her aunty), the children's fun city tickets (collect them at certain amounts and you get some prizes), plus last weekend's dining receipts now eliminated... and yes, no make up.

Okay, that's it... Tag away and forward the fun, please :)!

Oh yay! I'm so glad that someone took me up on this meme~!

Love the purses - especially that cute little one. I really think it's time for me to downsize mine. The idea of carrying the bare essentials is very appealing!
