What's In My Bag?: Work Edition
Hello loves! As promised, I'm going to give you a sneak peek into my daily life. Now as a preschool teacher, you've got to be ready for whatever may come your way. I personally like to use my Longchamp Le Pliage tote in the large size because it's weatherproof and easy to clean in case of messy paint spills.
What's Keeping Me Busy: As I mentioned in my Travel Edition, I always have to have a book with me when I am out and about. It is particularly entertaining for my commutes between schools. My current read is All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I carry my iPad around for my shorter commutes so that I can do work in between sessions. It's a way to make the most of my constant downtime on the train!
Staying Organized: Even though I do have a lot of upcoming events and appointments on my iPhone calendar, I have the Bloom Calendar Year Daily Planner. I like having the tabs to separate the months and the the large spaces for each day. Additionally, inside my pencil case are my loads of colored pens for maximum organization. I also carry Post-It notes of different sizes just in case it's a sticky kind of day.
Absolute Necessities: Now many of my friends already know this, but I absolutely swear by the Contigo Autoseal West Loop travel mug. I got an older model years ago and have never betrayed this brand despite having many other travel mugs. I love that the updated model has an easy clean top and a locking feature to double up on the no-spill concept. I've never had an accident with this mug and the best thing about it is that it keeps your beverages hot or cold for over four hours!
Some other things I have to have with me always are my Totes Signature Auto Open Close Micro Umbrella (to make sure it'll fit in my smaller bags as well), my Tory Burch wristlet (different print on sale for $115) for those times when I just want to grab something quick from outside without having to carry all of my paperwork around, chapstick, hand sanitizer, charger, floss, feminine products (because honestly, you never know) and Advil.
What's inside your everyday work bag? Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for my next post! Hint: It'll be all about showing off some shoulder!
