The Bag Tag good friend Kim tagged me in her "Bag Tag" so here goes:

Here are the rules for the tag:
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 or the last time you left the house. No cheating!

2. I want to know how much it costs =). And this is not to judge. It 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 what the heck you're showing everyone your bag.

KellieBelle's Bag:

Well, not surprising to those who know me, I'm just flat out breaking the rules on this. I can't find the cord to my camera, so no picture downloads for the time being. But, I will tell you about my bag and then show you the fab new bag that will be delievered to me any day now.

First, I have always carried a purse, like since Jr. High. I have lots of bags because I like to have options, but tend to stick with one for a while, then change out. Lately, instead of a 'purse' I have what I like to call, the "everything commuter bag" because, let's face it, if you commute to work and are gone 12 hours a day like me, you need a drug store, grocery store, and recreational material all in your bag!! So, right now the commuter bag is a zipper top tote bag. It was a gift, so it was FREE! Right now in it is:
  • bag of meds: pepto-bismol tablets, ibuprophen, Kleenex, Emergen-C Immune Defense drink mix, nail file, allergy meds, contact lens drops, Shout wipe, band-aids, chapstick, and what I like to call my "girly stuff" for that time of the month

  • small cosmetic bag with powder, blush, & a couple lipsticks

  • Moleskine city book of Boston-complete with maps, bus and train schedules

  • my gloves

  • cell phone

  • keys

  • mega-wallet: my large wallet, which can double as a wristlet purse if I go our for lunch

  • book and magazine

  • notes from work (cause I'm doing some work from home this weekend)

  • Work ID and key

  • bottle of water

  • and usually during the week I have a lunch bag and south beach snack bar for the train ride home

Now I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect everything commuter bag, because while the size of the tote bag is perfect, the organiztions is a mess. I mean, think of all that stuff up there being in a tote bag when I need my keys....which inevitably fall to the bottom everytime. It drives me crazy! So last week I ordered this little beauty (in eggplant, cause I'm on a purple kick!) from eBags. To appreciate, you really have to click on the link and check out the pictures of the inside!!
