I took a photograph of what I carry in my bag these days. Compared to what I used to carry a number of years ago, it is very little.
- umbrella. I always carry an umbrella in my bag. This one is big but it is very light. I have found that the tiny Totes ones I used to carry were too small to be effective or handle wind. This is a free one my husband got somewhere but it has been amazing.
- makeup bag. This is a transparent one from H&M. I don’t carry much makeup with me. The bulk of my makeup bag is filled with aspirin, plasters, glasses cleaners and wetwipes!
- two foldable totes. I only need one but they are so light I generally carry two. I love these Loqi ones.
- reading glasses
Not shown are my keys and my phone, which I carry in my pocket.
Compared to what I used to carry, I can totally understand why my back and shoulder hates me.
