This is what’s in my bag – which I carry every day.
It defers a little bit depending on the occasion, but these are the basic items that I carry pretty much daily bases.
Especially when I am going to work, these are the only things I carry.
I mean actual Cash Money. You can read more on my blog, but I totally switched to using only cash and chargeable card(Octopus card - for transportation) instead of Credit card. It has simplified my life very much.
2. Credit Card
Even though I switched to only using Cash, I do have some occasions where I have to pay credit card, such as, when I have to pay in advance and collect money afterward or for company expenses that are claimable.
I cannot live without a good lipstick. No matter how small my purse is, it is the first thing I put into my bag. It gives me little boost of confidence!
4. Eye Drop
I really want to do eye surgery for correcting my eyesight. But until then, I need to wear lenses. Even on weekends at home, I prefer not to wear anything at all then wearing glasses because I hate the feeling of wearing glass, it feels so unnatural no matter how light it is. So sometimes when I am out, my eye gets dry and that is such an uncomfortable feeling that can totally ruin your night. I always carry one or two eye drops for those occasions.
My frequency of listening to music has dropped massively since I started to live simple, as I appreciate the natural sound and be mindful about what’s around me. However, you always get into situations where you want to listen to certain podcast without disturbing others or there’s such an annoying (people or) sound you just need to block it off. Having Airpods has definitely upgraded my life.
These are my 5 essentials for everyday carry. Since living simple and minimized what I carry, not only my shoulder felt lighter but also my steps to hatred way to work has improved.
What is your everyday carry items?
Are you the type who tries to carry massive bag for every possible emergency occasions?
