Bag – Typically I buy small bags, but I’ve been loving this bag for the past few months and have been refusing to switch to a more “winter” style. White House Black Market, late summer sale, $30.
Lunch – scrounged up with whatever we had around: sunchips, grapes, cheese, and an energy bar. Albertson’s, no clue of the price!
Mittens – fingerless, mostly for my cold office. I can wear gloves while I type away! I have been loving goldish-yellow colors this fall. Target, $15
Cheapo sunglasses – I just can’t get behind $100 sunglasses. Target, $15.
Wristlet – I use this as my wallet, or I take it solo when I want to travel light. Coach. It was a gift, free!
Planner – I picked it because it had a month view in addition to the day/week pages. Hopefully it’ll help me keep my life straight the next few busy months! From CVS, $8 or so.
Notebook – I don’t always carry this but it happened to be in there that day. I imagine it was only a dollar or two.
Lipstick – Petal Attraction, Maybelline, about $8.
Lipgloss – Sephora. It was technically free gift, but I spent a lot to get that free gift!
Hand lotion – Burt’s Bee’s. I don’t know the price of it since it was part of a little gift pack.
Chapstick – Burt’s Bee’s. I always have an assortment of chapsticks in my life and I put whatever one I find first in my pocket or bag. I think this stuff is about $3.
Phone – LG. I’m not a phone geek, so it is pretty basic, but I swear by LG. I think I paid $50 or so after rebates and such. Or maybe free?
Pen – Comes in handy for my occasional ATM deposits. I hate going to see actual tellers. Free!
Hair tie – You just never know when you’ll need to pull your hair back. Very cheap!
Water bottle – Not only do I use this to stay hydrated… when it is really cold in the office I fill it with hot water and use it as a mini heater. I’m so weird. Kleen Kanteen, free because I stole it from T (he got it as a gift)
Key’s – I wanted to point out my kind of awesome little carabiner keychain I got for a few dollars at REI. I used to take my car key off my key ring to take when I went running (less jingling), and now it is a much easier task.
Book – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. This is misleading — I don’t always carry a book these days, because I don’t take public transit or often find myself with long periods of waiting around. But I started this on my plane ride back to LAX last month and have been itching to find time to finish it. This was also free, I borrowed it from my sister.
