What’s in Yo’ Bag?

I have been simply mesmerized by this growing photo group on Flickr called What’s In Your Bag? I am especially taken by the photos from men, travelers and technophiles. The content of most men’s bags seem so streamlined. How do they get away with so little “stuff?”

What's In Yo Bag?

My bag’s contents vary on a weekly basis. If I’m working on my food website or attending a lot of technology or social media events, I usually have three cameras on me (a Sony Cyber-shot, a Flip Mino and a Kodak Zi8). If it’s a crazy time at work, as it is for me now, I have my Blackberry on me (in addition to my ever-present iPhone). If I’ve been traveling, anything goes; magazines, scarves, cords for my electronics and luggage claim tickets galore. At any given time, there are about 6 kinds of chapstick or lipgloss. I can’t live without the stuff.

As many of us refocus on getting organized and ridding our lives of clutter for 2010, I wanted to finally snap a shot of my bag for the Flickr pool. It’s a fun way to memorialize a relatively calm couple of days before work craziness takes over my life again next week.

Wishing you a Happy New Year that’s as full as a busy NYC girl’s bag!

  1. Whaaat! This is such a cool idea! I think I may have to make some time take a pic and join this flickr group too. I’m moving a load of belongings from SF to SD this weekend, so it’s not exactly a good time to look at any one of my bags because they’re all bursting with way too much stuff. I also wonder how it’s possible that guys walk around with nothing. Great idea, thanks for sharing Emily AND I love that you still have my Moo Card! –sukhjit

  4. I was supposed to leave a comment a couple of hours ago but a nap was calling me, HARD, and I listened.

    My bag contents on a regular day do not usually include a TomTom and Bluetooth accessories. I have been traveling and received the TomTom for Christmas. I usually have a cream hardback notebook and a blue pen to jot down notes and pertinent information. The 2 Christmas cards on the left, I received from my Mom and Uncle they were very sweet and I teared up a bit when I read them so I decided to keep them with me for a while. 3 tubes of gloss: I love it and each reps a different mood. I tend to carry a camera around for no other reason than: What if? I drive my friends crazy with it.
