We have an umbrella, a lunch bag, a computer bag, my purse, a bag of miscellaneous stuff and a coffee. I woke up this morning and realized that the shoulder aches are not part of pregnancy sleeping at all, but actually a result of treating my body like a mule.
Time to downsize and organize.
So, I emptied and laid out the important pieces.
That’s still a lot, but I should be able to find (or make) a bag to fit. After all, if I can pack a bag for a three and a half hour flight for me, Mike and Little Man, this should be a breeze.
I decided to work from the inside out.
Using a cereal box, some leftover material and the instructions on Fresh Crush, I made a purse organizer like this one:
This takes care of glasses, power brick, granola bar (Big Girl Snacks pt 1), pens, stamps, Baby Snacks, wallet, phone (which was used to take the photo!), Moleskine and camera, lip balm and roller perfume (photoed but not listed above).
The umbrella was dumped. I left one in my office, one in my car and one at home. Shouldn’t need any more than that.
Now I just need to find (or make) a bag to fit the organizer, lunch, the cable bag and my laptop.
And so, Santa, you see why I really need the Sew Serendipity Bags book!!
