What's in my Backpack

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Am I the only one who finds "What's in my Bag" posts absolutely fascinating? Since I usually don't use a purse most days I have class but use a backpack everyday, I wanted to share with y'all what I keep in my backpack for a day of classes.

First off, let's talk about the backpack. I have this Northface and have used it all throughout college. I was a tote bag girl in high school but realized I needed something a bit more substantial for lugging things all around campus all day. I've used it for three years now and it has held up amazingly well- worth every penny!

Laptop- I think this may be the most obvious thing to keep in my backpack given that I need it for all of my classes haha! I have a MacBook Pro and absolutely love it!

Laptop Charger- On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'm on campus from 9:30 AM till 3:15 PM and am on my computer for a good chunk of that time so I definitely need to bring my charger with me (or my 2 PM class would be a bit harder with a dead computer).

Binders- I am definitely a binder kind of a girl when it comes to organization. Each class (minus my math class that requires a composition book) has its own agenda and I find that it keeps everything so much more organized as I can keep everything in the order it needs to be in to make sense. Let me know if y'all would be interested in a blog post on this!

Agenda- The one item I don't think I could survive college without! I rely a bit too much on my agenda and bring it to class to keep my to-do lists updated and to update any dates that come up!

Pencil Pouch- My pencil pouch is looking a little rough but does the job of carrying around the million pens and highlighters I insist on bringing to class with me!

AirPods- A bit extra but I love my AirPods! They connect so easily to all of my devices and the fact that they're wireless makes things so much better as you aren't restricted to sitting in one spot. I keep these in my bag for studying as well as going to the gym after class.

Hand Sanitizer (different scent)- I didn't bring any hand sanitizer with me to Italy this summer and was constantly using my friends so after that trip, I always keep some with me. As an education major, I'm around a lot of germs thanks to those sweet tiny humans so I try my hardest not to get sick. My mom sent me this fun foam one from Bath & Body Works and I love that it is not as boring as regular hand sanitizer (the little things y'all!).

Lip Balm- I always keep a lip balm in my bag and now that it's cold out, I find myself reaching for it more! Mine is by Fresh Cosmetics and while it's on the pricy side, it's worth the splurge!

Blue Light Glasses- I spend a lot of time on my computer and honestly, my eyes were starting to hurt because of it. I bought these blue light glasses last semester and love them!

Water Bottle- I always try to keep a bottle of water on me and my favorite is my Yeti as it keeps ice cold forever! I bought a lid that closes it completely, which lets me tuck it into my water bottle pocket in my bag for walking to each class.

Sunglasses (similar)- A bit silly but I can't go anywhere without a pair of sunglasses! I'm currently borrowing this pair from my mom but I love a good pair of aviators!

Wallet- A lot of my friends use phone wallets and love them but I just use a regular wallet! Nothing too crazy!

Umbrella- One of my friends freshman year kept an umbrella in her bag all the time and I thought it was the smartest thing ever. I really need to get better at checking the weather before walking out the door but in the mean time, I'll always have my umbrella in my bag ready to go!

Keys- Kind of a given now that I drive to campus everyday but I always have my car keys on me! Even last year when I wasn't driving as much, I would keep them on me as I would have my dorm key on them and keeping everything in one spot made things a lot less complicated!

What do you keep in your backpack? Let me know in the comments!
