This answer is really, really super late but here's my take on Jan's Coffeebreak:
- Finance: cash, credit cards, atm cards, IDs, Discount cards, passbook, checkbook, receipts
- Toiletries: tissue, flushuble toilet seat cleaner, 2 pcs emergency toilet seat cover (for the kids), cologne, hanky
- Gadgets: cellphone, Palm TX w/ earphones, Digicam, extra 2G SD card, smartbro & mini-Numbers keypad for laptop (for accounting)
- Others: Prayer booklet, keys, pen, lipgloss
With the toiletries, I used to bring with me toothbrush, toothpaste & other girlie stuff when I was working, but am now a work-at-home mom so no need to bring everything. Let's say everything that is essential to us is inside my bag.. Always ready, on the go specially when we tag along the kids to go somewhere.
