walking pharmacy && what I keep in my work bag
I have gone from working 28hrs outside the home to 60hrs outside the home. This has made me have to multi-task and plan very well for my week. I have a calendar on my phone && utilize it, but my lifeline is a physical planner that is color coded && highlighted. I take it with me everywhere. Since I am spending so many hours working outside the home, I had to create a "mobile home office" of sorts. I have it broken down into 3 varying sized makeup bags. 1 from Estee Lauder and 2 from Mark. I have a specific purse that I use for work && keep them all in it along with myyy planner.
This is my "walking pharmacy" bag [got the name from OrganizedLikeJen on youtube, check her out]. The makeup bag is by estee lauder. In it I keep a little first aid kit that I got in the dollar bin at Target, a powder compact, lip balm, a travel deodorant [I'm NOT a morning person and forget more times than I remember to put my deodorant on at home], peppermint oil [for nausea], and my antibiotic eyedrops for after my Avastin eye shots for my POHS.
This is my favorite bag! [I have a serious office supply addiction] The makeup bag is by mark. I split it's contents into 2 pictures. On the bottom left there are varying post-it notes [yup that's a hello kitty post-it pad!], brads, happyyy face stickers [this may seem really lame, but I use them to reward myself on days I completed everything and had a good day. I stick it on the corresponding day in my planner], and circle labels [you'll see in my next post what I use those for]. In the bottom right picture is my paperclips, pens, && highlighters. I am a little OCD when it comes to color coding...
My last bag is also available from mark. It's quite a bit larger than the other two. This one houses my charging cables and my kindle fire. I have a lot of down time at work so I take advantage and read.
