What's In A Guy's Bag?

I've grown accustomed to holding something while I walk. When my hands don't have anything to hold on to as I move, I tend to walk in a peculiar way. That's why I never leave the house without a bag or a long wallet in my grip. I know that it makes me look like a college student, especially because I go to work in casual clothes, but I just shrug it off and feel privileged. I mean, at least I get to earn money while wearing comfortable sneakers and jeans while others have to wear heavy leather shoes and heat-trapping slacks.

My school office bag (I love biking!)

Now, we've all read those blog posts about what women have in their bag. The usual stuff are make-up, face powder, lip gloss -- things that are associated with their gender. But what about men? Have you ever wondered what's inside a guy's bag? Since neckties, gaming equipment, and testosterone are mostly identified with males, do you expect a typical guy to bring these on any given day?

Let's see what's in MY bag, shall we? On a normal work day, the contents would be these:

Looks like a lot, huh? Yes, I have such organizing skills. Believe it or not, I can fit even MORE stuff than that inside my bag. Here's a closer look at the items:

A bag within a bag (Wet tissue, perfume, alcohol, toothbrush, toothpaste, and drugs medicine)

Nokia E63 (Review coming soon)

Jacket (It's cold in the office.)

Umbrella (It never leaves the bag. You never know when it will rain!)

Baunan (I eat packed lunch at work.)

Earphones (I feel incomplete without them.)

Keys (My parents lock the gates as early as 9:00 PM.)

Notepad, post-it, and ballpen (Work essentials)

Long wallet (The "other" bag)

Here are the runners-up (the ones I seldom bring):

Phone charger and eyeglass case

There you go! Now that you've seen what I bring with me to work, if you need anything from these (especially the wet tissue *wink*) just go ahead and ask. LOL! By the way, I'm not saying that I represent all the guys out there who use bags. I'm just one sample of the whole population, plus it's a personal thing, so I'm sure we're all different. But, who knows, there might really be a guy who carries testosterone in his bag every day.

What about you? What's in your (or your man's) bag?

  1. Sobrang konti lang yung guys na kilala ko na laging may dalang bag. In fairness, kitang kita yung pagka-organized mo :)

  2. Nyahahaha, obvious ba masyado? Lol! Thanks, Dani! Iba talaga ako maglakad pag walang dalang bag, weird talaga. Hahaha.

  3. Ha - I love it! I HAVE wondered what guys carry in their bags - I figured it was a bunch of video games or a HUGE black book full of girls' telephone numbers. Hee. Thanks for sharing - and thanks for visiting my blog! :)

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love this post! Definitely great to see the guy's perspective! Have a great weekend!

  5. This is a post I've never seen before - good to know that guys carry around just as much stuff as women do! it also saves us carrying your stuff in our bags! lol ;)

  6. wow, you carry quite a lot in your bag! but everything is so organized! love this post, thank you for coming by my blog and pointing in this direction!

  7. @Drama Queen: My pleasure! There certainly is no black book in there, but if I had a game console, say a PSP, it would definitely be included. Hahaha! Thanks for leaving a comment! =)

    @WhatMissLoves: I had to do it! There's not much blog posts that voice out our side. Thanks for dropping by! =)

    @Catherine: LOL! That happens indeed. Well, perhaps it's about time that you tell your man to bring his own bag. Haha! Thanks for taking time to visit my blog. =)

    @Veronice TM: Thank you, too! Actually, my bag becomes too heavy sometimes that it becomes deformed. My organizing skills can't save that one! Hahaha.

  8. That's the coolest post I've ever seen, honestly! I love WIMB posts, but (as you can guess) I've only seen the other perspective!
    I did a similar post a couple of weeks ago, you can check it here:

  9. Thanks, Lily! It's nice indeed to see things in a different light. I'll check that out. Thanks for dropping by!
