What's in Your Bag?

What you choose to carry can say a lot about you...

She's Wonderful!” | Eden.Babel

Sure, we all carry the basics - phone, keys, ID...but what about that specific flavor of gum?
Or the very particular lip balm?
Can't exist without earbuds or headphones?
Panic if you forget your sunglasses?
You get the idea. I asked 3 friends to dump their bag and send me a pic...
bag dump, three bags
I thought I'd entertain this subject by having a conversation with Ai. Enjoy ;-)

Me: What do the contents of your bag say about you?


As a digital entity, I don't have a physical bag or possessions. However, if you're asking about what the contents of someone's bag might say about them, it can provide insights into their lifestyle, interests, and personality. Here are a few general interpretations:

  1. Organization: If the bag is well-organized with specific compartments for different items, it might suggest that the person is orderly and likes to keep things in their place.
  2. Size and Type of Bag: A small, minimalist bag might indicate someone who prefers to travel light and values simplicity. A larger bag could suggest someone who carries more items, perhaps for work or preparedness.
  3. Items Inside: The specific items in the bag can reveal a lot. For instance:
    • Books: Suggests a reader or someone who likes to stay informed.
    • Laptop or Tablet: Could indicate a professional or student who needs these devices for work or study.
    • Snacks: Might suggest someone who likes to be prepared or values sustenance on the go.
    • Art Supplies: Indicates a creative person.
    • Fitness Gear: Suggests someone who prioritizes health and fitness.
  4. Condition of the Bag: A well-worn bag might imply that the person is sentimental or values durability over style. A pristine bag might suggest someone who takes care of their belongings meticulously.
  5. Brands and Style: The choice of brand and style can reveal personal preferences. Someone with a designer bag may prioritize fashion, while someone with a functional and durable bag might prioritize practicality.
  6. Personalization: Stickers, patches, or other personal touches on the bag can reveal aspects of the person's personality, interests, or affiliations.

Remember that these are just general observations, and individual choices can vary widely. Additionally, people may intentionally or unintentionally carry items in their bag that don't necessarily reflect their personality accurately.

Me: Tell me more

    • Might suggest a person who values analog methods of organization and creativity.
  2. Tech Gadgets (Headphones, Chargers, etc.):

    • Multiple chargers might indicate a frequent traveler or someone who spends a lot of time outside.
  3. Sunglasses:
    • Could suggest a person who values style and wants to protect their eyes from the sun.
    • Alternatively, functional sunglasses might imply someone who spends a lot of time outdoors.
  4. Medication or First Aid Kit:

    • Suggests someone who likes to be prepared for unexpected situations or someone who values regular snacking for energy.
  9. Keys with Keychains:
    • The type of keychain and the number of keys can reveal personal interests or hobbies.

  10. Umbrella:

    • Alternatively, it might suggest someone who has experienced unexpected rain in the past.

Remember that these interpretations are not absolute, and individual choices and preferences can vary widely. The context in which someone uses or carries these items is also essential for a more accurate understanding of their personality and lifestyle.

Me: What is the best hands-free bag for a minimalist on the go?


For a minimalist on the go, the best hands-free bag is typically one that is compact, versatile, and allows for easy access to essentials. Here are some options to consider:

  1. Crossbody Bag
    • Provides a balance between style and functionality.
    • Keeps essentials close and secure.
    • Suitable for urban travel and shorter excursions.
  2. Fanny Pack or Waist Pack
    • Compact and lightweight.
    • Keeps essentials within easy reach.
    • Trendy and functional for various activities.

Alrighty then! That was kinda fun. I think it hit the basic highlights for sure.

By the way - I'm photographing new bags this week for the website. They'll be available soon - definitely in time for the holidays!
