    ...what do you take with you?

    It seems on many days I can't leave the house withough multiple bags weighing me down. On a typical day I will have:

    My messanger bag, which holds my daily planner, a book to read during the day, iPod, gum, wallet, cellphone, and mail.

    My gym bag, which hold my shower/shave kit, shower shoes, sneakers, shorts, socks, jock, tshirt, ball cap.

    My lunch bag & 1 gal water bottle

    Also included might be the drycleaning, garbage to drop off at the street, library books or movies to return, projects to drop off for friends I've completed them for, or the dog for vet appointments or such.

    Without my truck, I don't know how I would function.

    What about you?

    I can never take that much crap with me at any given time, so I make multiple trips instead. A trip dedicated to the gym with all the gym stuff. Then head home and drop off everything and head back out again. Good thing everything is close by in a way. But still time consuming nonetheless.

    Need my phone, wallet, swiss army knife, breath strips, compact mirror, keys, and eye drops at all times. Which makes winter easier, cause I've got more pockets to store things in, come summer, it's a nightmare.

Digital SLR cause I love taking photos, iPod, keys, Leatherman (totally comes in handy and I always end up using it daily), 2L of water, clothes of course icon_lol.gif, some pocket money and a few snacks for the day in case I'm away from the apartment all day.icon_cool.gif

    Before I leave the house I always check for 4 things.

    1. Wallet
    2. Keys
    3. Phone
    4. Ipod

    Then I carry a backpack and I keep my lunch and I always keep a small umbrella in it.

    I've been told that I am the most unencumbered person my coworkers have ever seen. I took it as a compliment and it was with regard to the amount of stuff I travel with. In general I have:

    1. Wallet
    2. Keys
    3. Phone
    4. Book

    I leave as much stuff in my car as I can so I don't have to traipse it back and forth from my house

    but the best way to remember not to forget anything when I leave is to recite this is saying

    .... Did you remember?

    Testicles, spectacles wallet and keys? icon_wink.gif

    I leave the house very specifically. In the right pocket is the cell phone and the chapstick. In the left pocket are my car/house keys. In the back left pocket is the wallet. In my briefcase/man satchel (call it what you will) I have my planner, work journal, whatever work I have that's pertinent (that I of course brought home with me), gum, cologne, store keys, pens, ect. I usually have clothes for the gym, and keep a gym bag in my car with my gym gear (swim suits, kickboard, cycling shoes, ect).

    I'm curious to know though, do you have a man satchel? If so, what's it look like? Mine's black pebbled leather messenger bag style, with just a front flap. Very simple and clean. I like it lots.

    I leave the house every morning with 3 bags and my pockets full. Usually I have a hard time making it through the back door. Here is what I am carrying:

    1. Laptop bag for work containing laptop (duh!), lunch, and snacks

    2. Bag for school containing at least 2 textbooks, 2 binders and misc. other stuff

    3. Gym bag with towel, shoes, clothes, products, etc.

    In my pockets I am carrying keys, cell phone, and wallet. Thank God for the iPhone, otherwise I would need to carry a separate iPod as well.

    Messenger bag with phone, keys, card holder, mp4 player, a water bottle, random reading material.

    School days would include a laptop. Gym days, I'd just squeeze in a spare change of clothes in my bag.

    I don't have the option, living so far away from everything. Once I'm out the door, thats it, there is no going back. Somedays I make multiple trips from the truck to the house just hauling all the crap out there.

    i love my mornings now, they seem so much easier then all of y'alls. I wake up and in 5 t 10 minutes i'm out the door with my keys, wallet, phone and can of chew (if it's not already in the truck)

    I'm with GQJock, in that i can pretty much live out of my truck, i keep my gym clothes in there, some extra clothes and just about anything else i might need. why bring it in to set it on the floor and not touch it until you bring it back out?

    Communicator, tricorder, phaser.

    Seriously though, my office and lab are connected to my house by a breezeway. The gym is downstairs. I don't always take anything. During weekdays, I'll wear cargo shorts because I need to carry: phone, pens, sharpies, leatherman tool, safety glasses.

    The dogs get really excited if I put on shoes or a hat, so I guess they are saying that the answer is "shoes."

    Crimthann, if more people left their house in the morning with two of those particular items: gym bag and lunch bag, their would be less of an obesity problem in America. Thanks for doing your part, son.
