I have been called many things in my life. One description is quite accurate...the "bag lady". I have a bag for the gym; one for church; one for school; one for crochet projects; and one that I call my "to go" bag. This is a bag that I try to keep stocked with all the things that would be necessary to keep me busy for lets say, waiting at a doctor's appointment. I usually have a book, small crochet project, and my letter writing mobile kit. This bright, cheery, yellow contraption has been my kit for a good year or more now. It is lightweight, fairly sturdy ,cheap, and has been quite serviceable all this time. However, it is very thin and I am always trying to push the boundaries by cramming more and more supplies into the kit...to where it is quite bulging...and I am quite afraid the side latch, which is just plastic, is about to pop off!
"Old Yeller" ( aka Yellow)
"Old Yeller" has served me well this summer in particular. I dragged it to the airport, also took it aboard the Amtrack. I used it once on the banks of a creek, and another time at the beach .I will take it anywhere I think I might have a spare minute to write a letter.
This kit is able to hold the basics, stationery, stickers, stamps, and pens. But, I have been in the market for a new, sturdier, and of course LARGER kit for some time. (But one that would still fit in my bag).
This is what I have settled on. It is very sturdy and probably twice the depth as "Old Yeller".
Oh my, a key! Of course. To hide all my deep dark secrets...haha.
Things are settling into this new "home" for letter writing on the go. I have included the following:
1. Stationery with envelopes
4. pens, pencils
5. small assortment of washi tape
6. small scissors
7. glue stick
8. ink pad
9. rubber stamp
I will probably have room to put my pencil bag in as well , which holds a variety of other items such as wax seal,wax, matches, pens...
It all fits so snugly and in a nice organized way. And of course the best part about it, it is available! Do you have a letter writing kit that you use on the go? What do you put in it?
Supposedly War and Peace was written by the author on his morning train commute...when he had some spare moments. What do you do with your spare moments?
