Stephen recently blogged about how people he knows have a “kit” of some sort that goes with their role or job. He was curious about what other people used for work on a daily basis and invited me to link up.
What’s in my kit
Since I’m a dog sitter, I carry around a few items pretty much 24/7:
-Client’s house keys
-Hat (in the summer)
-Mittens (in the winter)
My kit is pretty much the same, regardless of whether I’m going to work or whether I’m going for a day out.
I work in an office, so all I take with me is my bag (wallet, phone, glasses, keys, lipstick, hand sanitizer) and a packed lunch. I recently got a leather satchel-style backpack which I really like. 🙂
Not gonna lie: hand sanitizer is probably the best thing to have available!
It seems like you’re quite the minimalist, Grace! I love it! Also, a leather satchel-type backpack sounds so cute!
My laptop, charger, mouse, and mouse pad are my kit! Bonus items are a binder with the company contact list and a spiral notebook with random notes, logins, etc. 🙂
I like your ball cap!
Having a notepad constantly is a must have for me, along with a couple of biros.
Loved learning what’s in your kit 🙂
Thanks for the compliment on my hat!! It’s a Pittsburgh Pirates hat!
I make sandwiches and manage people 😉 So I like to have a Sharpie, a hair tie, a water bottle and a smile <—cheesy
The smile… kind of an echo of that old WW1 song about packkng up your troubles jn you old kit bag!
I’ve never heard that song! But, sometimes my job does feel like war 😉
Ellie – this was the one: “Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag (And S…: http://youtu.be/kXcs1Vv3YlE I’m not sure if it was originally British, Australian or American.
Love it, Ellie!! A smile is the best!
If I’m editing photos then it’s my laptop, headphones, planner, and Starbucks app on my phone (because no doubt I’m sitting at Starbucks editing photos, ha!). And if I’m taking photos then it’s all my camera equipment and depending on the age of those being photographed – often stuffed animals to draw out smiles. 😉
Out of interest, how much camera equipment do you need to take with you?
Yay for Starbucks!! I always mean to take my laptop there to work on my book! I think coffee + a different atmosphere would do me good, haha.
And how cute (and smart!) that you take stuffed animals with you for little kids to get them to smile!
My job role just changed, and goes into effect Monday (blog post to come) but it doesn’t really require much in a “kit” other than a packed lunch perhaps!
Mmmm lunch ☺
Can’t wait to hear about this! And lunch = vital, haha.
So pleased to see this one Allie: thanks for linking up! And, if people are wondering what’s in my kit bag, voila: A linkup: Show us your kits! http://newciteaux.blogspot.com/2016/06/a-linkup-show-us-your-kits.html
Thanks for inviting me to the linkup, Stephen! I had fun 🙂
