Inspired by this thread, for people (mostly men I may hastily assume) who don’t normally carry a bag, don’t you lose stuff all the time? If you consider that the average person needs to routinely carry around a bunch of small and valuable items, how do you keep track of stuff?
For me, I either carry a handbag or a workbag outside the home, which always contains (at a minimum) a purse/wallet (for cards, driving licence, loose change, notes, stamps), my keys, travelcard, iphone, inhaler, and sunglasses/umbrella, depending on the time of year. My bag is therefore my ‘go to’ place several times a day for stuff that I need to use regularly. On the odd occasion I go out by just stuffing my pockets, I get into all sorts of a muddle about where stuff is (particularly if I’ve just been down the pub).
So, what do you do without a bag? Are your jean pockets bursting with key bunches, loose change and credit cards? Don’t you mislay stuff both outdoors and within the home all the time? I have only one female friend who never carries a bag and she constantly loses her phone or keys, and doesn’t seem to understand that if she kept everything in one place, her life might run a little more smoothly.
