OK it’s a very French thing I realise, but I also don’t like carrying ‘stuff’ in my pockets, fine in winter when you are wearing a jacket, but in summer I find my shorts are weighed down with ‘stuff’
Well what sort of ‘stuff’ are we talking about….
Car keys, house keys, magnifier (my close in eyesight is terrible these days), mobile phone, Filofax – which is also my wallet, a pen and a torch (for night time!)
I also carry a small compact camera a lot of the time too.
So I found I already had a bag that I wasn’t using, it was used for my portable CD player…. infact this one…
I now use an iPod… ah add that to the list of ‘stuff’, the above fitted in to the bag like this:
It has a nice soft lining for both compartments and it’s quite discreet and compact. So I gathered all my ‘stuff’ together and tried it in the bag:
Wonderful, except the Filofax is a little too tall… ah but I have a Pocket Filofax, a quick try and that converted ok to my Wallet/Filofax, gather my ‘stuff’ together again:
And this looked more promising…. and in the bag it all fits including the compact camera:
Sorted…. it’s also fairly shower proof as I discovered the other day in Niort!!
