While flying frantically through your busy life, it’s possible to organize your life and responsibilities with tote bags.
- returns that need to be made
- long overdue library book found under the couch
- packages that need to be mailed
As I begin to organize things to bring or send to someone, I begin a brown paper bag in the closet with their name printed in black, bold letters. As things are purchased, found or finished, they are put into the bag. If it is to be mailed, I might even pick out the box ahead of time and put that in the closet labeled. When it is full, it is mailed.
My youngest keeps a toy bag packed in the van. She is encouraged to keep a few toys, books, personal items, water bottle, and a snack. Living in a busy area, one accident on the highway and your commute home just got 29 minutes longer. Baseball season is here, and games can get long for the little ones.
Now that it is baseball season I have a baseball bag. Because it can be chilly, I keep a fleece blanket, extra hats and gloves, handwarmers, snacks, and kleenex.
Just for fun, I looked up bag in the Bible.
Didja’ know David organized his five smooth stones in a shepherd’s bag? 1 Samuel 17:40
The best use I found for a bag yet was in the book of Job.
Job 14:17My transgression is sealed up in a bag,And You cover my iniquity.
Another good reason for my hubby to call me The Ol’ Bag Lady.
