Stare Into the Void With Me - What's in My Bag?

If you know me at all this probably won't come as a surprise to you, but I tend to carry around a lot of things. 'Too many' according to some people, up until the moment where I'm carrying the exact item they need. Because I want to bring all of my belongings everywhere at all times, I like a bag whose size is comparable to, say, the void.

The bag on the right is my current void-sized bag. It can hold all of my stuff and for the things that don't fit, there's a gazillion tiny pockets. For parties, I use my Killstar coffin bag, if only to stop me from dragging along the same amount of stuff when I'm also planning to dance.

Pictured above is the standard amount of things I carry in my bag. Sometimes I'll bring more, but never less. If they'd make bags that were big enough, I'd carry around an apocalypse emergency pack at all times. My keys are not pictured because I'm paranoid.

Behold, my glorious Welcome to Night Vale phone case.
It may look like I'm only posting this picture to brag about my amazing phone case, but there is another reason. When I wanted to buy this particular bag, it was extremely difficult to find pictures of the actual size so I was slightly taken aback by how small it was when I finally saw it in real life. Not taken aback enough not to buy it, though. I like a challenge.

And pictured above, the standard contents of my party bag. Even though I hardly ever need it, I always bring something to touch up my make-up; I just know that my lipstick will get messed up if I don't carry it around because that's just how the universe works.

Are you as obsessive about the contents of your bag as I am or, shock and horror, are you comfortable leaving the house with everything you need stuffed in your pockets? And if so, how do you live?
