One way I squeeze a few more things into my day is by making sure I never leave the house without some type of craft along with me.
At all times I have 4 to 6 bags packed full of all the supplies needed to complete simple crafts sitting on a shelf near our front door.
I bring these bags to the pool, to a meeting with a friend for coffee, to a friend’s house for an afternoon visit or along on long car rides with my husband driving.
I don’t spend much on my bags. Most are from yard sales or were freebies.
I like bags with zippered tops to avoid loosing pieces in transit. I prefer bags with flat bottoms so that they stand up. Pockets are always a plus to hold supplies.
By carrying these bags with me where ever I go, I am able to make enough crafts every year to give as gifts as well as sell.
Perhaps crafting is not your thing. How about reading? In addition to crafts I also carry along a book, magazine or a few e-books on my kindle app. every where I go so I can squeeze in a bit of reading wherever I am.
Do you work on a computer? I have a bag, that fits my net book, blogging binder, and other writing needs perfectly for an impromptu writing session, should one arise.
With a little bit of thought you can come up with your own “To Go” bags.
