What’s in your bag?

I'm not sure what it says about me, but I love packing my bag for a trip - making sure everything is neatly stowed away and easy to get at when it's needed.

Today I thought I'd go ultra light, and commute with my smallest bag.

I managed to fit in: half a liter of water, a cereal bar, a pair of jeans, socks & spare pants, a t-shirt, my phone, wallet and keys, a small torch, an emergency whistle & a stripped down first aid kit (because you never know).

Lost in transition from my usual bigger bag were: an A5 moleskine, iPad, 6 pens, a highlighter, 2 pairs of headphones, some loose change, a handful of old receipts, another torch and a few cables for assorted stuff.

I never usually need those things. I may as well have been carrying half a brick most days.
And it was great to feel light on the way in.

What do you carry with you every day, and what bag do you use?
