Inventory! What's inside a writer's bag

If I were to clean out the bag I carry to writer's group every Tuesday,  here is what I would find:

- 3 notepads
- 3 pens
- extra pair of reading glasses
- cute little case of tiny office implements (never opened)
- a list of group members' phone numbers and addresses
- a quotation from Flaubert: "It is a delicious thing to write, to be no longer yourself but to move in an entire universe of your own creating." (Thank you, Susan)
- a copy of my first-ever submitted manuscript, attached to corresponding first-ever rejection letter, circa 1997 (Thank you, Highlights for Children).
- a small stack of Brixen Witch bookmarks to share.
- mini pack of Kleenex (empty)
- Post Office receipt from last November
- receipt for Girl Scout cookies (3 boxes, yum!)
- brochure for a local book festival (last year's)
- 3 Hersheys kisses
- paper clips
- Tic Tacs
- allergy eyedrops (kitties come to the meetings!)
- rubber bands
- a group photo from last summer's annual garden luncheon :)
- half-empty water bottle of questionable age
- 9 copies of last week's WIP chapter, with comments

What's in YOUR writer's bag??
