What’s In My Bag… Conference Edition


Preparing to attend a Blog Conference can be stressful and exciting for so many different reasons: Registration, Hotel, Flight but the most exciting part for me was getting together a list of the Blogger Essentials and items that I felt I needed to attend a Blog Conference and feel fully prepared. For me, that included those things that I knew I would need to make it through a day of networking, interacting and sharing…the things in my bag.

As I got ready to attend the SITSGirls Bloggy Boot Camp ATL I decided to share them with you here in the…

What's In My Bag...Conference Edition | MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.com

These are the Blogger Essentials that I knew I had to have to feel prepared:

1 – My Tote: I had a large Coach Tote bag that was very deep and had a lot of room for all the things I knew I wanted to have with me.

2 – iPhone: What Blogger can be anywhere without their phone? Not this one. I don’t leave my house without my phone so I already knew this would get first priority in my bag.

3 – Water Bottle: I saw this on so many Blogger Bag Lists and agreed that I would definitely want a way to carry my own water and have access to it through the day.

4 – Glasses: I brought an extra set of glasses because even though I was wearing my contacts I wanted to have my glasses as a back up in case of any contact malfunctions.

5 – Sunglasses: What can I say? I don’t leave home without them…LOL

6 – Business Cards/Holder: If you plan on going anywhere that you want to network and leave a lasting impression your Business Cards are a MUST Have.

7 – Notebook/Journal: You always want to have a way to take down quick handwritten notes and ideas.

8 – Breath Mints: You never want to offend anyone and since network is usually a lot of chatting and up close interaction breath mints are definitely something you want to have handy.

9 – Chargers: You never want that low battery signal to be an early end to a great day. Bring your chargers.

10 – Portable Charger: As a backup to having your plug in charger and chords bringing a portable pre-charged device is always a great idea just in case outlets are not available.

11 – EOS Lip Balm: This was something I knew I would definitely need as I can’t function without my lips being right…LOL

12 – Wallet: Personal ID, Cash, Credit Cards etc.

13 – Laptop: I opted to bring my laptop instead of my iPad because I wanted to have full access to any sites or information the presenters would offer. You can totally bring an iPad instead or even in addition to. I think it is a true personal choice.

Now these are simply a few of the Blogger or Conference Essential items but don’t forget I chose this tote so that I could carry one bag throughout the conference and still have all that I needed. Watch my What’s In My Bag…Conference Edition Video below to see what else I had in my amazing Tote!

    Hey there Mrs. Tee.

    I found your post on the Monday Mommy blog hop. It's nice to meet you! Coach is my favorite brand and this color is fresh! All the things you listed here are definite must-haves!

    Passing this along! Hope you're having a great Monday!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hi!! So happy to meet you 🙂 Coach was my very first \’name\’ bag and will always have my heart – isn\’t the pink lovely and the Cora inside matches perfectly 😀

      Thanks for sharing and supporting. Hope to see you again next week!

  • notesfromtheshallowend

    Great post! Totally agree with all of these. The only thing I would add is snacks (Lara bars are great to take along) and a sweater or wrap. Those conference rooms are always freezing.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks!! I actually had granola bars (I showed them in the video) but forgot to add them to the written list. I thought I would be freezing but our conference room was actually really comfortable but that is a great add on to the list for sure 🙂

  • Tenns

    This is an awesome list lady! I'm going to be putting together a conference post soon, but wanted to do it after I attended Niche. I've been to three conferences so far and I've learned different things from different ones, as each one you may need or not need certain things. I think you hit the nail on the head with your post though, because its a great general list of the basics. I know many will find it so resourceful!

      Thanks Hun!!! That tote seriously had everything in it 🙂 I’m sure you some awesome tips and I can’t wait to see them. I’m still working on my recap post with a bit of what I learned – thanks again Lovie!!!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! Thanks Lovie! You know I had to have pink…yes that charger is my best friend! I even bought the Teenager one in the airport on my way home – no more ‘my phone died’ excuses from him LOL 😉 Great minds think alike 😀
      I can’t!! I’m already searching around for my next conference…LOL xoxoxo

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha…yeah you can really tell what my signature color (and print) is 😀 Downside to living abroad…? No Way!! Maybe you can make one in the future but I\’d love to experience the many places and cultures you have.

  • Dionne

    Chile…the charger and back up charger is serious business when at a conference. You're meeting so many people and doing so much social media, that your batter lasts all of 3 hours LOL Great post!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes. They. Are. Outlets are like finding gold during a conference so I was so happy to have those because like you said, between tweets, instagram posts and trying to connect with people your phone is working overtime! Thanks so much Dionne 😀

  • Erin

    I've only been to one blogger conference, but you hit the nail on the head with everything you're bringing along! Seriously. Smart calls on ALL of these items, especially the portable charger, and I'm amazed you can fit it all into your bag! (That's always the problem I have — fitting everything in my tote without it weighing a ton!) Have fun!

      Which one did you attend? I think BloggyBootCamp was great as my first but I am definitely already searching for me next one 🙂 Thanks!!! I definitely didn\’t want to need something and not have it. The only thing that added a bit of weight was my water bottle when full LOL
