What’s (not) in my bag..

I have a flight in the morning, so thought I would clean out my backpack a bit and lighten the load, and it dawned on me after unloading that I should take a picture to embarrass remind myself to keep it minimal.. Lifehacker has been running a “What’s in our bags” series, and the crap in my backpack is quite opposite from the sparse contents of most of the Lifehacker staff posts..

The contents of the Swiss Army Ishouldreallygetasmallerone backpack:
