In this thread, post a list or pictures of What You Carry in your Horizontal Freudian Slip (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/700/TB0345). We will add your packing list to the Horizontal Freudian Slip page to help give other people a better idea of what the bag can hold.

Would love to hear how people are using this in 2011. Any thoughts?

OK, I know lots of people have Horizontal Freudian Slips! The first three people to share their packing list here get a small surprise (email your address to me: darcy@tombihn.com)

I take my Horizontal Freudian Slip in with me to meetings, so I don't have to schlep my whole Tri-Star (unless I'm bringing manipulatives, see toys) which I use as a travel bag and briefcase. In the front left zipper pocket I have three eggs of silly putty. In the second pocket I have a cache of Hammond's butterscotch candies. Just under the zipper pockets in the slip pockets I have several packages of post it notes, next to those my cell phone, one sharpie marker and two pencils. And one night-time reading light. On the flip side I have six file folders, one for each project I'm working on, a spiral bound notebook, and a book I'm reading.

It's should be noted that I write for children. Picture books and curriculum. Hence the silly putty, and candy! Best job ever!

These days I use the horizontal freudian slip for travel inside a TriStar or other clothes bag I am using (of the non-TB variety). Generally I have a legal pad (A4 paper size), 2-3 folders, several writing implements, ID cards, cable/charger for my iphone and charger as well as i pad if I am carrying that with me, a couple of AA batteries for my wireless keyboard too. All very humdrum stuff.

(I don't use it much at home as I generally take smaller bags these days or use my Synapse - for which a nicely sized Freudian slip would be wonderful(!).)

I move my Horizontal Freudian slip from my Tristar to my Zephyr to my Cadet depending on how much I need to carry.

Typically inside:
Paper stuff that I can't turn electronic
USB hub
Pens and a highliter
Emergency toothpaste and travel toothbrush
back up business cards
LED Lenser flashlight

I only have a vertical slip and now I feel like I am missing something?
It goes in my Brain Bags though and provides great utility.
Can this be considered Spam?
I kind of hope so!

Use it in my Tristar which is now my daily bag for commuting to work.

Business cards
50 sheet legal pad in back pocket
account specific manila folders in other back pocket
upper right front zippered pocket: wireless usb (maxell air stash) this is my got to importnat doc and presentation storage device, assorted USB drives
upper left longer zipped pocket: ipad and jambox power cords
ipad and jambox adaptor in one fron pocket

I find it very convenient and actually use my Freudian slip at my office. I have it hanging behind me on a hook. It's a convenient sucker!
