    Besides your wallet/purse, & keys, what THINGS do you never leave home without & what do you always DO before leaving?

    - Make sure my dog is safely in his comfortable area of the house w/ the fan/heater on depending on the weather.

    - Cell phone & bluetooth

    - Wear my watch

    - Bottle of water

    - Sometimes have my sunglasses

    - Books if going to school

    - Not because I'm vain, but I hv to put on makeup (my skin isn't the best)

    (Year-round, I KEEP my gym card, towel, workout gloves, tissue box, & umbrella in the car year-round).

    Cell phone

    Give kisses and a treat to my dog OR he comes with me to go to Doggie Daycare

    Fill up the dog and cat food

    Ehhhh, that's about it I guess.

    Wow, you're a lot more organized than I am. I make sure the blinds are open for my cat to look out the window, and that she has food and fresh water and that's about it. I usually forget my cell phone, and (during school) if I have stayed up late grading papers I usually forget those also.

    Not too much....just a drink and snack incase I get hungry, grab my phone, purse, and I'm out the door. I talk to my dog to reassure him I'm coming back as if he was a kid to make myself feel better! sometimes it's sad to leave him when his little face is resting in the play pen openings with his face!

    I just shut everything off.

    I grab my purse, making sure I have my glasses and my shoes. Don't laugh...

    I am out the door. If the kids or husband are coming with I check to make sure I have them too:)

    If we don't take the dog out (and empty her WELL!!!!) there will be signs of her protest when we return.

    (Thinks....why am I the only one of the three of us to notice this????)

    A MUST: a cereal bar (cause I´m hungry at 2 or 3 pm at break)

    Everything I need is in my purse . . . phone, sunglasses, make-up for touchups, brush, etc.

    I have to have my medical bracelet, but that's it.

    Cell phone and wallet; that's about it.

    I'm a soccer mom--chairs, an umbrella, a blanket and sunscreen are always in the van.

    I make sure I have my purse, sunglasses, keys in my hand because I have locked myself out twice, and I make sure I set the house alarm!
