Wow! I carry around with me over £2000 worth of stuff! That's really scary... I don't have insurance on anything, so imagine if I was mugged! Oh the thought really scares me :(
And just think, if I sold everything pictured above, I could buy a car... a car!
I'm actually really shocked at how much I carry with me. Even if you take out the MacBook I'd still be carrying over £1000 worth of stuff. I think I should take out insurance...
