With these goodies.. I never lack for anything when out and about~ Sometimes I throw in some liquid acrylics too.. especially white.
Do you keep it in the car or just take it with you when you think you’ll need it?
I take it with me. I only have one set of the neocolor and inktense pencils and I often want them when I'm working on stuff at home... BUT now that it's portable.. I can art on the deck in the yard or in the living room a lot easier.
I tuck my wallet in there where the journals go and carry this baby with me everywhere. You never know when the urge to art will strike.
Where did you get the bottles you are using for your mediums?
Those are mini hand sanitizer bottles and I got them at the dollar store.
That mini mister doesn’t look like mine.. it looks bigger. Where did you get that?
The mister is another dollar store find and it also had hand sanitizer in it.
Are the black and brown water brushes filled with acrylic? (Just wondering the use of these instead of the regular water brushes)
I fill the water brushes almost 3/4 full with water then add drops of acrylic ink. The black has 12 drops of ink and the brown has 5 drops brown and 2 drops of black. (FW inks have a dropper in the cap)
I use the black to draw with. It's waterproof when dry (on everything I’ve tried it with) so I can paint right over the finished drawing.
The brown is a favorite.. and I use it to make shadows... I can draw with it too, but it's very thin so the lines are pale when dry.
Here are some examples of using these brushes:

Do you rinse out the brushes each time?
No, I keep them filled all the time. The cap and frequency that I use them keep them from drying out.
Any chance you’ll share a link for the tote?
I looked and didn’t find many like this out there anymore. I know that in the past I’ve seen them at wally world and craft stores. I got mine filled with scrapbooking supplies.
I did find this one by Toteally Cool.. but they are down to the last ones available.
If you ever get to Jacksonville, maybe we can art together sometime!
