At TODAY we take care to recommend items we hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY may get a small share of the revenue.

Using interviews with specialists, online reviews and personal experience, TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! TODAY does have affiliate relationships with various online retailers. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.

TODAY anchor Sheinelle Jones was recently featured in Us Weekly's "What's in My Bag?" section. Jones explained that she actually used to read that section of the magazine herself. "When I got the call to do it, I was pretty excited," she said on TODAY.

Jones decided to do a live version of it on the show and she was joined by TODAY correspondent, Maria Shriver.

Let's just say, both ladies carry around some pretty interesting things!

We should note that these products were independently chosen by the TODAY anchors. The anchors are not paid to mention them and are unaffiliated with these brands. The products are simply some of their favorite things.

What's in Maria Shriver's bag?

Shriver took out a few different items. Although her bag was heavy, she said it was actually lighter than usual. "Well, I took some stuff out today cause I'm packing," she said. Aside from having "a lot" of lipstick in her bag and some hand cream, here are a few of the other things Shriver carries with her:

The first thing Shriver pulled out of her bag was Static Guard . The spray instantly releases the hold that fabrics have on one another, according to the manufacturer.

Shriver also pulled out these keto-friendly "power-up" packets.

She also had one of these "seawater" packets in her bag. "This is what my daughter gave me to travel with," Shriver said.

Metallic Phone Case

  • Seosto Small Crossbody Cell Phone Purse, $14, Amazon

seOSTO Small Crossbody Cell Phone Purse


This is not the exact phone case that Shriver has, but we were able to find a similar option. This one is a fun metallic like hers and features a long, adjustable strap as well as a place to store money and cards.

What's in Sheinelle Jones' bag?

Jones' bag included a leftover Christmas present that she never gave her son — a Pokémon gift card. "I felt like he had enough stuff. So, I didn't give it to him, so I was going to take it back," she explained. Here are a couple of other items she shared:

Just say "No." Resist the urge to take on extra obligations at the office or become the Volunteer Queen at your child's school. You will never, ever regret spending more time with your children.


  • Adidas Originals Swift Run, $45, Champs

adidas Originals Swift Run





Jones pulled out a pair of Adidas sneakers. Hers are from the Swift Run series . The sneakers are sold in kids' sizes, but they do convert into women's sizes. There are other color combinations available as well.

Small Pouch

  • Admirable Idea Pouch, $7, Amazon

Admirable Idea Pouch


Although this isn't the exact pouch Jones was using, we found a similar option that is very affordable. "So this is what I do now," she said. "Marie Kondo taught me to get a bag in a bag to keep things organized in the bag." Makes sense to us!
