So what's in your purse?

My friend shannon challenged me to do this. I'm sure it's meant to be revealing about your personality, but here goes anyway! What is in my purse...

First, I switch between this black "Prada"-esque bag that I won during the raffle at an Armed Forces Spouse Club luncheon last year and an earth-toned striped "Kate Spade"-esque bag that is not quite as tall. And sometimes not everything makes the shuffle! Anyway, when I inventoried the contents this morning (Friday), I realized not everything was present to be accounted for. So I've put in ( ) the items that can often be found in my bag that were mysteriously missing this morning.

Compartment 1:

  • 1 small bottle of ReNu rewetting drops
  • 1 Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Blushing Nude [I don't even know why that is in there since I rarely wear lipstick anyway. It probably got left behind from last Sunday!]
  • Thursday's (yesterday's) "to do" list
  • Tuesday's "to do" list [don't ask about Wednesday -- I don't know]
  • 1 receipt proving I paid the cable bill for both Sept. and Oct. (it saves me a trip next month)
  • 1 size 4 Huggies diaper
  • (travel-size container of Huggies wipes)
  • (sippy cup)
  • (bottled water)

Surprisingly, there was nothing in the zippered middle compartment.
Compartment 2:

  • wallet
  • checkbook
  • pen
  • (cell phone)
  • (sunglasses)

I think this just proves that I'm nowhere near as high-maintenance as my husband sometimes thinks I am.

So, what's in your purse?

(I'm tagging Amy of Savage Stories, as a working mother of twins, she's got to have way more interesting stuff in her bag than I do!)

So neat and organized. I aspire to be you.

I don't know if it's neat and organized or just plain boring! Besides, you caught me on a good day!

Of course you are so organized! I would expect nothing less.

I have the "just in case" bag, where more is always more. Just a few items:

Eliza's birth certificate (was needed for swim team and is still there)

4 tickets to Disney on Ice for this Saturday ("comp"ed, of course)

Ball point pens in three different colors (purple, green, and blue) - they keep Quinn occupied and colorful.

2 plumping lip glosses
a tube of aquaphor
reminder for orthodontic visit for Eliza

sample pack of Hefty Handy Sacks

a fork (I bring lunch to work and am often without silverare)
and a surprisingly organized wallet/checkbook
My kids are so old :( - no sippy cups !!!
