Check it out!
She had not cleaned out her purse since the fall.
Since I can't remember the last time I cleaned out my purse, I thought I would document that for you all.
I love this purse!
It's big enough for everything like books and even my laptop--like my very own Mary Poppins bag.
Even the guy working at Delia's at the mall complimented it.
Which FREAKED OUT the girls.
|It looks a little stuffed, doesn't it?|
Here we go…
**Of course there is a "special zipper pocket" that I did not empty
because Monte reads my blog and gets the hives easily
when topics become "too feminine".
If you know what I mean.**
Let's break this down:
•Of course there is my wallet and checkbook inside.
No surprise there.
Wait. I found a second checkbook.
That probably has been a bit confusing for our bank.
•Lipsticks and lip balm.
Which is funny since I RARELY wear lipstick.
(my grandmother would be so appalled)
But the lip balm?
Check this out:
|Both lip balms are empty.|
Good to know!
I have 4 and somehow can never seem to find any of them when I need them.
•Sudafed (one loose) and 3 packs of tissues.
|It's been a l-o-n-g winter.|
•2 hand lotions.
And I just threw one away earlier in the week.
•2 pony tail holders.
I just told McDaniel Monday night at Ellie's basketball game that I didn't have one.
Granted I didn't even look
because I subconsciously must've known
the HOT MESS my purse was in.
McDaniel somehow "lost" the pony tail holder that was on her braid when we walked into the gym. She had braided her hair wet and once the pony tail holder disappeared her hair kept getting bigger and bigger by the second.
Good thing we were in the top row of the bleachers.
We eventually found the pony tail holder on the ground across the aisle.
It had "shot off" her hair somehow without any one of us noticing.
She was too embarrassed to pick it up since it was right underneath a women's foot.
So we made Monte do it at half time.
He deserves a medal.
|These could've saved the day Monday|
night. If I had just bothered to look.
Ever since I jacked up my jaw this summer, I have stopped chewing gum.
It used to hurt my stomach anyway--
all the fake sugar in the gum.
I love these Pep 'O Mints by Lifesavers because there are no fake sweeteners in them.
•The downside of these mints? The wrappers!
|Why is my purse a trash can?|
•Business cards for our party planning business.
In a plastic ziploc bag.
Crazy classy and professional.
•Receipts. Receipts. Receipts.
And there are more stuffed into my wallet that I didn't even touch.
There is a birthday card for Monte,
a note from McDaniel to get her the Insurgent book,
a catalog of the services at the Aveda salon,
an invitation to a fundraising event,
a One Direction Valentine card to Ellie,
a project idea from Joan Fabrics
and a monthly budget that Monte hand wrote out on the back of an
expired coupon while we were eating lunch after church.
There are coupons,
2 programs from the high school girls basketball banquet we went to Sunday night,
2 basketball rosters from the season
(which has been over since February),
a ticket to the middle school production of Annie
(which was in October),
a thank you card
and the envelopes from Monte that once held cash for my birthday shoe challenge
(which was in November).
Here is the bag of trash I threw away from my purse:
|It was heavy!|
My take away from cleaning out my purse:
•I need more lip balm.
•I definitely need more mints.
(But wrappers go into the trash, not my purse!)
•I found a receipt I needed to submit for an event we just planned.
(Crazy classy and professional strikes again.)
•My purse is not a scrapbook.
•I may not be "plane travel ready" with those scissors in my bag.
•I don't even have 2 dimes to rub together.
Clean out your purses and tell me what you find!
