So What's in Your Purse?

  • Are you one of those women who carry everything you think you'll ever need with you when you leave the house?

  • Is your purse bulging at the seams with things you never use from one month to another, yet when it comes time to change purses, you just transfer everything into the new one?

  • Or are you a minimalist and just carry the bare essentials?

  • I think I fall somewhere in between.

Here's what I emptied out of my purse, everything is essential (I think).

  • Camera
  • Wallet
  • Comb
  • Lip Gloss
  • Gum
  • Cheque books
  • Credit/debit/reward Card holder
  • Car keys
  • Keys to home, Lethbridge house and Arizona house
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Notebook
  • Six pens
  • Old grocery list
  • Bill to mail
  • Mints
  • Motrin in pill box
  • Tissue packet
  • Appointment cards
So how does that compare to yours? I admit that there are one or two things I could get rid of but most of it is essential.

I had the standard with the addition of a size 6 boy shoe -- a left.

Just wondering if you lost/forgot your phone?!! The only extra thing I have is sunglasses in my purse.

Lotion, eye drops, multiple pens, a magazine when I know I will be waiting somewhere, schedule for next week's All State chorus fun, Zach's Mayo Clinic number, and a map of Minneaplois MN!!!!

The latest magazine I toted around this week has Pioneer Woman in it. The map of Minneapolis stays there as it has helped me out of many confusing situtaions. Even assists me in winning the arguement with the Trucker!! haha

The pictures of colorful trees I have on my blog recently are from Wisconsin not Wyoming!!! I havent been to WY in the fall so not sure if the trees they have in town get real pretty or not! The trees in the country in WY struggle with all the wind they have.
On our property in WY we dont even have ONE tree on it!!! We hope to change that of course!

You need more pens.

I'd add 2 diapers, spare gloves for Layla's skating lessons, a sippy cup with water in it from yesterday, nail clippers, a hair brush, my work id tag, wet wipes, and an old lottery ticket I never checked...hmm, maybe I'm rich and don't know it!

Well, I think some of you moms have bigger purses than I do, although I don't think I ever carried one child's shoe around with me. This reminded me of the article JQ wrote for that magazine about my big purse. I'd like to copy it here sometime.

I am currently without a purse; my old one broke and the new one is still in the mail. So I just have a few cards in the pockets of my coat.
