what's in your purse

I have a large apt. 9 bag I got at Kohl’s a couple of years ago. Yes, a couple of years ago…I am purse loyal!  I also carry a smaller purse (#8, though that one does get switched out) inside of it. I always take the big bag with me, and the small purse makes running into stores, the library, etc. easier.  Inside I carry…

  • Notebook of lists. I keep this handy when I go to the library, it has the books and locations so I can find what I want quickly.
  • Lip gloss. Revlon Colorburst in Gold Dust. Avon Plump Pout in Nude.
  • Lip stuff. Nivea wins, Chap Stick is handy.
  • Favorite pens. If you ask to borrow a pen, I would probably lie to you and tell you I don’t have one. Sorry.
  • Mentos Gum. The Freshmaker.
  • Lubriderm. The lady at Sam’s Club was handing these out and you can bet I made my husband go get a second one. Favorite lotion ever.
  • Keys. Car, house.
  • Nine & Co. small purse. I hold items 2-7, 9, 10, 15, 16 & 17 in this.
  • Kids Library Cards.
  • Business Cards
  • Camera Bag. Holds my Nikon D40 or my smaller Canon Powershot. It makes my mom happy to see me using the bag since she paid “too much to just throw the camera in your purse.”
  • Book. Changes weekly. This week is The Time Traveler’s Wife.
  • Nikon 55-200.
  • Cheap plastic sunglasses from Target. I lose them…a lot. At $10 a pair I don’t feel guilty.
  • Wallet from Target.
  • Blackberry. I will never give up my BB, from my cold dead hand will you take it from me.
  • Valentines cards from my middle child.
