  1. The purse: the brand is Fossil. It was recommended to me by my good friend Amazon.com and I sent a link to my mom who bought it for my birthday. When it arrived, I didn’t love it. But once it was stuffed with my personal items and bulked up, I began to appreciate it as an every day bag that goes with any outfit. I still miss my Orla Kiely that got robbed out of my parked car, but I am trying to move on.
  2. The messy truth: what was inside. Yes, I live a productive life this way. Hard to believe.
  3. Sorted out items, coins and bills inserted into wallet, crumbs thrown into trash, crumpled shopping lists discarded.

Here’s what you’re looking at:
  • A pair of argyle socks. I get cold in the movies and on date night, I often wish I were wearing socks once we are seated inside a theater.
  • Keys to my house and Honda.
  • Wet Ones
  • Gift cards to McDonalds. Although I’m not a customer, these were given out at Mom 2.0 and I saved them to give to homeless people. I’ve only given out one so far because I forgot about them.
  • Blackberry with pink OtterBox case.
  • Homemade tissue cozy with tissues inside.
  • Business cards
  • Wallet from Target
  • Small rubber toys called Squinkles to entertain children in restaurants.
  • Stash of barrettes and rubber bands for girl child.
  • Clean well wipes
  • BART card (public transit in the Bay Area)
  • Makeup-y things. I never ever apply eye-shadow outside the house, but I just bought this the other day and tossed it in my purse to avoid using a shopping bag.
  • Pens
  • Cleanwell hand sanitizer spray
  • Earbuds with holder. Yes, you iPhone snobs, you can listen to Pandora on Blackberries, too!
  • Un-filed receipts. As a self-employed person with no training in bookkeeping, I struggle with staying on top of my income and expense documentation.
