Or in my case, what's NOT in my purse? In a frantic search for my keys last night, (Hubby had them) I realized what a massive black hole of "stuff" my purse had turned into. I began taking items out of my purse one a time and setting them on the table so that I could find the keys easier. The further I went, the harder I was laughing. Nicole, close your eyes or you might have a heart attack. Friends, this is hilarious.
"Hi. My name is Ami and I am a purse hoarder."
This is perhaps one of the more humiliating things I could do to myself, but hey, this is my life people. (And just to put it all out there, my car looks the same way!)
And so, I present to you, the contents of my purse. (Which, to my credit has also been my diaper bag for the past 2 years.) I've always combined them so that I wouldn't have to carry two bags. Let's just say I may regret that decision....
If there were a contest for randomness in your purse, I'd totally win! So go ahead and take a look.
In case that was too overwhelming for you, I went ahead and took the liberty of categorizing things for you.
And here they are. A closer look, if you will.
THE GENERAL TRASH CATEGORY
This one is pretty much receipts, trash and more receipts.
THE FOOD & COOKING CATEGORY
Don't act like you all don't have a cooking category in your purses.
Doesn't every well prepared girl carry a spatula in her purse?
THE TOY CATEGORY
Quite a selection here... We've got Woody, a foam firetruck, a plastic baseball from Vail Pride Day (that has been there SINCE VPD...so, a few months now.)
THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS CATEGORY
I get a lot of headaches. What can I say?
THE MAIL CATEGORY
Perhaps I have a lot of mail...and the bill I thought I never got that's late now?
Yeah, there's a good chance it's in there.
THE BEAUTY & HYGIENE CATEGORY
Perhaps my favorite yet.
Don't we all need fake nails, not one but TWO deodorants, 2 nailpolishes (for variety), 2 Tampax (depending on your flow), a child's toothbrush, lip gloss, nail polish, altoids, a barrette, necklace, 2 empty earring cards and a brush. Well prepared is what I say...
My award ribbon for Premier, and a whole boatload of wristbands...
THE ARTS AND CRAFTS CATEGORY
A glue bottle, 3 sharpies, 3 pens
THE CLOTHING CATEGORY
A belt, one child's sock, sunglasses
THE TECHNOLOGY CATEGORY
A camera AND a USB cord.
Wow. And there you have it. I forgot to post a picture of my actual wallet that also lives in the purse, and I have to say, the one thing I'm most surprised NOT to see is a single diaper!! Which stands to reason. I had to borrow 2 from Anabelle the other night...
Anyhoo, this is me. In a bag. Now go ahead and look in your purse and feel free to share your oddest find in a comment. You'll make me feel better!
**OH and you know what else will make me feel better? A little ol click on the Circle of Moms Top 25 Button! My cousin nominated me for the Top 25 Parents of Multiples and so I said, what the heck...So if you like us, give us a click. You just have to find 'The Best things in Life are THREE' (which is currently in the 'Recently added' tab and then click the thumbs up. What would I win? Um, nothing. Just the honor of your click! :)
