You can learn a lot about a woman by looking in her purse

I'm obviously having blogging issues lately. Normally I don't do a lot of these things, but for the sake of keeping my blog updated I have caved more than once. Once my crazy February is over, my brain might allow some extra room for great blog ideas.

I'm actually super surprised at how much stuff is in my purse, because I have been trying to be more minimalistic with it and clean it out more often. A few months ago you might have fainted at hearing the contents of my bag. It still seems like quite a lot, though, despite my best efforts. Oh well, I guess that's why we women carry purses and not wallets in the first place.

Anyway, because I know everyone is dying to know, here is a list of what is in my purse right now:

My wallet.
My day planner.
A notebook, usually used for shopping lists and the like.
A checkbook.
The envelope in which I received my payment for adjudicating the music festival last week.
The paper with a breakdown of said payment. I guess we could call it a paystub of sorts.
A Grocery Game printout for Smith's.
Paper from Sophie's Dr. appointment listing her height/weight and other stats.
A receipt from Dillard's for the new formal dress I bought this weekend for the benefit concert I will be singing in March.
A tin of vanilla scented lip gloss.
A tube of lipstick.
A compact mirror.
My cell phone.
A tampon.
A Tide to Go stain stick thing.
A tube of my prescription progesterone cream.
A pill box with my medication in it.
3 pens and a mechanical pencil.

And last but certainly not least...

A package of Kleenex. (But you already knew that, right?)

Now, you tell me what my "purse stuff" says about me.

  1. Oh that's too funny because I just got done reading another friend's blog who had been tagged to say what was in her purse. Now I want to!

  2. It says you are very prepared, and if I ever needed something and you were around, I know you would have it :)

  3. It says I am a mom and prepared for any occassion.

    My purse is full of reciepts that I "plan" on going trough. I don't want to post about because I already know wht that says about me.

  4. It's says "I'm a woman", I agree. And it says you're bringing sexy back, too......I am today, as well, so you must be right??

    I'm totally kidding. That was the title of my last blog post.

  5. I agree that it says you're totally prepared for most situations. Maybe I'll have to go through my purse and see what's in it. . .definately NOT money!

  6. I love this kind of stuff! Isn't amazing what all we have in our 'Mary Poppins' bags?

  7. You're organized.
    If I had to list everything in my purse, it would take up at least three times as much space.

  8. Wow-I think it says you are ready for most any challenge. (except where are the baby wipes?) I have one of those tide to go sticks, but have honestly never used it!(not because I don't spill either)

  9. Ah yes, but what KIND of medication.....

  10. wow, I admire you for the lipstick - I am trying so hard to go back on make-up...
