Hmmmm....let's see: Wallet (a big fat one - LOL), cheater reader glasses, two bottles of meds, my work ID badge, pen, lip stuff, nose spray, hand lotion (small tube), keys, hair scrunchy, old check book registers in the side pocket, cell phone, cell phone headset, loose change on bottom, lighter(s), some gift cards in another side pocket. I think that's it.

What an interesting question. I don't think I want to know what is in my purse but I guess I will take a look.

There is.....my passport(purse with ID was stolen!), a lil notepad, 3 pens, 4 pencils, unfilled old perscription write up, trash, coupons, grocery store reciepts, bank reciepts, check book, birth certificate(for some reason, not a good idea), lipstick, mine and baby's insurance cards, debit card(have no walet, was in purse that was stolen! Good thing birth certificate was not in there, taking it out now), food mvp card, chapstick, looks like about $7 in change, an eraser, teething drops for baby, Q-tips, eye drops, a map of the college, lip mask & lip balm, hair ties, electric bill ; a much smaller purse containing tampons, business card, old appt. card, bandaids, another pen, and lotion. Oh, and napkins.

[deleted account]

My cards (EBT, license, credit card, Costco membership card, Costco cash card.. currently empty.. for gas), girls id cards, a few random business cards, sometimes my phone (when it isn't on my desk or in my pocket), my inhaler, keys, allergy pills that I've never taken, a pen. Those are my normal items. There isn't really room for anything else.

cell phone wallet - doesn't hold my cellphone anymore, holds creditcards, debit cards, receipts, coupons, loose change

burts bees lip balm

nail file

a gazillion receipts.

two hair clips

one scrunchie

5 safety pins, you will probably need 2 at some point but if you need 3, then you really probably 5

tampons

pantyliners

two roll on scented oils - one smells like the OLD Georges Marciano GUESS? and the other like Obsession, I buy them at Hayward Enterprises, online.

It is a very tiny little purse, but I've managed to cram a great deal in it.

But then I carry my "lunchbox" and my briefcase to work daily. My lunchbox has my make up bag in it, rice krispie treats, oatmeal cream pies, various candies, loose paperwork, a couple of bottles of water, my reusuable "paper" coffee cup and sometimes, actually,my lunch.

I'm gonna garb my bag and look, so here is what I have in my handbag:

Purse with money in it (I have to say it is my birthday money otherwise that baby is empty apart from a few pennies)

hand sanitiser
calpol sachet and spoon
mints
lollipop (given to Ethan in a chippy on holiday)

teething powder
themometer

some recipe cards from the supermarket
some sweets left over from holiday last week...I'm gonna eat them now

Oh and when I do go out my phone and if I'm meeting my girlies my diary goes in there too.

Wow looking at this I do have a load of crap in there, I feel better now I was feeling a little inferior to you guys with your super lists :-)

[deleted account]

Wallet, chap stick, several Matchbox cars, a pen, old reciepts, grocery lists that have already been shopped, always have 2 Dum Dum lolly pops to bribe my kid into good behavior in public (just in case, whatever works lol), nail file, pennies on the bottom mixed in with a bunch of lint and that's about all I can think of. I hate purses. Never even used to carry one until I had my son. I was an "ID & debit card in the back pocket" girl before my son lol

[deleted account]

I have:

Wallet

Keys

Phone

Sunglasses

MP3 Player and ear buds

Camera

Reusable shopping bag (It scrunches into a tiny ball)

Notepad & pen (for lists, I make a lot of lists)

Lip Gloss and Face Powder & brush

Mini 1st Aid kit

Knife and a small can of Mace (forgot about those, keep them in the side pocket for easy reach, but can't remember even being in a situation where I *might* need them since my son was born 6 yrs ago....how life changes!)



Sometimes, If I have a long day out, I use a bigger bag and toss a book, my sketchbook, or papers from school I need to read over or sign in there.

Hehehe.. The age old saying is true, I guess.. You can tell a lot about a woman by what's in her purse.

What about me?? Well.. I think it's safe to say I'm not only a product junkie.. But a friend once gave me the nickname 'Portable Drug Store'. You just never know what you're going to need.

Most of the time I don't even use a purse - just carry my wallet. If I do use a purse it's mostly because I need a diaper bag so I'll throw in some dipes and wipes and that's about it. I'm not very exciting LOL!

Hand sanitizer. Chapstick. Loose change. drivers license. a TON of pens, pencils, crayons, highlighters, and markers (It's mostly used for school stuff). Flashcards. miniature palm reading book. Several varieties of Gum. 2 Clif Bars. Mini bottle of water. Cigarettes, a few lighters. Glue stick. clunky graphing calculator. my blue sticker covered binder is wedged in it at the moment. In about 30 minutes my 40 pound anatomy book will also be shoved in there, a snug fit, but it works.

Still use a diaper bag, though she's potty trained.

about 5 pair of toddler Elmo underwear
wipes
bloomers that got peed on and wrapped in paper towels (gross, just put it in the hamper)
a change of pants and socks (learned the hard way that during an accident socks will often get soaked), a plastic bag
my wallet
keys
coupon box
shopping list
some jewelry (I have a small jewelry business, I should get that outa there)
jewelry catalog
jewelry receipts
grocery store receipt
loose cash
sippy cup that needs to be washed
hand sanitizer
Kleenex
a hairbow
barbie doll
and I think that's it.

My cell phone is typically in there, but right now it's MIA. It's probably dead. When I "lose" it I purposefully hold off a few days before searching for it. It rings too much, and I like the break from it!
