This is Ridiculous but Absolutely True

That Chick commemorated her 200th post on Friday by showing us the contents of her adorable purse. I am so jealous of her, it is too damn cute. Not thinking of the true embarrassment I would cause myself, I commented that I would do the same.

So here goes (Don't judge me, OK? I carry way too much junk!)...

My purse (suitcase) ...
I know what you're thinking (not cute at all)




Inside the purse (behind the zippered compartment in the middle)...



calendar/planner thingy, checkbook, savings register, Race for the Cure registration form (had just signed up), my Address Book , a bunch of crap (coupons to stores, receipts, etc) banded together and The South Beach Diet Good Eats, Good Carbs Guide !

Inside the purse (in front of the zippered compartment in the middle) ...



wallet (doesn't show up too well in the picture but it is one of the big ones), cell phone (of the antique variety - no camera, doesn't flip, no fancy ring tones - but it works!), keys, cigarettes and lighter (I know, I know - BAD FOR YOU), glasses ( eyesight is one of the first things to go when you get old), fold-up brush, calculator, remote for security system and pens (you haven't seen them all yet!)

Inside the zippered compartment ...



hair clips, elastic ponytail holder, hand cream, emory boards (what?? I have acrylic nails), Blistex and Lip Gloss.

BEWARE - I'm not done yet!!

Pockets and zippered compartment on the front of the purse ...



work badges (unclassified ones - can't show you the other ones or I'd have to kill you!), matches, empty mint wrapper (Baby Girl) from a baby shower a week ago, grocery store card (have never even been to that store!) plastic baggy with a broken tooth inside (What am I carrying that around for?), note on a scrap of paper, glasses wipes and MORE FREAKIN' PENS.

Zippered fold out compartment on the back of the purse ...



travel scissors ( they have come in handy many times), CHICKEN POOP (compliments of SJ), binder clip, allergy tablets, bug repellant/sunscreen wipes, moist towelettes (compliments of some resturaunt [God knows where] - and they are probably no longer moist!), South Beach Diet coupons (every penny counts), bandaids, first aid packets and a list of all the movies I own (when you own over 800 and you find a good buy, you need a list to make sure you aren't buying duplicates!)

FINALLY that's all! I need to seriously clean out this suitcase and switch to a much smaller purse. A cute one, at that ...

Is anyone else up to the challenge of spilling the "guts" of their purse? Feel free ... and be easy on me, I am embarrassed enough already.

Note: I didn't cheat and clean it out first - this is exactly how it was when I read That Chick's post. She's one of the best reads around !

WOW I love that bag (purse) and having seen what you carry I no longer worry about mine; my hubby (embee) says I carry everything but the kitchen sink-that is so not true - you have to be prepared don't you!! I may decide to do a post about mine sometime if I'm brave enough.

Wow, you are my sister in purses. Mine - very, spookily similar. No wonder I have back problems. No cigarettes though - I don't smoke

If I'm ever trapped in an elevator I hope it's with you. You have a little bit of everything we'd need to survive until help arrived! : )

That Chick Over There said...

Holy cow that's a lot of stuff in that purse! :)

You and I share a deep and abiding love of PENS.
