Yesterday while I was looking for my chapstick in my purse I realized that I really need to clean out my purse. I just throw everything in there and then forget about it. (Remember my other post about my purse?) Why do I think it is really time to clean out my purse, well because of some of the things I found during my latest purse excavation.
So here are some items I have in my purse: A large roll of clear packing tape with the orange tape cutter attachment (who doesn’t), a bar of homemade lavender soap, 2 large bottles of pills (one cranberry the other pain), a wallet the size of a normal person's purse, gloves, a smaller empty wallet, 3 bottles of nail polish, probably about $13+ worth of change, an empty sandwich sized ziplock bag, a nail file and nail buffer, spare buttons, travel bottle of mouth wash, 2 travel bottles of hand sanitizer, rubber bands, mardi-gras beads, a ring in a box (not to be confused with something else in a box – think SNL), 10 pens, a nearly empty roll of toilet paper, bills, a book (I hardly even read!) and tons of random pieces of paper and post-it notes.
My bag weighs probably 8 pounds. That is just ridiculous, but I would like to say that I have a very logical (to me) explanation of why everything is in there.
I think this weekend I will be doing a full cleaning of my bag. And I also think I need to down size my bag from overnight/carry-on size to tote size. Of course, who am I kidding...a couple weeks after I do this it will be right back to what it is now. I have a problem.
So is there anything random or in excess of in your purse at the moment?
