Purses

This line-up in the church basement before last Sunday's potluck caught my eye. We teach them young--the owner of the little red purse is 5 years old!

My turn to "confess"--"What's in my purse?" Several pens, lip gloss, ibuprofen, bandaid, comb, cell phone (usually), kleenex, extra keys, pocket calendar (that's my "brain" or I wouldn't know where to be when!), church ladies' booklet, a CD (probably could replace that with a thumb drive, or just leave it out), checkbook, emery board, nail clipper/small tool set, mints or hard candy, dental floss, chapstick, billfold (coins, credit cards and cash, plus insurance cards, driver's license, and every store seems to want you to have a "discount card" or a "punch card"), mini-flashlight, misc. coupons, shopping list, . . and sometimes I squeeze in the camera!

I've always liked a purse with a long shoulder strap, and with lots of pockets and compartments, preferably zippered or snapped--so I can keep track of where everything is, supposedly! :-) I remember one white purse with an exceptionally long strap in 5th or 6th grade. Hmm... I probably I wasn't very tall at that age. Do you suppose that's why it was so long?

I feel lost if my purse isn't hanging from my shoulder when I go somewhere.

  1. I always thought I liked lots of pockets and compartments but things tend to get lost and forgotten in those places. Now I have just one "cell phone pocket" inside. I don't have a cell phone so that's where I keep my medical cards and bank receipts.

  4. hi sounds like you could hold a garage sale from the contents,
    and live in the bag afterwards.

  6. You sound very prepared for whatever might come up! I'm impressed with the flashlight and the mini tool set.

    The shoulder straps are generally too long for me. Recently, I had Denis put in a new hole and cut the excess off of my purse strap and it's so much more comfortable.

  7. Love the list of purse contents. That's a cool idea for a blog post! Someday I might have to list mine -but first I think I'll do a little "house cleaning" :)

  8. I haven't had time to go through my purse but a few things I always carry are chapstick and kleenex's and I like an inside zippered compartment for the unmentionable woman products. I'm like you, I usually have my cell phone (although it's usually off) unless I forget to put it in when it's charging. I feel lost when I don't have mine too.

  10. I feel lost without my purse too. Sometimes my husband will ask me why I need to bring it someplace. I just never know what I might need from it.

  11. I'm good at losing my purse or leaving it behind... *sigh* And when I do have it with me it is so full of junk I can't find anything anyways! Pathetic, I know, but so true.
