Look What's In My Purse

I came across a few posts about showing what people have in their purse. Unfortunately, I don't remember where they were or I would share the link with you, but one said you can tell a lot about a person by what they carry in their purse. Now, I use a big bag when I go to work because I bring my lunch every day, the newspaper and a book but also my purse. I keep my bus card and work ID card in the pocket on the side of my big bag for easy access. I numbered the items in the picture above and will explain why I carry them.

1) That's the purse itself. It contains more junk. My Sunday purse has completely different contents in it, but that I'll save for a separate post and only if you really want to know. If you'd like to know what I carry on Sundays in Spotty, include it in a comment on here.

2) This is my cell phone instruction booklet. I put it in to read when I first got the cell phone to learn all about it and just never removed it.

3) Advil for headaches. I don't get headaches very often, but now and then I do and Advil works very good for me. I can't take Aspirin because of interaction with my other meds.

4) Our checkbook. I keep the bills to be paid in there too. It's a small space so that way I pay them quickly.

5) My list of the books I sell directly to people so I can keep track to send in the State sales tax. Another thing to fuss with! I only have two on hand at the moment, one is mine and the other is to send to someone who requests it through www.paperbackswap.com. (It's available on amazon.com and bn.com.)

6) "My Funny Dad, Harry" bookmark which tells a little about the book on the back with the Outskirts Press website and on the front is the picture that is on the cover of the book. I have a bunch of these that I give to people.

7) Bag of Halls cough drops. Even though I don't currently have a cold or cough, I carry them in my purse to give to others on the bus who start coughing.

8) NIV New Testament with salvation verses marked in red to be ready to share with someone should the opportunity arise.

9) A pen that I've used to complete a complaint card on the bus or to have in case someone needs to borrow one.

10) Stamps for mailing personal letters or bills.

11) Tracts that I carry for the same reason as mentioned above for item 8. If I give money to the beggars downtown, which I will on occasion, I'll give them a tract with it.

12) Small change purse that I keep a little money in just in case I need it or want to go to lunch or participate in the football pool at work as well as my bus tickets for the month.

My ID and credit cards I keep in my pocket in case you are wondering. I love pockets! So there you have it. How many things do we match on? What strange things reside in your purse?

Okay, so what would you do if you didn't have a purse?

My purse always has some kind of food and digestive enzymes in it (i'm hypoglycemic and have digestive issues so these are always the most important things in my purse), plus a little colored pencil+notebook set, my wallet, my phone, a few pens, my keys, burt's bees lip balm, and the random detritus i collect throughout the day.

I always carry my camera in my purse cause you never know when a blog photo opportunity might come up!

Oh, I don't even want to look! Uh, I already know I have dental floss and rubber fingers in there, so I'm sure whatever else I find can't be any stranger. :)

In my case, I have more than what you got. I always say that I have my entire bathroom and medicine cabinet combine in my purse because I have different stuff for travel purposes like toothbrush, liquid soap, hand lotion, etc and first aid kit. I cannot leave my house without a purse because I feel naked without it. Strange but true.
