Various magazines often post lists of what celebrities carry in their purses. It made me wonder how my purse stacks up. Plus it was well past time to clean it out, so I thought I would document the process. I pretty regularly switch between purses, and try to carry a smallish bag, but haven’t switched out from my big purse after my trip to Florida at the end of November. That means it’s starting to fill up with ridiculous things.
Starting out, it’s not looking too crazy. From top to bottom:
- Portable phone charger
- iPhone earbuds
- Giant keychain with way too many things for the small number of keys
- Pen case (for the fancy fountain pens I carry) plus two “regular” pens. Note that the fancy pens aren’t currently in the case and instead are strewn about my office and house
- Two snacks. Because everyone needs snacks.
Still pretty normal purse contents.
- Sunglasses case (with sunglasses inside)
- Reusable bag
- Altoids and weird licorice candies
- Cough drops, which are weird, only because I’m not sure when I last had a cough.
- Business card case
This one’s a bit misleading because I didn’t open up the pouch, which contains all sorts of ridiculousness.
- Pouch with lipstick, mirror, hair bands, spare contacts, medications, and other random tiny things
- Bottle of hotel lotion from a trip I took in May
- Mickey Tsum Tsum lip balm that I bought on a whim (which is now stacked on my desk)
- More chapstick
And now we get into the random stuff
- Passion Planner – I LOVE this thing
- Holiday CD from a coworker
- Massage ball
- Pile of garbage
- Gum, plus loose gum that fell out of the container
- An Action Wipe… in case I sweat and need to wipe down? I’m not sure why this is in my purse. Usually these are in my gym bags.
- You are Beautiful stickers
So that’s the full list of what was in my purse. Most things went back in, save for the trash and the Mickey lip balm. Anything random in your bag? I think next up I’m going to dig through my tri bag, because that thing is a disaster.
