I was reading up on/stalking Lindsey (from the Pleated Poppy) over on Kate's blog today.
I kept thinking two things:
1. She is so dang cute!
2. Her purse is super organized.
Then I thought it would be fun/terrifying to show you what's in my purse.
Here she is:
She weighs about 100 lbs and has multiple huge rips inside, likely from bearing such an enormous amount of crap.
Here are a few things that I consider for use in emergeny situations.
Miscellaneous toys given to Stevie that end up in my purse for ages and a bottle opener juuuust incase.
No, I'm not joking and yes this is all really in my purse.
I have eye issues during the Spring in that they swell up like crazy, so all of that eye stuff seems necessary to me.
Rubber bands for my braces (sexy) and floss for my braces (also sexy).
Tissues, hair brush, lotion, chap stick, breath mint, smell good stuff, and a stain remover pen.
Plethora of meds.
Yes, those are diet pills of a sort and no they don't magically make you lose weight.
They do give you tons of energy in a pinch.
Allergy stuff that I try not to take because I know it just makes the following Spring worse. Plus, the ones in the bottle are expired.
Excedrin bottles that are filled with all kinds of things, none of which are actually Excedrin.
Tums? These aren't mine.
Now I shall wait for my all natural amiga, Ott, to tell me to stop taking this stuff.
And I will tell her I will.
And the rest of it...
A planner that is still in the month of February, an file with coupons, misc. coupons for free or cheap stuff, pay check stubs, a notebook w/ pen, a heavy-a wallet stuffed with receipts I can assure you I will do nothing with, random papers that include, but are not limited to: info for our white water rafting trip next weekend, requests for transcripts, medical paperwork, and more.
And there you have it.
I promise I am organized in other areas of my life that do not include my purse or closets anywhere in my house.
Now go off and feel better about your cleanliness...
