The One with What's In Your Purse

Thursday, April 29, 2010

The contents of one's purse can say a lot about one's self. Here's what's in mine:
My phone. It's glued to my hip.
Sour Patch Watermelons - a new favorite candy.
Bottled water - I always carry a water bottle with me cuz I hate being thirsty.
Goldfish. To snack on. Natch.
An everything bagel from Costco with one bite taken out of it. It wasn't exactly what I was in the mood for apparently.
A print out of all the layouts in the August issue of Scrapbook Trends so I can check them off as I edit the text.
Band-aids. An essential. I tend to cut myself on random objects frequently.
Hand sanitizer - cuz I'm a germ-a-phobe.
Two American Crafts Precision Pens - the best pens in the world.
A garbage bag - in case I feel the urge to vomit.
My wallet.
A Wells Fargo deposit slip. Wish I had direct deposit for all my paychecks... Note to self: this is my last deposit slip - get more next time I go to the bank.
A copy of our car insurance policy. Don't know why I carry it around, but I do.
My Google notebook - to jot down ideas, sketches, lists, anything that comes to mind that I need to remember.
I also carry my camera with me ALWAYS, but I had to use it to take this picture...
All three of my ultrasound pics :)


  1. That's so funny - took photos tonight of what I found in Molly's little purse and thought it would be cool to include it in my next post...might do mine too now!! xx

  2. Think you are starting something here...what a fun page that'd be to scrap! Hmmm, no gum - no kleenex? and where's the trash? :]

  3. I noticed there was no "photo of my husband" in that list... :)

  4. you must scrap this!!! :) And just think... in a few months, things like wipes, bottles, paci's will be in your purse. :)

  5. Great idea Paige... i need to do this... I have a lot more stuff than you do though! I need to minimize! :) Can't wait to hear what you guys are having! Will you find out? And if you do... do you plan to share or wait? :)Hope you are feeling well!

  6. wow, thats pretty good and really clean! I have everything including the kitchen sink in mine! I joke that when I am mother my diaper bag will be a peice of luggage with wheels cuz I am probably going to need something at sometime so I must carry it with my always. I am going to have a bad back when I am older! Maybe I will steal this post idea, because seriously I am known for being marry poppins!

  7. I'm impressed, it's so neat and clean and organzied. Mine's a big mess. Just wait, soon you'll have binkys, wipes, emergency fruit snacks, tissues, and piles of receipts b/c you're in such hurry to get out of places you just shove them in!

  8. better get a photo of your husband!! ;) Loooove the baby sweet! Your purse reminds me of mine, less all the random receipts!! Haha...gotta clean it out! Sour patch? Yes, please. Bright yellow purse? Why yes, thank you! =)

  9. love what you carry around (esp the garbage bag) & that you shared this.

  10. i might have to do this. i loved this post.

  11. i love it. sour patch kids have always been good but they are probably my most consistent pregnancy craving. i also have some in my purse right now. and first trimester i kept plastic bags and goldfish too! and my purse is the only place i trust with every single ultrasound photo i've ever gotten. i feel honored that our purses have so much in common. like keeping a camera in there 24/7...i don't know how anyone ever gets any pictures if they don't have their camera in their purse all the time!
