Ok Ladies (or gents), purse (man bag, wallet or tote) check. What are you carrying?

Every so often I get curious as to what is in everyone else's purses, let's see who has the most interesting item.

I'm carrying a turquoise Coach, pebbled leather handbag.

In it I have:

1 pack of gum, 2 small bottles of eyedrops, 1 small bottle of hand sanitizer,1 pack of cold medicine, 1 mechanical pencil, 1 pen, car/house keys, checkbook, mirror, hairbrush, asthma inhaler, combination lock (for locker at 2nd job),1 mini-jar of Vaseline, 2 travel-size bottles of hand lotion, pair of scissors, Donney & Bourke change purse, Coach wallet, make-up bag (5 MAC lip pencils, eyeshadow, 2 eyeliners, pressed powder, 3 MAC lipglasses, jar of Blistex, mascara), CVS pharmacy sales booklet, 1 tampon, a plastic fork, cell phone and a sheet of paper.

Wow, I didn't realize how much I tote around until I listed it!

No ManPurse here. I hate carrying things with me so the closest thing to any kind of bag is my Work Backpack. In it:

A notebook bag for binders that has various things like eyedrops, toothbrush and paste and some other personal items.

An Oscar Wilde book of stories that doubles as a place to keep loose paperwork.

An umbrella I got from Sharper Image that's compact and good for not only keeping rain off but the sun as well.

My Nikon Digital camera. Because you never know when some crazy event will happen so I keep it in there just in case.

I think I'm winning "most amount of junk in a purse". AND I have a tote bag here with four times more junk.

Ladies, are you carrying small purses?

I'm shocked at the amount of stuff you guys can get in a wallet.

When I need to carry around all my usual stuff I use a small REI shoulder bag that they don't make anymore, with lots of little internal pockets to keep stuff organized and in place. Up until a few years ago I would often carrry a backpack, so I still have problems using the "p" word.

1) you need 2 more lipglasses to make it even with lip pensils

So what'cha trying to say, I was name dropping?

No, the eyeshadow is so old that the name has worn off!

But, check this out. More telling is there was no money mentioned with my contents. I've got make-up but no money, so having and listing MAC isn't a commentary on anything but poor spending habits!

Not to mention the fact that I could have did head shots for a modeling agency but didn't put a stitch of makeup on today. What's up with that?

It's kind of like checking out what's in another person's basket at the market. You just see what brand's you have in common, or see what brand's you don't (which usually give me an idea to try something new).

I've never seen this kind of bag before, it's cute.

Off to website to see how I can spend money on another bag I don't need.

Oh my goodness, these bags are too adorable. See this is what I'm talking about..I never heard of these. Gotta get one.
