What's in your Purse?

Holly tagged me last week, wondering what I carry around in my purse. Don't mind the fact that this purse is extremely dirty on the outside and needs to be replaced but I just haven't found anything I love love love yet!

So, here's what is in that huge thing:

  • notebook - for logging workouts & nutrition
  • ziplock baggy with post-it notes and pens
  • cell phone
  • camera
  • camera battery charger
  • coffee giftcard
  • coupons
  • little pink address book
  • Nuun
  • Ibuprofen
  • hand sanitizer
  • headband
  • 2 ponytails
  • floss
  • iPod
  • NCAA Tournament pin (from Dad)
  • 2 granola bars
  • ID/Lanyard from work
  • USB flash drive
  • gym pad lock
  • chlorine-away packets
  • mints
  • two kleenex packets
  • toiletries
  • tanning goggles
  • wallet

Wow, there's a lot of crap in there ... everything but the kitchen sink. :)

Feel free to play along. What do you carry in your purse? Or for the men - what do you carry in your European Shoulder Bag, if you have one?

I have my camera and charger on me at all times too. ha!

Funny I just found a doll sippy cup in my purse and my lipstick had a bite out of it. I am guessing my daughter was playing around.

ha, the would might end if everyone knew what was in my purse. it's kinda scary!

I rarely carry a purse right now...I'm back in school, so usually its my backpack that accompanies me. But I always have an energy bar in it...just in case.

You carry a lot of stuff! Maybe sometime I'll dump mine out and see what's in there. But I don't have that much with me most of the time, I try to travel light. :-)

I'll play along ... what fun!

I totally need a new purse too but I just cant find any good ones and I dont want to spend like a ton of money on it cause it will just get dirty!

Holy smokes - are you sure the kitchen sink isn't hiding somewhere in that thing!

I Run for Fun said...

LOL! I have nowhere near what you have in there. But I do feel lost without my purse. Wonder how men can walk around carefree with just their wallets.

Kristen said...

Fun!! I think I just cleaned out my purse so there is probably nothing fun in there right now but I have been known to find a couple Gu hanging out at the bottom!

AM! said...

that's a lot o stuff in your purse!

and i choose to remain ignorant and think my purse has only my keys, money and id...yah right!

Wow you got a lot of things in that bag! I'm kind of freakishly organized and neat so the only things that are in my bag are what I need at the particular time. Right now, I'm in between classes so it's just notebooks, pens, planner, ID card and cellphone.

I keep a ton of stuff in my purse! Some of it is for me and some is for my boys. Let's see, I have a sunscreen stick, chapstick, Ibuprofen, bandaids, wallet, small calendar, pens, pony tails, lotion, hand sanitizer, I said, it's a lot of stuff!

Julie said...

Holy crap!! You carry a ton of things in your purs:) I thought that I was bad. You are prepared for everything!! I will play along and use this as a topic for one of my next posts:)

Carolina John said...

No purse, but credit cards, pictures, a little bit of $$, and lint in my wallet. Oh, and the all important spare key for my car.

Wow! I played this game last year and then quickly threw out a bunch of stuff! LOL

Gotta Run..... said...

Your list is HUGE. I carry very little. Less is more theroy :)

Now I still beleive my step-mom has you beat. I think she has her kitchen sink in her purse :)

Holly said...

You have everything you could possibly need in that purse! :) It's a good list, though - important stuff in there. Thanks for playing!

Lindsay said...

I love it!! That is what a purse is for! My husband always teases me that I carry everything but the kitchen sink!

Mike H. said...

That's a pretty big inventory! ;)

I stay out of Dee Dee's purse. There's a Hazardous Materials sign on it...

Classic! My wife carries only a fanny pack in recent years. She makes up for it by storing ALL her junk the van, so it's still at hand. No wimpy single water bottle, she carries a case of it! And, at least 2 boxes of Kleenex, 3 books to read, 2 first aid kits, a suduko book, etc., etc. :P
