I’m practically a boy scout.

esprit-purse

Many moons ago, my BFF Jess and I went to our local amusement park, King’s Island, about every other day. They had a fake game show that we were dying to win, and one of the standard contests was to see who could come up with some random item in their purse. We’d stuff our little Esprit bags with a pen, a hair clip, some lip gloss, and hope for the best.

These days?

I could win that contest in a heartbeat.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… the contents of my purse.

This first one’s not so bad…

My wallet, planner, vitamins, three prescription bottles (only one was empty!) and some black licorice (what? You don't carry black licorice around?).

My wallet, planner, vitamins, three prescription bottles (only one was empty!) and some black licorice (what? You don’t carry black licorice around?).

But it’s downhill from there.

A book, another wallet, three (empty) packs of gum, a CD, a Flip camcorder that I forgot I owned, moisturizer, and nail polish.

Here’s the serious randomness.

A family picture from 5 years ago, two iPhone cords, earbuds, some other random cord, a Fitbit that doesn't work, two mis-matched socks (??), a bag of crumbled up cookies, and an icing tip. Because you never know when you're going to have a cupcake decorating emergency.

And finally – the crap.

Pens, gum wrappers, grocery lists, receipts, a crumpled up napkin, and who knows what else.

It’s no wonder I can never find my damn car keys.

What’s in YOUR purse??

  1. I totally had that espirit purse – loved it. And I would be scared to share what is rattling around in the bottom of my purse these days. Last time I cleaned it out, i found 2 pairs of underwear (not mine – children size and clean, I swear).

  2. This is why I wish men could legitimately care Man Bags. Not that my youngest is out of diapers, I miss having a bag!

  3. Oh. My. GOSH! I just HOWLED with laughter and scared Jonah. Cousin, which purse are we talking about? I think you would need at least a kitchen tall Hefty bag to hold all that! That’s hysterical! IT makes me want to go see what scary-ness is in mine.

  4. I have socks in my purse intentionally. You never know when you are going to happen across a playland and need socks! I also carry extras in my car. Yeah, I know. I’m weird.

  5. Girl, you’ve inspired me to do the same with my purse contents. I have the most RANDOM things in there!! No socks–but I do have a flashlight with me at all times.

  6. Cigs, condoms, and an old bag of weed.

  7. I love Gina! Mine would always have a stethescope, bc I obviously use that thing at Food Lion.

  8. I carried a “briefcase” for decades, I really miss it. UP

  9. I totally forgot about Espirit!! I loved those purses.
    Emily, I have to know how big your purse is??!!! That is a lot of stuff!
    My contents: wallet, Chapstick, lipstick, lipgloss, nail file, tide pen, sanitizer, lotion, starburst, tic tacs, fruit snacks, wipes, coupon organizer.

  10. And yet another reason I love Gina!!! I now know at least I’m not alone in the can’t find my keys because of all the crap I have in my purse. I figure it’s a good workout, due to the weight of said crap, so it’s ok…right?!
