what's in my handbag

I have a confession: I have a tendency to hoard things in my purse.

Seriously, I typically buy bigger purses because they hold all the things. I can't even tell you how many times I have thought "I know it's in here somewhere" while I fish through a seemingly bottomless bag searching for something I dropped into the black hole that is my purse.

For this reason I've done really well at those 'what's in my purse' bridal shower games. You know the ones I mean: you get a checklist and then points for all the random crap in your handbag. Ya, I've been known to have some of the more obscure, higher point items (though finding them usually requires a dumping of the entire contents which has led to some awkward moments and challenging cleanups). Oh, you need a bandaid? Here ya go. Some feminine hygiene products? I've got your back sister. Tweezers? I KNEW someone might need these. You get the idea.

Throw some kids in the mix and my purse became a whole other entity. Beauty products got replaced with kids snacks, toys and spare diapers. Not to mention snot-suckers (if you don't know what that is and have a child under 2, we need to talk) and diaper cream.

Well friends, I am happy to share the contents of my bag which required no editing... okay, that's a lie, I took out the hygiene products because, well, no one wants to see that (although, now that I've just written about it I probably should have just left them in the pic - meh).

the contents of my purse
Glasses for sun and not
lip stuff
grocery receipt (my last outing)
furniture receipt
kid snacks
mom snacks (apple)
kleenex (just in case)

I will be honest in saying the ONLY reason the contents of my bag is as condensed as it is (and to many it's likely not condensed at all) is because I recently bought two new bags and have been switching back and forth nearly daily which requires me to purge all the things. The love I have for both bags doesn't allow me to turn them into chasms of the unknown. It's a win-win.
