OK, so it might be a little embarrassing but really, I think it’s a good thing to take a look and see what’s really hiding inside your purse!

You might find some goodies in there that you thought were long gone!

Or maybe you can purge a few things and make it a little lighter!

I met a business women the other day who arrived in my office with only a wallet cell/card holder! similar to this one.

No purse! She explained to me that she was trying to downsize her purse and found it easier to just carry this small wallet. I was shocked! But I didn’t want to be rude and ask to many questions so I kept quiet! (I know, not like me at all) haha

But it obviously really bothered me…where did she keep her lip gloss? What if she needed a pain reliever? Oh, and she did have to ask me for a pen! (which yes, of course I had one in my purse!) And then there’s the issue of having to carry your keys around…I just don’t think I could do it! I mean, where would I put all my stuff?

So, I thought I would dump my purse out and take a look at what was inside and see if there was anything I could do without. Here is what I found…

Yikes, it’s no wonder I can’t ever find my cell phone in here!

So here is my purse inventory; pen, business cards, advil cold and sinus, random keys, lip gloss, empty bottle of vitamins, anti-nausea wrist bands, migraine meds, hair elastics, hair clip, wallet, change purse, sunglasses, eyeglasses, vasaline lip care, my silver bracelet that I thought I lost! …pill box, receipts, candy wrappers, and paper/notes.

Missing from my purse that are usually in there as well ; Car keys (currently hanging on hook at front door) and Cell phone (used to take this amazing picture)

What can I do without I asked myself, while starring at that giant pile on my living room floor.


Ok, I threw out the garbage and the old receipts. The empty bottle of vitamins is there to remind me to go buy more (as of today, I forgot yet again, and it’s still there!).

I should probably put my bracelet away at home before I actually lose it again!  and those pieces of paper are notes that I write down so I don’t forget things! But that’s it! I use everything else! I swear!!!

I asked myself this, if I had to choose 3 things in my purse to take out and never put back in, what would they be?

This is what I picked;

1. Obvious choice, the bracelet.
2. Hair Clip, it is quite large and if I have elastics already I guess I don’t really need both.
3. Advil Cold and Sinus bottle, since I have that nice little pill box I can just take a few and put them in there instead of the entire bottle.

So there it is ladies, my purse! Any of you have the same situation or worse?
I know you do, I’ve been to those bridal shower parties where they play that awful purse game!
