In the not so distant past, my blog friend Cynthia wrote about what she keeps in her purse. I admit, I love seeing what people carry around with them. I love to see what things people deem so important that they risk throwing out their back just so they can lug something around. So here’s a little peak into my purse…
First off- I love a nice purse/pocketbook/whatever you want to call it. I don’t have many, but what I own, i love. My favorite is a little Longchamp bag I picked up in Paris about 25 years ago. I also have a Michael Kors that I love. Sidenote- I almost never brand name you- unless talking about purses. There’s just something about a mid priced bag….
Secondly: I clean out my purse almost every night. I rarely have odd things in my bag. I rarely have errant scraps of trash. Now, before you go blaming my obsessive personality, it really is a matter of practicality. I change bags on a daily basis, depending on what I’m doing that day. Errands require a cross body bag that is lightweight. A day spent taking pictures requires a different cross body bag. An indoor, afternoon excursion is an excuse for a small handheld purse. A train ride requires a larger handheld purse. I think you get the idea…
But anyway. What is always in my purse?
- card case/key ring
What is usually in my purse:
- lip balm
- hand cream
- lancome undereye roller
- extra key ring with mailbox key and gym id
- small notebook
- water bottle
- plastic bag (dog)
And there you go. So, to play my new favorite game, what can you learn about me by the contents of my purse? Are the things we carry indicative to our inner workings, or is it all just practical?
