Ever wondered what a "Bargain Blonde" carries in her purse? Oh, no? Too bad, I'm going to show you anyway. I gave myself only one rule, no pre-cleaning my purse out. Lucky for me, it's in pretty good shape right now. It's definitely seen worse days.
One observation before I continue: I'm pretty sure men are scared of purses. There is sort of an unspoken rule that they are not allowed in there. I don't know what they think they're gonna find in there. But, if you ever ask a man to grab something out of your purse for you, they give you this bewildered look of fear. Then, instead of doing as instructed, they just hand you your entire purse as quickly as possible. Weirdos.
Moving on ....
This is the purse I'm still currently slinging around. First shown here. I call this my "Mary Poppin's bag" because the amount of crap I have in here seems never ending. I am so not one of those girls that can carry a small purse. If I had to guess, this bag weighs a solid 10 pounds.
Now, here's what makes up those 10 lbs:
My lifeline and BFF, my Blackberry Torch. I absolutely love this phone. It's like a BB and iPhone combined. It has a touch screen, but I also still get my BB keyboard. I hate typing on that digital keyboard. No one likes my new heart phone cover, but I do and that's all that matters.
I posted about this in one of my "WILW" posts. It's a file folder for your purse to keep receipts or whatevs organized. The best part is that it was only $1.
Juicy Couture sunglasses from Nordstrom Rack. I used to only buy $12 sunglasses from the sunglasses table in the BP section of Nordstrom. I had a really bad habit or losing or breaking every single pair of glasses I ever owned, so I didn't want to waste the money. When I finally splurged for a designer pair, magically I started to take a lot better care of them. Imagine that.
My Liz Claiborne dis-gust wallet I've had for like 4 years. I loved it at first because I love floral prints, but it's old and dingy now, which is why I say dis-gust. I have my heart set on The Lauren Hobo Clutch, but I don't know if I want to fork over the cash. TBD.
Mini nail file from the Dallas Bridal Show we went to with Courtney a few months ago. I'm never going to a bridal show ever again. All it was was a bunch of vendors lined up harassing you and offering you samples. NO, I DON'T WANT TO TRY YOUR MEATBALLS! Food, flowers, cakes, photo booths, bridesmaid dresses, gowns, etc. Hundreds of vendors just trying to get your attention and to sign-up for their mailing lists. No thanks.
Random jewelry. Sometimes I get annoyed with jewelry I'm wearing so I take it off and throw it in my purse. I always forget about it and it stays in my purse forevs.
Hand sanitizer (aka "han-i-tizer" according to my neph), lotion, drugs, floss and lip gloss. The necessities.
Diet and fitness journal purchased on Amazon. I won't lie to you. It's been a few weeks since I've been tracking my calories. But with only 3 weeks until my friend's Phoenix wedding, it's crunch time. I'm strictly monitoring and tracking my calories and workouts until then. The good news is that my bridesmaid dress is too big, but that doesn't mean I'm in shape. Just means I ordered a fatty size.
Slap bracelet koozie. Yes, they exist. Yes, it is awesome.
Camera/case in Texas Tech colors, duh!
Coach wristlet, Coach coin purse and Coach checkbook holder.
Pen and paper.
My nephew's "bug clipper". Don't know how this ended up in my purse, but we were collecting bugs on Saturday morning and I guess he put it in there. Random.
And lastly, my keys. I only use 2: my apartment key and car key. Your guess is as good as mine for what the other 2 keys go to. Not really sure why I still have them on my key chain.
Now you know what I lug around with me on the daily. I must confess, I did this post because I I have bloggers block and couldn't think of anything else. Hope you enjoyed anyway!
