Inside my purse

Kendra at Catholic All Year has a fun link-up called The Big Purse Dump. As soon as I read about it, I grabbed my purse, dumped it on the table, and took some photos. Chris was in the room with me, and he gave me the strangest look. Finally, he asked, "Why are you taking pictures of the junk in your purse?" I answered him honestly, "To write a blog post, duh." He raised an eyebrow, shook his head, and quickly left the room. I love the link-up's not so fine print. Kendra wrote on her blog, The fine print (which I'm keeping big so you can read it) : NO CHEATING. No early tidying. No funny planted stuff. God is watching you. 

Yes, He is! You won't find me cheating or planting funny stuff. Below is a list of everything that was in my purse and nothing that really was not! 

Currently, I am using my brown leather purse. I also have a black leather purse and a red leather purse.   I have switched between them for the last ten years. Crazy, right? Well, they are in decent condition. They may look a bit worn, but they are not falling apart, so I keep on rotating them.

1. Fossil wallet and change purse - A friend gave me this wallet and change purse several years ago. I use them a lot, but not all of the time. Sometimes I switch the red wallet for an old brown wallet.
    Checkbook - I never write checks when I go shopping, but I carry my checkbook just in case.

2. Small cheetah print bag - This bag holds my collapsible hair brush and all of my hair clips and barrettes. I am very concerned about not being able to pull my hair back.

3. Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick, Supermodel, 0.09 Ounce This is my favorite lipstick. It stays on for a long time. The color is Supermodel, and it is a good neutral red/mauve/brown color (the color on amazon looks a little too pink, in my opinion). It is matte (see below).
Blistex Silk & Shine Lip Balm  I do not like dry, matte lips! This Blistex is not my favorite. I prefer Nivea A Kiss of Smoothness, but the store was out of it, so I bought the Blistex.

 Pentel R.S.V.P. Ballpoint Pen, Fine Line, Black Ink, 3 Pack (BK90BP3A)  I love these pens. I always have one in my purse and one with my journal.
Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Lotion, Healing, Aloe, 5.5 oz , (Pack of 3)  This is my favorite lotion. I am happy that I can buy a travel size for my purse at Walmart. The larger sizes are great for my bathrooms at home.

 Energizer AA Lithium Batteries (8-count), Lasts 9 Times Longer  I use these batteries in my Canon Power Shot Camera. I have no idea if these are still good or if they need to be thrown into the trashcan. I am sure they ended up in my purse during the holiday season.
Pictures - I guess it seems old school to carry this wallet sized picture keeper around with me. People seem to keep all of their photos on their phone these days. I keep buying and receiving wallet sized pictures of my boys, my nephews, and my niece, so I am going to continue to carry them with me.

4. Crumpled paper items - A receipt for my Sam's Club purchase last week, one from Food Lion, and a Food Lion coupon for Chex cereal.

5. My prescription sunglasses and a cleaning cloth for the lenses.

I am looking forward to reading about what other women have in their purses. Maybe I will find a few new things to throw into my purse!
