So I Finally Cleaned Out My Purse…

what's in your purse, I love my purse, purses, cole haan

This is my black Cole Haan shopper tote. I bought this on eBay for $42.85  It was my 15,000 feedback purse.  Before I cleaned it out, it weighed 9lbs 6 ounces.  Here's what was in it.

Here's a view from the inside top.  See that pink planner behind it?  It was in there too.

Contents dumped on the table.

  • planner
  • wallet
  • mismatched Old Navy gloves
  • checkbook that was out of place
  • trash
  • gum, mints
  • reading glasses
  • sunglasses
  • lip gloss
  • change
  • Splenda packages
  • a couple of pens
  • lots of receipts

Here's all the trash I took out of it.  (yes that's a laundry basket with trash in it)

Some of the more stranger things in my purse…

  • A guest check that was really a receipt from an estate sale I went to.
  • Some Kohl's Cash that I never used. (Fail)
  • My birthday card from my mother and father in law.. (my birthday is in July)
  • Grocery list (one of three or four)
  • An autograph sticker by the band "The Museum"
  • an old water bill.
  • 2 McDonald's Monopoly stickers
  • Ottawa University game schedule

My Sweet #6's footprints from the day he was born.  The hospital did this and it hung on the wall in the NICU until he left to go home with us.  It was the last thing I took down in his room at the hospital.

panda express, fortune cookie

One of 5 fortune cookie fortunes I found.  This one was from Panda Express. I try and try to be the FourSquare Mayor of that place… and I just can't get the job done. :/

grocery list, lists from my purse

I'm a list maker.. (but you knew that)  Here are a few of the lists I found in the bottom of my purse.

Gift cards and reward cards. 

Girl Scout Cookie receipts, and 3 Redbox's that need to be returned.  OOOh and my favorite hot pink FLAIR pen.

Door handle from the school room cabinet.  I've had this in my purse since August…



This was the best thing I found in my purse.  Given to me by a person in my youth group.

"I would like to thank you for always being there for me and helping me through the hardships that  (name) gave me.  Also I want to thank you for always bringing me in when I had no where else to go and picking me up when I was down and giving me love when I need (it) most and giving me respect when I didn't deserve it.  Most of all being my close friends and treating me like I was a part of your family.  So I just want to say God Bless You."

You never know what's going to be in my purse.. but that note was the best.
