I seen a quick ad about an upcoming episode of Oprah in which she is asked this very question. It got me thinking about what's in mine! I think the only real surprise is how many tissues I actually have and I never leave the house without grabbing a couple more! Other than that, I have wallet, blistex, pen, sometimes my cell phone, my loyalty cards...I think they multiply in the dark! and a few supplies for those not so nice surprises. I also have an assortment of coins which I am quite willing to use with my purchases. Don't you just love stumping the clerks who don't know what to do with those extra pennies!
At the library, while flipping through some ladies magazines that I don't buy, I noticed a reference to the Purseket, a organizer with a bunch of pockets that you fill with your stuff & just drop into your purse to keep everything tidy and in easy reach. Stuff stands on end, taking up less room. I forget how much this 'gotta have' costs but they say you can quickly change purses by lifting the whole thing out and droppping it into the new bag. Not sure about you but I only change bags when I go out at night and/or in the spring/fall. That gives me a couple of good opportunites to purge some of those tissues! You guys...you have things so easy...who cares if your wallet is colour coordinated so long as you have money in it and are willing to spend some of it on us!
