What's in your purse?

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!

Oops...I'm bad, I forgot about the tiny tape measure I carry. It's an old one Mom used to carry around. Sure comes in handy when you are out and about!

I saw those organizer things. I was thinking they looked pretty good myself.

Yea, the guys get off easy. But then they are always asking us for stuff, like Tylenol, gum, etc.

Ill be trading my purse in for a diaper bag and "mommy purse" big enough to fit a kitchen sink in...I hope not...

I saw a sling style diaper bag online at toys r us and thought that might be the only way Jeff will take out Jonathan on his own and not feel tooo dorky...but I might get a ha ha from Jeff looking dorky...

Those sling diaper bags are everywhere now and they rock! It's the same style as my MEC one and it's comfy, practical and stylish.
I have hardly anything in my purse, wallet, pen, cell phone, change purse and hand sanitizer. Hand-san is a must with the wee ones!
