If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm a bit obsessed. I get onto something and won't let it go. On the other hand, I'm lazy. Like not cleaning the purse out until it is jammed full and there is simply no more room for anything!
We went to the movies (Rogue One) on Christmas Day. While we did have dinner at the theater in the restaurant (VIP Lounge which was our ONLY splurge during Christmas - no exchanging of gifts), I still managed to buy a bag of Twizzlers when the girl came around once we were seated. Yes - I NEED a bag of Twizzlers which I promptly crammed into my purse and well - that was the last straw. The purse was full and I had no choice but to empty it the next day.
So - what do you have in your purse????
|The purse is bursting!|
There is the emergency food stash. OK - so it's candy and chocolate, but still - that's for emergencies!
|Emergency food supplies|
|Ooops - more chocolate, some mail, and some gift cards|
|Am empty candy wrapper, a shopping list, and an expired parking permit|
|A wallet filled with receipts and other junk|
|Receipts shoved in the bottom|
|A fabric postcard, a notebook and a piece of paper with a phone number on it|
|Reusable bag and hand cream|
|Jewelry - note there is only ONE ear ring and yes - there is a bracelet in the Pandora bag|
|Writing instruments - OH and a fork!!!|
|A loose dime, a key (to the house????), an empty plastic bag and the bag from Murphy's dog tag|
|An elastic band and the missing ear ring|
|In the pocket, I found a wad of cash and my car insurance and registration|
|TWO copies of expired insurance in the folder (plus the current one)|
|Nail file, MORE drugs, lip balm (all contained in that little black bag)|
|A pack of sewing machine needles - who knew!|
|Expired lotto tickets (from the wallet)|
|More stuff from the wallet - more cash, boarding pass from November, etc.|
I removed all the stuff that didn't need to be in the purse. I still have to deal with some of it, but lots went in the garbage or recycling or got put where it is supposed to hang out.
|Purse looks pretty decent now|
Remember that I weighed the purse when it was full of all that stuff???? Well let's weight it again.
1.53 KG. I think it was 2.75 KG last time. Yikes!!!!
The trick will be to clean it on a regular basis!!!!
On that note, I'm out of here!!!!
