What I Keep In My Purse

Today I'm sharing what's in my purse, for all of you nosy people like myself.  ;)  I'm afraid you might be sadly disappointed though, as I don't have anything wowing to see.



 I will hold onto something for one of my kids, or have a few miscellaneous receipts... but on any given day, this is what you'd find if you dumped out my purse onto the counter. 


I'm a chap-stick wearing girl.  I can't help it, and I'm constantly needing to reapply.  There are a lot of different brands that can be hard on your lips and even addicting, so I've switched over to plain old Vaseline at the beginning of the year.  I think it's helped, and I don't feel the need to reapply nearly as often as I used to.


 I keep a book or my kindle with me wherever I go.  If I'm waiting to meet a friend for lunch, waiting to pick up my kids from practice, sitting in a doctors office... I pull out a book.  I can only scroll through social media so much and then the book comes out.


This is my favorite lotion year round.  It has such a nice light scent.  Some lotions can be so overpowering.  This one isn't which is another reason I love it.


Hand sanitizer is a must.  I use this anytime I gas up the car, help out at the school, get groceries, etc...  I use hand sanitizer until I can get home to wash my hands.  Now this isn't a favorite scent, it was just a random one that I grabbed in town one day when I was out.


This lip gloss from Victoria Secrets is my favorite.  It's cheap, it's not sticky and it looks great.  You can find it in the little bins before the checkout counter.


 I usually try and keep a light snack in my purse for when I'm stuck in town waiting for my kids.  I'll grab a quick protein bar or a small bag of almonds... something light to keep me going.


 Yes, I keep floss in my bag.  A lady once told me that as she got older everything gets stuck in her teeth.  I smiled at the time, because I didn't understand.  Well, it's been a few years and I now understand.  I swear everything that can, will get lodged between my front teeth... and there's nothing like trying to pick food out of your teeth when you're stuck in town for the day.


 

I don't know if I'm the only one, but I refuse go anywhere without my little pill box.  None of these are prescription meds, but I'm telling you I keep them with me at all times.  If you need a Tylenol, Benadryl, Pseudoephed, Cranberry pill, Digestive pill... I'm your gal.


 My wallet...


And my shades.


I told you I wasn't too exciting!  You're probably wishing you had the last 2 minutes of your life back. ;)

If you're the curious type and want to see what other people keep in their bag, be sure and check out the link up over at Erin's blog.

I can't wait to see what other people carry around in their bag.

What's one thing besides your wallet or phone that you can't leave home without?

Enjoy your day!

XO,

  1. How fun! Your purse seems so clean :) I tend to accumulate stuff way too quickly. I need to try that chapstick. I have the one you apply with your finger but I need this one instead. And I need to keep floss! I keep flosspicks in my car but I need some in my purse. Lately, I keep my vitamin pill box in my purse :-p

    1. Thanks! :) I try, but I promise it's not always organized. Receipts are what seems to spill out the most. I haven't got a great system down for those.

  6. I have B&BW Japanese Cherry Blossom hand sanitizer connected to my wallet at all times! I've tried other scents, but that one is my absolute favorite- and I feel you on the flossing. I like the floss sticks and probably need to keep some in my purse- good idea!

    1. That's what's funny about posts like these. I doubt most people have anything overly interesting in their purses as well, but we still tend to be curious. :)

  9. Jenny, you have some great ideas here! Floss (I need to add that to my purse) and the pill container. I love the idea of having a bunch of different pills all organized like that. That would be so handy! Also, I love that vaseline chapstick. I have it in my night stand and use it right before bed and first thing in the morning, and I also have some of that lip gloss from Victoria Secret, I absolutely love it. Have a great day!
