I bet you didn’t realize there is a day for cleaning out your purse. Well I didn’t know till a fellow blogger brought it to my attention. Since I don’t really “clean” my purse out very often I thought a good cleaning/organizing was in order and maybe a switch of purses. I have been using the same purse for, um, over 3 years. YES.. I said over 3 years. But, it is a Miche purse so I have many of the shells but the same base purse. It is showing wear, and honestly I needed a change so this was perfect timing. As well as a fun post and a giveaway for all you wonderful Living Smart Girl followers.
Here is what my purse looks like ~
Yeah.. sorta boring I know. I love black and am always drawn to it because it goes with everything.
Here is the inside of my purse. I have not zipped my purse shut in about 3 years. I can’t, it is to full.
And here is all the crap out of my purse. Boy, sometimes I wonder why I carry all I do, and how it all fits. Yikes!
So, let’s do a rundown. A wallet, a checkbook, wet wipes, dramamine, perfume, motrin, Rolaids, hair band, band-aid, eye liner, face brush, compact, teeth cleaners, lip gloss and chap stick, gum, hand lotion, hair spray, pens, plastic holder for coupons and finally a pocket calendar. Dang.. do I really need all this stuff? And most times when I am shopping or out I have other stuff like Cliff bars or other snacks in my purse. No wonder my purse doesn’t zip!!
Well I am organizing all my purse goods and they will go back in my new purse. When I went and found a purse to use for the giveaway I wanted to find a fun, summer, brightly colored purse for someone to win and I was also drawn to one of the same color but a bit smaller. Fun.. I have never ever carried a purse of this color. It is a bit bigger than my Miche purse, has 3 nice pockets as well as a smaller zipper pocket on each side. So, we will see how long I carry this one. At least it matches my Harley Davidson jacket. 😉
What is in your purse? Do you ever clean it out? How long have you used the same purse?
