I realized a few years ago that I was a total goldfish when it came to purses. However big my purse was I grew to fit into it, so I stopped carrying a purse and went the clutch route. This is the one I've been carrying for the past...year?
(Full disclosure: it's a seed bag from the hardware store...I know I know... I'm my own cliche.) It typically gets thrown into diaper bags or left behind altogether since I mostly just pocket my phone because my case houses my ID and primary credit card.
And the honest dump.
Cash. Chapstick. Pen. Receipts. Spare car key.
Rhogam record. Coin purse. Rosary. Checks
Dr.'s appt reminder from September. USB drive. Cards. Key to?? Anthropologie gift card. Natural bodycare recipes.
Gift cards to Amy's Ice Cream in Austin. Sunglasses. Address book turned grocery prices record.
Well this chapstick for one. Vanilla Mint. It's the best chapstick ever but it's been discontinued, so I've been nursing it for...ahem...too long to admit.
These Amy's Ice Cream coupons were a wedding gift from an Austin friend.
Every time in the last five years that we've been in Austin we've forgotten them, so they graduated to my purse because NEXT time we will be ready. Which might be Edel in July if you want to tag along.
And my favorite thing in here? Easy. This many years old green pouch and its contents.
It's a Florentine leather coin purse that an old boyfriend's brother bought me in Italy to replace one that was stolen from me. (Yes, Chelsea, your husband got it for me because he's swell. Now stop reading and start a blog.) The coin purse stores a crucifix that Jacob bought me in Budapest and a love letter he sent me while we were dating; it's falling apart, but we're not ;) awwwww.
And since you're all on the edges of your toilets wondering how our potty training is going, I'll let you decipher it for yourself.
I might have to rethink my rewards system...
Till tomorrow, friends!
