A Little of This and A Little of That

I love purses. I collect purses like other women collect shoes. I'm not exactly sure what it is about purses that I like so much. Perhaps it goes back to my early years when I would happily organize my brand new school bag and school supplies before each new school year. There was something so exciting about knowing you were organized. I think that may be why I love getting a new purse. It's not the purse itself that I find thrilling, but rather the idea that I will be able to move all of my "stuff" from one purse to the other.

In any case, I must admit that I don't typically carry that much in my purse. The following is exactly what I have in my bag right now.

My Wallet
A light pink lip gloss
A roll on perfume
A cheque book and pen
My keys
A few crumpled receipts from a few outings
A notepad
Anti-bacterial wipes

That's it. Have a great weekend.

Best,
Carolyn

You're pretty much my hero (er, heroine?) right now. I so wish I could carry just the necessities (the real ones, and not the imagined ones) in my purse. Sigh.

Thanks, but I must admit that most of the time I find myself at a loss for something. Minimal is not always better. I loved all your posts this week. You are all such amazing writers...don't mean to gush. :)

Carolyn, I'm always feeling like I'm missing something, too. And I'm carrying around a lot more stuff!

I love that you call it a "cheque" book. Must start using the Canadian spelling of words. Looks so much cooler!
