What's in MY Purse?

When I realized what this week's topic was, I laughed a little. I admit it. I haven't cleaned out my purse in a while, so who knows what lurks in it's depths. Ready to find out? Here we go...
  1. A Book: Dragon's Lair by Denise Lynn. The wonderful Denise Lynn is in my local writing group and she gave me a copy on Saturday. It's a book I've been waiting to read ever since I learned about it...but I can't start reading it until I finish the current book I'm reading.

  2. Another Book: A Handbook of Chakra Healing by Kalashatra Govinda. This was also given to me at my writer's group on Saturday. My current book has a heroine who can see auras, and my friend thought this book might be helpful.

  3. Some of my cover flats for A Taste of Magic. Just in case I run into some folks I want to show off my book cover to.

  4. Handouts from the amazing speaker (Heather Bradley) we had at Saturday's meeting. We learned about energy zappers and energy juicers--basically, what zaps our writing energy and what juices it up. Awesome presentation, btw.

  5. My wallet with various business cards, checks, credit cards, and the like. (No cash, though...I rarely carry cash around with me anymore.)

  6. A bunch of reciepts crammed into the bottom of my purse. Some are destined for the garbage and some are destined for my tax receipt envelope. Of course, I need to take the time to go through them to discern which is which.

  7. A pair of gloves...it gets cold here.

  8. Chapstick, lip gloss, eye drops, a package of gum, and some Tic-Tacs.

  9. A Tide stick...cuz I'm pretty much guaranteed to need one with four kids.

  10. Pens...lots and lots of pens, and a small notebook

  11. Keys, naturally

  12. A couple takeout menus from area restaurants that have never made it into my takeout menu drawer in the kitchen.

  13. Sunglasses, handiwipes, ibuprofen, and sore throat drops from my last cold

That's it! Yes, I have a large purse...even larger when I share that at times, my mini laptop (netbook, I think they're called?) also fits into it.

So nothing too out of the ordinary...at least nothing I'm embarrassed by. So, what's in YOUR purse?

A Tide stick. . .now why didn't I think of that?! Now, I'm feeling like I need a bigger purse so I can also carry books and cover flat with me :-).

So...what ARE the energy zappers and juicers? Don't leave a girl hangin'! LOL!

I love my Tide stick... :)

I'll send off an email later this week about the zappers and the juicers. Seriously good information!

Tracy, oh my gosh. A Tide Stick would change my life. I'm adding it tomorrow. Thank you for the suggestion. I've been carrying everything else but.
