What’s in your purse….
My cousin told me once that the condition of the inside of your purse determine how your life is. Or something like that. You know, if its clean and neat then your probably current with your bills and content with your life. But if it’s a dump and unorganized then your probably behind with your finances and your life is probably a bit chaotic.
Purse, pocketbook, handbag or whatever you call yours. Growing up in St Louis I always referred to it as a purse. But once I moved to the South, everyone was calling them pocketbooks. Contents in ones purse is very personal. I think prying through someone else’s (even a spouse) is very invasive. That’s someplace you just shouldn’t go unless invited. Some people carry their journals, tampons, private notes or contraceptives. It’s so much more than a man’s wallet. You’ll sometimes find jewelry, make up and even food.
Sometimes my purse is clean and orderly, sometimes not. I think the contents of your purse tell a lot about you. My ingredients usually remain the same. Let me share with you my inventory that I carry with me in mine… Wallet, Reading glasses, Pocket mirror, 3 different kinds of eye liner, mascara, chap sticks, medicine case, hair brush, cell phone charger, lotion, earrings, keys, pocket calendar, cell phone, pen and sometimes my gun. Now if you were to ask my daughter, her list would include (this is my guess) heels, make up, hair brush, change, wallet, jewelry, keys, book, fashion scarf, sunglasses, pony tail holder, pens, ticket stubs, fingernail file, umbrella, calculator, hanger and probably about 25 more pounds of stuff. Just kidding Kari. I really don’t know whats in her bag since I have never been in it. But I have lifted it and it is heavy enough to cause a back injury. Share with me your purse ingredients…
