Inside My Purse

These are the current contents of my purse:

  • a [clean] pair of socks
  • the head scarf that I wore yesterday
  • the DCC Sunday school lesson from when I taught Tucker’s class 3 weeks ago
  • the DCC bulletin from 2 weeks ago
  • 2 phone chargers
  • my Zune
  • 3 undone yarn friendship bracelets from aforementioned Sunday school class
  • the postcard from the health department telling me that Vanessa was due for her 6-month immunizations on 10/31 (She is currently 9 months old.)
  • a piece of gum that I confiscated from Tucker’s mouth moments after he started chewing it without permission (It is wrapped, of course. Come on, I’m not that gross.)
  • 3 mechanical pencils
  • 4 various colored pens
  • 2 cell phones (work and personal)
  • approximately 5,942 receipts*
  • approximately 2,763 coupons*
  • 1/3 of a bottle of water from I-don’t-know-when
  • 3 packs of gum (un-chewed, this time)
  • my ticket to the Mitt Romney Rally in Defiance (insert sad face)
  • 2 tubes of chapstick
  • 3 tubes of lipstick
  • 2 tubes (is that what they’re called?) of lip gloss
  • some tissues
  • some napkins
  • a movie theater gift card that we had so long without using (3 years?) that when we tried to use it the magnetic strip was too worn out and it could not be redeemed (insert ticked-off/sad face)
  • oh, look! another church bulletin!
  • a plastic nail from the boys’ toy tool bench
  • 3 bottles of various vitamins that I haven’t taken in months (I’m so forgetful with medication. Good thing I’m not on anything important! Except when I used to be on birth control. We see how forgetting to take that turned out.)

There’s actually a lot more in my purse, but the rest is pretty boring. So. What does this say about me? (Other than I need to clean out my purse and I’m a hoarder and I’m messy and I suck.)

What’s your favorite item? And, what’s in your wallet? Er, purse?
