A Peek Into My Purse

I’m spilling it.

No, not the beans.

The contents of my purse.

Merrie at Sleepless Mornings tagged for a meme in which I must dump my purse and answer a few related questions.  As far as memes go, this is one of the funner ones I’ve seen, so thanks Merrie, for giving me blogging fodder for the day.   Okay, okay.  In all honesty this post should have gone up last night but we had issues.  Seems our DVR resigned while we were away at Disney World, leaving Heroes to go unrecorded.  So we’re watching it via the internet.  That, btw, sucks.  You can’t fast forward through the commercials when you watch online.  Luckily we’re all caught up now and we can go back to vegging in front of the big screen instead of all crowding onto the couch around a little monitor and sitting in perfect stillness because every rustle drowns out the pitiful sound of aforementioned monitor.

Enough about that though.  On to the dumpage.

And here are the related questions:

Describe the contents of your purse.  It’s pretty self-explanatory, but okay.  I’ve got a wallet, a cell phone, hand sanitizer, a little leather pouch that I use to contain gift cards, store membership cards, etc.  You can see my handy-dandy camera, a little mirror, a tube of sunscreen (a necessity in Arizona), some lip gloss, two pens, a pencil, a barrette, and that white weapon looking thing with a cross on it is a nail file my Gram gave me.  Last but not least is a rain check for Foster Farms chicken breast at 1.77 a pound.  Score, huh?

What is the most important thing in your handbag?  My wallet.  Definitely.

What’s the most embarrassing thing in your handbag?  Actually, this meme caught me at a good time of the month so I’m not embarrassed by anything in there.

What’s the smallest thing in your handbag?  The barrette.

Is there anything illegal in your handbag?  Sheesh, who do they have in mind when they come up with these questions?  Sorry to disappoint but I don’t think I’m packing anything illegal.  Unless you count the fact that I have two other rain checks for the exact same thing in my wallet so perhaps it’s against the rules to get multiple rain checks for the same thing.  I totally live on the edge though.

Here is the fine print:
Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you’re a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.) Don’t look at me, I just cut and paste.
1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile.
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents.
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves.
5. Answer the above questions in your blog.

So, if you want to dump your own purse, please let me know that you’ll be playing along so I can come see what the rest of you are hiding.

  1. Well done, Darcie! You dare devil-mulitiple rain check toting-wild girl, you! :) I like your purse, too! As well as your tiny little phone. I miss having a tiny little phone.

  2. why am I not surprised that “dump the contents of your handbag in a pile” to you means….”neatly stack the contents of your purse in an fashion that is appealing to the eye” You are TOTALLY type A and I love it.

  3. I will absolutely never do this meme because the contents of my purse would look like a hot mess compared to what you just posted. I am so not organized!

  4. I got tagged for this also…and if I had a cute and clean purse such as yourself I would’ve jumped on it…I still might…to be nice to the person that tagged me…but really, IT WILL BE SCARY!

  5. I can’t believe that was all that was in your purse!
    And, it is just like you to lay it all out neatly and organized.
    I don’t even know if I am aware of all the things in my purse. At any given time there could be binkies, matchbox cars, bribery (otherwise known as lollipops), my husbands wallet/cell phone/business cards, and so much more. Come to think of it, it is really the family purse!

  6. This was so fun — and I’ve got to say, I am a little blown away at how neat it all looks. My purse is about 180 degrees from yours! I might take you up on this meme, though — it will give me good fodder for next week… :)

  7. I don’t even have a purse anymore. :( I have a big orange bag. Okay, I love my big orange bag, but you know, I miss the little purse days.

    I might go look in there and see if there is anything good to blog about. Probably not. I know there are a LOT of tissues in there. That is a necessity here in Virginia!
