A Peek Inside My Purse

I have a pretty small purse, but I often find myself digging around for something I know must be inside my purse somewhere— usually my car key.

I knew things had gotten out of hand when I couldn’t find my inhaler before a run, but found it in the bottom of my purse a few hours later. Since I only have mild exercise-induced asthma I don’t usually carry it with me, but I had stashed it in purse for my trip to Fitbloggin’ a few weeks ago and then forgotten it was there.

This weekend I decided to do the only thing that would make me clean out my purse–dump everything out and only put back what I really need to carry around.

These are essentials:

My wallet, business card holder, work key card holder–all went back in first.

I don’t think I need quite this many personal items.

One of those long Clinique lipsticks is used up and needed to be thrown away, and
I probably can get by with just one lip balm.
I put the inhaler by my running gear, and
put everything else back in my purse.

I don’t know how I ended up with this much chocolate!

I threw out the worn looking piece in the red wrapper,
put two pieces back in my purse
(you never know when you will need a piece of chocolate!),
and put the rest away in my pantry.

I had no idea I had these snacks in my purse!
They must be more leftovers from my Fitbloggin’ trip.

I put them both back in the pantry, although the pumpkin seeds may be too stale by now.

Then there was the usual stash of coupons, receipts, and grocery store cards.

I tossed the expired coupons, put the work receipts in my work bag,
and put the rest away where I might be able to find them when I need them!

That left this random collection.

I always carry a USB drive and earbuds.
The beads are from a church craft project.
These all went back in my purse.

After all that, I didn’t end up getting rid of that much stuff,
but at least now my purse is sorted and organized.

When’s the last time you cleaned out your purse? 

What’s the oddest thing you ever found in your purse?

    YAY!
    Ive been anticipating this since I spied the pic on twitter.
    My post would be WHATS TUCKED IN MY BRA (coming soon :0)) as I have no purse.

    I love organising my purse! But I never end up throwing away all that much, same as you! Haha.

    When’s the last time you cleaned out your purse? I usually do it about once a week, I think maybe 3 days ago.

    What’s the oddest thing you ever found in your purse? A used plaster. Not from me. YUCK.

    Love this! I am gulty of having way too much stuff in my purse that I don't need. Maybe I will do a post like this too!

  4. Carrie says:

    Wow! That's a lot to fit in a little purse. My purse is small, I don't carry a lot of stuff.

  5. Man oh man I need to clean out my purse. I carry a golf ball with me to roll out my feet. My husband was calling my purse a Harry Potter purse the other day – in that I reach my hand in there and it magically goes to the house and pulls out anything you might need LOL

  6. Cute purse, BTW!!!
    I change my purse several times a week (a big improvement because it used to be daily!) so that keeps the clutter down since I clean it every time. One of my many anal issues!

    haha I love your chocolate stash. I usually always have wallet, lip balm, metrocard, headphones. I should carry a USB stick around because you never know when it might come in handy.

    Maple Syrup. Salt. Pepper. Ketchup. Crayons. Tabasco Sauce. BBQ sauce wet wipes.
    These are but a few of the items currently in my purse. Surprised much?

    Who doesn’t like a good “what’s in my purse” post. I have recently shared one of these on my blog as well. I must say that I haven’t really had anything unusual, always hold on to perfume testers and have a large number of business cards. I try to clear my bag of un-needed cargo once a week.
