What the heck is in that thing?


Ladies, I am not sure about you but I have been asked this question from time to time when the man in my  life offers to hold my purse while I am busy rummaging through clothes racks  ” Uh stuff….minus the kitchen sink, you can look” I would often say, thinking that it would  settle any lingering curiosity  to what may be in my bag of unknowns; it’s not like I am carrying my “pretend lipstick” anymore….but they won’t. I assume at one time or another while growing up they were advised by their father to NEVER go into a woman’s purse no matter what or they got their hand slapped by their mother for digging into her purse.

I admit that sometimes my purse gets quite heavy, normally the culprit is the twenty dollars worth of change that lays at the bottom of my purse.

So this morning I thought it would be fun to show you what is in my bag of tricks!!

Picture 002



1. My cellphone

2. My Nook – I normally read during my lunch break

3. My diet pills – Alli and Hydroxycut Max, with my daily combo I only hope it will help in some sort of weight loss.

4. Tampons  – I’m always packing and you should too!!

5. My Stella and Dot wallet – which I just recently got and I LOVE it!!! it holds my phone which is an added bonus.

6. Aleve – for those days like today when my neck is stiff because I slept wrong. I wouldn’t dare compromise my furkids sleep so if I end up sleeping all crooked then I just pay the price later…..with a sore neck or back.

7. Deodorant – because when I am in a hurry to get to work I sometimes don’t remember if I put deodorant on ……9 times out of 10 I do….but then I hate having to doubt myself…..so when in doubt I put more on!!

8.  Benefit Erase Paste – which is a MUST HAVE for women who struggle with dark circles!! I never leave home with out this.

9. Benefit Cabana Glama – when I need a touch up during the day

10. Versace Bright Crystal rollerball perfume

11. My pocket knife – well, actually it was my grandfathers and I never leave home without it.

12. Some change


What’s in your bag of tricks? do you pack light or do you carry everything but the kitchen sink to?

    • I thought that pockets would solve everything to but unfortunately it gives me more places to store things and then I end up losing things….like my keys in those pockets…hahaha…..My husband thinks I should get a smaller purse but then how would I be able to carry all my important must haves??

        • my problem is that I don’t pay attention when I throw my keys in my purse…..sometimes I will shove them in a side pocket, or the inside side pocket….or the section wear I can store little things…….hmmmm….maybe I should just get a purse with not so many pockets….hahaha

          • My search for the keys usually has a slight underpinning of panic attached. And with another part of my mind thinking I know I got here and used the keys so they are in the bag…..I am beginning to get more organized about where things are placed in purse….at least, sometimes…..

  1. I always carry a few tampons, but every time I go to pull something out, the cotton has been pulled slightly out, and is slightly dirty, and is stuck with gum, to the loose change on the bottom, that I am trying to give to the clerk:)

  2. I felt obligated to go through my purse after reading your post. I can’t even explain the reasoning behind this but I have 4 bottles of lotion, 3 tubes of chapstick, 1 tube of lipstick, dog treats, 2 knives, 2 pairs of readers…oh my…I’m too ashamed to tell the rest….
