Lets Play A Game

A few months ago we were challenged by the MisguidedMommy to photograph what is in our purses.

I figured there is no time like the present to do it. And by present I mean: My kids got me two new purses for Mother's Day and I switched to the new purse already (they insisted!).

Old purse:

New (Fossil) purse:

Other new purse (Kathy Van Zeeland) that I am not using yet:

Junk that was in my purse when I dumped it out on the table:

Organized junk, for your viewing pleasure:

What is it?

  • $20.16 randomly floating around
  • Seven pens
  • Yellow highlighter
  • White-out pen
  • Comb
  • Two toothbrushes
  • Two toothpaste tubes
  • Vaseline hand lotion
  • Bath and body works spray
  • Two tubes of Burt's Bees lip stuff
  • One tube of Bare Escentuals Buxom in Dolly
  • Pur minerals face powder
  • Clear nail polish
  • Two sets of tweezers
  • Six bobby pins
  • Two clips
  • Two hair rubber bands
  • Makeup brush
  • Brown liquid eyeliner
  • Lipstick that I haven't used for over a year
  • Two packets of Neosporin
  • Almost empty bottle of Excedrin
  • Some acne medicine that my mom gave me because my little brother won't use it because it dries his face out. (Like I want my face to dry out?!?!?!?!)
  • Two necklaces, both made by my mom
  • Two packs of matches
  • One lighter
  • My wallet
  • Coasters from my work
  • Bottomless button from my work
  • A key chain medallion from the Hubs work
  • Two pedometers
  • (4) 3-day passes to Disneyland
  • Hotel key from the Suites at Fisherman's Wharf
  • Paint sample paper
  • Build a bear club card
  • Two of my old boss' business cards
  • Nintendo DS flier that looks like an actual DS
  • $50 gift certificate to "Brew It Up" that I bought from for $4
  • Doctor receipt
  • Pay check stub
  • Paper from the kids school with their numbers on it so I can pay for their lunches online
  • SVC paper telling us how much they were giving us for "updating"
  • Green foam paper for in between my flip flops if they hurt my toes
  • red thing from my old purse that held the string together or something

And now for a guessing game/giveaway: How many receipts did I have in my purse? The one who comes the closest gets a $10 gift card...C'mon. Get your guess on, yo!

P.S. You should do this, too!

Mrs. F said...

I think the pink is a portable toothbrush.

Im going to say...... 13.

oh and so when are we going to brew it up? huh? They have some pretty awesome beer/food there. Just sayin. :)

Mrs. F said...

JNJHasleton~ Thank you *takes a bow*

Sarah~ I have had this certificate for 2.5 months now. I need to use it sometime in the next 9 months. I will let you know!

Anonymous~ Even if you were right, which you are not, I have NO IDEA how I would have contacted you. You left NO info, but thanks for stopping by and guessing! :)

Rachel said...

This is great. I cant even imagine what is in my damn purse.

Two comments. First, you have even more shit in your purse than I do. And I carry a rock around in my purse just in case my 5 year old asks where I put this specific rock.

Second, I have sheets that match your new purse. Not sure why I feel compelled to tell you this, but I do. And I love them. And I love your purse. That said, I will never steal your purse for fear of it getting lost when I set it on my bed.

Aba says 21.

I say 52.

We both get a vote, right???

Mrs. F said...

Rachel~ Yeah, I was a bit surprised to see all of that was in there. :)

Followthatdog~ A rock? Really? Your boys are hilarious! And ohhhhh, I bet your sheets are gorgeous! :)

Mommymommyland~ Of course you both get a vote! :)
