I am not a purse person but I am intrigued by people who are. Even for non-purse people like me, I think that what’s in a purse tells you something about that person. I’m not sure what it tells you, but I suppose it tells you something. And I think the size and style of a purse definitely tells you something. So let’s play a game – I’ll tell you about my purse and if you feel like playing along – you can tell me about yours. (and if I get an embarrassingly small amount of comments, we’ll just chalk this up to me telling you about me.)
I own four purses. Three of them are very small. As in not much taller or wider than the span of my hand small. Those three are black leather, brown suede and multicolored fabric. All three of them have a long enough strap to be worn across my body because when I do carry a purse I prefer to have my hands completely free. The fourth purse is a medium size Vera Bradly backpack that I only use when we go on vacation. I am currently carrying the brown suede purse… I think it’s a Fossil brand:
What’s in my current purse?
- two tubes of Blistex
- An old grocery list (from yesterday so not that old
- A Kleenex, not used
- my wallet
That’s it. If I’m going out with my purse it will also carry my cell phone. Over the Christmas season it carried a number of receipts but I cleaned those out last week.
So what’s it say? Am I a minimalist? Am I very concerned about chapped lips? I don’t know what it means other than I’m not the kind of girl that likes to haul around a purse. I’ve never owned a purse that cost more than $20 – well that Vera Bradly bag might but I didn’t pay for it. And even when my kids were small, I didn’t carry around a big purse. I used that little backpack on day trips so I could stuff in a diaper & sippy cup & snack.
My poor girls, this is probably another example of where they got screwed with me as a mom. Add it to the list of doesn’t use make-up and doesn’t own a curling iron or hair spray.
Turnabout is fair play… what’s in your purse?
