You guys, this is still really hard for me to talk about. I’ve had this purse [above] for a year and a half. That’s almost 550 days. So many memories. So many great places it’s been. So many hours lost of my life where I couldn’t find my keys, or my wallet, or my money, or my work I.D badge. So much time. Wasted.
As you can see, I was being sarcastic when I said this was still really hard for me to talk about. I feel like a new person. Look at all that crap I had in there? That would be:
- A coin purse
- Face wash towelettes
- 4 tampons
- Various pencils, pens, and markers
- Pain reliever
- 2 tubes of chapstick
- Coins NOT in the coin purse
- Hair ties
- SPF 30 Face Wipe
- A parking ticket
- 20 sheets of paper
- A Moleskin journal
- My work I.D. badge
- A baggu
- My wallet
- My keys
Not to mention that I sometimes would put my Canon DSLR, a novel, and perhaps a scarf or a change of clothes in my purse throughout the day. So I had this thought: DOWNSIZE.
AND IT ALL FITS IN HERE! I’m a new woman. Of course, I had another brilliant idea to keep a tote in my car with any extra essentials I may need from time to time. It works. Perfectly.
P.S. I’m now in the market for a slimmer, thinner wallet to fit in here. Any suggestions would be fab. Never mind! Found one!
P.S.S. Sorry for the nasty carpet photos. Someday I’ll have hardwood.
