What’s In My Bag?

Posted on

My purse was busting at the seams yesterday, so I figured it was time to clean house.

Here is a list of what was in there:


  • My Longchamps wallet – classic, black, understated zip-around… I searched for years for the perfect one, and at long last found it in Vancouver.
  • My Maui Jim aviators, a gift from when we went to Hawaii last July for my husband’s work conference.  I know.
  • Movie tickets – I saw “Her” last night with another Mama friend who hasn’t been to the movies in ages, and it was good.  SO good.  Joaquin Phoenix is a kind of a master.
  • A pen.
  • Gum.
  • Consonant Organic Lip Conditioner, amazing for combating the crackling dryness of my office.
  • Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color (in Naked), for when I’m feelin’ fancy!
  • A small tin of Nivea.  Of course.
  • What I like to call a, “mom clip” for my hair.  They’re super sexy, guys.
  • About a thousand loose dimes (WTF?!  Do I subconsciously have some strange hatred for paying with dimes??).
  • An empty plastic bead case, once filled with Cheerios, no doubt.
  • A bamboo baby spoon, a great distraction tool for babies.
  • A zip lock baggie with a selection of crayons.
  • A small notebook for Bee to use the crayons in, another great distraction tool!
  • A crumpled, sad, UNUSED diaper.
  • A couple of teeny, tiny baby hair elastics.  I mean… come on.  So cute.
  • A mini Robert Munsch book (this one is Angela’s Airplane, but we have a couple others scattered around the car and various other places).
  • An UNUSED (at least…I THINK it’s unused) face cloth.
  • And for some reason, a single, very obviously dirty, baby sock.

I’m a bit shocked that all of that fit into my purse somehow!  It’s not even that big of a bag!  I guess I’m just good at ignoring

I’ve shown you mine!  What’s in your bag?

    Let me guess, no cover for the sunglasses? Mine are always banging around in there against my keys, prescription lenses of course. What mom has time to deal with things like cases right?

      Oh, of course not! The case went missing ages and ages ago. Probably buried amongst the toys Bee no longer plays with. You can’t tell from the picture, but they’re actually quite warped – I noticed when I pulled them out of my purse, at first thinking, “wow! Sunglasses!” Followed by, “shit. They’re bent.” Ugh. At least they were free 😉
