Life Crumbs-Mystery Bag Unveiling

Because I'm nosy and maybe even a bit of voyeur (if that term applies here), I suggested that we get a sneak peek into what life crumbs you sling daily be it a purse, backpack, diaper bag, man purse, gym bag or what you shove in your coat pockets. I just want to know if yours is as heavy as mine or if it contains anything super weird. Mostly I want to feel better about what's in mine.

Soooo...I went and suggested to Stasha the, OZ of Monday Listicles, that we show 10 Things aka the crap in our purses. In the interest of full disclosure, it was really just the excuse I needed to clean the thing out. I chose not to picture the handful of saltine cracker crumbs or the broken fortune cookie found in the depths of mine.And not everything I pulled out made it back into the bag.

 The bag and its mystery weight 
(minus the phone I used to snap the photos )

 1. A couple of on-the-go Greens. Never know when I will need to power up
2. Broken earrings
3. Crayons. You have NO IDEA how handy it is to have these at your fingertips! 
4. The total sum of cash in my purse. 

 5. The microchip that SHOULD be in the cat. Don't ask (or judge)

 6. My needles. Both used an unused. 
No, it isn't for heroine. Thanks for asking tho

 7. Lil Duck's additions...the thermometer for when her giraffe 
has a fever, a random LEGO and hair stuffs

8. My WonderWoman wallet (no money, just a debit card, insurance card and work license)
9. My work id granting me entrance into jail, drug rehab, the ER, job fairs and the Zoo.

10. The bag in the bag...cherry Vaseline, hand sanitizer, newly acquired epi pen, random coupon and lipstick; all VERY standard in any woman's bag. Although I will caution a gal when replacing the travel size hand sanitizer, the bottle looks strikingly the same as Astroglide. 

I did put the wad of old receipts back into one of the pockets. 
Seriously, you never know when you're going to be 
somewhere and need toilet paper
It happens. 
Drip dry ain't cool, Quackers. 
So what's in yours?

BWhahaha the receipts comment got me. Glad to know boys are not the only ones to toss random legos in purses.

Danielle said...

No judgement, but um, are you planning on embedding the cat's ship yourself? o.0

And the receipts? That's the only logical thing to do :)

The Dose of Reality said...

Straight up awesome. And we had the BEST time ever with this topic!! So glad you suggested it. Wish I had thought to turn this listicle into a purse cleaning out party! ;)

Andrea B. said...

I need to do this. But which bag do I choose? I try to switch 'em up and then tend to move stuff from bag to bag to - you get the picture. :>

Stephanie Sprenger said...

This was a great idea- I love this Listicle! My hands-down favorites in your bag were the microchip that should be in your cat (HA!) and the thermometer for the giraffe. Fantastic.

Just A Normal Mom said...

Thanks for the post idea!
I spy a Home Depot gift card in there! We have a couple of bags of those needles that we "inherited" when my FIL passed away. I'm sorry you have to use them for their intended purpose, but I must say, those fine tips are fantastic for sliver removal or zit popping. Just sayin'. (not too many people are going to admit to that, now, are they?)

Diane said...

Okay, I have some questions but you said not to ask so I won't! Yours was way more interesting than mine since I just very recently got a new purse and didn't transfer all the junk over. And I am IN LOVE with that Wonder Woman wallet! :)

Cocalores said...

I also have lots of coins flying around in my purse - I just let them slip in there and when I run out of coin money, I dump all my belongings on the ground and search for them, ha ha! Your cat's chip.... no idea what you're doing with that in your purse ;-)

Mrs RKFJ said...

WOW! The Wonder Woman wallet is boss! Your purse wins hands down with randomness.

Rory Bore said...

first, awesome topic!!!

I feel somewhat vindicated and validated regarding my own purse contents. You definitely win though....because Wonder Woman! hello! awesome. said...

This is great! There's nothing worse than being in a washroom stall, finishing up only to find there is no toilet paper. Great idea. said...

The Bonny Bard said...

Now I know why you picked this topic, your purse is awesomsauce! And now, whole new use for old receipts sitting around aimlessly in my purse. Thanks!

Stacey said...

At least if you ever lose your purse you have a tracking device in it! Ha!

Kim@Co-Pilot Mom said...

Great Listicle suggestion! And it gave me an opportunity to clean out my purse again. Maybe I'll do better with keeping it organized this year. Probably not, though.

Kenya G. Johnson said...

#10 Oh my. I just HOPE it was used on your hands. (And in private). LOL!!

Babes Mami said...

I now feel like I need backup toilet paper in my bag!

Taylor Gilmore said...

Hah! I love it!! I thought I was the Queen of the junk filled purse, but you definitely have me beat. Alas, I must pass the crown onto it's rightful owner. (sigh)

Kate Hall said...

I'm really curious about the on-the-go greens. Is it a powder you mix with water? I need to look into those. I always enjoy reading your posts. I love the way you talk, I mean write, I guess your "voice". :-)

Misfit Mommy (aka the Antichrist) said...

Let's just say, that at this point, it's probably safer if I don't mention what's in my purse...I haven't cleaned it out since at least October.

Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms said...

You picked a great fun topic. I have to thank you because now I know I'm not alone in my mess. I love the list of places that your ID can get you into, but wouldn't just saying the zoo have covered them all? :)

I love your wallet. Isn't there a picture of you in a Wonder Woman costume? If there isn't, there should be.

I need to share your receipt tip with Erin. Maybe now in addition to swearing off paper towels, she can cut out toilet paper too. Ellen

Carrie Rambles said...

Okay, now you must tell me about the microchip. I NEED to know.

The amount of needles sorta do give off a junkie vibe, or at least would make a junkie happy if they robbed you.

*snort* astroglide

Why didn't you remind me about this, my purse really needs cleaned

SouthMainMuse said...

The greens-on-the-go? I've never seen that. Will have to look that up. And the needles. You have to post about that. Crayons. You don't know how many grocery lists I've made in crayons because that's all I can find.

ChicStreetChoc Eriel said...

You have such a fantastic blog!
I'd sure love to follow each other! Would you follow me first and let me know so I can follow you back immediately?

@dkotucker said...

That was really a fun topic!!! I LOVE your wallet!

Stasha said...

Thanks for calling this weeks list. I am ashamed to admit I love looking into your purses!! Wonder Woman checks??! Awesome!!!!
