What's in your wallet?

Before (when I was in Central Market in Dallas, I weighed my purse. The contents were roughly the same as they are here. One notable difference, I had a small paperback book in my purse at the time. My purse weighed 5.5 pounds)


What's inside...


Wallet, first aide kit/makeup bag, coupons, mirror, gum, meds, lotion, compact, ear buds, cough drops, keychain, chapstick, hand sanitizer, mints, kleenex, sun glasses and old voter registration information - I need to change my name and have been meaning to do that all week.

    My purse almost always contains a computer mouse, a diaper, or both.  Yes, this amuses me.

    I'v ebeen very determined to keep my new purse free of random receipts and crap, and I've done a pretty good job so far.  Got to keep the nice things nice. :)

    This.  I just bought a new purse over the holidays and I can easily fit everything in it, but holy jeez is it heavy.  I think most of it is the ridiculous number of packages of gums and mints that I keep buying but never eat/chew.

    H kills me with his reciepts. THROW THEM AWAY. They are everywhere. Pretty much everytime I get in his car, I have to wait for him to clean all the reciepts out of his car. He never does anything with them, so I don't know why he keeps them.

    Hmm. I do have 3 receipts in there from yesterday.  I toss them in there when there's no trash can around or if it's a receipt I actually need to keep, then sometimes I forget for a while.

    I have:
    * wallet
    * sunglasses
    * mini smashbox powder + a brush
    * business cards & lip gloss in a zipper pocket
    * one Wet Ones pocket pack
    * one toddler granola bar
    * pen
    * hair band
    * pair of fleece gloves
    * iphone
    * laptop power cord
    * wireless mouse

    Heck, even my car keys are in my jacket pocket right now instead of in my purse.

    The only thing I keep in my purse is my wallet, some chapstick, a pen, and sometimes my phone. But when I have my camera bag with me (like I did in San Diego for those of you at the GTG who wondered WTF it was), I'm typically carrying about six pounds of gear.
