What I found when I cleaned out my purse
As the mother of four boys, there are a few places that become neglected, catch-all areas for life. The car is one. My pockets are another. I stand by my dresser each night emptying out Legos, wrappers, Kleenex and string.
Then there is the purse. I cleaned it out yesterday. Here is what I found:
*wallet *makeup bag *notebook *small photo album *Fisher-Price police car *I Spy Bag *four shopping lists
*COSTCO coupons *Primary program script *baby hat *Playmobile pirate *watch *teething blanket *Pull-up
*Joann coupons *Parent-teacher conference summary *handout for church trunk-or-treat *granola bar wrapper
*graham cracker wrapper *quilting fabric scraps *church program *half-eaten Powerbar *Book of Knock-Knock Jokes
*burp cloth *orange bouncy ball *stack of plastic cups *5 pens *various receipts *1 pair swimming goggles
*smushed (but unopened) Powerbar *toy car *baby wipes *1 pair boys underwear *small bottle hand lotion
*blue and white hankerchief *hand sanitizer *2 nursing pads *1 baggie pretzels *clothespin *1 seven-day fitness pass
*keys *lip balm *sunglasses *cough drop *1 spoon *police badge sticker *1 Halloween pencil
I figure I’m pretty much set for any emergency, be it swimming the English Channel, hanging laundry, feeding a small multitude, or facing Goliath.
What’s lurking in your purse?
