What's In My Purse?


If you read my Five on Friday post a couple weeks ago, you saw that I scored this cute Steve Madden bag at Ross for $39. I love it! As I was switching my stuff over to it, I thought I'd share all of my favorite things that I always carry in my purse. I love reading these posts, so why not? Disclaimer- I'm a neat freak, you'll see... It's reflected in my bags too!



Lately I've been carrying some Dasani or Crystal Light drops in my purse, I like something fruity every once in a while. Of course my wallet, makeup bag, planner, a note book and my pill box. I take a lot of vitamins, it's kind of ridiculous. 

The contents of the inside pocket- My 2 favorite gums, pens and a little card holder that I keep all of my perk and discount cards in. 

The contents of my makeup bag- All of my essentials. 
My lip products rotate, depending on what I'm in the mood for. My Mac lipstick in Midimauve stays put though. Chapstick, powder, lotion, hand sanitizer, floss, tweezers, nail clippers and some hair pins are always a must.

What is a must have in YOUR purse?

  6. Hahaha. I can't wait to jokingly show mine someday. It's usually gum wrappers and gift cards I'll lose before I actually spend.

  8. You're just like me - always have to have a decent amount of pens thrown into a purse no matter the size! I love this post - thanks for sharing. :)

  9. Your purse is much more organized than mine! I try to organize it often but it just gets back to messy quickly.

  10. I'm jealous of how neatly organized your purse is! I like the idea of separating your loyalty cards. Mine are taking over my wallet! And I also need to implement a little bag to keep all my makeup-type items in. Mine just kind of float around in pockets right now. Officially reorganizing my purse now! Thanks for the inspiration :) Also, I'm dying over that striped bag.

  12. I'm still so jealous of that bag! The color is perfect and even the inside is cute! I'd also like to try each and every one of your lip products!

  13. We may as well be carrying the same purse around - I have all of the exact same stuff in my bag and am a total neat freak, too! My husband is always making fun of me because I have so many lip products in my purse that every time I use one I pull out a different one, haha!

  14. My must lately has been my Kindle :) So when I'm stuck in traffic, waiting on my husband, I can get in a few pages :)

  16. That purse is so perfect for summer. Chapstick, floss and bobby pins or a hair tie are MUSTS!

  17. Your bag is so organized, mine is a mess of old receipts, lip glosses in every pocket, pens, wallet, loose change, etc!! I HAVE to have chapstick though and ibuprofen - two musts!

  18. You'd have a heart attack if you saw my purse. I keep everything but the kitchen sink in there. It's a mess!

  21. Love that purse! And what a steal! I've been in the market for a good purse that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, definitely hitting up Ross and TJMaxx soon!
    I like to keep my purse pretty organized too, and I carry notebooks with me as well.
    Thanks for sharing!

  23. I absolutely love posts like this! I think it's because I'm kind of nosey ;-) I have so many lip glosses and no hair ties.....but always need a hair tie and don't really need gloss during the day.....*sigh* #firstworldproblems
