What's in your purse?

Earlier this year while I was reading one of my favorite blogs called A bowl full of lemons she featured a purse quiz that I have been eager to take ever since. I am not a girly girl, but I LOVE having a nice handbag. A nice handbag doesn't have to be expensive or name brand all the time, but it has to be functional to your needs. My purse is like my mobil home for real. I never leave the house without it. So, today I finally took the time to hop over to What Does Your Handbag Say About You?

According to my answers, my handbag says.....

  • You tend to be relaxed throughout the day. You are naturally at peace.
  • You are a high maintenance person. You feel lost outside of your normal environment.
  • You are open and comfortable with who you are. You don't hide anything.
  • Your motto is: "Be prepared." You don't like to be surprised by anything.
  • You are practical and down to earth. You tend to be a rather reserved and quiet person.
  • You are a very unique and special person. There's no one else who is anything like you.  
It's weird how just a few questions can pin point your personality because this is me all the way - except the high maintenance part of course :)

Now, on to the fun part! Like most people, I love to see how other people organize. I tend to be a little OCD about certain things in my life and my purse is one of them. It is always clean and everything always has a place to go. I recently bought this handbag through hosting a Thirty-One party and I am so glad I finally got it. Plus, the money saver in me is happy too because I got it 50% off :)

It's called the 5th Ave bag and I bought it in a neutral taupe color. One thing I love about this bag is all the storage.

It has a center pocket that has a zip closure and two large side pockets with magnetic snap closure. One of the side pockets has two smaller pockets inside and the other large side pocket has a zip closure pocket inside.

In one side pocket I keep kleenex on the go pack, I have a small key change which holds most of my store reward cards, a mini zipper thirty-one pouch that holds my lip gloss addiction supply and a thirty-one compact mirror along with my thirty one soft wallet.

The second side pocket holds a thirty-one timeless wallet, which holds my Dollar Store monthly glance calendar and all of our medical insurance, HSA account information, gym membership and check register since I don't carry checks with me. The small zipper pouch holds my tooth brush, tooth paste, wax (gotta love braces!), nail clippers, tweezers and a nail file.  

The center pocket holds most of my work related items I need to keep secure like my office keys, bag and creditionals. I also keep a small coupon filer which holds just dinner and retail coupons since they are the only coupons I keep on me all the time and my thirty-one fold-and-go organizer which holds a notepad and my nook.

Whew! Who knew I had so much in my purse. I told ya it was my mobil home :)

What do you keep in your purse? What does your purse say about you? If you take the quiz, I would love to know the results!!


  1. Ok, I took the test, and here is what my handbag says about me....

    You tend to be on high alert. You are very aware of your surroundings.

    You are a low maintenance person. You can adapt to a variety of situations.

    You are practical and down to earth. You tend to be a rather reserved and quiet person.

    I think it sounds pretty good. I don't feel like I am super aware of my surroundings, but I've been told I do. haha

    I only carry a wristlet. Most of the time all that is in t is my card holder, and my cell phone. Oh and of course like 4 dollars in change and reciepts. haha

  2. I wish I could only carry a wristlet. I've tried and I think I just carry to much junk with me haha. The only time I don't carry my full purse is when we go to an amusement park or some place with activities and a very large crowd. I wonder what question prompted my "high maintenance" answer haha.

  3. haha I wondered that too... you don't seem high maintenance... unless it was the name brand question??

    1. No, not at all. Brian saw the high maintenance answered and laughed. It probably is the name brand thing. Oh well, I'll take it haha
