What’s in my purse?

I was lucky enough to be able to guest post on the Snap blog a while ago with a fun glimpse inside my handbag. I enjoy reading those guest posts because it is an opportunity to snoop inside other people’s business. Now is your chance to snoop inside my purse!

I am going to be honest with you. I found myself a new purse knowing that I was going to be doing this post. My old one was way overdue. I hated it and was thrilled to find this gem on clearance at Target for $20! While we’re being honest here, I will also tell you that I took about 6 different pictures of the junk in my purse because I had just been digging through trying to find something and I kept forgetting things that I normally in my purse. I may have been thinking a few curse words, but I got it done! Here’s what you’ll find in my purse…

1. Sunglasses- I go through phases of wearing them constantly and then completely forgetting they are in my purse.
2. Beauty products- I am a cosmetologist by trade. I feel like it has been ingrained in me to always carry a few “essentials” such as perfume, lipstick, mascara, etc. 
3. Other “essentials”- I can’t live without my Tide To Go pen. You never know when you’ll need bobby pins, nail clippers, or “girl crap” either. I keep them all in a cute bag I won on a friend’s blog.
4. Small camera- I like to take around my non fancy camera with me for those moments that I need a better picture than my phone can take.
5. Wallet- It never buttons up because I have too much crap inside. Not to be confused for money. That seems to never be in there.
6. Coupons- Mostly to craft stores, but a few other ones seem to linger in there too.
7. Randomness- This can all be found in the same pocket. Mints, pens, and an immunization card for my baby.
8. Business cards- I learned that you never know when you need these. I didn’t used to carry these with me, but I once learned the hard way that I should always have them with me.
9. Substitute ID- I used to substitute teach a lot more often before having my baby. I would forget the ID unless it was in my purse. I don’t do it last minute anymore. I could probably take this out of my purse.
10. My phone- I just joined the smartphone world about 2 weeks ago. I don’t know how I lived before that.
11. iPad- Now that I have a smartphone, I probably don’t need to take this with me everywhere anymore. I guess it is just a habit. 

What do you think? Do I have too much crap in there?

Um you have such cute everything! And definitely not too much- this is about half of the stuff I carry around! (I still read your blog and love it, just rarely have time to comment). :)

Not at ALL too much stuff! And I love your new purse! I would totally have to get one too because I don't even HAVE one I'm using right now. What the? I'm using an ugly homemade beach tote. Blah. Anyway, cute purse and cute stuff! I love your iPad cover! {Nat}
