Last night I went thru all the things that I have in my purse.
Eyeglasses and holder
1 lip balm
Notebook with pen
3 more pens…one is a stylus, but I don’t have my tablet with me and my tablet has a stylus.
Small pedometer that I always forget to wear.
Gum and mints
Small notebook with passwords in it in case I lose my cell phone
What I took out of my purse
Compact-I rarely “powder” my nose
1 lip balm
Eyeglass wipes-I put them in the eyeglass holder
Small pedometer that I always forget to wear-I took it out and put in my office drawer…no I mean I am wearing it!!! Who am I kidding!
Small notebook with passwords in it in case I lose my cell phone – I made a copy to keep at work
So my big purse feels really empty, but I am determined to carry it all month.
Yeah, I don’t see that happening!
Bright blue skirt
Red, blues, teal and white stripe scarf
The purse I have been carrying all month I like and I am keeping. So I got out the vintage straw purse and started pulling only the items I needed to carry.
My wallet – which I changed to a smaller one
Change purse because I have a smaller wallet
by the time I got to note book and lipstick I could not get the straw purse to close.
I tried another vintage straw purse. The top left brown straw purse.
Same thing happened.
So instead I change to this purse.
I changed my wallet back and everything fit. It’s a big purse, but not as big as the orangey one from last month. I will see how this one does.
As for the vintage purses. I now know that they should be carried when I am going to a wedding, church, or lunch with the girls etc. As for every day life not so much. This got me to thinking about how much stuff I carry in my purse. So I am still going to try to slim down what I carry and see what I can do without.
Purple, pink and blue floral scarf – another $1.00 Tree find
These are the other scarves I got at the $1.00 Tree
but May is just around the corner so I am deciding what purse to carry next and I am going to try and carry this one.
This is a vintage purse I got at Goodwill for just $4.99. It is kinda roomy and opens nice and wide. I am going to try to carry very minimal. I really don’t see this as being a success, but it’s worth the try.
Floral scarf with blues, pinks, yellows. I can’t find my camera so when I do I will take a picture of my scarf…that I got at the $1.00 Tree!
