FBFF - In the Bag

The FBFF topic for today is "What's in your purse?", and as I started thinking about this, the more appropriate question is "what isn't in my purse?"  I mean, I guess I believe in being prepared.  Here's my list, in order of importance:

Essentials:  If I leave the house and don't have these items, I will need to go back:
  • Cell Phone
  • Keys
  • Sunglasses
  • Wallet 
  • Chapstick
  • Eye Drops

Things I usually have, but won't panic if I am without:
  • camera
  • Kleenex
  • hand lotion
  • at least 1 pen (or 4, as evidenced here)
  • iPod - yes, that's a first generation iPod that only plays music. 
  • Tide pen
  • Gum
  • Tylenol, Advil, or Aleve
  •  Weekly planner

So, what is in my wallet?  Well, right now:
  • Driver's license
  • Credit and debit cards
  • various rewards cards (Panera, Dillon's, Ulta, DSW, etc)
  • Gift card to Loft
  • Insurance Card
  • A few of my business cards - which I have never given to anyone.  
  • Blockbuster card (probably hasn't been used in a few years)
  • 4 frequent flier cards from various airlines - all with my maiden name, and probably expired miles
  • Some checks I need to deposit at the bank
  • 7 pennies (one of which is from Canada - not sure where I picked that up)
  • 16 quarters.  Because I had a moment of vending machine weakness and a $5 bill.
  • A $2 bill.  I have had this for at least 15 years.  I have no idea why.  I think my sister gave it to me, and I'm not going to spend it, so I just keep it in my wallet.  

Pretty exciting, huh?   What's in YOUR purse?  Link up with Katy over at Modly Chic if you want to share! 


  1. We actually carry a lot of the same things in our purses. I have an ancient $2 bill as well, but I don't carry it in my purse. I also have an ancient ipod that only plays music. :)
