Talk About Your Purse - come on, I dare ya!

Today it's talk about your purse day. Good thing too - it was high time I cleaned out and filed all the receipts I'd been hanging on to (you know, in case I got stranded in a freak snow storm... I could light fire to them and keep my toes). This is the front:

In the pocket on the left is where I store my camera and the pocket on the right is where my phone goes. Here's the back. The zippered pocket is great for storing receipts and is big enough for, oh say a Weight Watchers Point Guide...or something.

Here is a view into the abyss. The zippered pouch in the middle is where I keep a checkbook, notebook and pocket calendar (for mileage and timekeeping). The little pocket on the right is for gum! and the one on the left is for lip gloss and a little touch up foundation. There is another zippered pocket in the back section for girl stuff, a spare pen, and extra camera batteries.

These are the big things that go inside:

My planner and absolute favorite pen - the Zebra F-402

You can't exactly tell, but the color is a nice chocolate brown with silver hardware. I clip my keys on one of the silver rings with a caribiner because I hate fishing them out from the bottom.

What does your purse look like? To see other people's bags (especially the Lazy Organizer's very cool organized purse, visit Lara's blog)

Beautiful porse. I love the planner too.

It's so lovely! I'm so proud of everyone! My bag is a total disaster! I really am organized in other areas though! I promise!

This has been fun seeing everyone's bags. I am going to get a mom bag like Lazy's and fill it with a mass of smaller organizing bags.

You said abyss, but it seems pretty organized to me!

I am in total agreement with Drama. If that is an abyss I'm a monkey's uncle.
There's no way I'm showing my 'before' purse :)

Andrea said...

That's a great purse. And I love the pen!

Thanks for your comments. Can you tell me what those tools are? I came into this whole gardening thing as a novice, and 6 years later I still don't know what I'm doing!

Jen said...

Wow, yours is so classy and intelligent looking. Nice. Thanks for showing us!

I used to use a Dooney & Bourke bag (from my sis) but it's so big, I could never find anything.

Also, my before picture would've had about 40 or more receipts, gum wrappers, grocery lists, you name it - it was in there.
