What's in MY Bag?

A new friend of mine, Kelli, over at Outside My Kitchen Window, tagged me for this little ditty.... and well... it looked like fun! So here we go:
Here are the rules for the tag:
1. Post a picture of whatever bag you have today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!
2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.
3. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag.


I really love purses! I own WAY too many... Just ask Andy. I don't spend a lot of money on them; I actually love finding them at thrift stores and see how CHEAP I can get them.

So, here is my purse (see the love I have for my purse? Hearts automatically appear around the purse. amazing.):

My MIL bought me this purse for Christmas. She actually gave me TWO for Christmas and I've been switching between them, since December. This purse is a Relic, and it came from Kohls, and I guarantee she got a really good deal on it! :)

And here's what's inside:

Puffs tissues, Matthew's winter hat, post-it-notes (but no pen? hmm), two sets of keys (car keys and house keys with those cards for every store known to man), lotions, little band-aid holder (I have a three year old; band-aids are VERY important!), hiding behind the pamprin, tic-tacs, tampon, wallet, coupon holder, day planner, lip gloss, sunglasses.

Here's my question. WHY do I have 5 tubes of lipgloss? WHY? And look how they are all different colors? Sad fact- I actually use them all. I really do.
As for the tagging:
If you want to do this, do it! But make sure you tell me you do. This was fun... and scary... and now everyone knows I use Pamprin and tampons. Great. :)

Dang, you got a lot of stuff in there girl. I love the hat! HA!

Kelli said...

Thanks for playing, that was fun. I left my tampon out...way to keep it real! I love the little planner that you have too. Oh and I have about 5 glosses, they are just hidden in my little carrier pouch thing.

Kat said...

That is a lot of stuff for that little purse!
And I have 4 lipgloss/lipsticks in my bag, so I totally get it. :)

Stacy said... are so brave in puttin' it all out there! I love your purse, too. Unfortunately the one I'm using right now is huge since it needs to house my laptop and work stuff that I bring home every night. Oh, and I have tons of lipstick/lipgloss in my purse, too. :)

Ahem... Why do you have to rub salt into the wound? ~smiles~

Yes... I bought a new minivan. I found it on craigslist, it works great.. but SOMETHING is off in the engine. Luckily, I work with mechanics, so I've had about 3 "doctors" in it.

I got a Chrysler Town and Country, leather interior, amazingly clean, CD player, Heat and A/C (which I haven't had in many years, with 6 kids... that is miserable.) I am soooooo happy!

But.. it's a little broken right now.. so I've got the guys looking at it.

Thanks for noticing... :)

I love getting them at thrift stores too!

You've got a lot packed into that cute little bag!! Giggles at the lipgloss - so like me. This is a fun one...I think I might actualyl do it!

Blueberry said...

cute bag....
i think that your lip gloss addiction might be worse than mine though.

Rebekah said...

I guess I think of Nik as a lost cause. Until she stops working, she says she isn't having another one. So, it's up to you and me to keep the babies coming :)

Hahaha! What is Pamprin? and who doesn't use tampons????????:-D
I have been meaning to do this for a while but I keep haveing more marking to do. I am sure you would feel better if you knew what was inside my bag. Actually, recently, there has been a whole heap of GLITTER at the bottom, ever since the box came open on the way to Kidzone (Sunday School). Will let you know if I get my act together.

I love that you have 5 tubes of lip gloss. But please tell me...which one is the best? I have been trying to find a good lip gloss and can't seem to find one I like.

Girl, after reading your post, my mom asked me to go thrift store shopping. We used to go often, but I haven't been in FOREVER!!! I thought it was so cool that she asked me to go right after I read your post! But.....the coolest part was that I found not one, but TWO purses!!!! I totally thought of you!!! :))
Have a good weekend, girl!
Love, Cissa

CissaLynn said...

Btw, I forgot to tell ya, that I only paid $5 for BOTH purses!!! AWESOME, huh?! :)
