What's In My Purse

Wow two posts in one day!  Actually I have been doing a mass of research for genealogy and when I got tired of that I did a mass of research for a book I am working on then when I got tired of that I went to read some blogs on my blog roll and saw this post and this post about what's in your purse so I hauled out my purse, emptied the contents across the island in our kitchen, and took a picture.  Here's what's in my purse:

  • The purse, of course, featured here.
  • A book (I always carry a book with me to kill time if I end up waiting in a casino...thus the need for a tablet as outlined in today's post).
  • A couple of kleenex
  • A small notebook from Barnes and Noble
  • My two favorite pens (a Zebra F 402 and a Pilot Precise V7)
  • A basic cell phone
  • A wallet with all of my ID, bank cards, etc in it
  • Sunglasses (it is Las Vegas after all)
  • Keys (exactly two, one to the house, one to the car)
  • And a little flowery pack that I keep a bunch of useful items in (pocket knife, thumb drive of my computer files, tampon, two bandaids, tiny flashlight, $1 in quarters, safety pin, rubber band, a wet wipe, a packet of aspirin, and floss)
What isn't pictured is the camera that I always carry with me (Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS) since I didn't have another camera handy to take a picture with.
Also, I sometimes carry a small bag of makeup in my purse but in the summer I have decided not to because it is soooo hot outside and I don't want it to melt if I happen to stay outside too long so I put my makeup on in the morning and hope it stays on all day.
What's in your purse?


  1. Your purse stash is quite minimalist! Here's mine!

  2. Great bag (I love Kipling!0. Also great layout for your bog :)

  3. I love the little floral just in case pouch!

    This is my purse:
