Isabel posted a cool entry today detailing the contents of her purse, and I figured it would be fun to play along.
Here's my purse:
It's a woven bag, allegedly a native handicraft from Ecuador or Guatemala. I don't know how indigenous it really is, but a vendor who always sells swag at the Native American arts festival at the historic site I worked at in 2004 sold them. I'd seen them around (I'm guessing lots of hippie shops also sell them) and I really wanted one, so MB bought me one. I've used it ever since and I love it.
Now for the contents:
A: My mp3 player in an old cell phone case. MB attached a ribbon and a carabiner to the mp3 player so I can clip it onto my clothes somewhere when I don't have any pockets. It works great to hang it from my pajama top when I'm lounging around listening to music and reading at night :)
B: Hairband. Necessary in case of sudden barrette failure, as I cannot stand to have my hair in my face while I'm working.
C: Coin purse with a kickass holographic comic book-style design. It used to belong to a girl that I worked with at my high school job at the ice cream shop, and I'd play with it whenever she got it out to buy something. When I started college and switched to only working weekends, she gave it to me as a semi-going-away present. It still reminds me of the good times we had at the store.
D: Buckeye nut for luck *.
E: Tiny compact-style mirror with a Care Bear sticker that I put on the front to cover up a sticky spot from the price tag. I got it at a thrift store for 25 cents.
F: Fuzzy zipper pouch where I keep all the bargain club cards and punch cards and random whatever cards that I can't fit in my wallet anymore.
G: One of three pens.
H: Bank receipt and expired car insurance card (don't worry, I have a non-expired one in my wallet).
I: Hot Topic gift card that MB gave me for Christmas.
J: Notebook for writing down books I hear about and want to read, cool quotes I come across, etc. I actually use it all the time.
K: My phone, clearly.
L: Burt's Bees milk & honey lotion, the best lotion in the whole wide world.
M: My wallet. I bought it for 50 cents on clearance at Gadzooks in high school, and I've been using it ever since.
Anybody else want to play? Link me in the comments so I can see your purse loot!
I'm an unrepentant science nerd. I talk too much, read voraciously, and have mostly given up swearing. I have degrees in geology and creative writing, but my job doesn't have too much to do with either. I'm married to MB, the greatest guy on the whole entire planet. We're doing our best to raise a good dog (adopted April 2008) and happy kids (born January 2010 and February 2013). It's not always easy, but together we're finding our way.
