This post was originally Jeff's idea. Now, I never would have thought that my purse was a problem-that is until Jeff brought it to my attention. One day he asked for something random (I forget what it was...maybe a spoon) and of course I had it in my extra large purse. We started dumping everything out and looking through all of my goods, and we found some very interesting items! I guess this is what happens when you have a suitcase for a purse.
Meet my purse. It's my favorite color and from Target. I bought it on sale for $15.00 (originally $30.00) and use it every single day.
Meet all (most) of the things inside of my purse.
You know the game that is played at bridal/baby showers where you win prizes if you have certain items in your purse? I think I would win. However I don't have tweezers in there and that is almost always one of the questions at the parties...
Anyways, you know I am a nanny when I have these items. I am learning a lot about motherhood. One of the important lessons=always have a lollipop on hand (hence the multiple wrappers).
You know I am a food blogger when I have two things of oatmeal, a grapefruit, spoon, toothpicks (whyyy do I have these?) and a bag of sugar.
Quick side note-this is my favorite instant oatmeal. I tend to use whole oats, but when in a rush this is a great choice! A little pricey since it is gluten-free, but worth it.
You know I have Raynaud's when you can find hand/feet warmers and multiple pairs of socks.
You know I'm a gym rat when you find an i-pod and old school head phones!
You know I'm a girl (pretty self explanatory when I'm carrying a purse...but you never know) when I carry multiple nail polishes, dozens of tampons, birth control pills and large sun glasses.
You know I have health issues when you find the following: b12 supplements, allergy medicine, a toothbrush, numbing medicine for when sores appear in my mouth (long story), and vitamin C throat drops.
And now you know that I steal from Red Lobster (and other restaurant chains). I admit it, I stole their sugar. At least I didn't steal their salt and pepper shakers or candle centerpiece like I have before (oops)! Please don't judge me.
You know I enjoy a good book when you find this:
So although my post is titled "time to organize," I'm not sure if I want to. Because what would I do if my toes turned blue and I needed some socks? Or if the 2 year old I nanny for needed a toy truck and lollipop to stop the tears? Or if I had a sudden urge to bake with a bag of sugar? Or if I wanted to paint my nails 3 different colors?
This is me...organized.
