Default What's in your purse..

This morning as I rummaged around in my purse for a piece of gum I realized that we ladies keep some pretty strange stuff in there. I thought it might be fun to share some of the strange contents:

Here's a few of mine:

- a banana
- an In Living Color magnet that says "Hated It" (I know some of you remember that show, hehe.. it's acutally a gag gift for my sister that I meant to mail months ago)
- a wine cork
- a whistle (no idea)

Well I downgraded to my smallish VB wallety purse, so not as much as usual. Tee-hee.

a 20 spot
a ring, wore it the other day, took it off and put it in there.
2 or 3 splenda packets (a common happening around here- huh)
keys w/key fob and my big Moosey keychain
chapstick and a lipbalm or is it gloss? I forget what one is accompanying the chapstick
Store cards
GC for B&BW and Sephora's, I *think* my Vitamin World one is in there too?
Debit cards and such
Cell phone

That my deary's is a lot to fit in this tiny ole thing... imagine how those poor keys feel being crammed in there. LOL!

Don't know about strange but rather some of the usual things...

Eye glass case
Sun glasses
Eyeglass cleaning cloth
About 3 different lipsticks
2 lip glosses
aleve & tylenol
little bag with bandaids, pads, hair pick, rubber band, tweezers, toothpicks, tampons lol
Christmas list so no one will see or find it
peppermints & gum
About 3 or 4 pens (thought I had a lot until last night at WW..this girl pulled out about 20, yikes)

Good thing I carry a back pack purse!

I think that is about it, like it's not enough
