#PlayInMay Inside My Purse: with Pictures!

Hey y'all!

Today is my last #PlayInMay post, since this weekend's prompt is to look back on your favorites from the month and I'm really not that into looking backwards, so I'm glad that my last post for this challenge is something a little new, and most importantly, easy.

Let's begin this little adventure by remembering that I hardly leave the house as often as I once did (yanno, like daily), so my purse needs have been condensed quite considerably.  What I'm about to show you is a fraction of the crap I used to carry, so there's that.  My purse has 3 main compartments: a front pocket, a back zipper, and the main innards.

The front pocket is where I keep my keys and an emergency e-cig that I haven't used in several months but still keep around like a safety blanket.  

The back zippered pocket isn't so fortunate.

Since it zips up, that's where I can keep stuff that consistently spills out of any other pocket and stuff that I don't necessarily want God and Country to be able to spy with a quick peek.

I have a pen problem.  I know.  It's just... you know how irritating it is when you need a pen but you can't find one, even though you KNOW you had one last week?  That is rarely a problem for me anymore.

 My main compartment contains the essentials...

Wallet, sunglasses, business card wallet, comb, emery board, lip balm, cuticle oil, a slightly dodgy pack of gum, and erm... a corkscrew.  Just in case. 

And there we have it.  The crap I find necessary to carry with me everywhere.

  1. O.M.G.
    You have just as many pens as I do in my purse!!! We must be pen soulmates. Personally, I love a classic PaperMate but if I want to feel classy, I'll grab my Waterman.

    1. LOL I love it! I used to work in office supplies, so I definitely had a chance to learn what I liked and didn't like in regards to writing instruments. Almost can't go wrong with a PaperMate, but my favorites are Pentel Hypergels.

  2. I'm also stationery obsessed. Jus' sayin'

    1. Of course you are. Because we're secretly somehow related.

  3. I know who to go to when I need a pen.

    1. And gum. I'm like Monica - I will always have gum.


I love reading your comments and reply whenever I have time. Thanks for reading and interacting with me!
