    Default OT - Getting to Know You QOTW 6/10

    Hi All,
    Sorry I have been MIA the past couple of days. I have been slammed! But I did want to pop on and do a QOTW before I forget.

    What's in your purse/back pack/diaper bag (basically, whatever you use to haul your stuff around )?

    Bonus question: What is one thing that is so essential to you that you simply must have with you at all times?
    -Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)

    Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.

    Make up, receipts, lotion, money, credit cards, other cards (library cards ect), gum, cough drops, keys, phone. I am sure other things too.

    I am pretty attached to my phone.

    Purse:
    -Wallet
    -Tampoons (tampons)
    -A pad or two
    -Hand sanitizer
    -Baby wipes (to wipe hands and mouths)
    -Cell phone
    -Gum


    I very much dislike a cluttery purse, and clean it out everyday at work, by throwing away unnecessary receipts and gum wrappers and what not.

    Ooooo, I have Burt's Bees Wax lip balm, too.

    My purse is overloaded. Other then the typical items, I also carry around a zip lock bag of crayons for restaraunt coloring (they only give you like 2 colors and that bothers my artsy children some reason),Obama-mints my cousin gaveme from DC during his inauguration, and a pocket knife.

    Not much I can't do without, but I love my pen from Wicked.


    Also, over the past 3 years I have coem to appreciate a good purse. A long time ago I remember a thread were we were talkign about our purses and I remember sayingthat I only had one and it was from Target and that I just didn;t get spending so much on them. Yeah, that's pretty much changed. I love coach and DH gave me the new Brighton satchel with Indian crystal motiff. It's my baby

    There's not enough space here to list purse contents

    mommytoMR.FACE you'd HATE my purse!

    gum
    wallet with credit cards, checkbook, money, punch cards, and such
    coupon pouch
    a pair of socks (evidently you never know when a bowling game is going to come up or the need will arise to try on shoes)
    a diaper
    wipes
    sippy cup
    2 bibs (one for the baby, one for the toddler)
    moist toilettes
    pocket knife
    bandaids
    floss
    toothbrush (still in the bag)
    toothpaste (I really don't know why except I haven't taken it out since my last dentist appt)
    tampons (some still sealed, some my dog played with so they are pretty much shredded)
    extra keys to lots of things that do not exist anymore
    receipts (TONS)
    hair ties
    some jewelry
    lotion
    chapstick (probably 5 things of it)
    random makeup (even though I don't wear makeup except on very rare occasions)
    pepper spray
    an extra pair of underwear (I think I put them in one day when we went swimming over the winter, but I can't be sure)
    lighter and some matches for some reason
    a cloth diaper
    dog treats
    a leash
    sunglasses
    I'm sure there are other things I'm not seeing as I dig through it, it's pretty much a disaster!

    The one thing I could not do without is my phone.

    sunglasses

    The one thing I couldn't live without is my debit card as I rarely carry cash.

    When I'm going to work I use a messenger bag, and then I carry:

    water in a non-disposable bottle
    kleenex
    book to read
    iPhone (provided by work)
    iPhone charger
    fruit salad in a tupperware container
    pen
    wallet
    keys
    iPod
    train pass, subway card, etc.

    On weekends I have a smaller version of the same bag:
    keys
    wallet
    kleenex

    I need my debit card too....although the iPhone is a close second because it covers work, leisure, boredom, communication etc.

    I keep my regular (personal) cell phone in my pocket so that's never in a bag.

    That's exactly how I pictured your purse Laurie. Right down to the fruit salad. So NYC! Though part of me thought of you as a Vera Bradley kind of gal.
