My Handbag...

I was over at Amanda's Blog today and was inspired to join in on showing my bag and its contents. I realized this could be a scary undertaking because I never know what will greet me when I open up my bag. I decided to go with it. Here's what I had to do...

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are (using) today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!
2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. (Whatever! Judge all you want! Purses are necessities like food and water!) And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.
3. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag.
Here is my bag. It is green, my most favorite color. It is big.
I only carry big bags, unless I'm going to something fancy which is next to never.
Any mom of young ones knows a good bag must be able to carry snacks and sippy's.
Today, I haven't planned on going anywhere so there are no snacks or sippy's in sight.
Oh, and I have to tell you how much it cost (as per the rules). It was $8.00 on clearance at Fashion Bug. Here are the complete contents of my bag...minus a few crumbs at the bottom. It was surprisingly clean. As you can see, there are various writing utensils, a smaller green bag with sanitary products, mine and K's sunglasses, various hand sanitizers and a small lotion, a cell phone holder, a make-up bag, a calculator, gloves, and my Zune. All of the essentials. :) I will highlight some of the "major" items for you. Just for fun.
my make-up bag, just in case. I really don't know why I carry all of this around, I usually only touch up my lip gloss, and the occasionaly blush.
This calculator is for grocery shopping trips to help keep me on budget.
I never leave home without it. Once, I forgot it on the kitchen table and I bought another one at the store to use. It is essential.

The Zune. I already had an MP3 player but, my brother gave me this.It stores a ton of music and videos. I always keep it in my purse to listen to my tunes in the car.
OK. So, there's my purse. Don't you feel so educated and enlightened? I'm supposed to tag others for this but, I'll just leave it open to whoever wants to do it. Follow the rules above and go to's kind of fun!
