I Think I Need a Purse Intervention
HOW BIG SHOULD A PURSE BE?
How big is the purse you carry? I've gone from carrying a purse the size of a notebook, to a purse the size of a brown grocery bag. I didn't realize how much I can cram in a purse until I couldn't carry it when my back went out.
WHAT ARE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR PURSE RIGHT NOW?
Yesterday, I thought...what the heck is in here? Here are the items I currently have in my purse. You tell me if this sounds like a problem, or if I'm like every other Mom out there:
- A hardcover book
- A dog Leash (Not pictured)
- A dog bowl! Yes...A dog bowl
- A bag of almonds
- A BIG bottle of water...Actually I had TWO bottles of water. one for me and one for my dog over the weekend.
- Lip Gloss
- A 98.1 Sticker
- My cellphone (Not pictured)
THE CONTENTS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS
My purse used to contain:
- Extra baby clothes
- Extra baby bottles
I'VE TRIED TO GO SMALLER
So you say...Kelly..you need to downsize...but do I? Really? I still need to carry all the stuff somehow. Actually it's quite a convenient way to carry everything with me so I have it whenever I need it. My purse is actually a backpack purse, so I don't have to carry it.
I do downsize when I'm going for a walk. I carry a fanny pack including my phone, and dog poop bags. That's downsizing.
