What's Your Bag?

I visited Peggy today from Musings By Meggie. She has such a fun post today and I just had to take her challenge. You have to post your purse. I am an addict of many admirable things, one of which is purses. I love purses! I am not a one-purse-for-years kind of person. I look at them wherever I go and desperately try to convince myself that I do not need that cute one sitting there waiting for me - to no avail!!!
So, here are the rules for your purse:

1.Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse. We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2.List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it,we'd love to hear it!
3. Tag some friends and link back to this site so people know why you're showing your stuff!

Here it is!! My purse for today, tomorrow and yesterday!!

I bought this purse just about two weeks ago at TJ Maxx for $30. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. After I bought it and took it home, I took a second look and thought maybe it was too youthful for me because of it saying "peace". But then I thought, who cares! I love it and I'm going to use it!! It's made by The Sak and is very comfy to hold.

And now for the contents . . . I'm a bit neurotic about many things (just ask my kids), but especially my purse . . . and my dresser drawers. There are certain things that have to look tidy just in case anyone peeks inside. God forbid someone thought I had a messy purse or dresser drawers!!! Besides, life is easier with everything in its place.

There is the current book I'm reading, "My Stroke of Insight", a notepad to jot down anything and everything I don't want to forget, my pen, my red wallet (a new purchase cause it just has to coordinate with the purse), my car keys, hairbrush, Brighton eyeglass case, red Brighton business card holder, Victoria's Secret spray, Bath and Body Works Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer and my camera case. Oh, and peeking out from underneath it all is a faux-Coach cosmetic bag with a nail file, lip gloss and perfume. All the vital components to be carried with me at all times.

So, how about you? Wanna share your purse?

I wonder if there is a person out there that analyses this. What does the contents of a woman's purse say about her ??

Nice purse! I could never show the contents of my purse! I carry everything except the kitchen sink! LOL

Kay said...

I love your purse. I'll do the same thing, too. See what Peggy has started?

Betty Jo said...

What an adorable blog you have. I don't think I've visited here before. I followed your link from Cindy's My Romantic Home. Love your purse! Wish mine was as neat inside as yours. ♥

I love your purse Joyce. I love just about anything I see that's made by The Sak, although I don't have one myself.

I see so many cute purses at TJ Maxx and I seem to be drawn to the ones that I judge to be too "young" for me to carry. I like your attitude better, though - if you like it, wear it!

I am a "Purseaholic" if there is such a thing? I have to have a new purse every time the wind blows..I don't normally care about designer but later I have been the Coach purses..KeyChains, Dog collar
and wallets. I have been on EBAY for hours looking for good buys. It has to be a good buy, these purses are not cheap!

As I said before I am a open book, my purse is no secret,..there are times it's over stuffed and there are times it's empty. I always carry my wallet, checkbook, hand cream, sun glasses, tylenol, address book, bandages, pens & Mentos. Various gift cards from my birthday..That's it. No secrets with me..
