Clean out your purse now – I am the BAG LADY

Posted on August 21, 2009


journal I found this old journal in one of my bags. It’s got entries from five years ago. Very interesting. Don’t you just love finding your old journals and reading about your innermost thoughts from back then?

Well, here’s an entry from 5/25/04 midnight:

Cleaning my bag
a dead cellphone
a hairbrush
2 lipsticks
2 band aids
3 half eaten packs of Starburst
an open pack of M&Ms spilled onto the bottom of the bag
a near empty container of tic tacs
3 pens
a coupon to Chuck E. Cheese
a set of keys
pieces of an unremembered toy
2 plastic bugs
sunglasses (mine)
sunglasses (my then 3 y.o. son J’s)
a binky in a zip loc bag
a change purse (for those trips to the vending machine)
a bouncy ball (from one of those aforementioned vending machines)
a pack of wet wipes
2 fl.oz hand sanitizer
a wallet with $4

Inspired by that entry, I took a crayon from my purse and jotted down its contents. Take note I now have two kids. It’s 5 years later, and I live in another State.

In my bag today 8/19/09:

– 6 restaurant Crayons (from one of our faves Norms and Islands )
– crushed up chex mix
-unopened fortune cookies
-grocery receipts
– a handful of nails from Adventure Playground
– a half-empty can of Aveeno sunscreen (the best!)
-2 packs of Curious George fruit snacks
-1 Clean Well hand sanitizer spray
-2 used Wild Animal park tickets
– half a pack of Fruit Stripes
– 2 stickers that say SAY NO TO PLUMPING from the OC Fair
– a kodak zi6 pocket video camera (which I won at an event drawing)
-a business card from Skin Deep (it’s right next to Gyu Kaku – and I hope to one day get a massage/facial. I can dream can’t I?)
-1 hair brush
-1 fish-shaped coin purse (filled with quarters and pennies for Downtown parking)
– pinecone
lego block
– a wallet with no money
