Monday Listicles

Hello February!

Big welcome to new NFL champions and the pink and red invasion that is Valentine’s. To longer days and promise of spring. And to my friends who wrote a list and came over to share it. HI!!!

This week we are sharing what is in our handbag. Don’t blame me, it was Ducky’s idea. I never use my purse, it is permanently stuck on the back seat of my van. So I brought it in the house and emptied it. I found exactly 10 things inside. Hope your lists are more entertaining then mine.

Before I tell you all about next week’s topic I wanted to say thank you to Wendy who suggested the topic for listicles last week and you all for sharing what you wished to become when you were growing up. That was fun, right?

Since next listicles fall on Monday before Valentine’s I thought we should do a list of 10 “OH NO YOU DIDN’T” GIFTS. Make it easy on our partners. Kinda like a friendly guide of what not to give your Valentine. See, not only are Listicles fun and educational, they keep your relationship a happy one. Not related to testicles…

OK, show me what you log around!

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Wallet

2. Perfume

3. Sun screen

4. Phone lens

5. Lip glosses

6. Hair bands

7. Foldable shopping bag

8. Make up pouch (with more lip glosses)

9. Organizer

10. George from Peppa Pig ( who used to entertain Little J when he was fussing as a toddler. Shows when was the last time I cleaned out my bag).

PS I never actually wear lip gloss!

    After seeing the tidy contents of your bag spread out so nicely, I am even more ashamed of my diaper bag! 😉

    I am amazed that you only had 10 things in your purse. I have lip gloss in my purse, too, but rarely put it on when I am out.

    sorry I missed ya last week – the day kinda got away from me
    But I am back…and slightly shamefaced that you actually only have 10 items in your purse. your 1 purse. I have 3…and they are all a nightmare. I choose the least scary one….spoiler: there’s a scrunchie!! eeek!

    Funny how you just don’t use a purse for a while. I didn’t for at least a year when we were using a diaper bag. Eventually, I stopped needing to bring quite so much stuff around with us & went back to my own purse.

    I actually had 3 lip glosses and 1 lipstick but since we were only doing 10 things I didn’t mention them all : )

    I carry 5 lipsticks/glosses at all times. I probably only wear lipstick once a month. Weird.

    I love your bag!

    I dare not empty my purse. I fear 5 out of 10 things will be a mixed variety of crumbs.

    Your bag sounds so tidy actually. My bag is filled with so much random stuff, I would be too embarrassed to even clean it out right about now.

    What is it about lipstick/lipgloss? Everyone has it in their purse and hardly anyone uses it… what is with the collective craziness we’ve got going on?! Also, you’re so orderly it’s almost annoying, but I’m speaking from a place of great envy!

    My what a neat purse you have! You have what you call a Model Purse. You know like a Model Home that no one really lives in so it always looks nice.

    Firstly, dang that is a clean purse. Secondly, I would have never pegged you as a lip gloss hoarder. :) Ellen

    I’m with you, Stasha. I rarely carry a purse, but I still dug one out of the closet to share what’s inside. :)

    I’m really shocked that I didn’t find any hair band in mine because they are all over my house and in my car! Maybe I should look again.

    I’m really envious that you have such an organized bag! I lose lip gloss too much to even pretend I own any, much less carry it around!

    Your bag is way too tidy. (empty) I have so much crammed in mine, I just have to pick 10 to post. :) This is my first time joining Monday Listicles. Thanks for hosting.

    If you don’t actually carry your purse, does that mean you’re a pocket kinda girl? Or bra? I mean, one must have a debit card and keys to carry at least, right? And what about latte money??

      Car keys in my pocket, purse locked in the car. Starbucks app for paying the coffee at drive thru. Always without ID on me for which I know my husband would kill me if he knew.but I figure as long as I have my phone on me, I can find a way to be identified…

    Sunscreen. Such the good girl you are. And I need a little lip gloss — you can throw some my way.

    Totally love this Listicle! I don’t keep lipgloss anywhere but in the car now. I’m not gonna wear it at home, but if I find myself somewhere with a completely makeupless face (and it should not be), then I bust into my stash of car lipgloss for minimal help. And I don’t lose as many this way!

    I’ve switched to a tiny bag with just my wallet, a pack of tissues and some lipglosses/lipbalms… so much easier than always lugging around a huge bag! :)
