my "purse" revealed

I've long been made fun of for my non-affinity of carrying purses. It's not that I don't have them, but like with many things in my life, I get bored with them. They are annoying to carry, and I'd rather have a wallet that holds the "essentials" and use my pockets for the rest.

It also keeps me more organized (amazingly enough) because when I have a purse to keep throwing stuff into, it ultimately turns into a portable trash can. yuck. PLUS, there is another added bonus. I can't lose it! Now, you may think that my probability for losing stuff that I put in pockets is higher, and while you may be right, you've forgotten that if I only have $5 in my pocket, that's a LOT less than all I would have had in my purse!

Hey, it works for me ;) and I rarely lose anything... at least anything important...

So when I was tagged to post pictures of my purse and its contents I said hmmmmm... what shall I do? I do not have a purse... But, I did have a bag that day. So, that's what I took pictures of.

Here are the rules:

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.


Yes, that is right friends. A wal-mart bag. My usual form of transporting various items that I need for the day when I leave for work. Environmentally unfriendly? Sure. Convenience it provides for Amanda? Priceless...


The receipt with the previous day's purchases on it. Just in case any of your nosey nancy's want to zoom in and see what I was buying, you'll be glad to know there is nothing of note on there. I think there was some juicy juice and some other random food items... maybe some club soda?

The ever-present orange. Yep, almost everywhere I go, anywhere I am, you will most likely find and orange on me somewhere. What's ironic is that I rarely eat them. Not that I don't like them, but I just like to have one around in a pinch. They're very portable and clean, that's why I carry them :)

mmmmmmm... garbanzo beans. I love these things. However, they have a notsopleasant effect on my body and as a result, I must only eat them when I plan on being alone... therefore I don't eat them nearly as often as I would like ;)

Well, that's it. Sooooo exciting. I know, you guys were probably all like, ohmigoodness, Amanda posted what's in her purse?! I can't wait to see what treasures lie within... only to be disappointed.

Hence my cheesy comments throughout.

If you want to do this and bare your soul purse to the blog world, let me know you did so I can come stalk you :)

I've been waiting for this post, and oh my goodness, I am laughing so hard.

I bring an orange or an apple to work on Monday, put it on my desk and look at it all week, and then by the end of the week it ends up going in the garbage. So wasteful I know!

So glad you joined in the fun!

Totally hysterical Amanda! I too carry around fruit and never eat it. Unfortunately it is usually something soft like a pear which doesn't bode well for the contents of the bag.

Maybe the Garbanzo beans are my problem too. Good thing I'm home alone ALL DAY LONG!

How funny! You need a handbag, girl! I love the container of chickpeas!

ahem! I am actually a purse lover; however, when I find one that I really like I use it to death, hence no real variety - even though I have numerous handbags, clutches, and totes. I would respond to this blog, but I have enough writing to do for school this week so I'll just tell you why I like my purse. 1.) It has everything I need whenever I need it - usually makeup and gloss, and my wallet. 2.) I have used a Walmart bag before and it is a pain to untie if you wish to reuse it and prone to breakage if something sharp like tweezers is in it. 3.) It's so stylish and if you have one that looks like it was expensive (although I like to get them very cheap), the shopkeeps at the mall will take you more seriously and give you better service.

Ps. I have more thoughts about Walmart bags as purses but I'll save it for a summer post, when I will probably become more of an active blogger!
