I’m not really in a “Tackling” mood today, but thanks to Tina’s post I found a project that wasn’t too overwhelming or demanding. Or so I thought!
Today’s Tackle It Tuesday project – to clean out my purse! I haven’t done this in awhile. I’ve been noticing how heavy it has gotten. Also, searching for a pen last week, I felt something sticky in there and gave up.
Dump out the contents. Woah! How did this happen? What IS that stuff??
Things I found in my purse.
Shopping lists from last month.
Reciepts from last year.
Coupons from 2008.
Scraps of paper with “notes to self”.
A tea bag had broken open and spilled it’s green, herbal contents all throughout the inside of my purse. “No, officer, that’s not what you think.” I was wondering what had happened to my last bag of Yerba Mate.
Something… sticky. I think at one point it might have been candy. It was stuck to a couple pens, some change, and an empty vitamin bottle.
Lots of loose change, pens, some lotion samples, and some “feminine products”, and a bottle of fingernail polish; Manhattan Red.
This is the stuff that is NOT going back in my purse. Some papers to be filed, a couple post cards and stickers I might use for an Inspiration board. And the plastic bag is full of all the trash… mostly old reciepts. But also something sticky and something herbal.
Pens (they all work – I checked!), Crayons for the kids, keys, chap stick, feminine projects, my wallet. The wallet has been cleaned out too… it was also full of old receipts, and a checkbook from a bank account that has been closed since 2008. The little black bag contains stuff like make-up (what little I own) travel-size lotion bottles, and medications. After all, one should never travel far without her Pamprin and Holistic Stress Relief Tablets. Especially if you have a Doomsday Purse like mine.
Ahhh, that’s better. Purse-shaped and less than 2 pounds. Now I’m almost loking forward to going grocery shopping later today.
