I hadn't cleaned out my purse in years! Almost three. That's a guess based on what I pulled out of my purse. It was crammed full of junk, and was pretty useless to me that way.
Here is the pile of stuff sitting on my table. Doesn't look nice there either.
I threw most of that stuff away. Including that red planner. I haven't used my planner since 2006. I really don't know why I thought I should carry that around for so long. I threw my purse in the washer and dryer with a load of sheets and it looks and feels much better. Then I filled it up again, but hopefully in a much smarter way.
ziplock bag of wipes
clean underwear and shorts for a certain 3 year old in a ziplock bag (just in case)
3 safety pins
1 sanitary pad
immunization records (because I never know or remember when I'm going to need them)
book (because I never no when I'm going to end up waiting)
Doesn't it look nice and organized now? I'm all excited to go somewhere and open my purse and not be embarressed by the junk. My goal is to put garbage in a garbage can and not in my purse!
