The Mama Purse - a magical space.
Does it remind you of this?
I thought it would be fun to show you what is routinely found in MY purse - a mama, artist, teacher, oiler.
Thanks to my awesome mother in law, this is the purse I am currently carrying:
Large with pockets inside and outside. Brightly colored a plus and chevrons a double plus! This purse happens to be a Vera Bradley, but lately I have been REALLY into Thirty One bags. Check out my cousin's Thirty One site here.
The cavernous purse of a mama.... a truly incredible sight!
Here's what is in my purse now:
1. Crayola Twistable Colors - I keep these in my purse for my girls. When we are at restaurants or waiting rooms, they love to color. Mommy wins, too, because the girls are occupied and being creative.
2. Home Made Peppermint Lip Balm using Young Living essential oils (stay tuned for a tutorial!)
3. Various Essential Oil Products - currently, I have home made bug spray, Tranquil and an Allergy blend that I made.
4. A travel case with 8 sample bottles of Young Living essential Oils. Remember this post?
5. Work Keys
6. Organic lollipops - my husband calls these bribery ;) We rarely get to this point, but occasionally the girls need a treat, so I keep a couple on hand. I bought these at Sprouts.
7. Green Tea Mints from Trader Joe's
8. My wallet - with a thousand receipts because I am terrible about remembering to clean it out. It's rather worn - might be time for a replacement soon! Use it up and wear it out is our motto though :)
9. Wall charger for my phone
10. Toys - Likely, this was something that Olivia walked out of the house with and handed to me before school, but I generally have something to keep the girls occupied in my purse.
11. Checkbook - who uses checks these days?? I do. Once a month for our milk co-op and rarely for school stuff.
12. Diapers - We use Honest Company diapers and we LOVE them. Have you tried them? Click my link and you can order a FREE sample - you just pay shipping. I was sold after seeing the adorable designs, the amazing packaging and reading about their quality and attention to purity and the environment.
Ok, now tell me - what is the weirdest thing in YOUR purse??
