The Old Switcheroo

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

If you know me, you know I love big purses.  And if you use big purses, you know one thing: they acquire lots of crap. 

So. I switched purses today, which is always a daunting task.  Depending on how much time I have dictates the extent of the purse swap: The committed purse swap vs. The this-doesn't-match-and-I’m-running-out-the-door-so-I’ll-just-grab-the-essentials switcharoo.  I inevitably hate myself for the running-out-the-door swap because of what awaits me six months later… But today, I had the time and made the committed purse swap for the Spring season.  And here’s what I found…

  • Three different store saver cards (I always fill them out for the discount…and then can never find the card again. Shocking.)
  • Three gift cards
  • 5 pens and two bottles of hand sanitizer (welcome to pediatrics)
  • Three packets of Splenda that were amazingly not degraded to the point of sugar spillage. (I always grab an extra packet when I buy coffee.)
  • Three ticket stubs to events in three different cities
  • 1 piece of gum
  • FIVE different post-it pads
  • One hotel room key
  • Business cards from two of my brothers (Where you at, Charles?)
  • A luggage claim tag
  • One of those coffee stoppers from Starbucks (genius invention, by the way…)
  • Two Blockbuster cards, one of which with my mother’s name on it
  • Two sunglass holders, yet one pair of glasses…
  • A packet of thank you cards
  • A black bracelet I took off in the middle of the Easter service when I realized I had a brown cardigan on…
  • McDonald’s Monopoly game pieces (Surprising)
  • 1 blank check
  • And 525,600 receipts from various food and clothing venues across the United States
