I do not carry a purse or handbag by nature. Maybe it is simply because for 10 years (literally) I carried a diaper bag. So when I am alone, I don’t want to have anything on me or with me. I also like to shop, so why add to the number of bags I will be lugging around? Maybe I am just not a girly girl. I make use of my pockets… all I really carry is a bank card and my cell.
I have many purses in my closet… and I love buying them. But they are like a necklace or a bracelet… an accessory.
My mom is a small person. 5’3 and has a small frame. Tonight I weighed her purse. It weighted 7pounds 4 ounces. I do believe that is what Max weighed at birth!
So we took out all of the contents to see what my mother carries with her… daily!
2 blood sugar meters
a cell phone
a D.C. magnet
always a book or two
a single M&M
an address book
a change purse
a bus pass
and her keychains…
OK let’s talk about the key chains…
she has 4 of them… and she is a real grandma… so she collects items for the keychain to amuse children.
The key chain is a collection of:
animals that make sounds or light up (a frog, monkey, pig, duck, dolphin)
a measuring tape
a little DVD keychain with pictures.
Did I mention that this handbag weighs over 7 pounds?
Oh I forgot the section with the reciepts…too.
My brother has a “man-bag.” He swears by it. Kumar even bought one for Sanj for Christmas one year. I just found it in the basement with a bunch of other miss matched stuff when we moved.
I wish I could use a purse diligently. I did buy one today… (Sanj will be so annoyed)! But I bought it because it went with the boots I needed!
So I will keep purse-a verving! Haha.
