A peek inside my purse

I was challenged by Kayren, of Everything's Coming Up Daisies, to share the contents of my purse. It can be a scary place but if you're willing, so am I!



Here is the purse - not bad from the outside.

.



Here you can see the inside of the purse. It's not too messy today - it has certainly looked worse. Now for what's in it:


.




Inside it is: a purse organizer, lotion, hand sanitizer, keys, wallet with check book, gum, sunglasses in case, keys,mints, kleenex packet (under wallet). My camera is usually in it too, but it's being used to take these pictures!

.


Now for the purse organizer. You can't believe what all fits in here. It's called a Pouchee and you can find out more about it here. I learned about this from Shortstop Sarah and have loved mine! In it is my phone, motrin,extra pen, manicure set, money, gift certificates, envelope with my check in it, pictures (that's Andy when he was about 4) cologne, and a zipper pack. I keep all those little cards in it - you know the kind businesses give you for money off, or buy 10, get the 11'th free kind of cards.


Hope you enjoyed looking in my purse. It's not too exciting is it? Now are you up to sharing yours?

Pretty neat!!! no pun intended LOL

Pat said...

You carry about the same things I do, but I also carry reading glasses for my husband. It would be too much like right for him to carry his own! LOL
I love that pouchee, I have never heard of such a thing, but it's a great idea!

Perri said...

I love it. Now to decide what color..........

The pouchee is the berries. I have to ask----Did you wash your purse before you took pictures? If you say no, then you keep a cleaner purse than I do. LOL Kae

I don't even carry a purse any more. These days, my pockets on my jeans is enough for me. One holds my cell phone while the other holds keys and card.

I do so love the colors of your purse tho...that's a very pretty one. [and I love your blog layout. It's like material...very pretty!]

Mari said...

Kae - no I didn't wash the purse, but give it some time and it will need it!

A Stone Gatherer said...

That pouchee is so COOL!!!! Oh I would love me one of those! I always look at those big purses and think they are cute, but all my stuff would be a mess at the bottom! That is so COOL!!!

Cheri said...

That pouchee is really neat. What a great tool to keep everything organized.

Brooke said...

how fun! :) since i showed off the outside yesterday, i should dive into the inside today.

Rebekah said...

Thanks for giving us a peek. I think I am going to invest in a purse organizer. I could sure use one.

Perri said...

Mari - I ordered one last night off eBay (free shipping) and have already gotten the shipping confirmation today.

I picked the denim :) So looking forward to being able to buy a purse regardless of how many pockets it has.

Thanks for sharing this.

Cherdecor said...

I enjoyed looking inside your purse this morning. I love the Pouchee!

Sandra said...

That was fun Mari, and I think we pretty much have the same kinds of things in our purse. I laughed at the sanitizer because I can't NOT have one in mine LOL

septembermom said...

You are really organized. You're inspiring me to dump out my purse and do some spring cleaning!!

Raise Them Up said...

Your purse matches your blog!!! What a riot! :) It is also so CLEAN!

If I carried a white (inside) purse, I wouldn't dare open it in front of anyone. My boys are always stuffing things inside it and you never know what kind of goodies might be lurking in the bottom (or be stuck in the bottom, for that matter).

You're fun!

Short Stop said...

Three cheers for the Pouchee. I LOVE it that we have the same one!

Your purse is so organized. Oh, mine is an absolute mess. I'm always stuffing things in it at the last minute - and mostly random stuff that doesn't belong there.

Loved this post. So fun!

Leigh of said...

You are so organized. I would be embarrassed to show mine.

Kim said...

Your purse is frighteningly clean. Where are all the empty gum wrappers and used tissues and loose aspirin that came out of the container?

That Pouchee thing looks like just what I need! My current purse is the smallest I've used in years and it has just one big open section without dividers. I'm always taking everything out to find the one thing I need. Aaargh!

Lulu said...

you reminded me that i need to get more hand sanitizer...I keep forgeting to buy some..
I like purses with compartments and zipers..Can never find a good one, i have so much junk...lol..
take care Mari..

Lynn said...

Fun post....I've been thinking more about the pouchee. Perhaps I'll have to put it on my wish list.

Debbie said...

Very, very cute purse. And I love that organizer.

Melissa said...

Cute purse...I'll have to see if I'm brave enough to show the contents of mine ;)

LuAnn said...

Cute purse - love the organizer.
Maybe I will try this.

~Just A Thought Ginger said...

Hey, you got one of those little things that Sarah posted about. I wasn't sure I would like it, but glad to hear you do.

I love that purse!!!!!

(Just so you know, I closed my blog and stopped blogging for now. I have been dealing with loads of junk again and just need a break until things settle down here with Jen. I didn't want you to think I was shutting you out for any reason. I will still be reading your posts :)

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

That pouchee is very cool! Your purse is neat and tidy. It looks a lot like mine from the top. I thought it was funny when you mentioned the zipper thing...it sounds a lot like mine that I said I keep all my little cards like that in. I'm so glad you shared!

justabeachkat said...

My purse is a mess! I can never find what I'm looking for. The Pouchee might be my answer. Love your purse...inside and out.

Hugs!
Kat

Mary said...

Mari,

You purse is very organized and I love that little pouchee. Thanks for the heads-up.

I have been busy the last couple of days. Yesterday Jordan was off school feeling a bit ill. He was clammy and feverish. Today he seemed fine. I suspect he had a flu bug.

Today I had the boys all day while their parents worked, so I haven't had much time to visit. I enjoyed your Slow Cooking Thursday. The Tangy Pork Chops sound delicious. You always give me great ideas.

Have a great Sunday.
Blessings,
Mary

Elizabeth M Thompson said...

Wow! I'm impressed your purse is so tidy. Mine is a mess right now. We've been a little too busy lately and my purse is not feeling the love. I will have to clean it out this weekend. Thanks for the reminder!

Bonnie said...

I've wondered about purse organizers ! I'm going to go have a look at the link ...

I love your purse by the way !! Great colors !!

The Curnews (Demara) said...

I LOVE your pouchee!!!

I want to get the khaki colored one, for my new bag/purse.

I'll have to do a post on it too some time...

Thanks for sharing the inside of your purse!

Growin' with it! said...

you are one brave woman!

Perri said...

I got my pouchee today. I can tell I'm gonna love it. Got it loaded and in my purse.

Tracy said...

Ok...where's you get that purse. Love it.
