I spy, in no particular order:
- One wallet.
- One toddler fork and one toddler spoon.
- Six assorted pens, 1.5 pencils. Don't bother asking to borrow a writing implement, however, as I'm confident that I would never be able to find you one.
- One tape measure.
- One (me-made) brown zip pouch. Stuffed to the gills with Advil, hair ties, cosmetics, Band-aids, pens (yes- more!), feminine hygiene products, etc.
- Two eyeglass cases. Both naturally devoid of actual eyeglasses. Duh.
- One lip gloss (organic, strawberry). One Carmex click-stick. No fewer than three more lip treatments live in the aforementioned brown pouch.
- One fabric scrap.
- One pack of gum.
- One tin of ObamaMints (yes we CANdy).
- One hair tie.
- One Covergirl pressed powder compact.
Possiblyprobably broken into a million-billion pieces.
- One receipt.
- One Babies 'R Us shopping membership card. Two kids and one million "no thank you's" later, they finally convinced me to just accept the damn thing.
- Three travel-size tissue packs.
- One toddler sock, unworn. To me, this is perhaps the most perplexing item in the mix. Why? Wha? Oh- nevermind.
- Two binder clips.
- One paperclip.
- One DSW postcard advertisement with a coupon for a free tote bag. I will not redeem this, nor would I ever carry the bag even if I did. But I had to put it in there, justincase- you know?
- One notebook to record my brilliant ideas for posterity.
- A handful of panty-liners.
- A couple more panty-liners.
- Two business cards: one from small business development consultant guy and one from commercial real estate guy. I have a dream, yo.
- One atomizer of Poo-Pourri.
- One empty credit union ATM deposit envelope.
- One (possibly expired) coupon for Shredded Wheat.
- Two (absolutely expired) JoAnn sale flyers. In a true money-saving coup, I managed to get on the mailing list twice. I just laugh maniacally to myself when I hear the ladies in line ahead of me say that they signed up a few months ago, but the coupons never come... mwahaha! I have them ALL!!
- One badge from the best burger joint in the area.
- One half-eaten roll of Tums.
- One envelope full of coupons, shopping lists.
- One (relatively) small pile of garbage, dirt, crumbs.
Sadly, I did not invent a million-dollar book/game/puzzle enterprise via this exercise. I did, however, score a brand-new super cute (blue) leather handbag at the thrift store for $15. That'll have to do.
What's in your bag?
