friday fun day: what's in a bag?

I've always thought it was funny to display and talk about what's in your bag of choice--purse, satchel, hobo, cross-over, clutch, wallet etc. I think what we carry around in our daily life speaks volumes about ourselves. I've seen other bloggers do this, so i thought, why not me? It'll be fun!

When my cousin Stephanie was getting married, at her bridal shower, we all played a game where we (in teams) had to use whatever contents in our purses that started with each initial of her name. For example, S-and I grabbed my syringe for inflating/deflating my cuff balloon attached to my trache [we got everyone beat because who else really has an S item in their purse, unless maybe a snickers bar/snack?] lol.

So friends, let's dive into my mary poppins bag of tricks...

my red envelope clutch that is my FAVE! i bought this beauty for $.75 at a yard sale four years ago!

From L to R: pink ipod nano, bath & body works hand sanitizer, coppertone water babies spf 50 sunscreen, barnes & noble coupon, up&up tissue, syringe, saline bullet, notepad, 2 pens including that sparkly one!, clean & clear oil absorbing papers, part of a broken mirror lol, mula & coins, 3 lips products, coupons. (not pictured were the all important cards/id,store cards/emergency contact info)

I just love the travel size sunscreen, found at walmart/target for about 99 cents!
I need my burt's bees lip balm w/spf 8 to protect my lips, but do i really need 2 lipcolors? NO, but i am a girl and i need to have options! 

Oh and i should add that *sometimes, i totally carry an extra pad for those special times of the month. Not really for me because i always go potty BEFORE i leave the house for a long period of time (no pun intended) & i strongly dislike public restrooms anyways, but rather for whatever woman might need one that is with me and let me tell you, it has been needed. I like to be prepared!

So tell me, what do you carry around on the daily? Any out of the ordinary items? What are some of your must haves?

p.s. I promised a giveaway once I hit 50 gfc followers and we're almost there!! eeeeee! Thank YOU for all of your sweet, encouraging comments and for reading. I'm So glad that I decided to make my blog public months ago so that i could meet YOU, befriend you and learn about others and how really, we are all similar!

Ah love how you paid only 75 cents for you clutch, I have gotten some purses that way myself.
Don't laugh but I always have a mini tape measure and a pocket knife in my purse. :)

LOVE Burt's Bees! And I got your comment on my purse post; Moleskins are definitely the best! I can't get enough of them.
