New Series: What's in Your Handbag

Happy Wednesday everyone! 
I am excited to announce a fun new series that will be every Wednesday here on A Glimpse Inside now through the end of May. 

What you keep inside your purse can say a lot about yourself. 
It could be really organized with little trash or extra items or it could be stuffed full of EVERYTHING from old receipts to kid's toys. 
What kind of handbag do you have? 

I asked some of my bloggy friends to share a glimpse inside their handbags with all of you! 
What better way to get to know someone than getting a personal look into their purses.

 So be sure to come back every Wednesday to see inside a new blogger's purse every week! 

Today, I am giving you a glimpse into my purse. 
I will start by saying I bought my purse at Target this fall. 

Now, would you like to see what I keep inside?! 
Here ya go! 

Since my purse isn't very large, I try to keep it neat and tidy but that isn't saying it isn't full of receipts, coupons, or trash at times. 
This is what I keep in the main compartment of my purse.

1.) Small tote full of some essentials such as Advil and Tylenol. I also keep my "lady items" in here as well. And for some reason, a few fabric swatches. lol 

2.)In this small tote I keep pens, pencils, measuring tape, a mirror, and small brush.

3.) My sunglass case from The Pleated Poppy with my sunglasses from Target.

4.) Green wallet I picked up at TJ Maxx a few years ago. 

5.) Kleenex

6.) Nasal Spray- I had to have it at all times while pregnant and I just kept it in there. 
Also, I have my leftover Zofran from being pregnant as well. Never know when you aren't going to feel well when you are out and about. 

7.) Breath mints- wintergreen flavor

8.) Small notepad with pens

9.) Coupon file folder.

And of course my car keys. They usually live in the small pocket on the front of my purse with the flap. And when I am out and about, my phone hangs out in that pocket as well. 

I have a few more things in the small zipper pocket on the front of my purse. 

1.) Lip gloss and chapstick. I have to have chapstick with me at all times!! 

2.) Pack of gum

3.) Random cards- some business cards, rebate cards, Wal-greens card

4.) Small nail file

5.) Small pocket knife set

6.) Random coupon... not sure why that was in there

7.) A handful of mints from Olive Garden. lol Travis and I went to Olive Garden for his birthday the week Miss S was born and our waiter gave us a giant handful of mints and apparently I stuck them in this pocket and forgot about them! :)

So that is a glimpse inside my handbag! 
Again come back every Wednesday to get a peak into some other fabulous blogger's handbags.



  1. Oh my gosh.....I changed into another purse yesterday morning, from a LARGE to a small. You could not even guess the stuff I manage to stuff in a large purse. And with it being cold season.....vicks vaporub, acetaminophen, cough drops...and more....kind of scary, looked like I had my own pharmacy in my purse!

  2. You can definitely find some interesting things in a purse once you empty out the entire thing. I think I have a million coupons floating around in mine right now.

  3. Oh wow....your readers are in for a wild ride next week glancing into MY handbag....which is a diaper bag. Let's just say it contains about 5X more stuff in it than yours does....and surprisingly little of it has to do with diapers!


I love to receive and read your comments. It just makes my day! :)
