What the World Needs...

"...is a return to sweetness and decency on the part of its young people."

It also needs a silly version of a "What's in my purse?" post. At least, that's what I decided that it needed. This, perhaps, isn't particularly silly, but it's a true story for a woman who is NOT a purse girl.



This is my purse, bought the day after Thanksgiving 2010. Chosen because red and black plaid goes with everything, obviously. And, since we all care about brand names so much, the tag inside says "American Living." Ritzy, I know.



 Some nice and friendly Tylenol and Ibuprofen, a staple in every girl's purse, I'm sure.



An L.E.I. denim wallet my younger sister gave me for Christmas when I was 12. How's that for durable? Have you ever seen a fancy wallet last ten years? And my cell-phone. Clearly not a smart phone. I hate smart phones. In the kindest way possible.



And so much money!!! This is what fell out when I dumped my purse on the floor. Tons of money. Two lipglosses, and a key. I didn't know that key was in my purse, but now that I see it, I'm pretty sure it's a spare key to my car. Awesome! Now if Angel ever locks us out again, I'll have a spare key in my purse! Whoever had the idea to put a spare key in my purse was pretty smart.

Usually, there is also a camera in my purse, but my camera is not high tech enough to take a picture of itself. There are also usually random papers with little notes to help me remember brilliant blog post ideas, but I hid them. I guess I'm a little greedy when it comes to blog post ideas. Kind of the same way I am with food....

  2. I had a wallet like that once :) I gave it to a little cousin of mine! Rachel, your post and your "non-pinterest home" remind me fully that possessions don't matter in the least bit. I can see you live your life that way and I want to live mine! You can't take anything with you, so why bother trying to impress someone? (Maybe this isn't what you are saying from your post, but thats what I'm hearing). I'm saying your amazing, because I hear the call of the supermarket and mall way to often, and consumerism it doesn't do anything for me or for the kingdom of God.

  3. haha, I'm totally greedy with food, I get it. My purses are always so full of crap and are such messes that I'm pretty impressed that you have so little in your purse.

  4. Wow you have so little in your purse! I carry around a lot since we travel so much. I have to keep wipes, hair ties,eye drops, a snack, sanitizer, and such for emergencies. But they're all really small and not too heavy so it's really not very bad carrying all that stuff.

  5. Guilty of food greed.

    I never spend more than $15 on a wallet and I use the same one for a while. I change them because I get bored, not because they crap out on me.

  6. Your purse contents look strikingly similar to mine. Less is more!!

  7. That's awesome how basic your purse is! I carry so much stuff around that I'm sure I don't need. :-)

  8. I agree that less is more! I usually have some paperwork or random notes too though. Oh, and a planner.

    Plaid goes with ANYTHING.

  12. Oh my gosh, 'tons of money' ... Your hilarious! And that is a really cute (old) wallet. I just had to replace one I had for about 9 years. It was basically just a small pouch with a zipper and the zipper broke. Actually it was my husband who pulled the zipper too vigorously and busted it, but we wont get into that. He did replace it though, but not with a pouch. So now I have to find another pouch.
