Let's Get Real #2

Last week was the first in a series of new posts I'm going to be doing called Let's Get Real. In case you'd like to get caught up, you can check out that post here. Now, today I thought I'd talk a little bit about purses...


This is my purse, otherwise known as the black hole. It's the ONLY purse I use. I carry it every single day. I bought it at an estate sale for $4, I think... I don't remember but I know it was cheap. Sure I have other purses but if I choose to use a different one, that means I'd have to transfer all of my stuff. No thanks! How lazy is that? I'd rather use a purse that doesn't necessarily "match" my outfit than have to move everything.

I think I should also mention that this is my purse on a good day. The amount of useless receipts, old tissues, and miscellaneous trash that piles up inside this thing is ridiculous. I don't need to carry all of this around with me but I feel better when I do. I love having everything I might need on hand... a toothbrush, hand sanitizer, pain relievers, makeup, deodorant, candy... you know, the essentials. So, let's just say, if you ever happen to find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere with me, I've got you covered... although, you'll have to give me a second... "I can never find anything in here!"

  1. I think you have a good system going because if/when I change purses I end up leaving things behind. Then you have three different ancient chapsticks when you go back to that purse. On the plus side, I have found some cash in those other purses on switch days...

    1. Haha! I know exactly what you mean. If I ever DO switch, things get left behind and I'll eventually find a 3-year-old Tootsie Roll pop stuck to the bottom when I switch back.

  3. I don't think I've ever looked in my purse and NOT said "I can never find anything in here!" Amazing how fast those useless receipts and old tissues pile up! ;) And I'm with you on being prepared for anything.. if I can manage to dig it out of the dark depths of the bag.

    1. Haha! I just realized how bad my wallet is too. I'll find fast food receipts in there from months ago!

  4. I have a black hole bag too. But not in the magical Mary Poppins kind of way... like in the garbage bag kind of way:)

    1. I got that wallet at Target years ago. I really wish I had bought two. I'm going to be super bummed when it breaks!
