Ten Random Things To Always Carry In Your Purse.

Postby HaileyEdge on Sat Feb 18, 2006 11:50 pm

1-50 Medium Saftey Pins
3-Pen + Paper
4-Ibuprobafen (Advil)
5-Sharpie Permanent Markers
7-Needle + Thread
8-Q Tips
10-Duct Tape

HAHAH I was going through my purse and thought I'd name the top 10 random things that were in there. They come in so useful!!! Although tonight I was at a show and my really good friend who was on stage yelled at me and asked for a pair of nail clippers because his nail was falling off from playing guitar, maybe I should start bringing nail clippers with me everywhere!!

Haha me too, the bandaids especially because my skin rips easily (I know it doesn't sound plesent but it rips easily...) And I am a germapobe too, when I heard the song 'germfree adolescents' by the xray spex I was like HEY ITS ME. Because you always need to be 99.9 percent gerrrmmmm free with hand sanitizor!!

Fresh & Go toothbrush (remember, i have braces!)
Mini pack tissues
Wetwipes travel pack or sanitizing gel
Mini tube of lubriderm
Brush/mirror (mine's all in one)
Then I have a tiny pencil case with:
Nail file (I like the hard crystal ones)
Perfume in a sampler tube

Sounds like a lot, but it all fits nicely in a small shoulder bag...

phone smokes wallet ID

Thats my checklist in my head i always go through before i go out. dont need safety pins cause i've got one in my ear (piercing) and usually tones on my clothes because they're falling apart. thats about it hey.

oh and in one pocket ive got throat lozenges for when im jamming/got a gig, my asthma puffer, spare film, and film i havent developed.

i need room in my bag to pinch glasses or sneak booze into pubs.

I :heart: hand bags!
I have about 3 i rotate between and in each of them i have a stash of the typical: Tampons, Bobby Pins, rubber hair tie, small lotion, band aids, antibacteria gel, chapstick, $5 cash (just in case), pen & ear plugs.
But i still have to grab my Credit Card, ID, Inhaler,& phone when i go between them.

The only odd thing i carry around is an envelope to put all my receipts in. I'm a gal who likes to budget and save money so i always carry it until the end of the month, then a new envelope gets put into roation, and the old ones get analyzed and put into the Bigger envelope for the year.
