I think it is hilarious when my husband opens my purse to grab the keys and I look up to see a horrified look on his face. It cracks me up every time! Why? Because he can’t imagine how I can fit so much into one purse. hahaha! He calls my purse the “Mary Poppins bag”… but the truth is, it’s not just me! My friends are the same way! 😉 Today I am partnering with Fiber One™ to share a look into what I keep in my purse.
I asked some of the moms on my Facebook page what they keep in their purse and their answers were hilarious:
– Tweezers (you never know when someone will get a splinter!)
So I decided to show you the inside of my purse… I just dumped it right out on our patio table today. Here goes:
OK… WHERE DO I BEGIN?!
Oh… right… the rock. That might be a good place. What purse is complete without a rock or two? Don’t miss Anna & Cinderella beside her. A pencil from the kid’s doing their homework in the car. Spray hand sanitizer (I can never have enough of that). And a snack for when we are out & about. (I grab a few every morning & toss them in my purse.)
What about a half-eaten Fiber One™ bar? I keep these in my purse at all times. Treats are made to be enjoyed, not regretted! (These ones are new… I have the Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Layered Chewy Bars, and the Double Chocolate Almond Layered Chewy Bars in my purse right now… and my pantry!) I feel good about eating them & giving them to the kids because they have 28% of your daily fiber (7 grams of fiber per serving) & only 140 calories per serving. For adults, we should be getting between 25 and 34 grams of fiber depending on age, gender and calorie needs. Most of us only average about 15! Eat up! Plus these bars only have 6 grams of sugar, which is really great (trust me, I’ve been really reading labels lately.)
Why is it half-eaten? Who knows… Allie does this a lot! LOL. I think she thinks she is leaving some for me. 🙂
And the uneaten half. 🙂 LOL!! (this one is the dark chocolate).
They keep you full for a long time… yes, even a half! haha!
Next, you’ll find a toy from a restaurant. Yep… not much explaining there. I had lunch with Beau yesterday at school. I never bring lunch in, but decided that I would this time. I am also too thrifty to buy a kid’s meal anywhere (trust me), but I decided to get it for him, just this once. 🙂 He was excited… worth the extra few dollars to see him smile like that. (I gave him one of the other Fiber One™ bars as his dessert… which was actually my way of sneaking in some fiber. shhh….)
Of course, the hairbows (“Mom, my hairbow fell out.”), the books (I love those little reader books!), sunglasses, earbuds, tissues, a track from the Magic Tracks (the little yellow thing under the kid’s sunglasses), a bookmark, a nickle (Ethan found it heads up last week!) and my phone. Oh- and my wallet.
Don’t miss that green crayon hiding beside the sun glasses & under the flower bow. I can never find a pen, but ask me for a cryon and I’ve got you covered!
So…. What’s in YOUR purse? 🙂
