Next up, Hoarders

I just cleaned my purse out and found these in its depths.

tic tac, tic tac addiction, hoarders

I may have an issue.

Or am I just super prepared?

You decide.

Your turn. What you hoard in your purse?

    Those are candy, right?

    Pens. I have a wide variety of pens. Also various hand sanitizers and two types of Altoids :)

    I found three uncashed checks and an unactivated prepaid credit card that has money on it (my SERVE card!) today. Apparently I'm a fund hoarder.

    OH! And all the receipts! Oh my goodness, they are awful. Plus at any given time I'll find multiple pairs of toddler underwear, changes of clothes for her, and snacks. The state of my bag is pretty awful.

    I'll say prepared. You never want to walk around with bad breath.

    You never know when you (or someone else) needs a Tic Tac! :)

    Receipts. Everywhere. It's embarrassing.

    pens… I have an issue I have to have tons of pens handy

    Well, issue or prepared…I don't care, those Tic Tacs helped me get through some major anxiety on Saturday!!

  11. Receipts, I collect receipts in my purse, only to be disposed off when I can no longer find my wallet :P

    Chapstick! I probably have five different tubes of it hiding in my purse right now. Different flavors make it okay, right?

  13. Kleenex and chapstick/gloss. Can't go anywhere without the 2. And the thing is, when I switch purses, I completely forget that I had that colour of chapstick left in there…or that much kleenex.

    My best friend, for my wedding, bought me something like 600 packs of tic-tacs . . . so I'm on board as saying that you're just "super prepared"

    I hoard receipts. I shove them into my purse and they live there until they swallow up my cell phone and keys. It's a problem!

    I can't believe I am writing this but Tampons, I always have about 5 with me, just in case. I carry two kinds of Altoids and at least 3 pens too (and since I became a mother there are ALWAYS fruit snacks at the bottom of my purse in case of I'm HUNGRY emergencies" but yep Tampons…*hanging head in shame* ;)

  17. Chapstick. I'm a chapstick hoarder. Throw in a few of your tic-tacs and I'll open my own kissing booth.

    What? I'm desperate.

    I seem to have ten googlety-hundred napkins with scraps of brilliant little snippets of conversation that I overhear and plan to blog about. But then I have to blow my nose or somebody spills something, and they are gone. ;-)

    AT least you have fresh breath. ;-)

  19. Pens, numerous. All the same Pilot Precise Needle Point. I'm a pen snob.

    And lip balm. Carmex. At least a few at all times.

    My purse is a disaster. I still can't believe I carried around that book and card to send you for nearly TWO WEEKS!!

    I also hoard lip gloss and Kleenex packages.

    I can't even show you my purse, it would be awful. Dirty, errant, tylenol capsules, a single sock, five lip glosses, chewed bubble gum, receipts, and as BringUpBee mentions random gift cards and checks. Also a fund hoarder.

  22. Elizabeth mommonsense.com

    Oh yes, receipts…totally guilty! Plus I end up with the random crayons from restaurants…and my girls' hair bows. I seem to stash hair bow after hair bow in my purse, but the funny thing is when I actually need a bow I can't find a single stinkin' one! How does that happen? It's like the dryer and socks!

    True Story:

    I hoard another purse inside my purse. I'm old enough to be from that school of "your bag should match your shoes" (even though I know this tip is no longer stylish, but like I said I'm old) so I have a big black purse and a smaller brown one I keep inside it to pull out when I'm wearing brown. Theoretically.

    But guess what?

    I'm even more lazy than I am unfashionable so I never take out the brown one. Which means I always carry around a two bags. Like a kangaroo.

    But less stylish.

    I haven't used my purse since Christmas because I only carry my wristlet to school in the front pocket of my lunch bag. But generally I am known to have a zillion open/used chapsticks.

    I gave up my desk at work as part of a pilot program I am heading up – as a result I am walking around with a 20+ pound backpack like a homeless person. Every weekend I make a point of cleaning it out and every weekend I realize I could have easily carried 5 less pounds a day if I wasn't such a hoarder :)

  26. My purse is awful. I have about 3 pounds of spare change in it. I hoard lipstick and lip gloss-there are at least 10-15 in my bag at any given time. Oh, and lollipops to keep my kids quiet. I actually just replaced them because the ones that were in there were pretty melted and gross.

  27. Jessica fourplusanangel.com

    Pacifiers and tissue, never know when you're going to have to wipe someone's nose or keep them quiet. ;)

  28. Kristen thepreppygirlinpink.com

    Gum! I have every flavor from mulitiple brands. I have four mouths to keep happy when we are all out and about and I need to be prepared…especially when I can smell their breath from the back seat of the car ;-)

  29. I actually have to throw away my purse due to a cookie disaster. To the best of my knowledge I put a sugar cookie covered with hot pink frosting in my purse on Wednesday…and I found it on Saturday night…other things found: 1 hot wheels dump truck, 2 hot wheels race cars, 143 receipts that need to be turned in, 2 check books, 1 debit card I lost 2 months ago, 3 blue ink pens, 2 sets of car keys, a Valentine's card with a check that needs to be deposited..and the list goes on.

    I horde nail files. I never think I have one, so I get more.

    Chap sticks and/or lip stick. I have a couple for me. I also have a pack of 5 fruity kid-friendly chap sticks b/c my child is obsessed with "her makeup". A three yr old has to look her best, right?

    You have a variety of flavors. I would say you like different flavors on different days.
