The Think Write Thursday topic for May 25, 2017 is to write about the contents of your purse. Are you a minimalist? Or do you carry around a knapsack? And say, what’s in there, anyway? Tell us what you’ve got in your purse and why!Happy writing!
I love purses! For most of my adult life, I have switched up purses more than is reasonable. I think I have come to a place where I stick with one bag a bit longer but I am not a one bag only type – at least not yet. My current bag is a Namaste. I just switched back to this bag after carrying a Fossil bag since September. I needed some color in my life after a very wet and grey winter that lasted well into spring.
I like to have enough space to carry the basics but still have room for a book or perhaps a knitting project. I have this wonderful organizer that holds many necessities (lip balm, tissues, lotion, hand sanitizer, pens, store cards). And best of all, if I want to change bags, I just lift it out and move it. Sweet deal. My Sojourner is a planner, journal, and wallet. I have a mini Sojourner that hold my earbuds, tissues, and a reusable grocery bag. I like to have exterior pockets for my phone and keys (so they don’t get lost in the bottom of my bag) and a long enough strap to cross over my body leaving my hands free.
So there you have it. I am certainly not a minimalist. And, can you figure out my favorite color?
