So THAT'S why I'm lopsided...
My "right now" purse.
Purchased at Nordstrom Rack about 6 months ago for the princely sum of $56 on clearance.
I am normally too cheap to spend $56, but Blondie and I had just had 2-3 martinis. One of my best drunk shopping purchases.
Contents of purse.
Not pictured: camera which I happened to be using at the time.
Why do I carry a checkbook?
I can't remember the last time I wrote a check for anything.
And the wallet?
About 2.75# of change in there.
Total poundage = 5
Well under the 6# max, but really, who needs 5# of shit?
I have a budweiser keychain in there, for christ's sake. And 3 of the SAME lipbalms.
Today I will be cleaning her out. Maybe even retiring her for a little while.
Maurey tagged me for a meme, which I will get to later today sometime. I need to run to the store right now for lip balm and Bud.

Your spine may be twisted like a pretzel, but your lips will never be chapped. And you never know when 250 pennies might come in handy.
Heh. Your bag looks as big and overstuffed as the one my mom carries. I keep thinking she's going to develop a hunchback, too.
I have got to try those Terra Tints. A friend of mine keeps raving about hers, and you know how I love a new lip product...
I always carry my check book because stupid random places won't accept cards (like, the license center or our movie theater - get with the times, people!). And I dont' carry cash.
I usually carry lip balm (two, actually), lip stick, and gloss. They all have different purposes - I can't choose just one.
Then I have a zipper part full of stuff because I'm a nerd...my inhaler, a pack of benadryl, a few claritin, floss (that stuff is priceless - ask MacGuyver!). Seriously, dude...we have a major distaster - you want to be with me - my purse will save us all (and entertain us until my ipod dies!!!).
you're brave. i don't think i would be willing to spill the contents of my purse. for anyone.
also, half of the contents of my purse is old receipts and used napkins. no need to subject anyone to that.
You can never have enough lipbalm. I mean, what if you have to share? You know you'll share it with a friend, and then never see it again. Lipbalms are like lighters really...
I don't care how drunk I am, I wouldn't spend $56 on a purse. Mainly because I dont have $56 :)
I recognize the Chicken Poop! And the little Asian case.
That purse is great. I've limited myself in purse size, refusing to carry anything too large because of the knowledge that I will stuff it with tons of useless crap. Even the contents of my current (pretty small) purse are pretty random -- crayons, bouncy ball, and a noisemaking toy I got from my boyfriend's niece. If you opened my purse you'd think I stole it from a six-year-old.
What, no airline size bottles of Whiskey ?
I stuff a ton of crap into my pockets. I wish fanny-packs weren't so socially unacceptable, I'd rock one to carry all of my shit.
I once bought a beautiful Italian leather purse for $100. I was unemployed. It was, to date, the most unwise, fantastic purchases I've ever made. Everyone has had that "What was I thinking?!" moment. In the 80s, when we were going through some serious money troubles, my mom bought a pair of mettalic high-heels and matching clutch. Just because she needed a little glamour in her life. SHe asked me what I thought of them. Being an unaware asshole 14-year-old, I said they looked like hooker shoes. She cried for twenty minutes. Christ...What was I thinking?
Holy crap, and I thought I was bad.
Here's to being worse than me on the poundage of your purse!
I felt good for a few seconds when I looked at that, because my purse is much smaller. Then I remembered that the only reason for that is because most of the crap I haul around resides in the MONSTER ASS diaper bag I still have to tote everywhere.
Don't feel bad about the lipbalm. I have five different kinds in my purse. Plus three kinds of hand lotion. It's a sickness, I swear.
