10 on the 10th

Today I'm linking up with Erin over at Perfectly Port Family for her 10 on the 10th. This months is all about our purses.  No doubt, it will be a most interesting link up party.  The post topic is:
10 items in your purse right now.

First off, thought I'd show you the purse (my hubby calls it a suitcase) that I am currently using.  It's sort of like a box with handles.  I love purses that I can see into and I do not have to dig and hunt around to find things.!!!  And, it must have an outside pocket or slit for my phone.

#1. My wallet.  It is a Vera Bradley and I found this style a few years ago and I love how I can organize everything in it.  Of course, as with most things, they discontinued this wallet last year but I did manage to get a couple of extra at the outlet store to have on hand.  And, I love the VB prints!

#2,3,4 - there's lots and lots of stuff in these 3 clear little zip pouches.  I love these pouches for purse organizing and you can readily see what is in each one.  I have one with mints, hand cream, water flavoring, etc in it.  One has items like a small pair of scissors, a measuring tape, a nail file, etc. and one has band aids, aspirin, and any other emergency med I might need.  Some of my friends have referred to me as a Girl Scout - always prepared.  Without these pouches these items would be strowed throughout my purse. UGH!!!!

#5,6 - And, of course, I have my "readers" and I still like to have a pen and paper.  I like the Notes feature on my phone but guess I'll always be attached to good old fashioned pen and paper.

#7- And, this cute pink zipper bag holds all my lipstick paraphernalia.  I have 3 colors of lipstick that I wear and since I never know which one I'll be wearing, I like to keep them all with me for my daily touch ups.  I do love my lipstick!!!

#8,9 -And, of course, there's the keys and the kleenex.

#10 - I was so happy when they came out with these travel packs of Wet Ones.  Goodness, I'm forever needing one of these, either for myself or one of the Grans.  Just a great thing to have on hand.

And, I know we were suppose to stop with 10 but I had to include this guy.  This is my Kimber Pepper Blaster.  It is the super duper Daddy of pepper sprays and will shoot a stream 13 feet in 1/10 of a second.  It's none of this having to be in someone's face to spray them.  I've had mine about 5 years and both my daughter and DIL have one as well.  No, their not deadly but they sure might come in handy if you were being attacked.  They are around $40 and can be ordered off of Amazon.

So, there you have it, my 10 plus 1 items that you would find in my purse today.

  1. That was fun! I dumped out my purse and joined in.

  2. What a fun linkup today and I would not have expected any less from you than well organized, well planned contents. And some good ideas as well.

  3. What a fun post. You are like my daughter -- she carries everything, and so organized. She always is rescuing people with Tylenol or mints or a nail file etc.! I love the separate pouches that keep things organized.

  4. Ok the pepper spray is my favorite! That is awesome. I love that your pouches are see through and so much easier to look through fast. I too love a purse I can quickly open and see inside and I like an inside pocket for my phone! Thank you so much for linking up today!!! xoxo ERIN

  5. Cute purse and VERY well organized!

  6. You ARE a girl scout... from your scissors to your pepper spray. ;) I love it! And I love the color of your bag! So cute!

  7. Very organized with the essentials that we all need. Fun read!

  8. Hi Lea, Oh how I loved this post. I love being organized too and I hate having to dig in my purse for items. I have little bags and pouches for my things too. Love your purse and how tidy everything is for easy access. Thanks for sharing about the little pepper spray gun too. I don't have one but I think it's a great idea.
    Wishing you a very happy and blessed Easter! xo

  9. You could wipe out a whole gang with that pepper spray. My daughter used to work part time at Vera Bradley. We all knew the patterns by heart. So funny when my Mr. would show off and mention the pattern to a lady. Have a wonderful Easter, Lea.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
