Since having Micah two years ago, it seems that the size of my purse has grown considerably. I went from carrying a cute little purse, to toting around a big old lady bag that can hold anything from a sippy cup to a change of clothes... for the baby or Me, depending on the day. I feel like I'm looking into the Grand Canyon sometimes when I try to locate something in my bag. I open the bag, send in a search party of elves to get what I need... Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit... it's not an entire search party of elves, it's only one, but still.
An Idea of What I Carry in My Bag on Any Given Day
YES! Those ARE Garbage Pail Kids cards!!! I bought them over a year ago from a "gumball machine" (showing my age), hoping one day to share the joy that is GPK, with Micah. I tried once, unsuccessfully to turn Steven on to GPK, but he was not amused. HIS LOSS! Other not-so-cool items in my purse include... From Top L to R.... Six pack of Mentos, Baby Lips, Baby lotion, receipts, makeup bag, car USB adapter (never used), assorted make up and pain reliever, an old snot rag from God knows when, a pair of Micah's drum sticks, wallet, CoverGirl Blast flipstick, chewing gum, baby socks, assorted Qpons, Kleenex and a flask (empty of course, it was a freebie) I am sad to say that most of the stuff in my bag is not even stuff I use on a daily basis and sadly I didn't even know half of this stuff was even in my bag. I can reach into my bag looking for a piece of gum and end up pulling out a plastic toy dog. One never knows.
Wouldn't it be cool if there was something that helped you see deep down in your bag, like a light or something....
Glitzsee is a small gem shaped motion activated purse light that any woman with a huge cavernous bag should not be without. Simply turn on the Glitzsee, drop it in your purse and you're set. When you want to find something in your purse, simply give it a couple shakes and BAM! the Glitzsee light up bright as day to show you what you're looking for and stays lit for 15 seconds. I love this little thing! It is such a simple idea, but it really does make a huge difference when you're digging through your bag looking for something. Glitzsee is also great for use in kid's backpacks and I love that it has a little keyring thingy on it, so you will never lose it, as long as you can keep up with your keys, you're good. Glitzsee comes in five cool colors and is available for purchase online HERE
