Here's my purse after a little spring cleaning :)
Let's say... you wake up late and have to rush out the door (even for just errands)! At least I've got the essentials: facial powder, mascara, and lipgloss.
Another plus to storing these products in a separate bag is that if one decides to leak or something... it doesn't ruin the bottom of your purse!
And ironically... ANY time I go to the store, what's the first thing I look at? LIP GLOSS. Seriously, I have a problem.
"Hi. My name is Lindsay and I am addicted to lipgloss."
My "emergency" kit includes: hand sanitizer, medication, BC pills, tampones, mini-pads, a Red Lobster wet towelette (you never know!)... I'm sure I'll find items to add to it.
My headphones would ALWAYS get tangled up in my purse... especially with other items. This way, I know exactly where they are and they'll be nice and neat :)
Now this is what you see when you look in my purse! It's much better knowing where everything is!! [wallet, phone, makeup (mainly lipgloss lol), camera, "emergency" kit, pens/pencils, gum...] Oh, and for my receipts/loose paper - I keep them together with a paper clip (for now, until I find a better way to organize them). I don't like them in my wallet because they clutter it... My wallet is [surprisingly] extremely organized!!!
Now for how long this will last... we shall see. :)
