You can tell a lot about a woman by the contents of her purse (especially a large purse!).
Here’s a glance inside of mine today (or any typical day):
wallet, tide pen, some receipts, my checkbook, my organizer, a bible, two books (Case for Faith by Lee Strobel and Questioning Evangelism by Randy Newman), my journal, 4 pens, a pencil, mints, a mirror, nutrigrain bar, ipod, and a blank form, and a case holding: hair ties, bobby pins, a couple lipsticks, another tide pin, a lip gloss, and two little rocks.
What does this say about me?
Wallet — You can tell by looking at it that it needs to be replaced… But I have not yet been able to let go! I got it in Vietnam 3 years ago. Inside my wallet you’ll see that all of my money is facing the same direction and is in order by value. Conclusions = I am very sentimental and slightly OCD.
Tide pen (2) — Conclusions = I spill frequently.
Receipts — Target (2) – I bought a tea kettle, a coffee grinder, and candy. Wal-Mart – I bought groceries. Lots of cheap groceries. Gas station – I put $10 of gas in my car. Conclusions = I bought wedding gifts and candy for kids for Halloween so now I must eat cheap food and put only $10 of gas in my car.
Checkbook — It’s actually in my purse so I must have just paid bills.
My organizer — I try to be organized. Sometimes it works.
A bible, two books (Case for Faith by Lee Strobel and Questioning Evangelism by Randy Newman), my journal, 4 pens, a pencil, — I follow Jesus and love his word. I want to be equipped to defend my faith and able to lead others to an understanding and intimate knowledge of Jesus Christ! If you look in my journal you’ll see that I write a LOT! So, I must have a lot to say! :o) Conclusions = I’m a nerd who loves Jesus! Who caries around all these books everywhere she goes???
Mints — I don’t want to have bad breath. Conclusions = I have decent breath. :o)
nutrigrain bar — Conclusions = I’m always on the go and may need some food to sustain me!
Ipod — Conclusions = I like music and by looking at it you can tell I like lots of types of music.
A blank form — It needs to be filled out by the Registrar. Conclusions = I haven’t had time to take it by the office yet (and maybe I’ve procrastinated slightly as well).
A mirror, and a case holding: hair ties, bobby pins, a couple lipsticks, another tide pin, a lip gloss — Conclusions = I try to look nice (at least sometimes).
What is in YOUR purse?
