Friday Time Waster: Tell us what's in your purse



Here's a Friday time waster -- Lord knows we all need one.

While rushing around this week, I picked up a sandwich from Panera and tried to stuff the bag into my huge purse. That's when I realized -- I HAVE TOO MUCH CRAP. In a spontaneous moment, I revealed the contents of my purse in a Facebook status:

In Steph's purse: Pair of ballet flats, a banana, three reporter notebooks, 20 pages of manuscript, a CD, hairbrush, camera and charger, mascara, eyelash curler, allergy meds, day planner, turquoise necklace, black bracelet, three lipsticks, and now, lunch sandwich to go.


Someone commented that the purse contents should be a "thing," like back when everyone was posting their bra color on Facebook. If I'm not mistaken, InStyle used to do a celebrity purse feature, which I always liked reading because I am sad. Who doesn't love a little voyeurism? Check out this project by an artist who used the hidden contents of people's purses and pockets as mixed media art.

So let's go for it, readers. What's in your purse?
