The BIGGER my handbag, the smaller my butt looks–Really?! Close, but NO Contest.

5 Nov

After reading What White Chicks Cherish: Gigantic Handbags , I am wondering what I really tote around every day and what makes it all necessary…

I must have the messiest Large black bag, ironically with a three-section organizer in Tiffany blue lining, but here goes:

  • Paycheck
  • 2 Ponytail holders
  • Jessica Simpson Aviator sunglasses
  • Receipts: AutoZone, Target, Beef O’ Bradys
  • 2 Birthday Cards, its been a month since my birthday.
  • Faux Snake Skin wallet, green
  •  Gift cards
  • Insurance cards
  • Ids
  • Change
  • Ponytail band
  • More receipts
  • Credit cards
  •  (No Cash to be found)
  • False Eyelash holder
  • Ritz Crackerfuls
  • Countertop Brochures
  • BareMinerals Catalog
  • Hair Clip
  • Ibuprofen, Vitamin C, Pepto B., Eye drops, Anti-Itch Cream (with Benadryl—because isn’t everyone allergic to something these days), and Glucose tabs
  • Glycerin Hand Therapy Lotion
  • 7 Pens
  • Lady Products
  • Vera Bradley zipper case
  • Clinique Makeup Bag
  • Pearl Necklace
  • Chanel No. 5 Perfume sample
  • 35 mm film
  • Chapstick
  • 2 Lip glosses
  •  Mascara
  • Digital camera
  • IPod
  • Lighter
  • And finally, a miniature MilkyWay

Now, I’d like for someone tell me this: what possessed me to begin thinking that I “needall of these things in my bag?! Does anyone else hear the Boy Scout mantra “always be prepared” or their mother saying, “you never know what you’re going to need” echoing through their minds?  You know of all the things I remember my mother saying that I should always carry with me, a safety-pin was number one on that list, and nary a one was to be found in my bag.

 While I think the saying goes, “the bigger the handbag, the smaller your butt looks,” it really doesn’t matter how big or small the handbag is, it’s the fact that from the time we are children, we watch our mothers parade around with beautiful bags, and as mothers, these glamorous women cannot help but carry trinkets around to pacify their children. So, it’s my thought that as we grow into womanhood, we too carry trinkets, hoping that in some way we can each satisfy the need of another.

I challenge you to think about what you carry around every day, and think about why those things are worth carrying. Tell us what you’re toting around.

Happy Shopping:)
