Look What I Found!

Today I had the brilliant idea that I should clean out all of my bags. I have a laundry basket full of bags, many that I do not use regularly. I was looking for an Alice gift card (click for a referral link) that I knew had twenty something dollars left on it, but instead of finding that gift card, I found all of this stuff:


1 bottle of nail polish, 6 cotton swabs, 2 nail files, 1 wood cuticle pusher, 4 elastic bands, 1 barrette, 11 bobby pins, 1 tube of mascara, 4 lip glosses, 1 hand sanitizer, 2 chapsticks, 2 band-aids, 2 cough drops, 1 face cream, 5 tampons


1 packet of Splenda, 2 pieces of candy, 1 bookmark made at camp, 50 cents in change, 1 stack of napkins, 1 Tide to go, 1 moist towelette, 2 matchbooks, 2 pairs of ipod headphones, 4 gift cards/certificates with balances, 1 CD (New Moon soundtrack)


4 pads of Post-It notes, 19 pens, 7 pencils, 4 batteries, 11 paperclips

I also found countless receipts and 12 pay stubs. Clearly I need to clean out my bags before I put them in my basket. I can't get over the number of writing utensils. Hilarious!

  5. Amazing. Sort of like the time I cleaned my car out in college & found... um, like, EVERYTHING. Entire outfits & $40 & all KINDS of stuff - not dirty, just full of stuff! Don't judge me, I commuted that year, so I practically lived in my car...

    Congrats on all your "new" loot! :)

  7. This is amazing. I have crap in EVERY purse I have ... someday I will dump out everything and take a photo and it will likely be the most embarrassing thing EVER. I probably have 100,000 receipts and a whole bunch of other crap and trash in my purses. Just terrible!

  9. I think I may have this many pens in just my purse. I think I may take my third snow day tomorrow and clean out my purse :)

  10. I've been lurking for a little while, but this made me laugh too much--I had to comment. I have a giant tupperware box I bought specifically for all my bags. I cleaned them out a few weeks ago and found (among other things) a friend's iPod nano. 19 pens, though...that has to be some kind of record.

  21. Heyy! Just found your blog, and love it! Seeing all the stuff you found... I should probably go through my stuff I happen to be missing a few things that I am sure i'd be able to find with a little bag emptying.
