Gift Swap

I've already had quite a few responses to participate in my gift exchange.  If you'd like to play along with us, here are the parameters:

Things I Require in My Purse
I was shopping at TJMAXX last week when a nice man approached me and asked my assistance in picking out a purse for his wife--"All she carries in it are her phone, her wallet, her keys, and a coupon book. And it needs to be black.  I want the nicest one they have."
I helped him pick out a great bag by Fossil--hope she likes it.  I think picking out a bag is a pretty personal experience, but maybe he knows her well enough that we were successful.

This got me thinking. I have a few mainstays that live in my purse, and I thought it would be fun to see what everyone else's are, so I thought it would be fun to have that be the theme of our exchange:  Two or three things that you keep in your purse.  No money limit or minimum--just try to be reasonable.

I will send you an address on February 1st.
Please send your package out by the end of the week.

There's still time to play.  Email me your address!

It should be fun!


  1. Sounds like fun, but I'm trying to get things OUT of my purse rather than add things in.


  2. i would play but i'm sure the boogey wipes....extra diapers and hand gel wouldn't be much fun to exchange hahaha

  3. I love this idea so much, I want you to do a linky party! I'd love to know what other women *require* to be in their purse. I'm sure it says so much about us! Think about it-that's all I'm sayin', just think about it.

  4. Hilarious! I hope the lady liked it. Who doesn't love a fossil though? I'm in purse crisis right now cuz I have GOT to get me a new one. I've been shopping for weeks! It needs to be black, not too heavy and no buckley thingys.

    The thing I have to have in my purse? CARMEX!

  5. Purse? I am embarrassed to say that I carry a backpack.
