I dumped everything out on the dining room table to more easily sort the contents into piles.
A pile for items to toss or recycle, mostly including gum wrappers and expired coupons/insurance cards, and old grocery lists.
A pile for items that have an elsewhere to be, including keys to the office at a job I haven't had for six months.
A file pile.
A pile of things I need to take action on. I found a check to deposit, sanitizer and Advil to refill, a business card for an acupuncturist I'd like to see, a dirty spoon (ick), and stamps for Rachael Ray dishware at Albertson's that I'm pretty sure I don't need, but am still debating.
Behold! There is also a pile of things that actually belong in my purse!
They just need to be prettied up a bit and compartmentalized.
The ol' purse may not look much better to the naked eye, but it's a wonderful feeling not to be carrying the excess physical and mental weight around.
What's the most unnecessary item in your purse right now?
