Every spring I get a little bug in my ear to landscape the front yard, deep clean the fridge, and empty the junk drawer. What shapes up is a spring cleaning list long enough to take me well into the fall months. Life is a lot of little chores over and over again, right?
I start with this little list of tasks: 10 Things I Do To Refresh For Spring. I like to ease in before, you know, power-washing and painting the back deck.
My favorite on the Spring Refresh list is to tidy up my purse. By April, the bottom of my purse is litttered with crumbled old receipts, a few coins and for some reason, half a KitKat bar…. I dunno. Here’s how my purse purge took shape this year:
• I upgraded with these little pill cases because I got tired of forgetting my allergy medicine at home. My mom always had Tums in her purse when I was growing up and… the way I thought those were actual candy!? I Iike to keep a few in my purse for comfort.
• Because I’m me, I can’t a large wallet neat and tidy. They quickly become stuffed with receipts I don’t need tot keep a business cards but like who am I getting business cards from? I keep a few cards in a small folding wallet. My favorite part of my purse refresh is the little things I hide from myself in the side pocket: a small bag of bobby pins and hair ties, an extra bag to store jewelry I might want to remove, and a little bit of cash. The cash is the most fun to find when I’ve long forgotten about it.
• And oh course my phone nestles easily into the purse but, should I make a few Crossbody chain iphone holder chains as my summer craft?
What are the must-haves in your purse this spring? We all need to know what we should be adding to our stash! Do we need room for a water bottle? Do we need sunscreen? Let’s work on this together.
