National Clean Out Your Purse Day and GIVEAWAY!
When you were a little girl, how much did you want a handbag just like your mom’s? I know I did. I wanted a purse so badly. Along with putting my little preschool sized feet in heels and hoping to get a swipe of her lipstick, I wanted anything of my mom’s. Throw in a whiff of Chanel No5 and you have me right back to 1977!
A purse meant being a grownup, a lady, someone important. Grownups had wallets and check books; important stuff to carry in those purses. Not to mention packs of Wrigley’s Double Mint Gum. I would only get half a stick. We were a frugal family.
My mom passed on to me the love of a good handbag. I can never decide between a satchel, a tote, or maybe a cross-body! I love them all. A new handbag is an exciting purchase! I think I get more titillation over a new pocket book than a new pair of shoes. You heard me. I am always on the lookout for a new purse. Don’t ask how many I have!
Speaking of these bags, it never fails that they get filled to the brim with the oddest items, as well as reams of Target receipts and coupons, gum wrappers, gas station receipts and Starbucks cards. I try to keep it neat, I swear!
May 15th is National Clean Out Your Handbag Day…and it couldn’t come soon enough. I think there’s popcorn kernels in the bottom of mine from the last trip to the movies with the kids.
And just for our Bonbon Break readers, we have a giveaway for an adorable Latique tote, valued at $118 in a trendy Emerald Green. It’s roomy and convenient as well as stylish. You will love it to fit your makeup bag, phone, keys, or sippy cup and a few pacifiers! We know that’s what goes in them.
Be sure to enter by:
1) (mandatory entry) Commenting what the strangest thing you have in your handbag right now! Go look and then enter.

Good luck. Oh, and don’t forget to clean out the one you use today.
