What's in my bag

I've been tagged last week by Erica Leigh of Sweets & Hearts to post what's inside my bag. I finally had time to do it today. I took a photo of what's inside my bag and I promised myself to take a picture of the things inside it, completely unedited.

This is my favorite bag. A very old Chanel though I don't really get to use it much because I always have to tote the baby bag.

1. $141 cash. We try to always pay in cash and we are proud to say that we are debt free (except for the car of course) I also don't use a wallet or a coin purse. I really should though. I always lose a bill or two when I dig in my purse and the money falls on the floor. Heartbreaking, specially if you were about to pay something at the cash register.

2.Chuck E. Cheese tickets. I think these has been in my purse for a whole year already.

3.Americana Loyalty gold card. I don't shop much. I really don't but we were granted this card when my Mister gifted me an Anthropologie quilt on my birthday last year. You must spend at least $250 in one day to get one. And a quilt plus lunch at Katsuya was more than enough. I don't think I've spent that much again at a mall since then.

4.Free crayons from IHOP. I hate throwing crayons away. I keep thinking of students that could not afford crayons in 3rd world countries, so I always take them home so my baby can use them again and again.

5.loose change

6.My very old Benetint. I don't even know how old this is or if it's even safe to use but I use it any way. I think this is more than 3 years old! I am very pale, so a lot of red make up suits me.

7.My cap less lipstick. This one is so old too. But I love the dark red color and even if I use my finger to apply it on my lips, it always, always never fails to make me look a little better. I just love it and I can't manage to throw it out. But I know I have to replace it with a new one soon. I know it looks pathetic.

8.Chickything business cards. I made them and I don't really like them. I should really have some made by a professional very soon.

9.Authentic vintage aviators from the 80's. I recently bought this from a vintage store in L.A. that sells brand new vintage! I only got these for $8.

10.Four Alice in Wonderland theater tickets. The kids and I saw it last Saturday. My second time, their first.

11.My very old Too Faced compact. If I open this compact, it might scare you, so I won't. It's very old but it still works perfectly. I love Too faced products. You must try them. They are awesome! And their pressed powders look very natural on the face.

12.Coach mirror. I got this from a Japanese magazine for free. I love those freebies that are included in some of their fashion magazines. I always spend a long time trying to decide which magazine to get because of all the tempting freebies inside. So stressful.

13.Smart N Final receipt. I haven't been there awhile. I think this one was from December 2009

14. H & M receipt from last Saturday when I bought two shirts for my baby boy.

That took awhile. I'm glad it's over. Now I have to let Erica Leigh know that it's finally up. :)

what does these things say about me? Hmmm, I don't buy new stuff that often? What can you say?

Good night.

I am totally digging that bag.

And good for you for being debt free! I miss not being in debt. :(

I'm the same way about buying stuff. If I dont have the money in the bank, I'm not buying it! Student and car loans are enough debt to worry about!

And I like the design on your business cards! I make mine too, using the Avery snap business card paper, and I think they look professional. I would suggest trying that paper. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog! I will try that Avery paper. I only used plain card stock for this so it doesn't look like a professional business card. Thanks so much.
