And this is why you should clean out your purse….

My purse is my catch-all, my mobile office, my home-away-from-home.  Mary Poppins has nothing on me!  My purse can and does hold anything and everything you could ever need.

In other words, my purse is a mess full of hoarded treasures, baby supplies, paperwork, and anything else that makes its way into the black abyss.

Yesterday I gave it a good clean out and look what I found!

Ready for travel? I don't think I'd have gotten very far on $20 and a passport.

 $20 and my passport!

The $20 was much appreciated… I’ll put it to good use (or blow it on a dinner out… whatever… you say po-tay-to, I say po-tah-to!).

Finding the passport was less thrilling. In fact, it made me pause.  It’s been in there for several weeks.  In fact, I had forgotten it was even there.  What would have happened had it fallen out and been lost.  Or worse, what if my purse had been stolen?  I wouldn’t have even realized it was missing until it was too late.

Needless to say, I learned a good lesson, and thankfully before anything bad happened.  I need to be a lot more careful about what I keep in the purse, and I need to be more diligent about keeping it clean and organized.  (And yes, the passport is now safely stored in its proper location.)

Humbly yours,

P.S. I found another treasure in my purse, but you’ll have to hop on over to Facebook to find out what it is.
