What I can't leave home with out

This weekend I was “tagged” by Skippymom over at I Make Soap, to reveal what I can’t leave home with out. I'm supposed to list 5 things. Well, here’s what’s in my bag……

Phone & Wallet
Epic pen- My husband and kids are allergic to wasps! Even thought its winter, I always keep it with me.
Gum, snacks Sucker- I always have these in my bag. Works wonders for those times I need to stop at just one more place & the girls are DONE shopping. Although with them both in school now, I get most everything done during the weekdays.
Lotion & Chap stick
Tape measure-Got to make sure some of my thrift finds will fit in the car!
I know...its more then 5 But oh well :)
Just for fun, here’s all the stuff I CAN leave home with out but ended up in my bag…..

Paint can opener- I don’t know when I ever left the house and needed one ? Just ended up living in my bag when it was given to me the last time I bought paint. But if you notice, there is a bottle opener on the other end of it. Kind of funny…I guess there are times your doing a big paint job & it would be nice to open a beer when your done! Thanks Lowes store!
Toy lizard
Hello Kitty hair band
Bead bracelet from the last Brownies meeting. I love when the girls make me jewelry. You should see my collection!
And last…..My “artsy fartsy” pin. I bought this from Uglykitty for a gift but kept it for myself! Its usually pinned to my bag, but I got it caught on my coat & popped it off. Now that I’ve found it at the bottom, I’ve pinned it back on the bag : )

Now I think I’m supposed to tag 5 of you to reveal what you can’t leave home with out. If you want to play ..TAG! YOUR IT!  If you don't want to play ...thats ok too : )
Out on a priarie
The Run A Round Ranch report
A Rual Journal
The Chic Chickadee
Homemakin & Decoratin
Now I'm off to do something with this........
Stay tuned!!

I used to carry a bag -- and when I was working, good lord, I had everything in there.

Thanks for the tag and I'll post an official reply, probably on Wednesday. :)

I always find it funny what we women find in our purses.
And glad you explained what an epic pen was, for a minute there I thought I was missing out on something. LOL

OMG! I totally made a spelling mistake! It should read EPI PEN!!! I know I could fix it, but after your comment Lisa, I had to leave it! I can' stop laughing! :D

Great list! I posted mine over on thechicchickadee. You caught me a week late. I was in my local Thai restaurant last week, chatting with the owner's young daughter while I waited for my food. She wanted to see what was in my bag. We went through everything and I found the knob to my shower! I'd put it in there to remind me to get a new one from home depot. After I got and installed the new one I totally forgot about it.
