How often do you clean out your purse?

What unusual things have you found there? I just cleaned out mine, and I found a bunch of receipts from Christmas shopping, expired coupons, and a hair tie-my hair is very short.

  • I clean mine out when I can no longer find anything anymore - like my cellphone. It drives me completely crazy when I can't find my cellphone! I usually have tons of receipts, lipsticks and change - lots and lots of change. This last time I found wax for my son's braces - I'd been looking for that for ages. Amazing the things you find.

  • About once a week because I have a small purse and I barely keep anything in there. Now, my diaper bag, that's a different story. I'm sure my 6 month old has outgrown the 0-3 month extra clothes I have in there for her.

  • I found a ketchup and jelly packet in mine LOL I work at a restaurant and the girls like to prank a little. When I laughed to them about it they said they did it over a month ago! So I basically clean it out when I get ambitious to do so

  • Maybe three times a year. I usually find a bunch of receipts, tums that fell out of the roll, gum with the wrapper off, lip balm with the cap off, loose change, and crud—lots of crud.

  • Oh my this reminds me I have to do this. I do it when my purse gets really heavy, I carry a big one, and I have founds numerous objects in there. Crackers, old gum, tic tac, very old receipts, expired coupons, I once found a peanut and butter jelly sandwich I had forgotten I had there.

  • About every 6 months. It really is nice to have a clean, organized purse.

  • I have to clean this one out every other week or so. I have a small purse and a big wallet so if I get too much extra stuff in there it all falls out when I pull out my wallet. I have a bigger one that I would love to be using, but haven't found it since we moved. )c:
