    Default Mini-Challenge: Clean Out Your Purse

    With all of CJ's purse questions, I thought it was time to bust out with a purse challenge!

    Okay, for today, I want you to get out your purse (if you have a few purses you use, get them all out!) Dump the entire contents on a table and pull up a trash can. I want you to throw away all items that are not necessary: old receipts, gum wrappers, business cards, etc. You only need one working pen in your purse, so put the rest in the office area of your home (neatly please!). Anything else that you have duplicates of, choose the one you want for your purse, and put everything else away. Shake out that purse into the garbage can to get all of the little pieces of paper, dirt, and dust that can collect in a purse, and then put back ONLY the essentials. Think how much time is wasted hunting for something in your purse. If it’s clean and has only what you need, then when you need something, it will be right at your fingertips!

    If you find anything interesting, let us know! Who knows, you might just uncover some money you didn’t know you had! Wouldn’t that be great?

    I don't readily carry a purse, but I did make sure my wallet and all my coat pockets were cleaned out... LOL.. I do have purses, but I use them so rarely they don't have anything in them....

    No purse here, so...I'm done!

    Actually, I'll go clean out the bag I carry to work. I just cleaned out my coat pockets and the bag I tkae to work the other day, but I'm sure there are a couple things in there that could easily go.
