I have been tagged, What's in your bag?

Ashley from Domestic Divas Fancy has tagged me. I am suppose to post a picture of my purse and tell you everything in it.
First I had to run out to the car to get it so I could take a picture. This is my Brighton Bag. I LOVE Brighton, I have two Brighton bags, one for summer, a straw bag, and one for winter, my black leather bag. Every now and then you might see me carrying my red Dooney, but 95% of the time I have my Brighton. The cost, $285.00. I did get it on sale. If you brought in an old purse you got 10 or 25% off, can't remember. We live in a shopping wasteland, so my mom and I drove to the Pinnacles in Arkansas. We went on a Sunday, my husband and son were off somewhere racing motocross that day. My mom and I decided to drive down while their sale was going on to see what they had. My youngest son, Nick, did not want to go. My mom paid him some outrageous price to go since I would not leave him home alone. When I say outrageous price, I'm talking like $50.00. So whatever discount we got on the purse, we paid to my son. I know, I'm a bad parent for bribing my kid, but hey it works! He rode all the way down there, sat in the store and let us shop without complaining. Well, he probably did complain once or twice, what kid wouldn't complain in a purse store, but overall, he was a pretty good sport about it.

This is what I have in it.
My wallet
a Brighton coin purse they sent me free in the mail for buying my Brighton purse ( I say free, but for $285.00 plus the bribe we paid my son, I'm sure I paid for it)
Notepad with pen (was in my Christmas stocking)
Checkbook
Daily planner
hairbrush with a pony tail holder wrapped around the handle
3 lip glosses(one of them a Buxom Lips from BE called Candi) Love this stuff
3 pens
paycheck stubs
subway card (Just got home from eating lunch with my mom, I did not put the card away, just threw it in the bottom of my purse
straw wrapper, I was too lazy to find a trash can so threw it in my purse along with my subway card.

Now I tag you! Tell us what is in your bag! Here are the rules.

Post a picture of whatever bag you are today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!

2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.

Sweet bag--I had to come over for a visit and see what was in your purse!

And, you are very organized and classy. Very impressive!

This is fun!

My purse came from Target & cost about $10.00. The items that are in it would not fit into a picture size. I just sat it (my purse) on the scale here at work and it weighs 4 pounds! Lots of stuff in it, but if I run into a hungry cat, I have some dry catfood in my purse to feed him!

I wish I had time to play along too. Crazy busy weekend, but I had to make time to hit my favorite blogs!
