The Amazingly Endless Contents of a New Mom’s Purse

This weekend I was searching for something in the deep abyss that is my purse. I stuck my hand in and started sorting through all of the contents to find what I was looking for. Instead of feeling the soft fabric that lines the bottom of my purse, I felt a mound of Cheerios. So is the life of a mom!

I decided it was time to clean my purse out and I had to laugh at all of the contents in my bag. I thought it would be fun to share.


You don’t even want to know all of the things that I carried in my purse when our little one was actually a baby! Now that she’s one year old, I don’t have to carry around as much stuff. Let’s take a closer look.

Purse 005

Here we have wipes, butt paste, 4 diapers, a packet of baby food, three emergency snacks to avoid a toddler meltdown in public, Xanax to avoid a mommy meltdown (thanks to PPD), an inhaler, cell phone charger, and Bluetooth.

Purse 006

And here we have a measuring spoon, baby toy, another baby toy, wet bag, sunglasses, regular glasses, bib, sippy cup, container with snacks, one pacifier (who knows where the other 5 are), baby keys, a case I keep my wallet in, gum, mints, and two baby hair bows.

Purse 004

The diaper case, iPod case and iPod charger (who knows where my iPod is?).

Purse 003

Additional items shown here are my wallet, keys, various coupons & receipts, and a lipstick style pepper spray that my husband insists that I carry.

Purse 002

And last but not least we have lotion, pill bottle, ibuprofen in a small baggy, two peppermints, a pen, Tums, Bandaids, tampons, pads, eyebrow pencil, makeup sample, lip balm, a small hair band, mirror, and a wristlet.

After I put all of the contents back in my purse I found a pack of Kleenex that I would probably never find if I needed them.

I challenge you to post what’s in your purse!


  1. If you want to totally freak out, read what Marie Kondo does with her purse every. single. day.

    1. Haha! I read her book recently, and I was like, "Um, no way would I EVER do that!" I don't care how organized I am, I'm never going to be someone who cleans out her purse every single day.

  2. This is awesome!! :) Maybe I'll do mine :)

  3. Ooh, I'll have to do this--I recently switch from a tiny little clutch-style purse to my big "you need it? Mom's got it!" purse. It doesn't take long to accumulate all kinds of kid crap in it :)

  4. Holy moly! That's a lotta mom and baby stuff. I'm a pretty big minimalist so I only carry my wallet, phone, chapstick/lipgloss, diapers, onesie, burp cloth, pacifiers, nursing cover, keys, and I think that's it! Oh and a few books and a teething ring just in case Dean decides to start popping teeth out when we're at a restaurant, LOL.
