What’s hiding in YOUR bag?

“Who steals my purse steals trash; ‘tis something, nothing;”
—William Shakespeare

This month is officially dedicated to organization! With spring coming around the corner and the new incentive for the exciting March recruiting campaign, we felt discussing organization on the blog would be quite fitting. We’ll be sharing all sorts of innovative ideas this month on how to tame your messes and channel their power for good.

Whether we hide them away in basement closets or spread them across kitchen tables, messes are simply a fact of life. There isn’t a person out there who isn’t hiding some kind of mess.

Many of us even carry our messes around with us every day of our lives! This kind of mess can easily go unnoticed because it hides behind the façade of fancy purses and bags that convincingly mask the chaos lurking beneath.

But messes aren’t all bad. Just like everything in life, we believe there is something to be learned from them. So to kick off March with a bang, we went rummaging through Close To My Heart COO Brian Holman’s bag to see what we could find (and learn)!

With photographer in tow, we headed to his office, where he dumped the contents of his bag out on his desk for everyone to see. After seeing what was inside, all we have to say is if you think only women know how to pack a bag ready for anything, think again, folks.

Here’s what came tumbling out of Brian Holman’s bag:

  • 5 Great Value™ Blueberry Açai Energy Drink Mixes
  • 1 Great Value™ Pomegranate Lemonade Energy Drink Mix
  • 1 Aulani Hawaiian Sea Salt Lotion
  • 1 red pen
  • 1 black pen
  • 1 Walt Disney black pen, complete with a light on the top
  • 1 pair of headphones
  • 1 pair of earplugs
  • 1 ZEISS Pre-Moistened Lens Cleaning Wipe
  • 1 Kleenex® On-the-Go Pack
  • 1 stylus
  • 1 eye mask
  • 1 pack of batteries
  • 1 padfolio
  • 1 bag of toiletries (Band-Aids®, Advil®, antacid, etc.)
  • 1 Apple power adapter
  • 1 Amazon Kindle
  • 1 USB car charger
  • 1 Walmart receipt
  • 1 bottle of Germ-X® Pink Berry
  • 1 glasses case
  • 1 PowerPoint clicker
  • 1 pack of Tic Tac® Freshmints

After inspecting this bag that is basically a portable arsenal decked out to combat anything from low energy levels to infected hands, we’ve come to the conclusion that Brian Holman is a man who is both on the move and exceptionally prepared. “I can put any woman’s purse to shame,” touted Brian, while repacking his belongings.

So unfortunately we have to disagree with Shakespeare on this one: A purse is not nothing—it can tell you a lot more about a person than you may realize!

Think the contents of your purse are zanier than Brian’s? We’d love to see what’s lurking in your handbag. Grab your purse or bag and dump it (or just reach in and grab something random) and let us know what you find in a comment on this post!

We’ll randomly select three winners and announce them on Friday, March 6. What is the prize, you ask? Your very own small organizer! Just our little way of helping you get a jumpstart on organizing your one, spectacular life.

Let the games begin!
