Show me what your working with... (WMW)

I'm a semi-organized person, but you would never be able to tell it from looking in my purse, which happens to be a black hole of some sorts.
Want proof? Try calling me.
Even though there is a pocket on the inside of my purse just right for holstering my phone, it never goes there. So instead of answering calls promptly, I spend most of my time blindly fumbling for my ringing phone only to never find it in time.
My current purse is a nice medium size purse. It's not so big that I could pull a lamp out of it or anything but it's big enough that I can fit more than 3 sticks of gum in it. I am actually in need of a new purse, but I've had a really hard time finding one that I like. They are either too big or small, not the right color, or bedazzled a bit too much for my liking. And I need to find one that can accommodate all this:

I had a little fun on Picnik!

My must have's:

*lip gloss
*nail file
*wallet (Duh?)

Other crap that's found it's way in:

*my Clinque bonus buy collapsible hair brush w/mirror-totally more useful than I thought it would be.
*my coupon book
*a travel size Lysol. ( I bought this because our toilets used to back up at work and the smell was so awful I couldn't make it for a pee break w/o this, but I must say its come in handy in other situations as well!)
*My date book which rarely gets used past February and mostly houses old receipts and other misc. paper goods in my purse.
*Cough drops from the last cold I had
*My apron for work

What do you carry in your purse that is "out of the ordinary"? How about your "must-haves"?

Link up with us over at Working Mom Wednesday!

hahaha I have the exact same problem with finding my phone in my purse - even though I usually put it in the same pocket every time!! I think purses are black holes too!

Love your purse, and I'm impressed with the labels. This was a really fun prompt.

Happy WMW (sorry I'm late)!
