Ok. Let me be the one that has to learn by experience so that you don’t ever have to…
Sage advice: Avoid any type of liquid in your purse! Don’t do it!
In the example shown above, I brilliantly shoved my water bottle into my purse for the short jaunt from the car in the driveway to the kitchen table. Unbeknownst to me, it was not securely fastened and proceeded to dump out its entire contents all over my checkbook, IPod, important papers, gift certificates, wallet, etc. 2 days later and I am still airing out my purse on the patio to dry in the sun, and have to leave my checkbook open to a different section every couple of hours to dry it out entirely!
Let me be the one who had to deal with the inconvenience of drying every item and the heartbreak when the beautiful picture that my little Beach Rose drew me in washable marker came out of my purse as one big colorful smudge.
Don’t carry liquids in your purse. Any kind…hairspray, drinks, or even creams like sunblock or hand cream. Explosions in there are very messy and very irritating.
This is unfortunately not the 1st time this has happened to me and did I learn? Obviously no.
Do as I say, not as I do and you will be sooooo happy!
