What Do Cars and Purses Have In Common?

They both are catch all areas and both need to be cleaned out regularly. This should be simple and something we can do quickly.

Start with your purse and dump out all of the contents. If you time yourself it should take no more than a few minutes.


Gum wrappers in the trash. Receipts in your office area. Tape measure to the garage. Loose dollar bills back in the wallet. Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters in the change jar. If you don’t have a change jar and you actually make change in stores then you’re impressive and in a minority.

Crumbs in the trash. Lip stick and gloss in the little side purse pocket. Slip cell phone in holder. Gummy bears with lint – trash. Brush or comb, pull out hair ball and through away.

Used Kleenex and expired coupons, trash. Loose keys back on correct key chain.

Now your car!

Pretty much the same routine but more physical because now you are bending over and reaching plus the items are bigger. Coffee cup in the holder, trash. Kids school paper (a place for everything and everything in its place). Pens and pencils back in the house (one in purse). Flyer left on car window, trash.

Kids shoes and socks, back in their rooms. Water bottles to the kitchen. Sports equipment  in the garage. Jackets and clothes back in their proper places.

Doesn’t that feel better?
