11 Things In Everyone's Purse We Never Remember Are Floating Around In There

We've all been there, digging around in our bags and discovering the craziest things in our purses. Why is that parking ticket from 2011 in here? How did my nephew's toy gun get in my Dior clutch? There could be an important national secret lying in the depths of your handbag, and no one would be the wiser.

However, there are a few things that we all have hiding in the depths of our purses. Things we haven't thought about or just needed for one random occasion. Looking at you useless gym membership pass. Things just seem to pile up in there. Why did we need so many coffee discount cards? Why are we still holding onto that decade-old nail polish? It's not because we want too. It's mainly because we forget it's in there.

I say it's time to do a cleanse. A deep cleaning of all of our purses. Time to clean out our clutches and our totes. Time to throw away all of those useless receipts and membership cards, and start anew. What you find in the depths of your purse might shock you, but know you aren't alone. There are all things we have forgotten in our purses. Somethings we are proud of... some not so much.

It's been in your wallet since Christmas, and yet you always forget it when you get to the coffee shop. Why does that always happen?!

3. Old Movie Tickets


How are your tickets from The Black Swan still in there??

4. Your "Clubby" Earrings


They just got so heavy around 2 AM. No one blames you for stashing them in your purse.

5. Transportation Stubs

You flew to your cousin's graduation two years ago, and the ticket is still in your zippered compartment.

6. Stain Removers

How did we forget about you? This totally could have saved that Sriracha disaster.

7. Food Wrappers

When did I eat a protein bar?

8. Condoms

For that time we were totally going to get lucky.

9. A Lighter

What? I don't smoke? What is this doing in here? Is this dangerous?

10. Weird Old Gum

Guess I didn't need to buy another pack just yet.

11. Dry Shampoo

Does it still work? Fingers crossed!
