I can remember when my purse held only personal things, like a wallet, keys and a phone. Now, it is my family's catchall. It keeps the kids entertained, heals boo-boos, and serves as a waste management system. My purse has become a great big old Mama Bag, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

Top Ten Most Random Things in my Mama Bag

(1) Free kiddie sunglasses from the aquarium.
(2) Packs of cards from a Chikfila kids meal.
(3) A reusable grocery bag from Gorgeously Green.
(4) Hairspray - which is really hilarious since I probably haven't used that tiny can since prom.
(5) Receipts.

(6) A toy wrench. ('Cause that comes in handy!)
(7) A travel pack of band aids.
(8) Trash.
(9) A gas card with $2.00 left on it.
(10) A race car.

What is the most random thing in your Mama Bag?

    So i have blog called thethingsiamadeof...and it all started because of my grandma's purse. I can recall like it was yesterday, sitting next to her in church playing with her little mirror that slipped into a plastic sleeve, and smelling her roll of life savers..those moments are the things I am made of! I can still smell the mix of the mints and church smell and her perfume. I can hear her praying and singing. That mama bag is a powerful thing!

    As for my own mama is pretty much like yours! Only crazy me keeps my engagement ring in there, too...
