What's in Susan's Purse

Hi all!

I’m Susan, Collin & Bryn’s 60 something mother, and the proud of owner of a purse which I purchased three years ago at a local thrift shop.

Purse contents include Advil for aches & pains, tissues for a runny nose, and lip balm for chapped lips (three must-haves for the aging population). The deck of cards is for a quick game of “War” when out and about at a restaurant with the grandkids. Breath mints and dental floss always come in handy  – particularly as pieces of food find new places to get stuck due to receding gums. I also proudly carry a gun.

Family Picture (My mom, my sisters and me!)

But check it out! My purse is devoid of PMS products and makeup. I’m off the emotional roller coaster and now dress primarily for comfort and convenience!

Feeling sorry for me at my advanced age?! Don’t bother. Life is good – no, it’s great! – as I cherish my time with family and friends and work at challenging myself physically and intellectually.

My mom

I snagged my mom a nightgown for $1.99 at Sears back in 2015! To show her thanks, she texted me this pic. Gotta love her! 😘

NOTE from Collin: Please keep the comments nice as I know many of you feel strongly about gun control. You can definitely share your opinion, but let’s be respectful of one another.

Stay tuned for more “What’s in My Purse?” posts. The whole Hip2Save team will each be taking a turn to share the little treasures inside their bags!
