I had to buy Monkey Girl a pair of black pants for her band concert, on Thursday, and so after school, she and I headed to the Walmarts.
(No idea why, but I just love to call it “The Walmarts.”)
We picked up a few pair of black pants and she headed into the changing room, and I said, “I’ll be right across the aisle, looking at the…”
And before I finished my sentence, she muttered over her shoulder, “…wallets…I know.”
I am constantly on the search for a wallet.
Every store I go in, I spend a good fifteen minutes in the wallet section.
I don’t really know what I want in a wallet.
I go between wanting a folding wallet that will take up less space in my purse and a long wallet that might have a little more space for things like gift cards and courtesy cards, etc.
I don’t have a very large purse, so space is important, but I’m just not always sure that a folding wallet is what I want.
Right now, I have one of those long, hard case wallets, like this:
Except, mine has butterflies on it.
Because, you know, I’m 41.
For awhile, I was carrying a Vera Bradley strap wallet that was a wallet attached to a strap that went over your shoulder, so it was like a purse, except you couldn’t actually carry anything in it except for your money and credit cards, etc.
It worked really well for a long time, but I really need somewhere to carry my inhaler and my chapstick.
So, the purse I am using now is a hand-me-down Coach purse like this:
Although, I am saving up for this purse, because I haven’t had a purse that wasn’t a hand-me-down in a very, very long time:
(JBZS…if you are reading this, Monkey Girl confiscated the purse you gave me for Christmas…she says it makes her feel “sassy.”)
So, anyway, I am always on the search for a wallet.
Whenever Real Man walks into a department store or a mall, he is on the search for shoes, because he wears through his work shoes faster than Baby Monkey wears through Batman costumes.
What about you?
Is there anything you are constantly searching for, but never quite find, while shopping?
I’d love to hear about it! Let Real Man and I know that we aren’t alone!
