Three on Thursday

This post may contain affiliate links.  

Welcome back to Three on Thursday, my weekly even though I sometimes skip weeks list of things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks, you can find those here.

What's In My Minimalist Purse

I applied minimalism to the contents of my purse right away, pretty much as soon as I decluttered my closet (which was step one for me, many years ago.)  I always hated carrying a lot of things when it made my purse get heavy and my shoulder started hurting.  But also, I was horrible at leaving my purse places when I went out at night.  It was lost and stolen so many times, I've lost count.  The number of new phones and IDs I've paid for.... shudder.  When I was in law school, my doorman at my apartment building would hold my keys at the front desk every night I went out with my best friend Meredith because I locked myself out so many times.  I've since learned to attach them to my bra strap, not to worry.  And I'm much better about keeping track of my belongings now, I swear!  Age, wisdom, and a complete ban on Jameson.

That said, I still like to keep the contents of my purse (a) essential and (b) streamlined enough to fit into a small wristlet.  Of all the purses I've lost track of, one attached to my wrist has never been among them.  I just like having my hands free in general, especially at street fests and things like that, and I've honestly been known to just stuff everything into my bra.  #GodsPockets.  Surprisingly enough, I've never done a post sharing the contents of any of my purses over the years, streamlined or not.  Which seems like a blog content staple so let's get into my very minimal and tiny purse dwellings now:

Common Sense is Not So Common

Common sense things people should know but apparently don't:

You cannot stand and block a doorway.  Say you just went through a revolving door.  You may not stop there on the other side and check your phone.  The doorway was not made just for you.  Other people are behind you in said revolving door and have no way to escape it if you're standing there in the way, other than to push you.  Which I will.  This also applies to the tops and bottoms of escalators, which to me is even more WTF because you know the people behind you can't stop and will run right into you so... why??? Why.

You always need to use your turn signals.

Dog Must Haves

Have a dog?  Thinking about adopting a dog?  You've probably figured out by now that it's much more than buying a bag of dog food and getting yearly rabies vaccines at the vet (at least, I hope you're doing those things.)  So I gathered up a list of our most used and favorite supplies lately.  Whether you're getting a new family member or just shopping around for some new things for your best bud, hopefully there's something on this list that speaks to you.  All the products listed have been tested extensively... by Hawkeye.  She says 'you're welcome.'
