Dump the contents of your purse, backpack, or briefcase on the table or bed and sort through the items. Are there things that are trash or that need to be filed? Do you really need two lipsticks or a hairbrush or are these just things that you think would be handy?
You’ve gone through different items (plastic cards, gift cards, sorting though your wallet) on other days. So, today may be more of a mid-year clean-up to sort things that have snuck back into your bag.
