    Wallet, Keys, Pen, Lotion, Chapstick, pain reliever (honestly, it’s usually Midol, haha), and bobby pins. Just a few random ones but that’s where I’ll look if I can’t find any in the bathroom. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My phone is in my pocket 85% of the time when I’m out, but it’ll be in my purse when I just need to put it somewhere I guess. Lol.

    I’ve been meaning to put a seam ripper into mine since I always seem to find scratchy tags at work.

    I carry A LOT in my purse and I only use big purses. I have my wallet, a mini lint roller, lip gloss, chapstick, a granola bar usually, a book. my keys, 1 or 2 bracelets, hair accessories, etc. My phone is usually sitting on my desk, on the passenger seat or in my hand. I get nervous about the screen getting scratched when I put it in my purse.

    I hate having to carry around a purse, so I try to get everything down to a small one that I can sling over my shoulder.   The absolute essentials if I’m going out are wallet, keys, cellphone, eyedrops (if I’m wearing contacts), but in my everyday purse I also have lip balm, a pen, changepurse (or just loose change), iPod nano, and a travel case of lactaid.

    People call me Mary Poppins because I usually have anything one could need in my purse ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m actually not a fan of huge purses so I carry: wallet, pen(s), small bottle of lotion, lip blam, lip gloss (just 1 or 2), mechanical pencil (never know when that test you forgot about will happen!), ibeprofin, small nail clippers, comb, cell phone (sometimes, usually on my desk or sitting on my car seat), lactaid. That’s it! When I go to the bar I only carry cash, debit card, ID, and phone in my pockets so I don’t forget anything haha.

    sewing kit

    crazy glue


    folding tripod for camera


    nail file

    digital voice recorder

    batteries for recorder

    and a mini-digital picture viewer so I can always have pics of the nieces & nephews, family gatherings, etc so no room for pics there ๐Ÿ™‚


    My mom jokes that I should be on “Let’s Make a Deal!”

    I have my wallet (the checkbook/credit card kind) my keys, my lip glosses (yes plural),chapstick,  some powder, ibuprofen, a pen, small bottle of lotion, hand sanitizer, my ipod, my phone (if I leave the house), and my NUMBER ONE ESSENTIAL: panty liners and tampons. I NEVER leave the house without ’em.
