    I purposely make my purses small so I don’t carry around too much. I mainly do that because I “lose” my phone and keys all the time in my purse… even when I only have three things in it. Ugh! At this point I have small wallet, keys, cell phone, small lotion (I started carrying that around b/c my hands got ashy every time I washed my hands… and then people would want to see my ring… I hate my hands looking gross), pen, chapstick and that’s all at the moment. πŸ™‚

    I hate carrying purses so I fit everything into a wristlet – ID, credit card, phone, chapstick, keys. I have a valet key chain so I only pack the one I need – door key, car key, laser pointer/flashlight, flash drive. My essentials!

    If I’m using a small purse, just wallet, keys, cell phone. I guess I should clarify that there are always bandaids, bobby pins and a pen in my wallet.

    If I’m using a big purse, all of the above, plus hand sanitizer, sunglasses, a bottle of mixed pills (tylenol, aleve, advil), mini tissue packet, ipod, gum, tampons, granola bar and/or fruit snacks.

    I feel like I’m missing something, but those are my normal standard stuff.

    I have a bunch of tissues in mine, hand cleaner, lotion, a ton of lip gloss, keys, wallet, and enough makeup that I could spontaneously be ready for any scenario, whether it’s clubbing or a job interview, lol. I always carry at least one travel palette, eye primer, and mascara.

    Gotta love ladies and their purses!

    I generally carry the obvious choices of cell phone, wallet, ipod, chapstick, pen, painkillers, keys, tampons and headphones.

    When I’m staying with Fiance I also generally have a little roll of doggy poop bags for when I walk the pup.

    Also, I generall have a hockey ticket stub or two floating around – my family has NHL season tickets, so I go to a lot of games.  πŸ™‚

    In my purse you’ll find: wallet, keys, cell phone, hand lotion, glasses, sunglasses, tissue, gum, sanitizer, pens, small notebook, tampons, about 6 lip balms/glosses, mascara, ipod, ibuprofen, headband, and bandaids. I really like to downsize my purse when it starts to get warm out, but I don’t know how I’ll do that!

    You know the junk drawer everyone has? That’s what my purse looks like.

    Pens/markers for work; keys, wallet, phone; lip balm, hand cream, tampons/panty liners, mini notepad. The mail, receipts, change and the occasional odd small tool like a mini screwdriver or pocketknife are where the junk come in. Usually something SO has given me to hold on to, lol.
