I don't carry a purse anymore. Got tired of trying to find things in it. My bank card, a couple of dollars are pretty much all you are going to find in my pockets. Simplify. That's my motto!

Diapers, onsies, blankies, pacifiers, wipes, vaseline, thermometer, bandaids, tylenol, nursing pads, trucks, seasame street books... yes that is my diaper bag but I don't get to carry a purse too!

Hubby and I always go shoping together so he's got the bank cards in his wallet. I think mine has one debit card, mine & Lucas' health cards, and some reminders for doctors appointments

I always carry my wallet, cell phone, and keys in my pockets. In my wallet, I carry my driver's license, a couple of credit cards, bank/debit card, student ID, auto and health insurance cards, cards for several different pet stores, Kihl's charge card, ASPCA card with emergency phone numbers, and occasionally a little bit of money.

Wallet, cell phone, hair brush, keys, aspirin, sinus medication, nail file, nail clippers (they double as scissors in a pinch), lip moisturizer, bandaids, eye glass wipes, 2 pens, and kleenex. How's that for a precise list?
post #11 of 29
I can break this down by pocket
Right front---money, lip balm
Left front---keys, tiny reading glasses, Vicks inhaler
Back right---checkbook, comb

I'm a simple kind of gal.

Most of my clothes don't have pockets, and the ones that do, the pockets aren't big enough for my keys

My purse contains (at all times):
  • medications (I put a few of each pill I take in there, in case I need them)
  • wallet (contains all my id and bankcards n' such)
  • 2 pens and a notepad
  • feminine supplies
  • small first aid kit
  • small sewing kit (had a wardrobe malfunction at school once, without a sewing kit...learned from that)
  • lighter (even though I don't smoke anymore, you don't know when you may need a lighter)
  • USB stick
  • keys and sometimes cellphone

My DH, carries a wallet in his back pocket.... keys and a multitool in his front pockets

I'm scared to look.

Money, id, pens, checkbook, cellphone, keys, tissue, otc pain med, address book, comb, stamps, lucky $2 bill, notepad, tweezers, nail clippers, mirror, brass calipers, breath spray - and I think that is all.

I carry a backpack not a purse or anything. But it's easy to find stuff because it's got pockets. Here we go:

Full side back pocket: work papers & notepad.

Left side small pocket:
- Pepper spray
- whistle
- small flashlight

Right side small pocket: Hand wipes

Inside zip pocket:
- Checkbook
- important receipts
- membership cards
- spare key to car

Left inside non-zip pocket:
- both pairs of glasses
- lipstick
- bluetooth headset

Pens in pen holder thingies.

Right inside non-zip pocket:
- Glasses case with sun-shade clips
- a knife (the kind that folds back on itself into the handle)

In the main compartment:
- My wallet

- a zip bag that holds meds,
- first aid supplies,
- toothache stuff,
- a sewing kit,
- collar stays,
- extra buttons,
- safety pins,
- feminine supplies

Other stuff in the main compartment:
- kleenex
- a larger flashlight
- a key chain with keys we don't need often but need to know where they are...
- anything else I need for the day - book(s), laptop - whatever

Front snap-close pocket:
- Fold-up brush
- calculator
- stuff you need to give someone mouth-to-mouth without touching their lips & the thing you use to open someone's throat to breathe if it has been blocked or crushed.

Cell phone goes in my left pocket and keys go in my right pocket - unless I'm in a suit - then cell goes in the inside non-zip pocket and keys get dropped into the main compartment.

...and I think that about covers it!

Edited to add: Nope. Forgot the PDA. That's thin enough it slips into the back of that inside non-zip pocket. I don't like having my phone and PDA in one device.

My wallet, credit card holder, sunglasses, keys and extra set, pen, cell phone, tissues, tic tacs and gum. I think that's about it :-)

Don't carry a purse and most days nothing but a pocket knife and hay bits are to be found in my pockets, and the tractor key. If I go somewhere (somewhere being grocery shopping, just carry keys and debit card and cell phone, everything else stays in the SUV. At home said phone hangs around my neck - found a neat case with a neck cord.

Mine has quite a bit of stuff.
Wallet (with ID, debit card, credit cards, store cards, receipts), cell phone and case, lint brush, planner, keys, hand lotion, excedrin, pen, 2 lip balms, allergy pills, vicks throat drops, mini hair brush, gum, lip oil, face powder, alcohol wipes and feminine products (in the little zipper part inside). My purse also has 2 pockets on the side, one has candy in it and the other is currently empty.

I just cleaned out my purse while I was looking at what is in it and found:
checkbook, paystub, a receipt for something I returned September 13, random papers, a bank statement, an invitation to a baby shower, a coupon for a pizza place, 2 pennies, a bunch of riccola throat drops, 5 gum wrappers and a bracelet.

I don't carry a purse, I usually just have a regular leather mens type wallet but it was coming unstitched so I just bought a womens style wallet (oriental silk) so I've just got all my cards, coins and cash in it. In my pockets I'll have my wallet (though not sure where it'll fit now that it's long), keys and cell phone with change. I do carry a tote bag to work which usually has altoids, phone, wallet, keys, change of scrubs and some change and a pencil in it.

Purse: A bunch of crumpled up receipts (), some makeup, wallet, Tylenol and various other medicines, some pens, hand sanitizer, feminine products, chapstick. And I also just found a random 3ml syringe...no idea. And a toy mouse, which I'm sure Danny thought I needed or forgot he left there.

Pockets: Cellphone, cigarettes and lighter

I carry a lot of stuff in my purse.

Wallet - drivers license, nursing license, credit/debit cards, insurance cards, checkbook (not used much anymore) and cash.

Pocket calendar for appointments and call schedule, phone numbers, etc.

Small zipper bag with powder compact, lipstick, magnifying mirror/tweezers (for removing cat hair from my contacts!) and spare contacts.

Travel tissue pack, travel size hand sanitizer, travel size hand lotion, sunglasses, pager, cellphone, dental floss (gotta have it!) small pointy scissors from a suture removal kit, very small hairbrush, a couple of pens, epi pen, inhaler, and some Imitrex.

Purse has wallet, book, puzzle book, a couple of pens, a nail file, a little notepad, lotion and lip stuff.

The book and puzzle book are for when my little lady takes her nap so I have something to do.
