Here are several (but not all) of the purses / bags I use regularly.
I bought the smallest black one in Las Vegas and carried it all over Europe. It's the perfect little purse for vacationing and/or going to a bar. The front pocket is just big enough to hold cash or my debit card & drivers license, and the main section is just big enough for my camera. It's absolutely perfect - except for the dorky "Las Vegas" and stars embroidered on it. I keep meaning to do something about that. The one next to it is the purse I use the most - especially when going out and about. It's big enough to hold two of the following three items: my wallet, my camera, or my date book, but not all three! In fact, if I've got two of those items in there, I have to be creative getting my keys to fit in there with them. The advantages of those two bags are that they are really small & the strap is long enough to go across my chest in the classic 'don't mug me' fashion. The disadvantage is that neither of those is big enough to hold my checkbook which I still use - having not yet completely embraced the age of electronic banking.
But today I'm using the trapezoidal pink bag that Actual T made. It's by far the prettiest purse I own, and I like taking it to work. This is what is in it today:
My checkbook, four pens, my Van Gogh date book, a tissue, the novel I'm currently reading (and loving!), a pad of recycled paper, my wallet, Chapstick, gum, a cloth napkin (I was eating something on my way to work today), and my keys. Pretty basic. Of course I cleaned out all my purses yesterday. If I'd taken a picture on Friday, you would have seen a motley collection of receipts and papers ranging from Sally's vaccination certificate to my eye glasses receipt, and several gum wrappers.
I do try to keep my purses cleaned out, and only keep the bare minimum of 'stuff' in them. But my back-pack, tutoring bag, and knitting bag are another story entirely!
Anyone else want to show & tell? I love snooping in peoples purses & wallets.
