    In my current bag is merely my purse, chequebook (yes, I still have one!), my locker keys, and a vintage leather driver's license and insurance holder (Engraved with "Safe Drive Safe Arrive", a picture of the devil-supposedly a Lucky Devil, and the message "Pass Friend, Hell's Only Half Full". It belonged to my Mom.) There's also a few loose coins that fell out of my purse and one or two till slips.

    Now, I have a bad habit in that, when I get a new bag, I just transfer the abovementioned essentials to it, and leave the rest of the accumulated junk behind. I have absolutely no idea what's in the "old" bags, and I have no intention of going to find out.

    If I stick my hand into one of them something might take it off....

    my wallet -- driver's license, owner's card, library card,insurance card, rx insurance card, cvs loyalty card, benny insurance card, store credit cards,bank credit cards, checkbook, debit card, atm card, pen, tiny notepad, some change, $18.00 in cash, plus an emergency $100 bill which is so old it's almost in the three pieces it's folded into, aaa card,

    my purse -- wallet, pocket pack of kleenex, pen, sunglasses in season, lifesavers and mints, a lemon mini-sized luna bar, some dog and cat treats in a baggie, spare key ring with back door key, two car keys, some change and a $5.00 bill, baggie of assorted tea bags (because most restaurant teabags make tea that tastes like pencil shavings), tylenol and imodium, tiny bottle of my perfume, a paperback, travel pack of baby wipes, receipts, refillable size hand sanitizer, clinique lip mousturizer, shout spot and stain removal wipes (these are terrific and get almost any stain but spaghetti sauce out).

    my husband snickers at my keyring. (he's a b-a-d boy!) it's an engraved gold heart on a gold ring. on it, i have a mini pink swiss army-type knife from ll bean that santa brought me when i was in college, customer loyalty cards from five grocery stores, pet smart, petco, a gas station, keys to three of our four outside doors, car keys, keys to three neighbors' doors, and an elderly aunt's front door.

    My mess consists of my wallet, various receipts, Bert's Bees pomegranate lip balm, various pens-most of which don't work, Altoids, and unidentifiable fuzz on the very bottom.

    What a funny topic of conversation! When we were at Mass a couple of weeks ago, I was searching through my purse for a cough drop for my son, and found stuff that I didn't even know I had. Apparently my quizzical expression while rooting around in there amused Ben, because he was snorting quietly with tears running from his eyes as I fished out first a rainbow-colored glove, then a stain-remover pen, a tube of Carmex I'd thought I lost forever, some fuzz that had once been God knows what, a pair of eye shades from the tanning parlor, several receipts, half a Ding-Dong I'd forgotten about, and a handful of change.

    I don't carry a purse.

    I do have an Eagle Creek black bag I purchased to take to Vietnam. It holds my wallet when my wallet isn't just loose in the car, which is where my wallet usually stays. Some lip balm. Loose papers and receipts. That's it.

    I don't carry a purse, but when I'm doing blue collar work for the family business I have something in nearly every pocket of my Carhart jeans and my hickory shirt.

    In my jeans I carry:
    • 6" crescent wrench
    • 7-in-one screwdriver
    • Mini mag light
    • Key ring with a dozen keys on it
    • At least a dollars worth of change
    • A lockback Snap-On knife
    • My wallet
    • A "Squirt" Leatherman mini multi function tool
    • Phone (clipped to my jeans pocket)
    In my Hickory shirt (depending on the season) I typically have:
    • Classic E-A-R. yellow ear plugs (used; I just leave them in my pocket and they go through the wash)
    • Classic Chapstick (no fruity flavors for me)
    • Backup phone (different carrier from one clipped on pants)
    • Pen
    • Bug dope (insect repellant)
    • A midmorning snack if I'm going out in the brush
    • Most importantly.... toilet paper (again if I'm going out in the brush)
    And that's about it...

    I don't know how to downsize! I carry my wallet, lipstick, nintendo ds with about a dozen games, an IPAC, my ipod, reading glasses, a current book that I am reading (with readers!) a notepad, an organizer (isn't one enough?), several pens and pencils, and 2 ancient immodiums. All this, just in case I have a free moment which almost never happens. In addition, if I lost this backpack, I would lose half of my possessions but I can't leave home without them! Is there any help out there for me?
