Woman/Man Up!

So Debra threw down this challenge to the universe - show us what's in your handbag/purse/man bag.

And I'mma stealing it right fucking now!

My purse has three pockets; I will show one pocket's contents at a time.

Pocket #1 (the front)


address book (paper; yes, they still make these!)

business card holder (other people's cards, not mine)

gym weight/exercise notebook (gotta know what weight to use on what machines, or what size free weights to pick up)

spare house & car keys

mini double-ended crochet hook (maddie, git yer mind out of the gutter!)
 
***********************************************************************************

Pocket #2 (the middle)


2 asthma inhalers (depending on the severity of the attack)

a bottle of aleve

a hairbrush

my keyring

a pen

my driving glasses

a flash drive (contains my company's quickbooks file [in case of an office fire])

a clear makeup bag with small items (think bandaids and cough drops); but no makeup since I don't wear that shit

***********************************************************************************

Pocket #3 (the back)



my wallet

my car insurance/registration card holder (nope, ain't gonna show my house address)

***********************************************************************************

Notice there are no techno gadgets ANYWHERE!  Don't need 'em, don't want 'em!

Now it's YOUR turn; show us your essentials!

  1. I'd show mine but I don't carry a wallet; I use an antique silver business card case as a wallet for my ID and one credit card.
    That's all I need.

  2. Dear me.
    My business bag is a bricolage too big to list. time to tidy it up.

  3. Interesting and very functional. Except for that mysterious crochet hook. I notice you don't carry crochet yarn. So do you use the hook like a ninja star or something to put out an attacker's eye? Do tell!

    1. no, I use it to fix knitting mistakes if I happen not to have a full-size crochet hook on my person.

  4. A swiss army knife that I have to remember to take out every time I go into a school.

  5. You are obviously much more organized than I am. I cram half of my stuff in pockets...and I lose the other half. Men don't have purses, but we sure as hell need them....

  8. Wouldn't it be more convenient to use a suitcase to lug all that around?

  11. My mom never carried a big purse but she always seemed to have everything in it, especially Kleenex. I don't have a man bag or a wallet. I usually have some cash, driver's license, insurance card, two American Express cards and a Visa card in my pocket. RJJS

    1. you tread lightly. unfortunately, I cannot stick one of my asthma inhalers in my pants pocket; it would feel like a dildo! ;-)
