I have a small purse I guess compared to everyone else. I have to say that even though it's small it's my favorite. It's a Dooney & Bourke very similar to this one and my favorite part is that it's lined with bright ass red fabric. It's so awesome. I love it. Sophisticated on the outside and slut red on the inside, just like me! smile.gif

Well I’ve got:
Keys (my house, my car, my parent's house, Mr. Pug's parent's house, mail box, various swipe cards for various grocery stores, and also my first pugs dog tag)
Wallet (cash, debit card, AAA card, library card, target gift card, barnes and noble gift card, car insurance card and driver's license)
Cell phone
Small pocket calendar with a cute little pug puppy on the front
Tide to go pen (cause Mr. Pug is a slob and is always spilling something on himself)
Cheap sunglasses
Breath mints
My rosary
Clicky pen
School ID clipped to the strap
$1.25 in change (I try not to keep any change other then quarters cause anything else just jingles around in the bottom)
Ouchless hair ties in multiple colors

I wish I could fit snacks and CD's in my bag. Maybe I should invest in a bigger Dooney & Bourke? dry.gif
I've never seen this thread! And it is exciting to me so I'm going to post in it!
Since I'm not yet a year past my undergrad, I kind of have not yet transitioned to no longer carrying around my backpack. I do use a purse if I'm just going out for a date or whatever, but my everyday bag is definitely still my Jansport backpack!

So without any further adieu:

- Notebook for work notes while being trained (now just used for doodling while on a call and the like).
- Journal used for writing deepest thoughts / keeping track of the food I have eaten during the day to prevent over-eating (very important!).
- Random work papers that were handed out sometime during the past three months.
- "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel, which I have been trying to read for the past two months but have been failing miserably at because there aren't enough hours in the day.
- Headset for work.
- Wallet, sans debit card because the Mister has it in his wallet at the moment.
- Video iPod.
- USB cable for iPod.
- Keys for apartment.
- Sunglasses.
- A lint roller.
- Random food containers from tonight's dinner.
- A fork.
- A spoon.
- Coffee mug.
- Water bottle with lemon-flavoued water still in it.
- A tampon (glad that's over for the month!).
- A pen.
- A hair clip with two elastics attached to it.
- A brush.
- A Tintin pencil case that I bought in Belgium moonlighting as a makeup bag (which has in it: pressed powder compact in Ivory, gold creme eye shadow, a "cafe" eyeshadow kit, a single dark brown shadow compact, brown eyeliner, black-brown mascara, classic pink blush, and three lip glosses: mango coconut, cherry vanilla, and strawberry. There is also an eyebrow brush and a pair of tweezers in this bag!).
- A case for my glasses.
- Contact solution.
- Contact case w/contacts in it.
- Spray cleaner for aforementioned glasses.
- Some chocolate bar wrappers.

I do believe that is all.
And the sad thing is, even if I wasn't using a backpack, I would probably have all of this in my bag anyway. It would just be really full!

Oh and Pugs:
I used to carry around a Tide-To-Go pen, too! I can't believe that they actually work! I think I should get another one as the cap for mine fell off and it dried out and you never know when you'll need to remove a stain! laugh.gif
arcadia, how random that we're carrying around same book!
I am a firm believer in speaking loudly and carrying a big purse. A purse should also be large enough to discretely carry a bottle of champagne. That having been said here is what is in my north face messenger bag

In the front zipper pocket
calendar that I write in ( very low tech)
Cell phone
tube of m&m minis
altoids winetergreen
an orange higlighter
a blue highlighter
a triangle shaped highlighter with blue , pink and yellow
two pencils
one pen
burts bees hand salve
burts bees honey lip balm
Ulta 3 lipstick in bordeaux shimmer
a ribbon that says music award
a barrett
keys for my job

In the first inner pocket
3 extra absorbant tampons
1 packet of thera flu
1 traditional medicinals throat coat tea bag
two green highlighters ( one small on large) (( apparently I have a thing for highlighters the total count is now 5))
one mini pink sharpie
various reciets
1 small plastic multihued flourescent slinky in the shape of a butterfly

in another small pocket
jump disc

in large compartment

cd case
old bra from Schwartz's intimate apparel
new bra from Schwartz's intimate apparel in a pink plastic bag ( the only place I will buy a bra because they rule)
notepad with to do list

in last compartment
direct deposit slip from work
license, debit card, paycheck
cell phone
comb, lip balm
packet full of apartment listings I cut from the paper
card advertising a festival I'm going to
pin that says "feminists do it better" on the front.

It's summer. What else do I need in there? Also, it's very small purse, because my larger summer purse is MIA. I KNOW my sister stole it.

So, my purse is fairly empty but my car, on the other hand, is overflowing with clothes, beach stuff, work uniforms, notebooks, CDs, textbooks I forgot to sell back, disposable cameras, boxes of tea, snacks, food journals and money journals that I used for about 3 days, etc.
missladyj -

i just looked up those north face messanger bags. they are pretty nice. how long have you had yours? do they last a long time? I've had a Jansport pack that is 11 years old and is still going strong. I'm a little tired of it and was thinking up getting something new. Would you recommend north face?

Since I'm new here, I thought I'd go with a nice safe post -- plus I've always prided myself on the fact that if I ever went on "Let's Make A Deal" I could probably win the "Do you have this in your bag?" game. Although, from the looks of it, some of you ladies have me beat hands-down!

Side pockets: cel phone, subway passes.
Front pocket: Work badge & id.
Inside: 3 sets of keys (work, home, car), three dollar bills, phone charger, wet naps, burt's bees hand creme, sunglasses case & sunglasses, wallet, random papers & shopping lists, splenda packets, four tampons, two lip balms, three lipsticks, powder compact, breath freshener, barrette, pen, two matchbooks, oh and the meds...sinus pills, excedrin, generic pms pills, xanax, benadryl & headache powders, and a cool little gadget-thingy that I was supposed to send to my dad for father's day, but it got lost in my purse and I forgot -- but here it is! I guess it can go in his Christmas stocking now biggrin.gif
Haha, bunnyb! That's awesome!

Where are you in the book? I'm on Chapter 4, I think. I've been trying to read it because everyone I've spoken to who recommends a book recommends "Life of Pi" because apparently it's amazing, but I don't have enough time to read it with work and everything. I've resigned to reading a few chapters before bed, so I hope that I can finish it by the end of the month.
arcadia, I finished the book today (started it last week) and LOVED, Loved, loved it! It's a light (although deep subject) read and the chapters are short so you should manage a few before bedtime - enjoy!
I've had the north face bag for almost a year and I love it. It is very sturdy,and has a comfy shoulder strap. I think it will last awhile. It is super roomy, lots of compartments and it fits everything I need to lug around. Definately thumbs up from me.

Previous to this I had a green suede backpack that I have used for about 15yrs and had to finally give it up. I'm thinking the north face bag could possibly last as long.
