    There is also a flash drive in that photo somewhere.

    My coin purse is full of crap that I won't photograph, but contents include spare keys of a friend, a CPR mask, condoms, hairpins, extra car keys, and of course actual coins.

    This was fun! I am going to find a new home for some of this, just too much.

    Your mention of your iPad reminds me: typically my Playbook is also in my purse, but I was using it to take the photo.

    I wish I could get down to a few items.

    I'm a bit of a freak of girly nature. lol I didn't even bother carrying a purse at all until a few years ago, though I always had a few. Until I had kids, I was perfectly happy putting my bank card, drivers license, money, phone, and a lipgloss/lipstick in my pockets. Then I had to carry a diaper bag with me everywhere and used that for my wallet and other things. I retired the diaper bags as soon as I could because I hated those huge things and got a big (for me) purse that would carry what I needed for the kids and myself. Now I usually carry a small purse and that's it. It took forever for me to get used to it and not forget it everywhere!

    I usually carry a medium to large size purse and find it is so heavy. But I'm not a fan of small purses so I refuse to downsize. I'm shocked bacause I thought I was a minimalist compared to some of the lists here but after looking, I have a lot of crap. Today I have:

    Clutch that I use as a wallet for American money, debit/credit card
    Small makeup bag with:
    Burt's bees pomegranate
    Revlon lip butter (2 shades)
    Clear nail polish
    2 lip glosses I never wear anymore
    Small roller perfume
    Nail file and clipper
    Monogrammed mirror

    Phone
    Mini notebook with pen
    Foldup handheld fan
    Coin purse for yen
    Keys (lots of them)
    Mini Kleenex pack
    Barrette
    Tylenol
    Sunglasses (only on weekends, otherwise in my car)
    Nametag for work (usually left in my desk but i forget to take it off when I run out on Friday afternoons)
    Lock of my daughter's hair (she just got her first haircut this week)

    I will definitely be cleaning this out today and getting rid of some stuff.

    I'm going to have to borrow that pencil case idea. That would make things so much more organized for me. I used to use Ziplock bags.

    At the moment it's just packing an empty glasses case.

    I tend to put my sunglasses (unless I need them from the onset), my cell phone, some money, a hair tie and tinted lip balm in it before going out, and then put that stuff back when I get home.

    ...If I take a purse. I can relate to Nalia's post.

    Since my purse broke in an argument, I have it stuffed into a tiny backpack which holds my junk. Probably less is in my bag now than ever before. Although I do now keep my makeup bag in the same little backpack.
