Debit Card
CVS Card
Cell Phone
Lip Gloss
Hand Sanitizer

In the summer I generally carry a really small purse but in the cooler months look out cause I carry really big ones and its hard telling what you'll find in there.

I'm scared to look in my purse. Without looking in it, I know I have...

- Receipts and papers of ALL kinds
- A file folder with work in it
- Old candies from restaurants
- An apple
- Wallet
- Various lipsticks and lipglosses
- Cell phone
- Huge hairbrush
- Blue Umbrella
- Gum
- Keys
- Motrin
- A book
- Chequebook
- Baby Wipes

I'm sure there's more... that's just WITHOUT looking!!!

Im a guy, so I carry a wallet, long style that can hold a checkbook.
No checkbook in it, but along with the usual receipts, ID, insurance, credit
and business cards I also have:
a 3 inch needle, 1 pack of toothpicks, 1 military dog tag.

I used to have a regular little survival kit, with matches, magnifying glass, fish hooks, fishing line, wire and some other flat type stuff! A leftover from Boy Scout days, that just kept getting moved to the new wallet..... till I lost the wallet.

Which is also why I carry no photos in my wallet. Lost em.
