    It's All In the Pockets

    I carry what I need in my pockets.  Since my jeans are loose-fitting enough and have deep pockets like I like, I can carry everything from a penny to a wrench.  If it doesn't fit in my pocket and clutters my hands, I probably don't need it.  Otherwise, it's in...

    Carry A Purse

    I usually do carry a purse.  It all depends where I go or what I do.  If it is just going out for a few minutes, I won`t bother unless it is really important for me to carry my purse.  Lately, when I go to the grocery store, I don`t even carry it, I either carry my wallet or...

    You Will Never Catch Me With One.

    I hate them. Why the hell would I need to carry all that junk with me everywhere I go? I have my wallet and maybe a phone on me when I leave my house. I sometimes have a music player of some sort. That is all I need. I can't figure out why so many woman have those thing attached...

    Loose It

    I'll just keep loosing it!! I went to a market once and had to run back to this stall because I left my purse there. I could've lost it!! Along with my health card and a good few notes. But, on the plus side, I'd have finally gotten rid of all my change. Well, a bit of it anyway...

    I Don't Carry A Purse

    For two reasons (1) it's not my style. Carrying a purse in my opinion is way too girly and I am not and (2) there's a risk of getting your purse snatched by some burglar.

    Not For Years

    Just not something I need. I have my cell and keys and shove everything else in my pocket. What do I really need anyways... lip stick and the phone seem to be my only required things.

    I Never Carry A Purse

    The last time I carried a purse you could still count my age on your fingers. I have no need for a purse because I don't feel the need to take things with me anywhere because all I'll do is lose them. I tend to get distracted when I'm doing things and the last thing on my mind is...

    They Get In The Way

    back packs or those bags that go across the shoulder work much better.

    Not Usually

    When I go across the street to the gas station or pharmacy, I just carry my wallet in hand. I only carry a purse when I go on bigger missions.

    Then, later, I was in Paris, at a kiosk buying a newspaper, when I was nineteen and I had a shoulder purse into which I stuffed some Euros notes change. A guy skated by and snatched my bag. He was gone really quickly, and I was out of over sixty Euros. I resolved to have a pocket...

    I've never been able to carry a purse around! I just find it sort of cumbersome and always in the way when I least need it. It's uncomfortable because its always sliding down my shoulder or bumping against my side annyoingly as I walk, or even bumping into other people. I have a...

    I have read that a lot of you think it is just a hassle to carry a purse or sholder bag. You loose them of just forget to grab them when you leave somewhere. My question is where do you put your personal items during your 'time' of the month?
