    I don't mean carry it in your hands I mean another bag that's not a purse. Like if you carry around a bag for work/school why not put your things in their. Though I guess not everyone has a reason to carry a bag so bad idea. Or carry around a backpack. No worries of being attacked by your purse. Just throwing out ideas, it never occured to me to not carry a purse.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    My mother reduced from a proper giant mommy-bag to a little snap-shut pocketbook thing about a decade ago. She doesn't seem to miss the bag, though it seems that she has more trouble keeping track of the pocketbook (she would often leave it somewhere in one of my cars, like under the seat, and search everywhere for it)

    It is much nicer, I'd say.

    I guess I wasn't specifically thinking purse. In my brain 'purse' is more like 'bag you carry your crap around in.' My brain is wonky like that.

    I have one purse I use every day unless it's a special dress occasion and I need to match shoes. Even then it takes a lot for me to transfer everything out of one purse to another, but I carry less to a wedding, funeral or synagogue, so it's not much trouble. Doing that every day would drive me crazy.

    As someone suggested above, I use book bags. I can easily carry and find a book, pencil, notebook, water, snackbar and apple, as well as a wallet and keys when necessary. It's open and roomy, so searching for things isn't as big a problem. The person who suggested a small purse is right on. Small purse, big bag works the best for me.

    That said, currently I have a Sak purse which is very sturdy but LONG and things are constantly getting lost in it, especially keys which are heavy and sink to the bottom. Lipstick is also hard to locate.

    Thanks for the discussion. I think I need to get a smaller purse asap.

    I love hand bags! I've tried every shape and size over the years and I find the best ones can go over the shoulder but don't dangle too far down, and has several compartments to keep things organized. As cute as some of the more unstructured ones are, they just aren't practical and everything just ends up in a mess on the bottom. So I'm always on the hunt for a more structured bag that doesn't look matronly.

    WobblyStilettos gave excellent advice in her post.

    I love purses/handbags! I just bought this and the coin purse for my birthday.

    I don't like purses that are too large, but too small would be useless to me.

    Here's a website that may be useful. PurseBlog.com

    How about this one? ;P

    I'm feeling the sudden urge to make my own purse. Problem is, I'll have to do it in fabric. Maybe if I love it I'll get a leather worker to make a leather one based on my fabric model. This could be fun. And expensive.

    I hate purses, but I like my last two because they're cool and functional (small shapeless one-compartment cloth shoulder bags)yet sentimental. My current one was made by my sister-in-law. The one I had before that my brother bought for me in Guatemala.


    I can't see myself owning anything like the bags pictured above. I suppose I'll have to grow up eventually, but I hate the idea of carrying a suitcase around. Fuck that.
    I don't wanna!

    Timbuk2 messenger bags are great for getting organized. They have pockets for everything so you never lose your keys, pens, cell phone, or ID. I use an extra-small sized one for my everyday purse, and I don't know what I'd do without it.

    I usually carry around some kind of purse. I have to have a book and psp with me at all times. I don't use it everyday, but it can get boring when left for long periods of time in public places. Those activities deter strangers from talking to me.
