Here's what I carry instead of a purse (and a peek inside) Believe it or not, I don't carry a purse.  Never have, and likely never will.  However, I do of course need some bare essentials on me when I'm working with organizing clients.  Here's a peek inside of my work bag that never goes to restaurants, never goes to stores, never goes to friends' houses, etc. ONLY to work!

Do any of you also not carry a purse?  If you do, are you willing to experiment with not carrying one for a few days?  If you do carry a purse, what in there is so essential and bulky that it won't fit in a large wallet?  I never understood why women need so much stuff on them.  It feels like a burden to me, but apparently millions of women feel differently! Do tell all in the comments below.
