I used to carry a good size purse and got tired of it when shopping. Then I tried a small one, I could slip it under my arm while shopping, love it. Lately, when I'm shopping and only needed debit card, I got one of those cell pho wallet one's, it goes on your belt. Well I love it. I can zipper it on the left side and no one can get to it with out actually reaching right in into my stomach. I don't have much in it, and it also holds my cell pho. Next I guess I'll go for nothing, just let my husband carry the $ and I'll carry the pho.

  • I wear pants with lots of zip or velcro pockets when I am doing more than a quick shopping trip. I don't have to carry a purse when I wear those. If I do carry a purse then it is a big one so I can have not only ID, cards, some cash, mirror and comb, keys, but also headache med, chap stick, emery board, tissues, cell phone, band aids, and so forth.

  • I'm too much of a girly-girl to go purse-less! I go medium. Something big enough for a small can of hairspray!

  • More power to ya if you can get away w/ a little purse or none at all. Personally, I've always had a big purse. (usually weighs in at 10 lbs!- 7 lbs after I clean it out)

  • Seems like the bigger my purse, the more unnecesary crap I wind up lugging around. I try to keep it down to a low roar.

  • I've tried to carry a small one and I just can't do it...there are just too many things I need to carry and have with me that won't fit into a smaller bag. I have to carry something larger.

  • Huge- but it also doubles as my computer case when I travel, which is all of the time. I have a smaller clutch that serves as my wallet. Often times, especially when going to the grocery store, I'll just take the clutch. I generally walk to/from the grocery store and just stick the clutch and my keys in my reusable bags.

  • I use both. Sometimes I use the bigger purse when I have to use it as a diaper bag but I can get away with a small one if I wanted. It just depends on my mood and how much stuff I want to carry.
