  3. A pen
  4. Keys
  5. Makeup case
  6. Hand lotion

  6. Cell phone hangs in a pouch from my pants waist, belt, or belt loop
  7. Ice Breakers, Chloraseptic tablets, pen, makeup case, hand lotion, liipstick, perfume, checkbook, tissue pack, P-Mates, reading glasses, panty liner, brush, change pouch, the larger wallet, the larger hair brush, the roll-up flats, and the extra cigarettes, E-cigs, and lighter get left behind.

I go purse-less whenever I can, but that isn't often.

I live a half mile from the beach, when I go for my beach walks 2 or 3 mornings a week, I go even less than what I listed. Just my keys, cigarettes, and lighter. That's pretty bare minimum for me.

Quoting MamaMoopsie:

In my purse:

Cell phone

wallet

cigarettes & lighter

two spare diapers (for the kids)

a small package of baby wipes

nail clippers with a file attached

lotion

chapstick

My medications (4 different bottles) in the zipper pocket.

My wallet.

Important papers (Like my insurance cards, small envelopes for pay stubs, important mail that needs to be addressed).

A little baggie with make-up (lip gloss, powder, tampons).

Day Planner.

Whatever book I am reading (if I am reading a tanglible book).

My Smart Phone.

I think that's it??

If I leave my purse behind I take my phone and my wallet, that's it.
