Keys, work badge, business cards and work cell phone, small wallet for coffee cards and gift cards, regular wallet with the usual stuff, small. Zipper pouch with pens, my ear buds, clippers and Chapstick, day planner, misc crap like receipts that get thrown into the bottom, my cell phone. Nothing special. I don't go purse less because I've had my wallet stolen when I did go purse less in the past.

Quoting goddess99:

I have been carrying a small wristlet, so my phone, id, money, cards, that's it.

with the addition of lip gloss and a compact, that was me before kids.
Now that wristlet goes inside the diaper bag which has lots of other things for the kiddies! Diapers, wipes, snacks, sippie cups, band aides, neosporin spray, hand sanitizer and tissues! Oh and let's not forget the ipod touch's!
