Do you carry any odd items on your purse or diaper bag?

My dh needed to measure something and I offered my tape measure. After all this time he still thinks it's odd that I have a mini tape measure in my purse. With special kids, it is helpful for all those measurements for equipment.

 Hahaha you sound like me. I used to always carry a tape measure with me. I don't carry a purse or diaper bag anymore because it mainly stays in the car but I think that the weirdest thing I carry still is a small first aide kit.

I have the tool thing too!!

Quoting jjamom:

I have a small Letterman tool in my purse. It has small tools like a screwdriver, pliers, a small flashlight, etc. I also have a few matchbox cars and usually a pull up and a ziploc bag of wipes (if I don't feel like lugging an entire diaper bag somewhere)!

I have one epi-pen jr, two reg. epipens, allergy tablets enough for three doses just in case all need epi pens and meds (which has happen). tiger balm for me, three inhalers, emergency seizure med kit, nausea pills, motrin, tape measure, multi tool kit, mini first aid kit, medication cards for each child and my husband, notebook and pen for kids to draw on, and some other misc. thing I forget. My husband jokes because my purse is full of everything except my wallet I have to keep that in my back pocket as it would not fit in my purse.

I like the survival kit!


Quoting michele115:

Nothing crazy just regular girl stuff but I think I have some little thing I got for a dollar called a survival kit. It's a tiny little square thing that has a tiny saw, screwdriver I think it's like 12 different things. I use to carry a bouncy ball so if anyone was bored instant entertainment but that was before cell phones. I have make-up, checkbook, coupons, wallet, my flip cam. It's more like what isn't in there.
