HOW BIG SHOULD A PURSE BE?

How big is the purse you carry? I've gone from carrying a purse the size of a notebook, to a purse the size of a brown grocery bag. I didn't realize how much I can cram in a purse until I couldn't carry it when my back went out.

WHAT ARE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR PURSE RIGHT NOW?

Yesterday, I thought...what the heck is in here? Here are the items I currently have in my purse. You tell me if this sounds like a problem, or if I'm like every other Mom out there:

  • Wallet
  • Bills
  • A hardcover book
  • A dog Leash (Not pictured)
  • A dog bowl!  Yes...A dog bowl
  • Food
  • A bag of almonds
  • A BIG bottle of water...Actually I had TWO bottles of water. one for me and one for my dog over the weekend.
  • Lotion
  • Lip Gloss
  • Headphones....
  • Pens
  • Sunglasses
  • Jewelry
  • Invitations
  • Keys
  • A 98.1 Sticker
  • Headphones
  • My cellphone (Not pictured)

THE CONTENTS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS

My purse used to contain:

  • Diapers
  • Formula
  • Wallet
  • Pacifiers
  • Extra baby clothes
  • Medications
  • Extra baby bottles

I'VE TRIED TO GO SMALLER

So you say...Kelly..you need to downsize...but do I? Really? I still need to carry all the stuff somehow. Actually it's quite a convenient way to carry everything with me so I have it whenever I need it. My purse is actually a backpack purse, so I don't have to carry it.

I do downsize when I'm going for a walk. I carry a fanny pack including my phone, and dog poop bags. That's downsizing.
