I'm always curious about what people carry in their handbags. Especially when I see someone digging through lots of stuff to find their phone or keys, etc.

So, what's the one most unusual thing that you carry in your purse at all times?

I'll answer first. I usually carry run of the mill things, but I do carry one thing that most people would never guess was in my bag. I carry a Pez dispenser. I used to carry a vintage Wonder Woman Pez dispenser that I got as a gift, but right now I'm carrying Hello Kitty around with me. I cut down on candy intake, and it's been empty for a while, but I still carry it around with me.



What's in your bag?

Rarely go anywhere without an epipen and a small bottle of liquid Bendryl plus an Albuterol inhaler.

The usual, plus an OldTimer pocketknife in the little liftout wristlet and a Swiss army knife in the big bag. Oh, and crayons. :>)

I have one of those bags that people look for when they have forgotten something - tylenol, ibuprofen, hand lotion, a pen or pencil, mints, gum, tampons....you name it. I usually still carry two tylenol 3 and 2 gravol in case of migraine, but haven't needed them in quite a long time - yay!

There are usually 4 or 5 lipsticks in there, though I don't lend those, but no comb or brush.

The thing I almost always have that most people don't is an empty Burt's Bees or other small tin. I use it to put my gum in if I can't find a bin, but have also used it to save seeds someone gathered on a walk, buttons that have fallen off, earrings... It is amazingly useful!

Things I currently don't have, but think I should- bandaids and safety pins.

An endless supply of Zantac. When an ulcer attack sends you to the ER b/c they think you are having a heart attack you learn to be really prepared. I also have gum, sunglasses, chapstick, a calculator, pencils and a Hotwheel. lol Oh and don't forget the hand sanitizer.

I may have one or two items that no one else here has:

A small container of Tea Tree salve - natural antibiotic, bug bite/burn soother - sort of a mini first aid kit in a tin lol.

Swiss Army knife (not THAT unusual - but I'm prepared! Except I always need to remember to remove it if I'm flying)

And a pendulum - for dowsing.
