The ONLY reason I carry a purse is to hold the 2 remotes I need to operate the television in the community room.
I have everything I need in my bulging, purple billfold that will fit in my pockets.
cellphone for emergencies - I HATE to talk on the phone. I say what I need to and I'm done!
eyeglasses in a case (I switch from regular to sunglasses)
tissues, pen, eye drops, chapstick, certs, ponytail holder, inhaler, pretty pink mace
MIO - new no calorie water flavoring and a roll of medical tape (I keep meaning to get that stuff out and I keep forgetting to do it)
