So many times I've heard people (mostly women) say, "I carry my life around with me," when referring to their handbag, a backpack, attache, etc. So I'm curious, what do you carry around in your bag?

I hope you remember to lock your car doors or have a good anti theft system. I'd be afraid of someone taking my stuff out of my car.

I don't lock my car doors...what can others take? Mascara, extra jacket, book, water?... I don't watch my belongings...if someone takes it, means need it...but so far nobody needed it....:))) I lock my house doors to protect my pets….all I worry about…everything else belongs to material world and can be easy replaced…

I guess I see someone breaking into my property to take something as a malicious invasion, rather than someone taking something because they need it. I, too, believe that material possessions are replaceable, but I guess I'm lazy. It would be a pain to try and replace something, if I decided I needed to replace it. I like your point of view.

The essentials I carry around with me everywhere are: eyeliner, cover-up, hairbrush, ipod, cellphone, wallet, and hand sanitizer. It may sound like a lot of stuff, but my handbags are never heavy. The hairbrush & cosmetics are necessary for touch-ups in the bathroom, the hand sanitizer is there because I don't like public bathroom soap (and my hand sanitizer smells so good, it freshens up the atmosphere with its fragrance), and the rest are pretty obvious. Women probably carry so many things with them because most of them are concerned with their appearance and find it necessary to 'touch-up' when going out (whether or not a date). At least, that's how I feel. WHAT DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR BAG? You didn't answer your own question there, my friend 8D

Thanks for your response! I find that no matter how big my bag gets, it's never large enough to carry everything. LOL!
