Do you use a purse?

For me, I do have several purses, I bought one for myself, and on my birthday, my friends send me two as gifts. But I never have the habit of using a purse. I just like to put my money, my card, my keys, and my cellphone in my pocket. Because I think if I use a purse, if I lose that purse, I will lose everything I have, that does not sound so good.

I think it's easy to lose the money or cards if you don't have a wallet. It is still better to have a wallet when you go out. I love China

Yes I love purses.luckely I have never lost my bag.But if you like purses you should carry them.With all the stuff you carry in your pockets something could fall out that would not be good.

I never used a purse in my life time . I got purses as gift many times and I gifted it to somebody those who have a habit of using it. I will keep my money, ID and the cards in my pocket only and I will be careful about my pocket always. Most of my friends use purses and most of them lost it more than once. I never lost money or valuables from my pocket.

I love purses.I have different kids of purses for the numerouse outfits that I have.Sometimes I just get them because I like the color or the zipper of the pattern.I never loose my purse because I always have it in my hand or over my shoulders.Kinda used to it.

No. I'm fed up with purses. And after seeing so many of my married female friends have to tote their husbands wallet, keys, smokes, etc when they go out together, I'm awfully glad I don't carry one anymore. I have all of my money, cards, ID, etc in a men's style wallet which I put in my back pocket. My front pockets are for my keys and cell phone. That's all I need. I don't need make-up or lip balm or tissues or a notepad or any of that stuff. If I need to carry an extra tampon I'll keep it in my car and go out for it when the time comes.

I carry a purse. I like to carry one as I've got used to it already. I keep my parent's photo and also my husband's. I line up my credit and debit cards neatly and mooney too! I find having a purse is very organized compared to not use one. I tried once, coz my sister don't carry one. When she get a jeans from the cupboard, she'll fing money in it! She'll be very happy and looking at that happiness, I stop using purse for awhile. But it didn't suit me..

It is hard most of the time to carry one - which is why I like cross body bags so that I dont have to take care of taking it left or right or forgetting it somewhere I'd go out with a small purse for shopping or a wallet - easy to take care of and my cell 4 sure .. If I'm going for a party, I always have a bag to put the things I need :D makeup and such. Thanks

I have just started using a purse.Earlier I kept all my money,keys,cards in shirt pocket and pant pockets.Sometimes they are messed up and are not ready to get when there is a demand to act quick.So,now I am using a purse and it is so useful for me.But there is the risk of losing everything when you lose the purse,as you have mentioned.So,I will be careful about it in the future.Cheers!

Yes, I used a purse, small purse or long purse. I must use it. Cause there are too many things I need to bring along with me in my bag when I go out. Can't left any of them out like credit cards, identity card, driving license, noted and coins and all sort of shopping cards and reward cards..I can't imagine what if I don't have a purse I will be so tension and will keep on checking on it, afraid if I'm lost it or misplace it. Having a purse is so much organised. I don't put all things in pocket coz I will forget to dig it out once I change pant. Over the weekend, I forget to take out my car key in a pant and take that to wash in machine, luckily it still working...

Yes I have coin purse. I always use it because I would be having hard time picking some coins in my pocket besides that, if i never use coin purse the rim of my pocket would easily be dirty of always picking coins from inside...I guess using coin purse would make you feel easier getting coins that getting it from your pocket...

I use a purse but i find them extremely annoying. They get heavy and they twist my back so after a day of carry it around my back is sore. The problem is that i have so many things to carry. I try to empty out my bag as often as i can but it fills up with things so after that. Lately i've been trying to us a small backpack which is easier on my back and i'm still able to carry stuff in it. I want to get a really small clutch purse that has a strap that goes around my wrist. That way i can carry everything that is important but nothing else.

I haven't carried a purse in about 20 or more years. I stopped using one after mine got stolen from a store. I was at a shoe store and laid my purse down in front of me to try on a pair of shoes, when I looked back up it was gone. Just that fast! They must have just wanted my money because someone found my bill fold beside a dumpster and turned it in. I was so upset that I have never carried one after that, now I just carry all my money in my pockets.

This sounds like me. I love to make them and give them away and even tuck them into my closet but to use one is just not me. I am not worried about losing anything, as I have double and sometimes triple of things like sscards, birth certs and stuff like that, but I just hate the extra carry on. Typically when you see me, I have my phone and cigs, lipgloss and lighter in my right hand and all my id's and things in my right back pocket. If I have to use a purse, I feel like I have lost the feminist battle. Not that I am one, but I am a rough and tumbly kinda girl and a purse doesn't do it for me. I have a victoria's secret purse for my make-up and others for my girls to play with, other than that, if you are close to me, I probably just made you one or have one in the closet for you. I don't know why, but this is me!

I use a wallet which holds my cards and ids and paper money but the coins goes in a small pouch bag and sometimes I just place them on my bags pockets or just leave them anywhere in my bag. Same with my keys...I did buy a bag organizer and my keys now my keys goes there and my usbs and other small stuffs. I don't place all my cash in my wallet though...there was this time I placed all my money in my wallet and it got stolen. Now I'm smarter and bring just enough for my needs when I go out and I have my money scattered in my bag or my pockets just to be safe of not losing everything.
