Choose a unique item in your purse/wallet and explain why you carry it.
I have a guitar pick in my wallet from a Jimmy Eat World concert I went to see way back in college. We were right up front and the bassist handed it right to me. I found it when I was packing up my stuff at my parents when I was moving in to our house after the wedding and it's been in my wallet ever since.
My medicine bag! I have to carry epipens (2, because one might not be enough) and benadryl.... so I stock the bag with other things, too, like headache meds etc. just to always have some on hand. I thought everyone carried the non perscription stuff, but it seems like people are always suprised I have it!
I carry letters (correspondence) from my FI mom. I wrote to her when he and I first started dating and so I have my letter and her response back to me.
I don't know why I carry it with me daily but the letter meant so much to me for so many reasons and I couldn't bare to part with it. When I first recevied it I just kept clutching it to me and reading it over and over.
Again, please understand that the content of the letters were a little deep hence the emotion. I wouldn't want anyone to know...I mean think I was a big baby ;-)
A skull & crossbones themed wallet & other accessories... A lil' rock & roll badness inside a Coach bag, LOL!
I still carry the business card DH gave me when he finally got up the nerve to ask me out. I met him while catching the bus. He was the driver and I had to catch the bus because my car was totalled in an accident. When he handed me the card and I turned it over and it said "Dinner Maybe?", it just melted my heart! It is all beat up pretty bad, but I still carry it with me because it touched my heart!
Aw love these!!
I don't really keep anything sentimental in my purse. Just the usual. Wallet, receipts, lip gloss, lip stick, keys, the only two things I always have are deodorant (just in case) and the thunder valley casino card (also just in case hhaha)
I don't know that it's unique, but most people would probably be surprised that I have a handgun in my purse right now. I have a license to carry a concealed weapon, and I carry it for self-defense.
Colored pens! As an English teacher, I have blue and green and pink and purple pens for grading in every bag I own!
ear plugs. i use them at church. sometimes the music is too loud and i get a headache. they come in super handy. i have had to use them at the movies before too.
I have my Mom's mass card in my wallet. I also have a stockpile of pens (I'm a closet office supply addict - LOL)
