    As a girlie, I have no idea what's lurking in the bottom of my handbag which I might one day find useful - like sewing kits, spare contact lens case (in case I get swept off my feet one evening on the Tune), a bottle opener, pens and paper and obviously a kitchen sink ;)

    Things that I make sure I transfer if I change bags
    Phone, keys, purse (wallet), iPod, book (never get stuck on London Transport without one!), mascara, lipstick, Tube pass, gum, work entry token

    Every morning as I prepare for work the same things always end up in my pockets:

    - Wallet
    - 1 tin of Altoids
    - 1 Jumbo pack of Extra Polar Ice gum (or what is left of the previous pack)
    - Keys
    - USB thumb drive
    - iPod
    - my nifty cross pen
    - cell phone

    Actually I have that stuff on me at all times, sometimes the iPod stays in it's dock, but the rest of it I always have on me.

    Then since work encompasses alot of my time I also have
    - Work badge
    - Pager

    too much stuff! Thank god a quit smoking a few years ago, otherwise that would just add to the mass of clutter in my pockets!

    I can't believe you're the only one besides me so far to carry a knife. 75 years ago, almost everybody would have a pen-knife (or pocket-knife, if you prefer) on them at all times. I find it useful at least ten times daily (usually because nobody else carries one).

    Okay...lets see know. I carry around a bunch of crap. So much, I carry around a bag all the time. I get teased. They call it my man purse. I don't care. I need most of it, at least I think I do. Lets go through it, shall we?

    iPod
    2 Earbuds - Koss The Plug and the Apple ones that came with the iPod
    iTrip
    iPod car charger
    Paperback Novel - Currently Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tom Robbins
    2 Composition book, the marbled kind
    Legal Pad
    Sketh diary
    Digital Camera
    Pens - 1 Sharpie, 1 HiLighter, 3 Pencils, 2 blue Bic disposable pens, 1 led pen, 2 Zig Millennium Inking pen, 1 black Zebra click pen, 1 Pilot Roller Ball, Big Pink pencil eraser
    Magazines - Game Informer, Writer's Digest
    Pocket Knife
    Gum - Dentine Ice Peppermint and Double Mint
    Cell Phone
    Sunglasses - Prescription Ray Ban aviators with case
    Convetion Badges
    Condom - Cola flavored...Not mine, seriously...how, and why, did that get in there...?
    Keys
    Wallet
    Checkbook - Don't even know why I carry it around. No where takes them anymore
    Set of guitar strings
    Collapsable cup with a couple Advil
    Broken pocket watch
    Deck of Cards
    Change - looks like 3 bucks or so

    I think that's it. Why do I have so much crap? I need to get rid of most of this stuff.

    EDIT: I also found, crumpled at the bottom in a corner while cleaning after writing this, an empty pack of Lucky Strikes and a cigarette lighter. How old it is, I have no clue.

    That'll rot your teeth. :eek:

    Me? I try to carry as little as possible. Wallet, "cell phone" or mobile and that's probably it.

    P.S. Anyone else think the "eek" smiley wants it bad?

    Wow, you people must be getting a lot of exercise carrying around all that stuff.

    Me? Wallet, keys, sometimes loose change. The iPod is for the car, not cramming into pockets. What else is there?
