My handbag indicates that I am poor and can't afford something better.

Or that I don't give a shiat.  Or both.

I have been carrying a plain black leather bag for 27 years, because that's what is authorized in uniform (USAF now ANG). Retiring in January, and carried a leopard spotted purse to drill last weekend. What are they gonna do, fire me?

My wife is a white army brat who was born in Malaysia, and she carries purses that could be sympathetically described as "hobo focused."  Each purse is the size of North Dakota and she will keep no less than 20 pounds of "essentials" in any one she happens to be carrying.

She's got about 50 of those damn things.

Bag contents:

makeup - check
wallet - check
tissues - check
hair brush, comb, mirror - check
hair ties, bobby pins - check
gum - check
condom - check
vibrator - check
tube lube - check
lint - yes
old paper wrappers - yes

This is a valid set of observations. If you are marketing handbags it's good to know if you're barking up the wrong tree selling bag A in a market full of people who grew up with bag B, and how many of A you should carry for people relocated from where A is prevalent.

As trivial as it sounds, this could be a valid research topic.

Mine is the little clear plastic bag that jail gives you to put your personal items in (after they "confiscate" my money for "investigation"). But it's nice because they have to list all the crap they put in it and write it on the front. So it's like a check list.

I got classy and taped a strap on it.

They take your hoodie tie and shoe strings, too.

You'd think I'd learn and always keep spare sandals and a sweater. I just cut the hoodie string out. Jail is farking cold.

I am 43, I take a backpack everywhere.   Heck, in Honk Kong where every Westerner is a tourist, doesn't matter if I look like a dork.  It is an easy way to be.

Bedsheets are always an option. You just have to know how to tie knots.

"You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition's given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed: pure West Virginia. What is your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars... while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI."

I just bought my son a cool crochet type bracelet of para cord designed to use when necessary (Booksamillion frippery). Not sure if the bracelet falls apart upon use, or gets gradually smaller. Guys don't carry purses so they don't have stuff handy sometimes. At all times I have tweezers, a nail clipper, a Leatherman mini tool, and the latest addition, a small lock pick set (which can be considered a criminal tool, but my soon to be retired military husband is starting a business, so I have reason to have it. He is teaching me to use it). Also, safety pins. And lip gloss.
