NOPE! I have a small bag that attaches to my belt loops... it's big enough to hold cash, my cc, my id and a couple checks. Snaps closed and it's perfect..then I don't have to worry about anything!

Me, too, Pamlet. I bought a fanny bag a couple of years ago to take to the casino. It is perfect for BF. No purse to keep up with and everything I need fits right inside.

I usually do pockets only, but last year I carried a small backpack style purse since I wanted to keep my cell phone on me as well (I don't have a cell phone hip clip). but people kept bumping it and it was making me CRAZY! I have a great plan this year. I found an awesome pull over sweatshirt at American Eagle Outfitters that has a pocket inside the front pocket that closes with velcro so I will carry my cards, license and keys in my front jeans pockets and my cell phone in the sweatshirt pocket. Another great option if you are in not too cold of weather is a windbreaker with a front zipper pouch.

I always carry my purse with me but I'm always holding it so it doesn't get snatched.

NO Way!! I have a feeling this year will be alot of purse snatching with the heating bills rising to 70% more....I use a little wallet, and put the bare neccessities in it for my big day.

Oh wow, I never thought of that. I guess I should probably just take a fanny pack this year.

Yeah... I'll talk to my aunt about this, and decide what to do. We don't want to arrive up there in the USA and remember the best fanny pack stayed in Brazil...

I don't carry a purse on BF...I just can't be bothered...also, I can be a real scatterbrain....I'm likely to put it down and leave it somewhere.

No way! That would be in the way of carrying items and bashing people to get to what I need. I put everything in my jeans pockets, if it doesn't fit, I don't take it.

I do carry my purse because I live out of it and feel lost without it. Maybe I'll reconsider just for BF...

I wonder wear I can find a little case wear my credit card and license will fit. I could put my cash in a pocket. Walmart maybe. I would prefer a hard case as I hate my plastic to snap!


Try the dollar store or family dollar if there is one in your area. They tend to carry small purses for cheap. HTH Melinda:greenappl

I definately take a purse of some kind with me. I usually take my small one with me that I can put a few essential items in it ( money, keys, cellphone, cc's, and license). But the stores that have carts,,,,lol,,,I take the kids strap and put the strap of my purse through it and lock it. But I have someone with me when shopping so one of us has control of the cart. Nobody is getting my purse from me......even in the parking lot:D Because I hang on to it with dear life!

I never carry a purse. If it doesnt go in a pocket I don't take it with me. I have never understood why people carry their whole life story in a bag. My cc and dl go in my back pocket, car lock remote on hook to front belt loop, and cash in front pockets.

No I do not carry a purse on BF. That is one less thing I have to carry and one less thing I have to worry about. If it does not fit in my pockets then it stays home.

I know a fanny pack would be more sensable that carrying a purse, but I just can't see myself wearing one of those things. I haven't decided yet.:confused:

Well best thing is to use a debit card and little cash. Take it in a small gents purse. -Praveen

I'm going to carry one of my wristlets. It can hold my debit card, cash, my license and ins., and my keys.

What's a wristlet? I am seriously looking for an alternative to the fannypack, I just don't like them. I feel like if I put one on I'm aging myself 20 years.:razz:

I always carry one but, it is usually a style I never carry normally. I have to be able to put it in shopping mode (you know crossed over my body) I empty it down to the neccessities but, gotta have it.

I will not carry a purse. I just want to carry cash which might be a little risky but I don't want to blow my whole bank account. I am a compulsive shopper. Maybe I should visit the finance forum. LOL

No purse for me. It just gets in the way. It's bad enough that I have to wear a hat, scarf, gloves and a bulky coat because it's freezing out. Don't need to worry about a purse getting lost or stolen. I usually wear jeans and put my cell phone and keys in one front pocket and cash/credit cards/id in the other.
