This weekend I experimented by not carrying a purse. Sure I like bags and I sure have enough of them, but over the last few years, I have been in situations where carrying one has turned into a hassle. For example when you go to an event, one is stuck with carrying it around on your shoulder or finding a place to stash it away. I had been leaving it in my car for the most part and carrying essentials in my pocket; often though women’s clothes don’t have pockets which infuriates me to no end, so I purposely shop for those that do. At any rate, this weekend I decided that I was going to try not carrying it to the point that I left it at home.
There were a few times that I felt as if I had forgotten something and I found myself wishing I had it, but they were few and far between. I think the thing is that one has to plan on what to take with you. It was a casual weekend and you can really fit a lot into jeans pockets, so for the most part it was okay, There was one event that I had to get dressed up for and I found that I was able to carry what I needed in the pockets of the suit I was wearing.
I really like the feeling. It was liberating, and I think I am going to do it more and more.
