Whenever I’m out with friends, there’s a moment when I simply can NOT find my phone, cigarettes, whatever. I start pulling things out of my purse one by one and someone always exclaims “How much stuff do you have in there?!”

Well. A lot.

You wouldn't believe what this thing can hold.

What’s in my purse, you ask? Well let me tell you:
