Clean Out Your Purse...
Okay, you've bought the right travel purse. Now, what do you put in it and what do you leave out?
Think about your wallet. Do you really need absolutely everything in it when you travel? The grocery store card, department store card, or your local museum pass are probably not necessary when going to Paris.
Take the essentials and leave the rest at home. Then, think about a lightweight wallet that will hold what you need, including your passport.
Do you have lotion or hand sanitizer in your purse? Make sure they're travel size. How about aspirin or sunscreen? Again...travel size.
At the end of the day, take out all the things you won't need the next day. Maps, brochures, postcards, used tickets, etc. can all be removed and put in your luggage.
Do you toss coins in the bottom of your purse throughout the day? If so, remove them at the end of the day and don't let them accumulate for several days in a row. You can either put them in a coin purse so you know where they are or in your suitcase if you don't think you'll use them.
