You just reminded me- I also have a light poncho in there.

And I guessed a paperback, too, but never posted it.

I had the water , the breath mints ( dental hygiene tools )and if the nuts were from Trader Joe's I may have guessed three of the items and I probably had more but Ha is being discreet . What do I win ?

In my purse I have wallet and cellphone and keys - - plus sunglasses, hairbrush, medications, dental floss, checkbook and pen, stamps, calling cards from various businesses, coupons, and occasionally one or two mint hard candies. Well, and a small umbrella but only if the chance of rain is very high.

No water bottle, paperback book, Kleenex, notebook, or nuts.

I think you have some interesting ideas of other things that might be handy to carry. I particularly think a notebook and paperback book might be helpful to carry. I'll need a slightly bigger purse to do that.

I love my Rick Steves daypack for going places where I need more than a purse. It is small, light, and doesn't scream backpack. I think someone on this board recommended it for traveling.
Very well made for the price--around $25 IIRC. Also soft enough to be used as a pillow if not filled with books and such.
