REVISED*Yet another reason why I do NOT carry a purse...

I have always thought they were evil (jk)

*Really it is not the germs I am afraid of, it's the purse. But really people PLEASE do wash your hands.*

That's DISGUSTING!!!!! I should think twice about carrying a purse! Never thought about those places, although I hang up my purse in the restroom; I have put it on the floor at restaurants under the table and stuff! Gross!! So, how do you carry normal purse stuff? Like phone numbers (or do you commit it to memory? My memory is shot with 3 kids, so this wouldn't work for me. I have a hard time telling hubby what I had for breakfast by the end of the day, much less memorizing phone numbers I might need that I don't use very often. LOL!) Then there's my "purse-size" bible and my wallet. Some lipstick. I have really downsized, and sometimes use the diaper backpack. What do you think?

Interesting, but pretty much everything you leave the house with not just purses can carry gross stuff back into your house. Even your bible could get tons of nasty stuff on it. Doesn't make that evil. I've learned you pretty much can find anything on the internet supporting your opinion on things for or against. Plus just think what gross things kids bring into the house, they touch everything. I am not saying you shouldn't wash or take care but it just seems people freak out about about things more lately. People lived a lot longer in the old day with all the gross stuff. Goodness.

This did disgust me, but I do remember reading a previous blog about how good germs are for you and how dirt is good and that one doctor let his kids eat off the waiting room floor, and how antibacterial soaps and things are harming our kid's immune systems.???

Sarah, why on earth are you afraid of a purse? I'd be more worried about the germs then the purse!! Your one silly lady! Do you not do diaper bags either? Just curious. Have a wonderful day!!

Hugs to you
