Your wife may not be Mary Poppins, but I can guarantee she's got A LOT of stuff in her purse.

A women's purse isn't just a place to carry her wallet, keys, and phone. That is simply the beginning. The bare minimum of a purse if you will. If that's all we needed to carry, we wouldn't need big purses. But we don't just need the bare minimum, we need space for everything we've ever needed in any given moment.

From snacks, to medical supplies, to stain remover, to sewing kits, to basically anything you can need. If you need it, a women nearby has it in her purse. I honestly feel bad for men only having their pockets to rely on.

We asked Rockford women what the STRANGEST thing in their purse is. Sure you have your every day basics. But sometimes something random ends up in your purse and it takes permanent residency for a while. And it makes no sense compared to the rest of the contents. These answers are hilarious. I have so many questions about so many of these responses.

I'm also inspired to put way more stuff in my purse. Let's unzip, unbutton, and untie some purses to look inside.

25 Of The Strangest Items Rockford Women Carry in Their Purse

The bigger the purse, the bigger the possibilities.

Here's some questions that I have based off that list.

  • Was the pitcher of beer full?
  • How big is this plush possum?
  • Do you use exercise dice at given time during the day?
  • How many tiny hands are in the purse?

This is your sign to clean out your purse this weekend.

LOOK: Milestones in women's history from the year you were born

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.
