Consider pockets, purses, backpacks, totes, and clutches. They vary in their sizes, zipper approach, use of leather, and the extent to which sequins and rhinestones are involved.

But common to all is that they allow everybody to carry bizarre sentimental crap and not worry about strangers judging them for it.


There's the usual phone, wallet, keys that always make the cut. Subtle weaponry makes an appearance in the daily luggage a good amount of the time too.

But after those few unanimously valued items come the strange things from one's past and the shameless hobby equipment.

This is Extremely Heartwarming

This is really lame honestly, but I always bring blank cards with me and give them to people that I see that are having a hard day or that have helped me with something.

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
