Streamlined - The "No Purse for 30 Days Diet"

About a month ago I had a discussion with work peeps regarding how much "stuff" people bring to work. I'm a self-admitted minimalist (always have the smallest purse with the fewest amount of things inside said purse) but I wanted to challenge myself and maybe (?) prove a point at the same time.

Disclaimer - I'm not a "girly-girl" who depends on lots of makeup or hair accoutrements to get thru my day. Don't wear makeup and work in an extremely casual environment where jeans are my go-to attire du jour. I also keep toothpaste, a toothbrush and dental floss in my work cubby.

For the last month, this is what I've carried to work in my pockets :

* Cell phone (the case is standing in for the phone since I used it to take this picture) in the front right pocket

* Keys - front left pocket

* Burt's Bees Lip Balm - front left pocket

* Canvas card holder - back right pocket (not in the best condition, but it was a freebie so that counts for something) (Btw, I'm frugal too!)

Pockets

 

Wasn't too difficult of a transition and I actually liked not carrying anything else into work. It's made me rethink carrying a purse to begin with and has really streamlined my life.

Would you / could you go on a No Purse Diet? What would be your imagined obstacles?
