In Response to Re: A real bargain for housewife:
Carrying a pocket book, purse, whatever it is called now, has become a chore with advancing age. Arthritis makes it difficult and the bag is getting heavier as age advances. Most of my friends now carry the quilted cloth purses to " lighten the load."

Funny how it gets heavier as time goes on. My father used to tease me about carrying an extra transmission for my truck in my purse. i think it depends on what part of the country you are from what you call it. We always called it pocket book. Here in the midwest it is purse. I always thought of a purse as a little thing, as in change purse.
I got a nice canvas type shoulder bad from LL Bean on huge sale and I love it. There's places for everything and it is great for travel
