As many as one wants to buy. What difference does this make? Stupid poll question.

I have one that is made from a tanned armadillo skin--tail, claws, and all. It has beady little red rhinestone eyes. I probably have about 8-10 purses, but mainly use two of those--both leather. The others are for very specific situations (fancy occasions, such as weddings, etc.).

I have several and am not a fashionable person. I have a large one that will hold books and food for airplane trips, then a mid size that actually fits in the large one. I have a fanny pack for when I am a tourist. Then a cute little sack type purse for the rare evening out and I am dressed half decent. Then an extra mid size one because I don't like to shop and found the perfect mid size one on sale and bought two. I am hard on purses. I use to joke that if I was left on a desert Island I would want my mom's purse, she carried food and clothes for the kids, good safety pins, gum, her business papers.kleenix, and slippers because she loved to take off her heels. I think motherhood makes many of women pack animals and the guys who just don't get it ain't carrying their share of the load.

I supplement my income sewing purses and selling them locally in the KC area whenever I'm not busy with upholstery work or when I have scrap material to use. I think the poll is very hard to quantify. I sell my purses ranging from 30$ to 75$ of course you could find higher and lower prices just about anywhere. It will never be anyone's business how much of any non-contraband item you own. I suggest you vote 12+.

Right now I have at least 30 purses that I personally made with excess material as well as 5 that I have given to my girlfriend as gifts. Normally I throw away scrap before it turns into a mountain but I'm saving some of the waste which I create by utilizing the excess fabric somehow. I do in effect own them because I owned the fabric with which I made them; which includes me in this nonsense.

If you say you have a problem with people owning too many purses its a Fact that you are prejudiced. You who would judge a person because of the number of a non-contraband intimate item they happen to own.

As many as she wants, as long as it's for holding her own money.

one. That's all you can carry at one time. When it wears out, replace it.

This sounds like one of those questions they would have asked Paul Lynde on the old Hollywood Squares shows......

A woman rich with pursed is a woman rich with options. Same goes for shoes, belts and scarves.

Autie~ tell your wife to put garbage (or those little baggies of doggie doo, after the nightly walk with the pooch) in one of the old, worn-out purses, then leave it sitting in the car, window open, in a parking lot (say....WalMart... or the Great Mall...) Meantime, the two of you watch the fun with binoculars from a distant vantage point. As soon as some low-life steals the purse, you head back to your car and leave (before the lowlife opens the purse a few blocks away and realizes s/he's been jacked).

So much fun, Mrs. Autie will want to repeat the performance with all the crummy old purses. Creative way to clean out the closet and teach a lesson to a d-bag! You can even leave a note in there for a more personal touch.

I won't count the purses in my wife's closet if she don't count the guns in mine . . .

I was going to say "8".

So should I select "4-8" or "8-11"?

As many as one wants to own.

Next question, how many guns should someone own?

Answer, as many as one wants to own.

How many cars should one own?

None.

One word: Pockets

Most of the crap women carry around in their purses is never used and I'm tired of being banged into with huge purses carried by oblivious people in a crowded place or when in line anyplace. Do you really need an extra set of clothes or whatever it is you keep in there when you go to the grocery store? Do you need to reapply all your makeup when you are at a movie?

And pockets don't generally get stolen.

Gets off soapbox.

I think you should be able to purse your lips as often as you feel necessary, what is this Russia?

This is an interesting question. For a woman - one purse. Most guys (see below for the caveat) only have one wallet, and use that until it disintgegrates.

Ordinarily I would have to say that a man - a real man - should never have a purse. But then, this is Larryville and to be properly sensitive, of COURSE Larryvillain males should have purses. Lots of purses. Pink ones, crimson & blue ones, sweet, fluffy purses, etc. I mean, the proper Larryvillain males are metrosexual and sensitive and sweet - whatever that should look like.

Otherwise, in any other part of the country (excepting maybe, San Francisco or Boulder, CO), men should NEVER have purses.

It's called a European shoulder bag. It was a gift.

How can anyone vote when there are no choices to vote for. As far as I am concerned 1 purse is enough for any woman or man.
