I went through a few packrat phases during adolescence. I had a penchant for carrying unnecessary things in my purse for no rhyme or reason.
  1. Garlic press
    I enjoy eating raw garlic. I loved it so much that I kept a garlic press handy. It was the ultimate man repeller so I had to stop.
  2. Stress balls
    They were promotional tools in the office I used to work in.
  3. Toilet paper
    My friend made me carry a roll of toilet paper to a music festival in case the stall didn't have any.
  4. First aid kit
    Overly cautious. I end up using the kit less than once a year.
