The Minimalist Wallet Series: Kristen from The Uncomplication Project

What is in Kristen’s Purse

As for the contents, I didn’t clean out anything, it’s really what’s in my purse. My water bottle also makes the picture since it goes with me everywhere, similar to the blanket Linus carries around in the cartoon Peanuts.

I don’t even remember when I got my Little Purse, but it was probably over five years ago. I’ve tried two other Big Purses in the meantime, but I keep coming back to my Little Purse. It’s about 9” long, 6” tall and 3” deep. I love it because it’s the perfect size for an everyday, on-the-go purse, but it can also fit inside a larger bag or backpack.

A little about Kristen

I live in the Midwest, I work with databases & maps, & I like hiking Colorado 14ers every summer with my dad.

I also write for The Uncomplication Project which is all about Keeping it simple, Enjoying and Experiencing Fullness in Life, Relationships, God and Everything Else.
