There was a time in my life where I carried a handbag exclusively for aesthetic reasons. I'd lug around a 2nd hand shoulder bag with straps 2 feet too long for my height and follow Momma though the grocery store or to her Dr's appointments. I never carried much of value in it, just a couple of my parent's expired credit cards and some chewing gum. And then I grew up and learned that handbags were actually meant to be the modern woman's Sonic Screwdriver/ MacGyver's tote. I was expected to have just about anything necessary to solve just about any crisis, on hand, at any given time.
What Daughter Says: Stop carrying around bulky heartburn remedies. Taking one Nexium 24 HR a day can give you all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn.
