5 Reasons Why Men Need Purses Too

October 12, 2021

I recently got a purse and it’s been the most gloriously convenient thing, ever. In fact, I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I think every person should have one, to hell with gender. The best part is, they come in different shapes and sizes so you can just pick the one that suits you. Here are 5 reasons why men should start carrying purses.

1. You can hide snacks there.

You know those moments when you wish you had a snack to munch on as your stomach is growling? One purse solves all of that. You can put biscuits, sweets, cookies or even swallow if you’re feeling adventurous.
