"My philosophy is, 'stay ready,'" says Jenny McCarthy, 40. "So I carry as much s--t as I can." Inside the $34.99 Caboodles makeup bag that functions as her purse: An emergency blank check, a spare bra -- and her vibrator. Other just-in-case items?
"I keep Hershey's Kisses and M&M's. I find a lot of them melted into the spare change at the bottom of my bag."
"I carry Byron Katie's book I Need Your Love -- Is That True? I've read it 150 times. It's the relationship bible. Although . . . I'm still single."

"My mom gave me this St. Joseph statue. I wasn't sure what to do with him, but I'd feel guilty leaving him in a drawer, so Joseph is living in my purse."
