    Default Where do you put your bag...

    when in the bathroom?

    I would say about half of the bathrooms at my school have stalls that actually have a hook on the door. The rest of the bathrooms either have some stalls that have hooks or have no stalls that have hooks. I have learned which bathrooms do and do not have hooks and avoid those that do not.

    While at dinner tonight I had to go to the bathroom and out of habit brought my purse with me (tonight I was carrying a non-designer bag). When I got in the stall I noticed no hooks so I immediately walked out (none of the stalls had hooks), handed my purse to my boyfriend, and went back to the bathroom.

    It drives me nuts that all bathrooms don't have hooks! I would never put my purse or backpack on the floor of the bathroom and there is no way I am going to set it on a chair or counter outside of the stalls if there is no one I trust to watch it. And you can't always set it on the toilet paper dispenser because it may be slanted funny...

    I am thinking I need to carry a plastic bag or something in my purse that I can set on the bathroom floor if there are no hooks. Even that weirds me out, but if it is a large ziplock bag I can always turn it inside out before putting it in my purse. Or make a little cloth bag that I can stuff the plastic bag into when done.

    What do you do?

    Well, being that most of my bags are on the smaller side, I typically just pee with my purse still on my shoulder.

    I had never thought of using my purse hook for that! I recently bought one and carry it with me too. Thanks for the tip!

    If there's no hook, it goes on the back of the toilet aft I put layers of tissue to protect it. Worst case scenario, on my lap. On the floor, NEVER!
    We once did an experiment of bacteria and fungi on common household places and items, umm let's just say I use tissue to turn the handle on loos and to open toilet doors esp public ones.
    Most of the time, I wait till I get home

    That's a scenario I try to avoid, public restrooms, but when it has to happen, I'll use the door hook. I have never used a stall without a hook.

    It stays on my shoulder or I have someone hold it.

    I avoid public restrooms! If I have to go into one and there is not a hook then I will just hold my bag.

    I would NEVER put it on the floor!!!

    I try to avoid them as much as possible but sometimes you can't. Usually the only time I use public bathrooms is at school, and I often have more than one thing with me. If it is cold enough I'll be carrying a coat and my backpack and my purse...

    The bathrooms at my school don't really have a back of the toilet that you can rest the purse on it (It is just a pipe with a flusher). That's why I was thinking I could lay something down before putting my purse or backpack on the floor. But I think I am going to try the purse hook first.

    Half the hooks in the bathrooms at my university are missing too....and I have the same problem. I have a huge Coach tote that I use everyday, and I can't easily hold onto it or keep it on my shoulder because it's really heavy. I've had to put it on the ground a few times If I have to do that, I will usually wipe the bottom down with disinfectant wipes when I get home.

    I usually try to avoid the whole public rest room thing til I get home. But if I have to go and there is no one to hold my bag, I usually try to hold it some way. I have even put my bags around my neck if the handles are long enough. I know I probably look very silly...But no one is looking and my handbags stay clean.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    Lol. I have never thought of doing that. Some, not all, of my purses are long enough where I could do this, so I will try to remember it the next time I am in a bathroom without a hook. Thanks for the tip. :D
