As an Aussie the pocketbook/purse confusion is so interesting.  Here we are more likely to have a handbag instead of what I think those in the US call purse. This is the bag that we keep everything in, make-up, hairbrush, chewing gum, phone, etc.   In our handbags you would find our purse (although sometimes called wallet) which is where we keep our cash, coins, and credit cards, store memberships etc, and licences. 
My thoughts from my over-exposure to US culture was that a pocket-book was most equivalent to what craftylittlemonkey crafted, so I did some googling.  You americans like to make things confusing, regional dialects, apparently it depends where you are in the country as to what you will call something.

haha i love the confusion over a pocket book. to me and the people im know it is a wallet essentially but carries a check book and check book log as well as cash cards and ids.

that really is a fabulous package that any body would be happy to recieve.

now we all have alot to live up to =]

I was just thinking about the regional differences in language today. In some areas, we call soda pop "soda", in some areas we call it "pop", and in some areas we call it "coke" regardless of whether it's Coca Cola or not. There's also us Southerners that like to say y'all. :p

my ex-mother-in-law calls her purse a pocketbook and she is from New York. Yes, we Americans do like to make things confusing.
