The Horror of my Handbag Contents

OOhh now its time to embarrass myself by revealing the contents of my Handbag!!
I have been tagged by Crafty Helen at Home Helen at Home to show you what my handbag contains.
So without further ado here is my handbag.

It’s a big black paintent bag which holds a great deal!!
Its fab when I have to go to London for work as it holds folders & notebooks galore.

So inside my handbag what do I find well, a smaller handbag!!
This is one I have been using at the weekend, so I did rather lazily just pop it in to the bigger bag on Monday when I was heading off to the office.
Here are the contents of the 2 bags.

Rather large Purse/Wallet
Small CK coin purse
Cheque Book, yes they do sometimes come in useful
Savings bank books
2009 Diary
2010 Diary, I haven’t transferred all my addresses over yet, I know so unorganised!!
Make Up Bag – Bronzer, Brush, Mirror etc
Hand Warmers
Hat – I hate getting wet hair or cold ears
Chewing gum
Sun Glasses
Car Keys
Perfume – Alexander McQueen Kingdom
Lip Gloss
CK Lip Balm
Hand Sanitizer
4 different hair grips/slides
12 green buttons taken off a jumper at the CS last week
2 Gisele Graham hearts my MIL gave me today when we popped round
So what a horrific amount of stuff I carry around with me, not to mention the pile of receipts, tissues & post it notes that also flew out when I poured it all out on the kitchen table.
I will now endeavour to streamline said contents, and I think change bags to a slightly smaller one that will mean I don’t stuff as much stuff in it!!
I wanted to finish by showing you these beautiful flowers that my MIL had on her dining room table today aren’t they gorgeous.

Have a good week

I must have the tiniest handbag on the planet! I hardly carry anything! I just carry keys, coin purse, credit card and mobile - BORING! I don't like heavy bags when I am walking home!

Ha ha! What a lot of things! I have done a contents of my handbag too, and there is not quite as much as yours, but then it was a new and carefully kept (so far!) handbag! suzie. xxx

I do exactly the same pop a smaller bag in a bigger bag. It saves all that changing around and forgetting things.


Kelly said...

Ha ha I too have a smaller bag in a big one! I still forget stuff though!

I see nothing wrong with the contents of your bag/s!!! You have everything covered!! Wet, cold, shopping, germ warfare!!!

Michelle said...

Those flowers are stunning!! Your picture of your handbag contents made me smile as it could have been mine! Especially the tin of mints!! I always carry them round with me. Thanks for your lovely comment on the kitchen I hope to get it sorted later in the week and post some new pics. Michelle x

I change my bags frequently, today it is the Chiswick flowers saddle bag, just changed from the silver sequin Primarkio from Chrimbo, I must say though that I carry the barest minimum but always some spare Tesco CK shoppers as you never know what you might find and "Jamaica Inn" as you never know how long you maybe hanging around!
I do like your big bag it looks a bit like one that I had from M&S!
Have some nice finds at the CS this week!
