I never ever thought I would do one of these posts. I mean, why would anyone actually care? But then I remembered I did one about my bathroom cabinet last year and it had absolutely loads of views. I guess it shows how nosey we all are!!
I’ve read a few of these posts before (Yes, I am a nosey cow!) and they’re all lovely and clean and organised handbags. That’s not what you are going to see here. I have three children aged five and under…having an organised handbag is the least of my concerns!
What’s in my handbag?
The bag – I’ve randomly lost a box with some of my handbags in (think it was when we moved house), but I was so relieved that this one was safe. It’s a lovely bright coral colour and is big enough for all the crap I carry around on a daily basis. My mum and dad bought it me when they went on holiday to Ibiza last year.
My phone – Obviously, my phone goes everywhere with me – I feel lost without it!
My planner – My whole life is in here, and I feel lost without it. It has appointments, meetings, school events, birthdays, bills and all my deadlines in there. It’s big, but it fits perfectly into my bag.
Pens – I’ve always got plenty of pens in my handbag. Usually free ones – they always seem to write much nicer!
Business cards – You never know when you need to give one of these out!
Purse – This was a gift from my parents (I think!) so I don’t know where it came from. There’s never any money in there but there’s usually a few crumpled receipts, coupons and all the normal cards.
Notebook – I use this beautiful leather notebook from Pen Heaven to scribble down any blog ideas or thoughts when I’m out and about.
Handcream – I try to put this on whenever I have a spare few seconds, such as waiting in a queue or in the playground waiting to pick Harrison up. I love the smell of this one.
Screwed up school letters – I am really (usually!) good at reading letters from school as soon as Harrison brings them out, but they do end up screwed up in the bottom of my handbag!
Train tickets – left over from BML16 – yes, I really need to clear my bag out!
Blog Badges – One from Blog Camp and one from BML16.
Hand sanitizer – I have a thing about public toilets – I see so many people not washing their hands and then opening the door, which makes me feel a little bit queasy, so I always carry around some hand gel.
Dummy – We have spare dummies lying about everywhere. I keep one in my bag just in case we are out and need one.
Toy cars – All three boys can generally be pacified by a toy car. If we go somewhere to eat, or I know there’s going to be some waiting around, I can pull these out my bag and it buys me a few minutes peace!
Nappy – Just like the dummy – it’s there just in case of emergencies!
So, that’s what is in my handbag. What’s in yours?
