What's In Your Purse?

I do not know about you, but don't you ever wonder if your girlfriend carries as much stuff in their purse as you do?I know for certain I do! So here is what is in our purse.... What's In Your Purse?

For fun Patty and I decided to take this quiz... What does your handbag say about you?


A little about my purse. Well, my mom is 1 out of 4 sisters, she is the eldest and my mom had me at a pretty young age. That means that her sisters are pretty young and not too far on age from me. I grew up with my mom's sisters and they were like my older sisters. I love having such a sweet and close relationship with them, and I get quite a bit of hand me downs (times 4), and purses are one of those things. Although this isn't a hand me down, one of my aunts (the youngest one) gives me a purse once a year (christmas or birthday). Long story short, this cute red/orange purse is from my aunt, if I am not using this one I am using one of the other purses my other aunts give me.

And what does it say about me?

Your motto is: "Be prepared." You don't like to be surprised by anything.
- You are a very creative person. Your life tends to be a whirlwind, but you always seem to pull it together.

Unlike Patty's purse below, mine is like mayhem. Believe it or not this is a condensed version. My phone is not even pictured in this. But I will say, all of these things have come in quite handy not only for myself but for my husband, friends, and sometimes even strangers.


Let me first tell you that this is a very special purse to me.  I always buy cheap bags and no kidding in a year they will start to fall apart.  So this past Christmas I was hinting to the hubby about this Steve Madden bag that was much needed.  Way more than I would ever spend on a purse for myself  already and instead I opened this beauty.  I was shocked that he picked out a Coach bag for me!  Wow that man amazes me.  It melted my heart that he went above and beyond what I wanted to bless me with such a gorgeous bag.  It smells really good too I love it.  I still love it.  

And what does it say about me?

-You are practical and down to earth.  You tend to be a rather reserved and quiet person. 
-You are comfortable with who you are.  You don't hide anything.

Now my purse use to carry a million and one things but I have really simplified it considering this bag isn't that big.  Once I got this bag I decided no more snacks, drinks or baby stuff so Cindy carries her stuff in her own backpack [most of the time].  

And if you are wondering what stroller/and shopping cart straps are, they go inside the side rings of your purse and then clip together so your purse can hang right in the front of the shopping cart or on a stroller. 

Just by seeing the contents of the two purses, surely we think that the contents of a purse does say quite a bit about a woman. What are some must haves in YOUR purse? (We would love to know, so please let us know in the comments below.)


  1. I keep a mini notebook!! Always I love jotting down tasks in it. Something which I must do later in the day and I am out , I jot it down. I love the pleasure of writing tasks and striking it off when its done :D

    1. Yeah I love my notebook! I feel like my brain will explode without it! :) Thank you for sharing! -Dannielle

  2. Wow your purses are empty compared to mine. To keep it all organized and at hand I made a custom insert for my Miche purse. I holds my lipstick with the color showing up. No taking out a makeup bag and fishing around for the shade I want. I carry a pocket knife and jewelers loop. I carry real handkerchiefs. I have so many drugs its more like a traveling first aide kit. That's just tip of the iceberg.

    1. That insert sounds awesome!!! I actually am planning to make an insert too! It is on my to-do list in my notebook! ;) I love the real hanky! (I use to use real ones too when I was little). What is a jewelers loop?

      Thank you for sharing Mary, it brought a smile to my face!


  3. Wow, I never thought women can bring a lot of things in one handbag. =) I recently read an article about handbag insurance and I wondered what is it about. Then looking at your things,now I understand the validity of that policy. =) Thanks for he post!
