What's In Your Handbag / Purse?


Recommended Posts

I used to always have food on me, when I was first diagnoses with coeliac and didn't know so well what foods I could eat, I lived in terror of being hungry and having to watch other people eat! Then I emptied my handbag one day and found 3 different energy bars, an apple, a carton of juice, crisps and sweets :blush21:

Hi shyboots,

My kids know that if they go through my bag they will find something to eat. At least you and I will not starve in case of an emergency!

This is my purse on a light day... Typically there is also highlighters, candy, reading for class, a book of cross sums, advil, ora-gel, and water, sometimes a back up pair of contacts, plus whatever else I might need for that day. And now that we're moving into the cold season, gloves and lotion will become standard. On rare occasions when I wear make up I have a mini purse with all of my makeup related stuff and q tips that gets tossed in with everything else.

Lol, that reminds me, I cleaned out my bag the other day and I found 2 olive pips in there. It was when my kids tried an olive each at the market and there was no dustbin, so they just shoved them in my bag.

I rarely wear a purse so instead I have a bookbag (recently I bought one with wheels) because I can´t go to a place without bring a book to read and a notebook, plus 3,000 things I carry around. I´m very sluggish- and I don´t wear makeup unless it is lipstick because I have very dry lips.

What I have today:

Water cooler with water (need to drink about 2 liters because I have issues...) plus if I ever need water to take meds it´s there...

Planner 2012 of Jack from a nightmare before x-mas (I adore it)

A GMAT book

Paula, by Isabel Allende

A pouch filled with pens,highliter, stickis, bookmarks,pendrive, small ruler.

Another pouch with sanitary napkings, hand lotion, foot lotion (ballet!), lipstick, hair bands, razor, and I forgot what else.

A notebook in which I write ideas,stories, words I learn or other things that I learn that I find interesting.

Another notebook which is more like a diary.

A folder filled with documents that I might need

Another book that I´m simultaneously reading

A clipboard

An umbrella (very small, is super cute) in case it rains... Bronchitis wasn´t fun to live.

Ipod

Wallet

A small pouch with coins

My meds, Of course. I have a case that´s Mon-Sun and I have all my doses in it. I carry it with me everywhere. That´s my trick not to miss it.

And my keys!

Whenever I carry a purse (there are places I go that I need to wear them) is usually small and I include my med case, lipstick, small wallet, and my keys..... I´m not thaaat girly... I guess that´s why in ballet they consider me a hyppie, but in reality I´m apathetic...

Lol I have like nothing in my handbag.. I have 4, I always use the one who matches my outfit the best so yeah, I have as less stuff in there as possible because I don't feel like setting much stuff over. I usually just have my wallet, my cell, a bottle of water and tampons with me.
