I was reading a really well-written article the other day by another blogger. She used the title ‘The contents of my handbag’ and listed such a range of diverse objects it really made me giggle. So taking up the same idea, I’ve decided to share the contents of my handbag with you because I need to de-clutter the bloody thing. It weighs at least 5 pounds in weight and I’ve got to the point where I cannot find anything within it. My partner sighs now when I delve into its cavernous depths to try and find things, so it’s now become a chore when I have to search for my stuff.
I’ve tipped the whole lot out into two piles, consisting of necessities and crap:
The important stuff:
Glasses case (containing a pair of cheap reading glasses from the pound shop. These need chucking)
Small hair brush
A piece of kitchen roll
A carrier bag
One power bank (without a lead; how pointless is that!)
An extra mobile phone
One lipstick and eyeliner
French phrase book
17, yes 17 till receipts from shops
5 other lipsticks (I need just the one when I’m out)
Spot concealer (Handy, but not necessary)
3 more small notepads
A small plastic pockety thingy that should contain a small pair of scissors and a nail file. It is empty, therefore useless.
2 more power banks, still without leads
An empty tube of handcream
A pencil and 2 more pens
3 fluffed up polo mints (Vom!)
A playground whistle, that I only need when I’m at work
An out-of-date library card
An empty liquid bottle for my e-ciggie
14p in coppers
A broken plastic fidget spinner
A Tin of beans (Yes, really, I forgot to take it out earlier on)
A pair of earplugs that only work in one ear
A quarter bag of teddy bear Haribo. Been there 2 weeks!
and lastly, a third of a small can of hairspray, which I don’t really need.
This article has served a very good purpose. It’s enabled me to clean out the crap and my bag is at least 2lbs lighter.
Go for it; have a clear out!
