I am constantly astounded by the size of the handbags which many women carry. On one hand, I read about travelling overseas with only carry-on luggage, yet in real life I see handbags that look as though they could be used to travel – at least for a weekend.
I often ponder about what they carry in those huge bags. Have we been conned by yet another bizarre fashion trend which dictates that we carry these bags? What is so important that it has to go everywhere with us?
My bag bucks the general trend entirely. I bought it recently in an attempt to consciously downsize what I carry. I even went so far as to buy a smaller purse/wallet that would take up less space in the bag.
Main compartment – wallet, eco shopping bag, sunglasses in case, pen, handkerchief
Inside pocket 1 – car keys
Inside pocket 2 – mobile phone, railpass and access pass (work)
Inside compartment (zippered) – internet stick, USB drive, other essential keys, lipstick, migraine medication
This is the bag I use every day. The only exception is a small evening bag which I use a couple of times per year.
What is in your bag? Do you have a large bag?
