This is .....'The Contents of my Handbag!'

Posting early again, it's still half term - gotta grab the internet when I can!

I bought my handbag last year to go on holiday with, so it needed to be largish with a long strap, and even though the piping looks a bit sorry for itself, I still really like it.
So here are the contents of my bag, in no particular order;
my purse, cheque book, random business card, mirror with box of pins on top, leaflet for my alteration business, receipt, flyer for a shop called Bargain Fabrics (still haven't been there!), lip balms (don't know why there are so many, but one is a nice one Mr.M bought me), lip gloss, various pens, spare car keys (one slightly bent, one only works if it feels like it), hairgrips, pretty tape measure (still in there from measuring baths we can't afford the other day), note book (covered in sample wallpaper from B&Q, place to jot random ideas and measurements of things we can't afford to buy!), phone (apparently it's retro darling, as opposed to out of date...), glasses, bag I made to keep glasses in that doesn't actually protect them at all (bad idea!), which is sitting on another bag/pocket I made from my favourite bit of Toile de Jouy to keep passports and stuff in and poppers to the inside of handbag (good idea!), which is sitting on top of a pink tote/shopping bag that is never actually in there when I need it!
So that's the lot, and there is no way I'm putting it all back in!!
Thanks to Angela for starting this Meme, I can't wait to see if everyone else carries around as much junk as I do!

I took the opportunity to have a bit of a clean out too.
I used to have your retro phone - it's a beauty. I hate my "new" (over 2 years old) phone.

There's a lot of things in your handbag for sure, but quite useful! My sister had the same phone you are using too.

Oooh yeh... You are definitely not alone!

Isn't it amazing the amount of stuff we manage to carry around every day! And you can't do without any of them either I'm sure. Great topic. I'm off to be nosey and see what everyone else has displayed.

I'm do for a new phone this year and just can't wait to learn a new one - yet again. Ugh.
