Handbag contents tag...

Beki asked me to show the contents of my handbag and although I am notoriously rubbish at taking up tags etc I just had to show you how organised and meticulous I am in my day to day life....
This is my current handbag, I love these CK messenger bag's - they stop me needing a baby bag if I'm only out for half a day or so, the only problem is they are sometimes a bit deep and I look slightly silly and like I am losing my arm trying to get something out :)
(note to self...need a bag organiser...)
This is my bag contents just dolloped out...

And on closer inspection, I spy with my beady eye...
an eco bag.
a pink purse (a gift from my mother in law and although it is Radley and not my cup of cha one bit, it is a great purse with a place for everything)
2 notebooks..one has been in my bag since New York and has the names and addresses of a couple of restaurants written in it and a list of Christmas presents left to buy, the other was made for me by Natasha, and has a list of library books I wanted to order. oh and 4 pens....and a bookmark.
A teeny diary.
a children's purse, a postman pat van, a camper van and a nappy.
2 lipsticks, lip balm, a concealer and a mascara.
pack of tissues and antibacterial hand gel - known as magic soap in this house.
usb memory stick - has photo's on that I need to get processed.
Terms of Endearment DVD free in Tuesday's Daily Mail that Mum gave me.
camera case..made by me last April from vintage CK fabric, still not finished needs a button or something to fasten it!!
manky tissue - yes its used!!,nearly empty packets of painkillers, pack of softmints with 1 sweetie left in..
key to mum's house....who knows where mine are...I won't know til I want to go out and need house and car keys, then I'll yell at everyone til I find them....
Nintendo DS and 2 styluses (????)
and a lovely christmas card bought at the castle museum the other day....
Tipping it out did shame me into sorting it out, and putting the red bag into the wash :)
I take after my Aunt, her handbag always came with a health warning, my mums on the other hand is uber organised and tidy!!!

The reason i've not been using my messenger bag is because I got fed up with losing my arm while trying to find my keys lol.
Your bag is exactly how I imagined it to be ;)

I am so very, very jealous of your CK bag. I get the catalog, but haven't found anyone here in the states who sells them. The s/h is shocking... but I am coming up with all sorts of rationalizations for why I need one for my birthday!

Bit like mine really - how do people keep an organised bag ?! That red ds stylus must be ours we have had missing for ages ;)

Sarah said...

Snap with the bag! I seem to find stylus's in the most strangest of places - but not yet in my bag!

I am very envious of your lovley bag!

Tabiboo said...

I have exactly the same one - bag that is, but in petrol blue!

I'm always rooting around in the bottom trying to find something and being only a little person it must look like I'm being swallowed by 'my bag' somedays!!

take care,

Amazing what a CK messenger bag can hold - am back to using mine again (like the across the body style for days out).

No idea whats in there but I have misland an o/h - wonder if he's hidden under the clutter?
