What's In My Bag?

I can't believe that I've been blogging for 2 years and have never done a 'What's in my bag?' post. It seems like the most classic, go-to post to do but I have just never got around to doing one. 

However I received an email in my inbox a few weeks ago, talking about a competition that were holding. They wanted to know what bloggers were carrying in their handbags, to see if we should be insuring our items. All they ask you to do is share what's in your handbag, count up how much everything costs and find a total. Taking part means that you get entered into a prize draw where you could win a Mulberry Bayswater handbag, purse and phone case. 6 runners up will also get £25 worth of vouchers for, courtesy of FashionPerks.

I can't think of a better time to do this post, can you? So let's go have a nosey...


It's funny that my handbag is one of the cheapest things I carry around with me. I have makeup that cost me more than this little baby did, but I love it. It is such a bargain and is a brilliant dupe for the Zara Shopper Bag. I think that you can still get it so if you want one, I would definitely recommend checking out your local branch.


So I've broken my bag down into four sections.
Total of this section is: £618.99

The total of section two is: £93.39


Total of section three is: £254.96

Total of section four is: £42.19

Complete total - £1,027.53

Say what?! I can't believe that I carry over £1000 worth of stuff in my handbag almost every day. That just seems crazy to me. I know that the average handbag costs around £850 but I still can't believe it.

For items such as house keys and car keys, I just used the recommended amount on Money Supermarket's post here

This has definitely been an eye opener for me. If you have done one of these posts, please let me know in the comments below so that I can check it out. I'd love to see what essentials that you carry around every day with you to see if I'm missing out on a trick :)


  1. Wow it's crazy to think all the small bits add just to that much! You've made me want to work out how much mine is! :') xo

    1. I know. Tell me about it. Stuff like House keys and car keys are a complete killer! xxo

  2. Oh I'd hate to think how much my bag is worth! That could be scary! Xx
