Let me just start by saying, I LOVE handbags! They are like some kind of strange security blanket, there is a 90% chance that anything I could possibly ever need is in there. And they are so darn cute!
HOWEVER… About 12 months ago I decided that I’d had enough of carrying a handbag around everywhere (mostly filled with useless junk 😂). I streamlined my ‘necessities’ and downgraded to a clutch. I broke up with my handbag.. and haven’t looked back! Let’s have a look inside shall we?
Firstly, I picked up this clutch from Colette after searching for the perfect size. I wanted it to be big enough to fit everything but not huge. I have seen some at Kmart as well since then which are really cute!
Inside I keep
- Coin Purse (plus a few hair pins)
- Card Holder (I love this for keeping all my store cards, it is from Strandbags)
- Notebook (Kikki K obviously 😂)
- Lip Balm
I absolutely LOVE not having carry a handbag around with me! It means I can throw this into the nappy bag or Hazel’s back pack. Or
when I am going out alone (haha 😂) if I ever go out alone again, I can just take my purse with me without having to carry a phone, wallet and keys.
Do you think this would work for you? Have you ever broken up with a handbag?
