Spare pack of pills

I suffer from anxiety so I need to have the water and tablets with me or else I'd panic!

My work handbag has:
purse
phone
comb
handcream
hankies
keys
work lanyard
glass nail file

My non work handbag would have the same, minus the lanyard, and probably minus the comb.

My work drawer however contains practically the kitchen sink. Apart from work stuff, my personal drawer contains cereal bars, cutlery, mugs, instant pasta, cup a soups, hand cream, face cream, antihistamine tablets, indigestion tablets, paracetamol, ibuprofen, hydrocortisone cream for my dermatitis, spare nail varnish (at least 5 bottles), nail varnish remover, emery boards, socks, a couple of books, a spare phone charger, a jar of coffee...

Mobile
wallet

passport

small note book and pen



OK - I am the exception - because I hate handbags! Usually, if it doesn't fit in my pockets, then I don't really need it.

No no I hate those annoying shoppers! I normally pay by card and I'm out of there in a flash!

i don`t have a handbag but i take my camera bag everywhere. apart from camera gear i have:
two harmonicas
bike light
water pipe
toothbrush
antihistamines
painkillers
lighters
rizla
gaffer tape
loose coins
carrier bags
bits of paper and card
things i don`t like the look of
things i don`t like the look of and aren`t about to smell either.
I'm intrigued

I rarely bother with my bag anymore. I have this big Ness bag and all I have in it is my two notepads for uni, my purse, keys, pens, a few books (since some wee flyboy made off with my Kindle ) and maybe some water or my medication. If I'm not going far then I just chuck my phone and keys in my pocket. Nae danger.

I am also intrigued. One harmonica I get, but two?

Although to be fair I was told of a Thai sex show where a woman could use two harmonicas but I am praying this answer is a lot less debauched and more a case of "I teach people to sing so have to have different harmonicas for different notes and tones for them to hit."

Hahahaha! We used to have harmonicas and car horns to piss the dog off with (he used to howl when you played the harmonica - hilarious stuff), but alas he has shuffled off of this mortal coil. I was about to book a Thai restaurant tomorrow. There better be no harmonicas

I managed to blag it off of someone for free. I am a terrible, yet stylish lady

Some hilarious stuff here, I love that somebody is walking around with a packet of sweet pea seeds for those emergency occasions!

My bag consists of:
purse (with both English money and Euros - I go to Europe maximum once per year, why am I carrying this around?!)
Phone
One grotty tissue
Leaflets for a museum in Madrid I visited 4 weeks ago - it's in Spanish which I cannot speak...
A spoon
Car keys
House keys
Keys for work
Two pairs of gloves (come January I'll have my whole collection of gloves in there cause I'm too lazy to put them away properly)
A hat
Inhaler

Old broken headphones...
A whiteboard marker which has run out..
Endless receipts

Endless Kirby grips
Hair band

Bits of lint
