I have no idea how it all fits in my everyday bag. I'm just about to look in my little bag.

More one leg glasses,
old bus tickets/receipts - dated from roman era this time,
Italian Lira,
dodgey looking toothbrush,
3 memory sticks - wondered where they had got to
notepad,
pencils,
tampons,
camera lens,
packet of crumbs - shortbread in a previous life?,
ear phones,
socks,
tea bags,
dog treats,
packet of sweet pea seeds,
lump of rosin - many years since I picked up a fiddle,
yoyo.
light bulb,
hair clips and bobbles,
Usual unidentifiable fluffy things,
toothpicks,
camping salt and pepper set.

Dear gawd - what would an analyist make of the contents of my bags?
The yoyo and light bulb intrigues me

Just as an outside opinion from a guy, I know when I'd be going out away from home, and staying elsewhere, I need my washbag.

Though some of the items mentioned are a little trivial, but I do like the idea of small first aid kits being mentioned - sounds like the person is responsible and thinking of others and I like that.

Anyway, back to the trivials, I'd like a girl to carry a small can of hairspray, cremewax, a comb and a little mini hairdryer

These are in every girl's handbags in copious amounts!

BTW, I love this thread! It must be funny for any men reading. But a lot of the stuff we have in our handbags is common amongst all of us.

For the people who carry around their passport - why do you do this?

Purse, car and house keys, cheque book, two mobile phones, packet of cigarettes, two cigarette lighters, tiny notebook and pen, spare pen, work ID badge, mirror, lip balm, lipstick, cleaning cloth for spectacles, packet of nurofen, ipod and earphones, Bluetooth headset, sat nav, tin of mints.

It's a small handbag, downgraded from my "suitcase" size (as a friend called it) and still lots of room in it. I can fill that.

I rarely bother with handbags, but have a pink leopard-print back pack. I only use it when shopping (in which case no iPad) or researching when it contains:

Pencil
Propelling Pencil
Sharpener
Rubber
Notebook
iPad
Purse
Hand sanitiser
