What's In My Handbag?

You may have seen a few of these posts recently, because MoneySupermarket.com are asking bloggers "What's In Your Handbag?". Although it's nice to have a nosey into other people's handbags, the real idea is to find out how much we carry in there, and just how much that stuff is worth!

So let's see what what I'm packing!


This is my work/day-to-day bag where I chuck everything (as you can see!), so let's see what it, and its contents would cost to replace:

The big stuff
Juicy Couture Daydreamer handbag = £200
iPad 2 = £429
iPhone 5 (including headphones) = £529
Debenhams Purse (including contents) = £40

Makeup stuff
Hello Kitty makeup bag £15
Revlon comb = £1
Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Heather Moon = £16.50
MAC Lipstick in Hot Tahiti = £14
Bare Minerals Natural Lipgloss in Fruit Cocktail = £14
Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin' Watermelon = £16
Max Factor Crème Puff Powder Compact in Translucent = £6
Girl2Go makeup brush = £3
Nails Inc Professional Nail File = £6
Vaseline Sun Protection Lip Therapy =£2
No7 Precision Lips Pencil in Plum = £6.75
No7 Precision Lips Pencil in Blush = £6.75
Benefit Speed Brow = £13
Tweezerman Wild Slant Tweezers = £21.50
No7 Exceptional Definition mascara (trial size) = £4
Zara Black rollerball perfume = £5
Japanese girl mirror = Gift, price unknown
Bow hair clip =£3

Other stuff
SD card = £5
USB drive = £5
Extra chewing gum = 50p
Eraser = 50p
Star Wars Moleskin diary = £15.50
House keys bundle = £130
Hairband = £1
Headphone tidy = £3
Car keys bundle = £150
3D glasses = 80p
Bic 4 Colour pens (2) = £6
Pencil = 50p
Halls Soothers = 50p
Fisheye lens for iPhone camera = £1

Grand Total = £1670.80

Holy smokes! That's a lot more than I thought!

The big items weren't a surprise, but my makeup bag and contents are worth over £150! To be fair, I probably have too much in there anyway, but there's no way I would have guessed at all that.  And the keys are another surprise, but they would cost a lot to replace, especially my car keys and the Yale keys I have.

Have a go at calculating the value of your handbag and its contents and let me know if you're as surprised as me!

  1. It's pretty amazing how much we ladies carry about! I barely use half of it but if it wasn't there I'd need it! :D
