Julie's Creative Lifestyle

What is Inside my Bag?

Wednesday, August 6, 2014





I think we call all say that we carry around too much stuff in our handbags and I'm one of them.  You have to move around a lot of things to get to the bottom of my bag and it can get heavy at times.  I sometimes carry around other people's things too.  This is why I'm going to clean out my bag at least once a week.  Are you guilty of a messy bag or is your bag neat and organized?

I'm joining Jen from JENerally Informed and Celeste from Leapfrog and Lipgloss for Mommy Reality Challenge #11 - Invasion of the Purse Snatchers for this fun link party.

  1. Hi Julie,

    The older I get, the less I want, both in my purse and in my home! My purse contains only the most necessary things, which are: my wallet, my keys, my cell phone, a hair clip, a tiny compact mirror, and some lip gloss. That's it! I hate carrying around a heavy bag. Thanks for sharing this interesting post!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. I need a new bag, which is always a challenge, take me forever to find the one I want. Im with Julie, I dont like as much in my bag either, Im always trying to remove things that are unnecessary to carry. I dont have the energy to carry a heavy bag anymore.
    Thanks for stopping by this weeks #ww
    Have a great day!

  5. Oh, I love your bag! I also love how calm and collected it looks on the outside, but slightly chaotic on the inside. That's some mommyreality right there ;)

  7. Your purse is so cute! I have the same problem with carrying other people's stuff around, It seems like most of what's in my purse belongs to other people, but I am the one who ends up carrying it around forever! So glad you linked up this week :)

  8. If I carry a big bag anywhere, everyone gives me their stuff to toss in there. I've since learned to go small on trips or when we're out and about. ;)

  9. The bigger my bag is, the more stuff I end up with...SO I try to go small and keep the clutter to a minimum! It doesn't always work!! ;)

  12. My word! You have a very tidy bag my lovely. Mine tends to be full of my daughter's rubbish that she prefers to put in there rather than a bin... what is that all about?! To find my purse or phone is like trying to find a needle in a haystack :-)

  13. Love your purse. I try to keep just the essentials in my bag, but the "essentials" add up! I wish I could carry a smaller bag, but just can't. Have a great week Julie!

  16. I like your bag, Julie! I change my purses often, so they get cleaned out with each change, so that helps. It's surprising how quickly things can accumulate, though! I am guilty of throwing bits of 'trash' in my bag and then when I try to find my wallet all those little bits fall out. Not a pretty sight at the checkstand. :) xo Karen

  17. I also change my bags often and I only carry the most necessary stuff. I try to keep it light and never overfill it.

  18. Oh I'm totally guilty of that. My bag is sometime so heavy that my back starts aching(I carry my office laptop+ other junk) I like big bags with lots of pockets. :-)
