Handbags at dawn

Posted on Updated on

Does your handbag weight more than a small child? It doesn’t have to. Hoarding is usually the problem, but if you have a tray to empty the contents onto each evening it makes it easy to transfer a streamlined set of basics into the new one. Be wary of always carrying a huge farthingale of a handbag with most of your worldly goods inside, because it will be do damage to your back in the medium term. Here is a handbag checklist of the basics that you will need, and it is sensible to keep as near to this as possible rather than adding too many extra things:

  • Purse with at least £10-£20, a debit card and a credit card (only to act as emergency alternative payment if your debit card doesn’t work)
  • Driving licence or other photo ID
  • Mobile phone
  • House and car keys
  • Train or bus pass
  • Pocket pack of tissues
  • Tampons and/or panty liner
  • Dose of paracetemol
  • Plaster
  • Safety pin
  • Spare pair of neutral tights
  • Small brush or comb
  • Small umbrella
  • Pen
  • A spare five pound note and one pound coin (emergency parking or supermarket trollies)
