Not Just A Mom- Whats in Your Handbag

 Hey loves. Happy Monday. Even though it feels like summer is just getting started we are on our last full week of summer break and I have all the last minute things planned. Today we are doing Cedar Point again, hopefully the weather keeps changing. Tomorrow we have a play date planned at the park (fingers crossed it goes well with 7 kids and two adults)

This month we are taking a Look What's In Our Handbags.

I have gone through phases of what size purse I carry around. When we were still in diapers and I didn't want to carry a diaper bag I had a bigger purse. When I worked out of the house I had a bigger purse with a lot of items just in case. Now I just grab my Dooney and Burke Disney crossbody.  I got this purse for Mother's Day two years ago and it still looks brand new. 

There is a front pocket and a big zippered pocket. 

The randomness of items in my front pocket. Cough drops, a hair tie, pens, pencil. Maybelle lipstick,  and long wear lipstick

Main part of my purse. There is a small little pocket in the main part of the purse. In there I have my van key, chapstick, and my pink wallet that has all my cars, id and cards. 

Bracelet keyring, contact rewetting drops, ibuprofen, allergy meds, deodorant, Brian's business cards, Frozen bandaids, butterfly closure bandages, beach bar, and energize packet

When I am going grocery shopping I also have a mini clipboard that I put in the front pocket with my grocery list. 

I am very basic with what I carry. Pretty much just the essentials. I have a Loungefly Disney mini backpack that I will take if I need more space, need snacks or activities for the kids etc. 

What do you carry in your handbag?

  1. I never thought to carry deodorant as a daily thing but that's so smart!

    1. I use to just have one in my car but it always seemed to get broken. and with a preteen daughter it is a must.

  2. You're ready for anything, and still keep to a relatively small bag! I like the Disney characters on it.

  3. Of course you have a Disney bag! So cute!!

    1. At least when I leave it sit somewhere you know it is already mine

  4. Have a fab last week of your summer break.
    What a cute bag you have. You do carry a lot of little things around but they are all needed!

  5. You have such a cute bag and it seems to hold a lot of items that you need! I really enjoyed this post and looking at everyone is putting in their bags.

  6. What a cute bag! It doesnt look that big but obviously it has room for all the things. I also go back and forth between wanting a really small purse or a big roomy bag.
