Purse, hairbrush, keys, phone, lipbalm - that's all. I've just been out without my 14 month DD and it was a treat to take a normal size handbag and be able to find things!
The change bag however...that's a different story. If I look hard enough I suspect I would find everything I have ever lost in there.

I currently have The Satanic Bible in mine.

Do I win?

OonaLoona2 Thu 06-Oct-16 13:24:05

My bags not massive, just a cath kidston tote type thing.
Ah baffled, I remember the changing bag days well - I'm not long out of them. In fact I think I just stuffed it in a cupboard without emptying it or checking what was inside!

Topseyt Thu 06-Oct-16 13:26:50

I'd lost my work keys once so my boss tipped out my handbag before I could stop her. Turns out I had a sprouting potato in the bottom blush. Other notable items were, a full set of Teletubbies, a pair of child's pants and a Christmas bauble (it was the summer)

I am currently carrying (amongst loads of other shite) 400 Brazilian Reais (about £70) despite it being 6 years at least since I went to Brazil. No idea why I have them!

I actually cleared my handbag out yesterday, it was a mess of old reciepts, shopping lists, the occasional chocolate bar wrapper, a small pack of screws, 4 pens in varying working order, and 3 forks (from when I have taken a lunch to work and then dumped the fork in my bag and promptly forgotten it. The Tupperware luckily always makes it back out, I am not a total slattern...)
