What’s in my handbag (2020)

I’ve always loved these types of videos and blog posts. So let’s just pretend we’ve gone back in time to when this was one of the most popular things you could find online.

I don’t carry that many things with me – which 15-year-old me would’ve been shocked by. This is everything I carry around with me on a daily basis:

  • kindle
  • wallet
  • keys
  • phone
  • burt’s bees lipbalm
  • power bank
  • headphones
  • sunglasses
  • Stojo reusable coffee cup

Depending on where I’m going, some other things might find their way into my bag, namely:

  • camera
  • tissues
  • a protein bar
  • S’well water bottle (this often lives in my car)
  • mints

And that’s it. What do you carry around with you on a daily basis?

    I still carry diapers and baby food. I think I’ll never get my purse back)

    I carry around my iPhone, iPod, lotion, a powerbank, my wallet, makeup, and candy. You never know when you need the candy

      Candy is always a good idea 🙂

    I always carry some sort of hand sanitizer with me, especially these troubled days.

    I am totally with you on the kindle, the lip chap, and a snack (and these days, Purell)! My water bottle is always attached to me, so often outside my purse and solidly in my hand! Fun post!

      Haha, yeah, hand sanitizer had made its way into my bag and car as well!

    My purse these days is huge, as I carry everything I need in it. Being a soccer mom, I gotta be ready for any incidentals.

    A camera is a must!!! I used to rely a lot on my phone cam but it is not enough…Now I have an awesome Nikon that I use to make memories.
