You know what you lug around in your six-pound bag all day, but ever wondered what essentials everyone else carries? We asked seven women for a peek inside their handbags. Take a look!
1. Chris, Teacher & Mother
Chris is a 43-year-old mother and teacher. She has the essentials, including hand sanitizer that happens to be inscribed with the name of a local hospice.
2. Heather, Foreign Service Officer
Heather is a 32-year-old foreign service officer. She carries a book on Arabic so she that can study the language throughout the day. The little blue chameleon perched on the book functions as a flashlight.
3. Karina, International Development Professional
Karina is a 32-year-old international development prefessional. She originally purchased this handbag as an accessory for a Mary Poppins costume, but ended up liking it enough to use on an everyday basis.
4. EB, Advertising Executive
EB is a 32-year-old advertising executive. The contents of her giraffe bag are a combination of functional and sentimental.
5. Cara, Pastry Cook
6. Lauren, Consultant
Lauren is a 23-year-old consultant who travels quite a bit. Because she uses this bag as a carry-on item on flights, she packs it with everything needed to work while traveling.
7. Tania, College Student & Freelance Photographer
Tania is a 20-year-old college student and freelance photographer. When she is not attending classes or out shooting, she packs light, but brings a cup of pineapples for a snack.
