Which of the items do you carry in your handbag?

The items I carry in my handbag are, notepad and pen, wallet, umbrella, hand sanitizer, powder compact, lip gloss, tissue, phone, phone charger, painkiller, slippers and sanitary pad when I am on.

Why don’t you have the others?

I feel they are not necessary. I think the ones I have are the ones that are important. It will be embarrassing going around with pant. What if someone checks my bag and sees it.

Which will you include in your handbag if you had the chance?

I will include mint gum and pocket spray. Due to my job, I have to constantly smell fresh. Sometimes I have early morning appointments and most times I wouldn’t have had any food to eat, the mint gum would be necessary for fresh breath. And also the pocket spray is for a refreshing scent against sweat.

Which of the items do you carry in your handbag?

The items I carry about in my hand bag are wallet, notepad and pen, mint gum, tissue/handkerchief, phone charger and sometimes painkiller. You would find wallet, notepad and pen, and umbrella in my bag 99 percent of the time, but charger and painkiller, 60 percent. I have mint gum for when I am bored or after a meal. I carry a tissue/handkerchief because I have catarrh by default. An umbrella because the weather can change at any time, phone charger for if I’m going out for a while and my phone battery isn’t fully charged.

Why don’t you have the others?

I don’t have the others because they are not so necessary. Moreover, if I do, it would mean I’d have to start carrying travelling bag in place of handbag.

Which will you include in your handbag if you had the chance?

If I had the chance to put one more item, it would be sunshade.
