10 most common things in a UK handbag

Mar 16, 2014

Diamond, an insurance company in the UK, recently asked 2000 women, "what's in your handbag?" They found that women, on average, carry more than $450 worth of stuff. Almost 10% of women carry more than $1000.

According to the survey, these are the top 10 most common items UK women carry in their handbags:
  • wallet
  • phone
  • pens
  • tissues
  • car keys
  • lip balm
  • brush
  • lipstick
  • lotion
  • umbrella
One woman even had a voodoo doll in her bag. We've all been there...

I'd venture to guess this is about right for US women as well, with the exception of the umbrella. In general it isn't as rainy here, and that's an extra pound or two you can leave out. I personally have four things I can't live without, how about you?

More on this study from Bucks Free Press.

Featured above is the Large Paley Tote from Radley, a UK company. I'm not a giant fan (Radley reminds me of Brighton in the US), but I do like the Medium Paley. If you fall in love with something, Radley delivers to the US for a fee.
