I don't know about you, but I know that I usually have no clue what is in my handbag. It's not because I don't care, but because I go from bag to bag, transferring the contents of it, without taking a second glance.
It's easy to overlook just how much your handbag is worth. I don't mean just the bag itself, but once added up, how much your bag, phone, wallet, keys, lipglosses etc are worth. Us girls, and even men and their manbags, don't really know how valuable these satchels are, that we carelessly chuck around a tube or train, leave sitting on a bench next to us and walk around like a little lifeline organ hanging by our hip!
Today I teamed up with MoneySupermarket to calculate exactly what my bag is worth.
Those of you who know me, know that I am not all about designer items. Not because I don't love the quality and care that has gone into creating bags that are what I call 'works of art', but because I end up spending my money in other places or saving it. BUT I bag a bargain when I can. (see what I did there?)
So what exactly is in my handbag and what is it worth? I was shocked once I added it all up!

I honestly had no idea that my little bag was worth that much money! I am actually shocked! My bag has next to nothing in when you take everything out! BUT when I added it all up...it's shocking how much money that little bag of goodies is worth!
I recommend everyone having a go at this! You will be amazed at how much you are carrying around! I thought I was fairly modest, but when you add it up...that little bag of joy is a gold mine! I shall be keeping that close and under my watchful eye from now on :D
