I am a handbag connoisseur! I looooove a good handbag yall! I usually use a bigger bag but lately, I have been rocking my Michael Kors Greenwich Bucket Bag. I found this baby at TJ Maxx for $60 a few years back. 

My kids are no longer in diapers or pull-ups so a bigger bag isn’t really a necessity anymore. After I Marie Kondo’d (not a word, I know lol) my room I was like “let’s see if I can declutter this bag of mine and maybe downsize”. So I did and it’s been going well for me. At least so far.

  1. I don’t like things loose in my bags ever, so I keep everything organized using makeup bags. I used to use three at a time but for this bag, I could only fit one. In that, I keep some mints, hand sanitizer, tide to go pen, some lipgloss, cough drops, cuticle oil, hand lotion, and a pen. [insert pic of makeup bag + contents]
  2. I keep a cardholder full of gift cards that are separate from my wallet because I have too many. I’ll get around to using them before they expire — hopefully.
  3. In my little taco coin purse are my headphones, charging box, and cable. 
  4. Lastly and probably the only loose things in my purse are my Blistex, some travel tissue, and a pack of gum that I’ve had for upwards of four months. 

So far this is all that I need when I leave the house. Sometimes I’ll throw some snacks in there ‘cause ya girl gets hangry. Or if I know that time of the month is creeping up on me I’ll throw some sanitary items in there. But other than that I have realized I don’t need a lot of junk in my purse, especially if I’m the only one carrying it around.

What bag are you rocking right now? What are you’re essentials/must-haves? I love seeing what other people carry in their bags. Leave a comment down below and let’s talk about it!
