What items do you always have in your handbag?

It makes sense to always carry around your keys, some cash, as well as your license and other necessary cards. But what else do you always have in your handbag? Are they things you genuinely can't do without? Or is your bag full of just-in-case items?

I don't really have a handbag, but I am pretty much always wearing a pocket belt (a fabric belt with pockets, for wearing at festivals and stuff, handy if you often wear skirts with no pockets). It usually contains my ipod, house keys, hankies for myself and the kids, a couple of dollars in change bandaids and spare hair clips and hair bands for my daughter.

If I carry a bag it needs to be big enough to carry a lot of stuff (books, nappies, kids lunches) so I'd cripple myself if I wore it over one shoulder. I use a granny trolley or a backpack instead.

Apart from the purse and mobile phone:

Lip gloss
Hand cream
Chewing gum
I always have a book, water and something small to eat, like an apple.
Phone, diary, hair brush, tissues, pen and hand cream.
I also keep a band-aid in case if kids might get a small scratch. I also keep a lip balm and lipstick and a small mirror. When my kids were younger, a small toy or book to entertain them at odd spots would always come in handy.
When I see women with large handbags it makes me smile :)

They do look rather funny

What are we telling men.....that we need to kart all this around with us, just to go out?

I have a small handbag, 15 cm by 10 cm...It has five zippers and inside I have

Note paper
Reading glasses
Band aids
Safety pins
Small wallet
Car keys
Nail file
A few bits of paper with info on

Anything else, I may as well stay home!

The thought of carrying a lot of gear with me, to just step outside my home...?
