Top 10 Common Things Found in a Woman’s Purse

We have all seen women carrying a huge purse along with themselves and being tiny little fragile human beings that they are, men are always wondering what they carry inside these bags. They assume it must be filled with a lot of junk that is completely unnecessary and certainly for people who carry around all their personal effects in their little wallet (the thinner the better) it certainly must be mind-boggling as to what a women carries around in that tote! Well to ease the discomfort and to put at rest all kinds of theories about women’s purses, here is a list that divulges all the information there is to know! Go through this and find out that women carry around their lives where ever they go, proudly!


1. Gum


A girl is almost always carrying with her some sort of bubble gum in her purse. I  know girls who carry two of the same brands of gum in their bag, both of them unfinished and both of them open and used. There is something about girls and gum that men just cannot seem to figure out. Perhaps having so much gum is why they are so well-tasting as well! Well, well, well, this here might be the reason your girl friend always tastes like strawberries or peach right.


2. The Primer

the primer

The primer, or the base for make-up is an absolute must-have. Most primers are a little expensive, but they are worth it if you want your make-up to last at least 8 hours. What the primer does is help fix the make-up on the skin, and this includes the foundation. If you use primer, the eye shadow will look impeccable all day long.


3. Mascara


There are many types of mascaras, and everybody knows that long, beautiful, black lashes make beautiful eyes amazing. If you want a natural look, you can use a little mascara, and if you want to go out in the club, you should definitely apply mascara for volume. In other words, you can wear it everywhere, anytime.


4. Purell


Keep the germ fighting power of Purell in your bag for quick and easy cleaning. You’ll need lotion when coming from a public bathroom, unless you like stiff, dry hands. Tissues are great for sudden runny noses, small spills and the occassional crying episode. For major stains like ketchup on a white dress or bbq sauce on your jeans, definitely look into purchasing a stain stick. A bunch of brands make them and they’re supposed to work like magic. No word on whether or not they actually do. We’ll need some reviews. I once dated a girl who was germaphobic and the only thing she would do is poor the Purell onto her hands about 20 times a day.


5. Chocolate

Women’s love for chocolates is a well known fact and hence a total of 10 percent women like to carry chocolates in some form or the other. The research was carried on  by Cadbury Chocolates to launch their new, handbag-sized Dairy Milk Bubbly Mini bar . it also reveled that an average woman carries around 40 items in her handbag.  Interesting statistic – no wonder most women cannot find anything in their purses. They must go digging and digging until they find what they need.


6.  Kleenex


No girl in my circle of acquaintances can be found without hankies. There are women who like carrying around small containers of tissue papers along with them because of health issues. Then there are women who carry around wet tissues for that moment of freshness whenever and where ever it is needed. Some carry around tissue papers because public restrooms are normally out of them, also, in case you sneeze and you do not have a tissue on you, it would seem very anti-feminish. This little fact that girls have tissues on them, is so known now that a man is surely bound to assume that a woman has tissues in her purse, if not, they are just amazed if nothing else!


7. Cell Phone

Another very cool accessory is the phone! The I-phones are the latest trend and if not that, it certainly would be an android phone. The phone category basically covers all the electronic gadgets that can be found in a woman’s purse and please feel free to include an iPod or a similar music thingy, headphones for sure, and perhaps an iPad too! What will a girl do if she did not tag her whole life around with her.


 8. Funky Laptop Cases

Fun and funky laptop cases and bags.You see them everywhere now – airports, coffee shops and just about anywhere a wireless laptop can be set up. Gone are the days when you had to wheel your laptop around – now you can find cute and unusual laptop cases with shoulder straps, even playing double duty as purses for us women that not only have to find room for a laptop but room for a wallet, baby bottles and just about everything else our family uses.

Don’t get me wrong, laptop cases and bags with wheels are still very popular. If you have to walk for a long time a laptop case with wheels is definitely the way to go – but for most of us that are just toting a laptop around for casual use, the new fun and funky laptop cases are not only whimsical but useful for all kinds of things – some carry paper and files while some offer nice padding in case your laptop takes a fall (been there and done that – as most of us probably have)

For many women, finding the right laptop case is an art–a melding of need, style, size, and protection that will serve as many purposes as possible. Recent models have more carrying comfort, as well as more handy and secure pockets for cell phones, Blackberrys, and more.


9.Notepad & Pen

Pen and Paper

Many women find it necessary to carry a notebook for taking notes during meetings, contact details while in the street or simply a schedule showing their day’s itinerary. Some will carry a shopping list in the notebook to tick through as they purchase preferred goods. The most preferred brand is currently the Mickey Spiral notebook and pen. Why? That is in case they need to write down pertinent information when they are on the run. One hand is always held on the phone, while the other is seen grabbing for the purse to find pen/notepad.


10. Safety Pins/Small Sewing Kits

I can begin to tell you how mortified I’ve been when I looked down and saw that, yep, my blouse is missing a button. It’s the perfect excuse to buy another top, but if it’s the middle of the day and I’m still at work, what am I supposed to for the next few hours? Safety pin and mini sewing kit to the rescue!
