Today I cleaned my handbag after nearly one month. I had been so busy and my mum was not keeping well too and so I had just been stuffing things in my handbag. Today morning I was looking for my key in the bag and felt as if I was putting my hand in a dumpster. I just couldn't find my key. There were so many papers in my bag, my makeup were lying here and there and there were small packets of crisps. I even found some notes and coin. This was the one thing I was happy about. Well my handbag felt happy today and was smiling at me after so long. What about you? Do you regularly clean your handbags? Image is from pinterest. My handbag was as messy as this one

When I was young my bag was messy, now I clean it every week to check if I forgot nothing inside.

I learnt a lesson today. I will try to clean my bag more often. It was such a headache to clean it. Fortunately I found no spiders or cockroaches in there

I am so relate to this, he he. So many things in my backpack that when I look for keys, ballpens, notebook among others, I can't find it. Cleaning seems to be the best thing to do. Lots of papers and wrappers needed to be trash.

It is good that you could clean your bag on the pretext of finding your key. We usually keep stuffing lot of stuff in out bag and then forget about it. Usually, we do not clean it till we need to search for something. Ideally, we should clean our bag once in a month at least, so as to throw out the waste.

Usually I kept less things in my bag. Otherwise my hubby scolds me and tease me, can't put hand in your bag, there may be reptiles in your bag. So I try to clean it periodically even if I put anything extra in it.

not often enough. i have a back pack i use because i have to haul so much when i go out but even though i have organizers in it, still things move around where i can't find them. i think a thumb size person hides in there and moves them around.

I think there is such a person hiding in my bag too and that is the reason why it remains so messy. I will have to look for that naughty little person now In fact i use the same back to run errands and go to work and so i tend to stuff everything inside this bag. And when i clean it I do make great discoveries

Yes, I do. I change handbag almost daily so I'm constantly cleaning as I'm moving stuff from one handbag to another. I don't usually have too many stuff in my handbag though - a pen, a wallet, a packet of tissue, a small hair-brush, and a small make-up case containing an eye-liner, a lipstick, and a compact powder, that's about it.
