In usual, what kind of handbag do you want to carry? The big one or the small one? I like to carry small handbag with me. Although I have so many things inside the handbags, but I still don't want to use a big handbag. So usually my handbag is quite full

When I see "handbag" I think of a bag you carry in your hand, like a clutch, which would be so easy to drop or have stolen, so I guess I have a "shoulder bag". I have the smallest one I can get everything I need into. I wish I could carry a bigger one, but I have arthritis in my shoulder, plus my shoulders are narrow, so a big heavy bag would always slice off. To carry a clutch in the hand would be worse, though, as the arthritis in my hands and wrists is worse than my shoulder. I could not hold on to it well, even with a wrist strap. It would just ache. I guess it would be best to be able to carry a pouch on a belt, for comfort, but the "fanny packs" don't look so good. I really would like to find a good alternative that looks good too.

Of course, I mean "slide", not "slice". Ouch!

If so, perhaps a bigger handbag will be suitable for you

i am not a small bag person. i bring a lot of things when i go out. my meds, my money, some toiletries, a face towel, keys, cellphone, a small notebook candies or mints. so if i bring a small bag it will look stuffed. but i am not a big bag person as well i dont like my things to be all over the bag and i will have a hard time looking for it. so i am a medium bag person but if i go to work i carry a big bag.

when they were toodlers i do really carry a big bag so i can stuff their things inside of it. now that they are all teens they carry their own bag with them. so all the things in my bag are my personal things already.

Since you have four lovely children, I think you have more stuff in your handbag

Neither! LOL I carry a medium sized handbag! I don't care for little handbags as it can never fit everything I want to bring with me, and I don't care for big handbags as their just too big for my liking. The medium sized handbags are just right for me.

actually i would not prefer to carry a handbag at all.... i mean why do you need a handbag in the first place? ok ok i know im a girl.... and i need a handbag and stuff but i still hate carrying anything than just a phone....which could be also stuffed in the pocket..... well there are these times of the month that you need to carry a handbag.... but then i carry a very small one.... i just dont understand why girls carry their entire wardrobe along with them.....? their cosmetics itslef occuly half of the bag...... i do put cosmetics but to the minimum.... or sometimes i dont put on anything.... i only put on a lipstick..... thats also cos sometimes i just look too pale..... and i dont keep re applying it too so i dont even need to carry that along..... but i have or rather i used to carry a medium sized handbag some years ago to office but then i realised soon enough that though i am carrying the handbag with so many things in it i never really get to put my hand in there to actually use anything..... so i stopped doing it..... now i have whatever i want right in the car .... :P easier that way !! as i told you earlier that its only that one time in the month that i would need to carry anything..... ofcourse parties are a different issue when you carry a matching handbag cos it just looks good..... :)

In fact I think girls' clothes and trousers don't have many pockets. At least I can't put the stuff into my pockets because they are not enough

I try to carry large handbags except for to church or if I am going to a meeting or out to dinner and so on.Because normally I will have my daughter and grand daughter with me and they are always handing me stuff to put in my purse.When,I clean out my purse I find all sorts of junk.

I much prefer a smaller sized handbag, with a large bag I am just tempted to put way too much in it and it becomes heavy - or I can not find anything in it and it is a mess. eVen if it has a lot of pockets I forget which pocket is for which things.... it is less confusing and easier to carry a smaller bag with few necessary items.

I "like" carrying small bags because they're cute and pretty and light. However, I actually carry big handbags because I have a lot of things to bring. A small notebook for example wouldn't fit well with my wallet and with my other stuff :P Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I like to carry a small one or none at all but there are times when a large one is necessary to carry all the essential items one needs to get through the day.

i rather use a big handbag because im the type of person who brings alot of things especially if i would not go home from work during lunch break. i just eat and stayed at the office. thats why its so appropriate for me to bring a big handbag.

I actually use shoulder bag. A pouch is not enough. I carry a bag with my umbrella, make up bag, sanitary bag, fan, pen case, shades, cellphones, wallet, prayer booklet, and one codal of any law subject inside it. When I am going to a mall I want to have a bigger bag because I want that if I can shop for a blouse or small stuff I don't have to carry another paper or plastic bag. I want that it can be contained inside my shoulder bag. Sometimes, I let my boyfriend carry it and most of the times he complained that my bag seems to contain a big stone. I just laugh. Hahahahaha!

Well usually I like to carry small handbags but I put a lot of things in it, just like you. I would bring a shoulder bag with me if I go sleep overs to my friend's house so that I can have some clothes and toiletries too.

I tend to carry a handbag which is at least big enough to contain my purse/wallet, mobile phone, lipstick and small hairbrush. Other than that, I try to co-ordinate handbags with outfits. If I happen to take a large handbag, somehow it will miraculously fill with junk. If I take a small handbag, then it will be fine.
