The miniature handbag.

Introducing the miniature handbag, that I recently bought from New Look. I was so sick of carrying around a gigantic handbag on a daily basis, it just gave me more of an excuse to fill it with total rubbish.
the miniature handbagSo, when I spotted this pastel pink miniature handbag with gold hardware, I knew it was the perfect size for me. I have been really determined to not clutter it with rubbish and really keep things to a minimum. Instead of just shoving receipts, spare change, and other junk like 3 MAC lipsticks, and probably some form of chocolate, here’s what you can find in my new, de-cluttered bag. Michael kors purseI bought this Michael Kors purse / card holder for just £16.99 the last week from TK MAXX, it should have been around £50.00 so there was no way, I was leaving it on the shelf! I never seem to use much cash, so it’s perfect for me. I can fill it with my ridiculous amount of VERY important cards you know, like my unlimited Cineworld and Boots points cards…The miniature handbag michael korsWhat do you think? It was available to buy in a bright orange colour, but obviously me being me I just had to go for the white! The picture doesn’t really show how chunky it is, it’s not thin, it feels like a small purse, than a card holder, there’s a large pouch for notes too. I was very happy with this find.iphone 6Of course my beloved iPhone 6 was always going to be included in this list, whilst I am using it a lot less when I am out and about but I still like to take my phone with me 99% of the time for emergencies and just so I can be contactable. phone charmI wanted to also show you guys this pretty flowers and pearls phone charm I picked up from Home Bargains not too long ago, for the grand total of £1.00 isn’t it lovely?Ray Bans Seen as it is summer, well if you can call it that in the UK. I like to keep my sunglasses in my bag too, you know… Just incase the sun ever decides to show its face.

And there you have it, the contents of my miniature handbag, the only other item that’s in there are my keys and possibly a lip balm from time to time. I really want to keep it to a minimum it’s so embarrassing having to dig through everything at a checkout, or I always panic thinking I’ve lost or misplaced my phone (I never have) It’s just buried under junk that I do not need to be carrying around with me. Would you switch to a miniature handbag? Or maybe you’ll just de-clutter yours for now. Unless you are a neat and tidy person whose bag doesn’t contain Krispy Kreme Donut receipts galore and the odd dog treat (Thanks Oscar!) Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂

    I always love a good small, structured handbag 😀 It’s so much easier to find things in them. It didn’t dawn on me to buy a downsized wallet as well. I’ve just been sticking my bills into my coin purse, but I’m going to have to come up with a more effective method 😛 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Oh, I think I’m in love <3 <3 <3 Your handbag is absolutely stunning and I've been looking for something very similar for the longest time! I walked into Michael Kors just the other day and saw a bag so similar to yours, but couldn't justify spending 350 on it. . .one day. . .one day haha!

    I walk into that shop every time and I watch the bags without bringing myself to buy one. whyyyy

    Ooh what a gorgeous bag! I definitely need to downsize mine – it’s so full of receipts and general junk that it takes forever to fish to the bottom. I also carry books round in there and a diary – I never use it out and about I think I just like to feel organised! My bag gets so heavy it gives me back ache though, so I definitely need to downsize. Very jealous of your MK find, I never seem to find gems like that in TK Maxx! Xxx

    That is such a gorgeous bag! I really love the idea of investing in a smaller bag to avoid carrying around a mountain of junk that I so often do in a bigger one.

    That bag is so cute and I love the pastel pink colour. If I had this bag I’d also try not to clutter it.

    I always end up carrying around too much as sell, but I do take a smaller bag out and about at weekends. I love the coin purse, I love TK Maxx.

    I love minature handbags. I’ve always carried small bags, mainly for my convenience and it’s so much lighter and easier to carry when I’m on my feet shopping for five hours!

    This bag is absolutely beautiful! I’m normally one for bigger sized bags but keeping things to a minimum sounds like an absolute dream.

    I know what you mean about carrying something smaller. For work I can’t really avoid a big bag but on the weekends I always change my bag to something light weight! xx

    What a gorgeous little handbag, I find I’m less prone to cluttering my bag’s when they are smaller as well! So I’ll have to keep an eye out for this x

  19. August 10, 2015 / 12:22 am

    I love the color of the miniature bag! The wallet goes well with the bag as well!

    This bag is gorgeous! I have a big Jimmy Choo tote that I use every day. But where it’s so big, I put so much in it and completely weighs me down and becomes so heavy which really isn’t good for me! I feel if I buy a small hangbag it’s going to do me and my arm some good! I also love TKMax shopping – you can always find an amazing, cheeky bargain somewhere!

    That is such a pretty bag and I just picked up a mini one myself to try and de clutter too. I love your phone charm too and need to lookout for my new iPhone.

  23. August 11, 2015 / 1:46 pm

    I also decided to get a smaller purse this summer, and I love it! It’s great for summer since I tend to walk around more (I hate carrying heavy when walking a lot) and GREAT for shopping! More arm room for shopping bags!

    Thanks for the post! That purse is super cute!
