Is This your Handbag?


That’s a question I hear regularly. Yes. It’s my decluttered handbag.

What Is a Mini Bag?

Size: 20 cm x 10 cm (8 inches x 4 inches).

The small bag I use is a Longchamp cosmetic case or pouch, but in my opinion it can be used as a purse.

A small (if not minimalist) wallet is enough for me, it fits a couple of cards (debit/credit card, driver’s license, ID). I used to have a bigger wallet but then decided to get rid of some of the cards I seldom use.

I have a small physical pocket calendar. The logic behind it is that if my meetings and appointments don’t fit into the small space, I have too much to do. The paper planner doesn’t beep and send any reminders, but then again, it doesn’t need to. I take a look at my schedule the night before and again next morning and that’s it. I have thought about using an electronic one, but so far the paper calendar seems easier. I don’t need to worry about running out of batteries or receiving some error messages while trying to enter events into a digital calendar.
