A woman's purse or handbag is as iconic as her shoes. We all have our own tastes and styles, but what about the mystery and style secrets that are held within?
We're all familiar with how the contents of a bag can be a perfect harmony of all your daily needs stylishly met in a cute package. But what we don't often discuss are the organizers, clips, coupons, gadgets and the select few pieces of make-up that get to ride with you all day. You may also have some small but essential items that have become the glue for your day. It may be anything from a protein bar, a band-aid, or a picture of your family, but to you it's a must-have in your bag. Whatever you keep in your handbag, we'd love to hear all about it!
In this week's giveaway, if you share a peek in your purse on Pinterest as a video or picture board, we'll enter you for a chance to win a shiny new Kindle Fire!
It doesn't really seem a stretch to suggest that perhaps how we keep our bags is an extension of our personality. Is that true for you? Are you someone who throw's everything into your bag until it's overflowing or do you have different bags with different functions that you switch between? Perhaps, you have an optimal number of items in your bag that you never go over.
So is it the organized mind or the organized bag that helps us to keep our bags from turning into the abyss and avoid the constant searching for keys, wallet, or cell phone. We all have our story when it comes to our purse and we'd love to hear yours. For some this will be therapeutic for others a purge and of course we're hoping to pick up some tips on great products and ideas for a better relationship with our bag.
For some inspiration, we love this video by KatrinasBlushing. She shares some great products and a few clear, self-imposed rules, like never carrying make-up - just lipgloss!

I found a zip lock from my last trip at the bottom of my bag. It has a squished up protein bar and crushed goldfishes. Yuck!
Like a few of these other ladies, I don't carry a purse. I can fit everything I need in my pockets. I would totally enter if this contest wasn't only for women who carry purses.
That was fun! http://pinterest.com/pinktamale/share-a-peek-in-your-purse/
I just added my entry...pretty scary -- 11 handfuls! LOL
Just posted mine. I rambled on way longer than I thought I would, though. Thanks for the contest!
My purse is a mess, lol. With 5 kids I have everything from diapers to toys in it.
This is a really cute & fun idea for a giveaway. I have soooooo many purses filled with so much stuff I can't decide which bag to take pictures of! =]
I would love to try for this but I have to wait for more opening to join Pintrest :-( Good luck to all those that entered.
@RUtheMOMof: You can take actual pictures of what's in your purse to make the board, or you can simply find online images of the products you keep in your purse. Whichever way is easier for you is perfectly fine. Thanks!
I am a little confused here I looked at the other postings and they are not actually what is in there purse. You do want the actual purse and what is actually in that purs. RIGHT ???
I have been wanting a Kindle Fire! Looking through my purse made me realize I need to do a major clean out!
Was SO excited. I did the Pinterest board and everything. Then I realized I had to use Facebook. I despise FB & won't use it. Guess I am out of the running. I'll read the entry instructions better next time. HUGE disappointment. I gave it my best shot & just so it doesn't all go to waste, I am sharing my Pinterest board on the She Speaks hosted site.
I don't use a purse or bag. That way I am not stuck carrying all my kid's junk. I simply tell them that I don't have anywhere to carry it:)
It's amazing how people are ready to give up last of their privacy for a chance of getting some free stuff! What's next - show us the brands of your underwear and make your undressing video for a chance of winning an iphone?
Uhhh...what if we don't own or use a purse? I can't possibly be the only girl out there that doesn't!
