According to the Telegraph a recent survey has shown that the average weight of a handbag is 23lb’s, that’s almost a stone and a half an equivalent to a 15 month child.
Being the curious girl I am I weighed my own bag and found it to be 7 lb’s, a mere drop compared to a toddler weight bag but still I carry around half a stone with me.
I’m not the sort to carry around a huge bag from day to day, unless it’s really needed for things such as college or trips. This is my lovely newest bag which I bought from Faith. I know every blogger at some point has done this but I thought I woud show you what exactly makes my bag weigh half a stone
- My filofax
- a notebook of some sort (right now its my RSL bible)
- my purse
- keys and tardis keyring
- A cake lipbalm
- various pieces of make up
- and random reciepts and bus tickets
So here’s my challenge to all of you, weigh your bag- if your scales wont weigh it by itself weigh yourself then weigh yourself again with your bag and the difference is your bag weight- and report back to me. Do you carry around a 15 month child?
