When it comes to your handbag, do you carry everything but the kitchen sink or are you more of a minimalist?

At some point in a woman's life she'll be asked by a female friend what she carries in her handbag. Maybe you can even remember a moment when you've pulled all of the items out of your bag to show your friend. And if you're lucky, hopefully she did the same, too. It's like a mini handbag party.

Whether you prefer Kate Spade or Michael Kors, a woman's purse is her domain and there's no doubt that what she's got inside is what she needs to get through the day. For those of you still trying to fill your bag with things you think you might need, check out the list of must-haves that Business Insider put together.
