Too Much Weight on Your Shoulders?
Too Much Weight on Your Shoulders?

Like a lot of women, I’m guilty of stuffing too much in my purse and then carrying it around.  Sometimes I pick up my bag and realize that I need to clean it out because it seems as heavy as a suitcase.  Just think, the following ten items combined, which most of us carry everyday, add up to seven pounds or more:

  1. Make-up bag
  2. Mobile phone
  3. Calendar
  4. Book or magazine
  5. Fold-up umbrella
  6. iPod
  7. Hairbrush
  8. Keys
  9. Wallet
  10. Hand cream

That’s a lot of weight to carry around!
