My handbag is my ball and chain.

How heavy do you think your hand bag is? The Daily Mail reports the average weight of a woman's hand bag is 5.2 lbs!! What's more, in the next decade we are going to see that amount go up to 6.6 lbs!! Carrying gadgets like iPods, Blackberrys, iPhones, cell phones not to mention the ten tubes of lipstick, lip gloss and chapstick are to blame for the added poundage. No wonder my arm feels like it's about to fall off every time I carry my bag around!!
