High-end British department store John Lewis did an analysis of their bestselling women's products, deemed "handbag essentials." They calculated that the average British woman – who can afford to shop in their store, of course – is carrying around about $2,000 in assets ... simply with the junk in her purse. Things like expensive sunglasses, tech products, and top of the line makeup and perfume are just a few of the high ticket items in there.
Depending on the value of your purse and phone, the average woman is probably not carrying around $2,000 worth of crap in her purse. The crumpled up candy wrappers and receipts are certainly not increasing the value of the lip gloss from CVS and the sunglasses you picked up in the airport on your last vacation because you lost your expensive pair. So unless you are carrying around a lot of cash in that cute wallet you picked up at Target, the average American is probably carrying around under $500 worth of assets ... and that's including phone!
