Purse or Handbag?

What is the difference between the word purse and handbag you might ask well we have the answer! Originally the term “PURSE” referred to a small bag for holding coins. In many English-speaking countries, it is still used to refer to a small money bag or coin purse. A ”HANDBAG” is a larger accessory that holds items other than currency. Handbags are not only used for carrying daily items such as phone, keys, glasses, cosmetics and other personal belongings but also for "style purpose”. I love carrying all my daily “stuff”, so the size of a handbag is just as important as style.  Today many women use the two words interchangeably, so you decide are you carrying a purse or a handbag today!
