Take Part in this Fun & Insightful Competition: ‘What’s actually in your Handbag?’ | brought to you by Money Matters with Nimi




At her friend’s father’s 80th birthday party last Saturday night, Bola’s handbag and all its contents were stolen including her International Passport: Her secure world changed in an instant.

What do you carry around in your handbag? What if your handbag got stolen, what would you lose? Personal finance expert and CEO, Bestman Games, Nimi Akinkugbe recently wrote an insightful and thought-provoking piece ‘What’s actually in Your Handbag?‘ (Click here if you missed it)

Okay ladies (and some gents willing to dare) let’s have some fun!! What’s actually in your handbag? Post a photo of your handbag and its contents on Instagram, and tag @mmwithnimi on it and use the hashtag #InMyHandBag to stand a chance to win Nimi Akinkugbe’s much talked about new book ‘A- Z of Personal Finance‘.

    Hehe! this kain thing is definitely not for me, seeing that its only one handbag i have and the “things” inside

    wraps of already licked sweets and its cousins, pieces of A-4 paper that i kept in the bag after changing my answer during a test, numerous receipts from different points of purchase, Emergency sanitary “equipment”, many pens of different colours with only one or two writing, earrings that i wore from the house and removed on the way because i got tired and so much more.. oo yes, money too.

    some of the reasons the contents might change;
    1. self imposed environmental sanitation of the bag (yimu)
    2. when i go to church, i add my bible and notepad to the nearly permanent occupants
    3. personal identification cards and documents for administrative purposes.

    The real owners of this competition, biko go and enter oo. if you are like me, please join this line i have started and do an about-turn. 🙂

    Nice one, I am doing this right away. I like Nimi, after listening to her at the Genevieve gatherings, I have been glued.
