What my purse means to mean

A handbag is mysterious - I wouldn't dream of letting someone else peek in.

It's a comfort - it carries all the doodads I need to have with me like a security blanket. Money, Credit cards, phone, keys, stuff to make me look and smell good, stuff to clean up with, stuff to take for pain, stuff to look at (pictures, notebook) to make me feel at home.

My handbag is like my "Mini-Me."

Or maybe my "Mr. Bigglesworth."
How about you. What metaphors come to mind?
