Is there a difference between handbags and purses?  The answer to this question depends entirely on where you live.  The British English meaning of “purse” is a coin purse, wallet, or pocketbook. If you’re from England, you might carry a purse inside of a handbag.  The American English meaning of “purse” has become synonymous with “handbag” which means the term can describe all types of handbags including clutches, satchels, totes, hobos, and more.

If you want to know the truth, I am born & raised in America but always thought that the purse was a women's wallet (maybe I am British and my parents lied to me that I am American).
