Are a purse and a handbag the exact same thing?

I always call them handbags. It just sounds better than purse. However, I am wondering... is there any difference in a handbag and a purse? Or, are they the same thing... and people just call it whatever they prefer?

Not really, hand bags are bigger than purses. Purses usually fit diminutive stuff, where hand bags can fit massive items such as books..
