Sometimes, your curious children open your bag or a drawer or wardrobe to look for things. They often make things messy while searching for things.
Is it correct to say "my children often rummage in my bag" or "my children often ransack my bag" in everyday conversation?
I found this term "turn something upside down: to make a place untidy when looking for something"
I am not sure we can use it instead, for example, "my children often turn my bag upside down". But it may not technical correct because the children may just open the bag but not actually "turn the bag inside out or upside down" to look for things.
Also, there are some heavy things like a drawer or wardrobe, which can not be turned "upside down" easily by children.
And actually, I found a lot of similar words such as "poke, root, fish", for example, “they often poke/root/fish around in my bag”.
But they should emphasize that they make things messy while searching for things.
