Sometimes when I glance in my purse I freak out because it’s such a mess. It seems that my purse is a catch all. No matter what, everything gets stuffed in there no matter if it’s my husband’s candy or a receipt from my last shopping trip. It’s a ‘safe’ place, I know that no matter what goes in there I’ll be the only one who has access to it.
Although it does get crazy messy and full of stuff that I don’t need there are a few items that I make sure to always keep handy. It’s items that I need daily or items that I can’t get be without.
Lipgloss or Lipstick is high on my list. The last time I checked, I had over 10 in my purse. I buy new lipgloss at least once a week so you can imagine the crazy number of glosses that I have laying around. Whenever I see one, I throw it in my purse because it’s something I don’t want to be without.
Mophie battery pack. Let’s be real – I’m on my phone all the time and I can’t stand for it to run out of battery so I have to always keep a back up! The Mophie is by far my favorite because it will recharge my battery all the way to full in one charge.
Essential Oils. I always keep a couple bottles with me. They’re small and I can’t be without them. I almost always have en-r-gee and lavender in my purse.
Gum / mints. Not only is this for me but for other people to. My husband loves to chew gum or mints so I like to keep them with me at all times. You never know when you’ll need it!
Hand Sanitizer. I am not a germ freak but there are sometimes when I just feel the need to sanitize my hands. Especially when I’m out in public places such as grocery stores or big box stores where I know thousands of people have been the same day.
Mascara and Eyeliner. I wear tons of makeup so I don’t like to carry tons around with me but when I’m going out or I know that I will be out most of the day, I make sure to throw in some mascara and eyeliner to my purse. I like to have it so I can refresh throughout the day as needed. Fresh eyeliner can make all the difference.
Hair clips. It is very rare that you’ll ever find me with my hair up in a ponytail unless I’m working out. There are some days that I’m just not feeling my hair so I always try to keep a hairclip close by. It’s a quick and easy way to throw my hair back without much effort.
U by Kotex. As women, we all know to never leave the house without feminine care. I’ve been stuck in some unfortunate situations before when I didn’t have any pads and let’s just say it was no fun and embarrassing! There’s nothing like having to ask complete strangers for help. You can never be too prepared in that type of situation!
