Essentials for Every Purse
Posted on March 05 2020
It can be hard to decide what all goes in your purse. You compile weeks worth of things just because you always want to be prepared. Use this guide to help you always be prepared with the things in your purse!
1. Small make-up bag with touch up makeup.
You’d be surprised how much makeup smudges and comes off through out the day. Once you start doing touch ups... you’ll understand!
2. Small bag of tissues.
They’re great for when you have allergies or even if you don’t they’re good for spills or just whenever you get a little emotional.
Garlic lunch doesn’t exactly smell the best in meetings or just up close and personal.
Especially if you’re breaking in a new pair of shoes! They are great for blisters or even if a piece of clothing is rubbing the wrong way!
5. Hair ties
There’s always someone asking for one or a time when you really need one, so just be prepared anyways!
7. Phone charger and car adapter
You never know when you will need your phone in an emergency so be ready and have a phone charger just in case!
8. Ibuprofen, tylenol, menstrual meds
Headaches. Cramps. Sore from the gym. You never know when you’ll need some or your colleagues.
9. Hand sanitizer
For when hand washing isn’t available or just when you touch something gross. You can never go wrong with some hand sanitizer.
10.Small pack of flushable wipes
Ever had to go to the bathroom REALLY bad, but guess what? THERE’S NO TOILET PAPER. Good thing you have some flushable wipes in your purse!
11. Mini vaseline/lotion
Vaseline can be used for chapped lips, makeup remover, and moisturizer and it’s all in a tiny container. A small hand lotion isn’t bad either for the wintry dry months!
12. Pen and notepad
You may need to take some information so it’s always best to have a notepad just in case the information is too sensitive for your phone. A pen NEVER hurts especially for signing checks at the bank!
13. Extra jewelry
Earrings, necklaces, bracelets... you might need to spice yourself up real quick before going somewhere, so just be prepared with some jewelry that can go with anything!
14. Sunglasses with case
Sunglasses are perfect for the sunny days and always look super cute so just have them on hand in your purse! Make sure they’re in a case though so they don’t get scratched!
15. Roll on perfume
There’s always a time to freshen up!
16. Small mirror
For those makeup and hair touch ups duh!!!
For those mommas out there- you know this one comes in handy!
18. Extra panties
There’s always one of those days where you completely forgot you are supposed to start your period. Be comfortable and have a fresh extra pair of panties on hand.
You do NOT want to be caught in a situation without any of these.
Want to avoid conversations or just need to listen to something important? Carry around some extra earbuds!
21. Thread kit
It’s always so depressing when you rip a hole in your favorite clothing! Stitch it up real quick or cut the loose thread with a thread kit!
