I am one of those girls who walk around everywhere with a 10 pound purse containing my entire life. I have often been told by friends and family that my purse is way too heavy, but do I listen? Nope. I almost injure my shoulder every day carrying it.
Carrying a heavy purse can be a big problem, especially if you are trying to find exact change while digging through compressed receipts and letters for example.
Sometimes, it can be a blessing – like when you have a bad migraine while you’re out and you don’t have any means of getting an Advil or a Tylenol.
As I mentioned above, I don’t go out without an Advil or a Tylenol. Since I regularly catch bad migraines, I don’t want to be out running errands or going to an important meeting and not having medication to soothe my pain. I try my best not to get used to medication and only take it if I have to. However, sometimes your back is against the wall and your only desire is to feel better soon.
2. A small makeup bag
3. A small hair brush and hair ties
4. A pen and small notebook
I know you can use your phone to write down some notes or a cute guy’s phone number in case you run into one. But I find it’s much more fun if I have a pen handy. And besides, for some things you really need a pen. For example, if you are filling out a paper and need to sign something.
I try to not leave the house without one small bottle of it. People who know me think I am a bit of a neat freak. I do my best to avoid microbes. You never know when you might need it to disinfect your hands. I can’t eat without washing my hand but when you are out this can be difficult. So if I can at least desinfect my hands it’s all good.
6. Hand cream
I wash my hands a lot at work so I like to have hand cream to soften my palms, especially during winter where our skin tend to be dry and irritate. Plus, it smells so good. What’s not to love?
7. Pack of tissues
8. Feminine products
9. Mints or Gum
I am not myself when I am hungry. So I like to keep some almonds or a protein bar in my purse for snacking.
Because I need my driver’s license and money to go around.
12. Eye drops
So I can soothe my eyes especially when I wear eye makeup.
What about you? what do YOU keep in your purse?
