There is something magical about a well-packed purse. Don't you think?
From things that will keep you organized, fix a wardrobe malfunction, or save you from the pain of that bad Chinese food, your purse is something you never leave home without. Loaded with all the must-have essentials, my purse is more useful than a Sherpa’s pack.
Here's the breakdown...
1. Lip balm
I practically have lip balms in every coat pocket and desk drawer. Still, the most important lip balm is the one in my purse because it’s always there when I need it most. Otherwise, potential chapping will ruin my whole day.
2. Pain Reliever
These days something on me always hurts. Whether it’s a tension headache or a muscle strain at the gym (from getting into my sports bra), I make sure to keep my purse stocked.
Mints are so multi-functional. They taste great and they freshen breath. Like a snack that brushes your teeth! Most importantly, you can give one to that close-talker who just ate an onion bagel.
Once you hit fifty, readers are a must. Like lip balm, it’s best to have multiples. Good luck reading that menu without them.
5. Mirrored compact
I’m not vain (that’s a lie). I just like knowing I look fabulous all the time. But really, there are so many reasons you might need a mirror on the go!
So, if I have the readers and the mirror, I know I’m going to see something that requires the tweezers. I really need to have these when I’m on the go; because the best light in the whole world seems to happen when I’m in my parked car waiting on my kids.
I miss handkerchiefs just a little. Still, so much nicer to be able to have something on hand to get anything off your hands - or anywhere else that might need a gentle wipe.
8. Hand sanitizer
Before meals, after a sketchy restroom, or anytime during cold season. This stuff is basically magic in a bottle. You can even get scents that smell fresh and clean. Die, germs, die!
Perhaps the most important item I carry with me. If I’m away from home and need that Pink Relief for (sing it with me) nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea. We know you have been there, we all have. Bad Chinese? Don’t be miserable all night!
