Essential Items to Keep in Your Purse

By Robin Kiatipis

Every woman knows that she keeps the most unnecessary items in her purse – from movie ticket stubs, to McDonald’s coupons that you will never use, it is all useless. So how come we can’t seem to pack the things we will need? Here is a list of essential items that every woman should keep with her at all times.

Blotting tissues and makeup removing wipes

These are essential for when you are constantly on the go. Bring these with you everywhere to get rid of oil and shine before a meeting or a night out. They come in convenient small packs that fit nicely in any bag. Try Clean and Clear’s Oil Absorbing Sheets. Makeup removing wipes are also helpful when you want to clean up any smeared eyeliner after a busy day. We recommend MAC Wipes.

Mini first-aid kit

Do you ever find yourself with a killer headache or your allergies start up just as you’re going into an important meeting? A good way to avoid this is by keeping a small pill box in your purse with allergy meds and some Advil. It is also a good idea to keep band-aids in your purse too. You never know when those new adorable heels are going to give you a huge blister after a day of running around.

Safety pins, tweezers, nail file, nail clippers

These items are self explanatory. Everyone needs these at some point, and it is always when you don’t have them with you. You can purchase a small kit that includes tweezers, nail file, and clippers from any drug store.

Pen and paper

These are also items that you can never find when you need them. Keep a small notebook and a pen in your purse.

Foldable flats

Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats are a must for any woman who spends 90% of the day on her feet A pair of these flats in the bottom of your bag can be a life saver at the end of a busy day, when all you want to do is take off those 6-inch heels for the subway ride home.

Hand sanitizer and lotion

There is nothing worse than a long subway ride that requires you to hang on for dear life. Those germs seem to linger on your hands long after your commute, so carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer is a good way to rid yourself of bacteria. The last thing you need is to get sick! We recommend Bath and Body Work’s sanitizers – only $1.50 a bottle, and they come in a very wide variety of scents! Hand lotion is also a good purse item, especially during those long winter months when your hands get dry.

Ladies, clean out your purse and get rid of that old pack of gum that’s been there for months. It is time to start carrying around these useful items – you never know when you will need them, but you will be grateful when you do!
