Basic Essential Items to Carry in Your Handbag

Basic Essential Items to Carry in Your Handbag

I have heard many men being amazed at how many things women carry in their handbags. It is true that our purses usually represent our lifestyle and daily routine. However, in time chaos prevails and we end up carrying lots of unnecessary things, while skipping on some very essential items. If you want to be prepared for every awkward situation that you can find yourself into during your day, for instance, you need to create a list and stick to it. Here are some items that we think are essentials in your handbag:

  • Tampons/Pads: You may be surprised by what your organism can prepare for you, so be ahead of it and keep a tampon or a pad in each bag. Also, you may help a friend in need if she ends up in an awkward situation!
  • Tissues: Whenever my brother asked me for a tissue or a wet wipe and I did not have one, he always said “What kind of woman are you and why the hell do you carry such a big bag if you do not have something as basic as a tissue?!” So I started carrying a pack of dry and wet wipes and to be honest, it is one of the best things you can carry with yourself!
  • Hand Sanitizer: Along with wet wipes, hand sanitizer is something very useful when it comes to personal hygiene when you are out all day long or even when you are travelling.
  • A Small Umbrella: Fall has arrived and with it, foggy and rainy weather. If you do not want your hairstyle to be ruined, find a small umbrella that is not heavy and just carry it with you at all times.
  • Pen & Paper: It is best if you have a nice little notebook or notepad to keep track of stuff which you think of during the days: ideas, inspirational quotes, contacts, arrangements and tasks. You will notice how much more organized you will become and how many new things you will be able to keep track of!
  • Book or Magazine: Something to read always comes in hand if you are waiting for someone or for a doctor’s appointment or something like that. Besides, it is better than just scrolling your phone and observing what your friends are doing on Facebook or Instagram!
  • Makeup Bag: We do not expect you to carry your whole beauty arsenal with you, so just prepare a little bag with the essentials: a mirror, a powder, maybe one or two eye products and a lip gloss. Makeup wears off during the day and you might want to fix something along the way.
  • Chewing Gum/ Mint: Probably we do not need to explain why these items are essential: after having coffee or a meal, they become life-savers!
  • Painkillers: Painkillers are something that can come in hand a lot, especially if you are on your period or you spend too much time in front of a computer and your head hurts, so just carry a pack with you at all times.
  • Hair Band/Bobby Pins & Hair Brush: You will be surprised that not many girls remember to bring something to set their hair in shape with them, but even if you have had a perfect hairstyle in the morning, the odds are that it gets messy, so have something to tie it or comb it in your bag.
