Perfectly Practical #20 - What's in Your Purse?



Last week I mentioned that I always carry my "think pad" (small notepad and pen) with me in case I have a thought I don't want to forget or I need to entertain a little person while we are out.  That got me thinking about what else I try to always have at my fingertips while out and about:

  • Hand sanitizer - not just for before meals or after you pet someone's dog, but also for toilet seats or wiping down tables at a fast food place
  • Gum/Mints/Cough Drops - any of these will do
  • Cell Phone & Wallet are obvious
  • Business Cards
  • Handkerchief or Tissues
  • Feminine Product of some sort
That's about it in my purse.  I don't like having 45 items rattling around in my purse weighing me down.  It causes me serious frustration when I try to find one item which has been buried under the other 44 items. 

I realize that this is not a comprehensive list of important items for everyone's bag.
If you have little people around, it is always prudent to carry some wipes and a diaper just in case.  Or if you are out with dogs a lot, then a plastic sack should be on hand.

What is a necessity in your purse?

  1. My first aid kit is essential to have in my purse! On several occasions it has come in handy not only for my kids, but for others as well:)

  2. Wallet, phone, at least three toy cars, chapstick, kleenex, pen, bandaids, neosporin, and a gift certificate for a 1lb. box of See's Candies.
