Hello everyone! Hope everyone’s having a great time! I know 23 things sounds a lot, but trust me they do not take up a lot of space as we would assume! We all love to carry different types of bags..some small, some big! whether you carry purses, slings, backpacks or whatever you prefer, the contents inside these bags are very important to us.
WHAT??? 23 things to carry???
Also there are different approaches to what we should carry in our purse depending on where we are going and as each one of us is unique and would love to have our own set of contents, so as such a few of the items may not work for you. However never overload your bag with stuffs to carry around neither carry few items and leave a few thinking they might not be required!
Below I have created a list of 23 things I carry along with me all the time! Hope this list is helpful for you too!
I know carrying a wallet is not practical for a lot of people but I carry a small one and make sure it contains a little cash and all my cards (Credit cards, Debit cards, gift cards etc…). This way I have everything in my reach,
BUS/TRAIN TRAVEL CARDS
If you use public transport, do not forget to keep your Bus/Train card/pass in your handbag. Though this can be carried in the wallet itself, or separately. Now a days there are different mobile covers that can accommodate a few card and cash too!
KEYS – HOUSE KEYS &/or CAR KEYS
The name says it all. Keep your keys.
PEN & NOTEBOOK
Though now a days we have a lot of gadgets to take care of the writing stuff, but its always good to carry a pen along. Do carry a pocket size notebook as it comes handy to quickly write in stuffs.
BASIC MEDICATION – BAND-AID & ASPIRIN
Shoe bites! Headache! Backache – you do not want these to ruin your day. Carry few band-aids and Aspirin or whatever pain medicine you prefer and take.
Use of issues can be multipurpose. Whether it is to clean your hands or freshen up your face or what not. Always carry a travel size tissue pack with you.
Always carry a few to freshen up your breath.
Goes without saying! This can make you smell fresh at anytime of the day.
HAIRCLIPS/TIC TAC & HAIRBANDS
Do carry a few hairbands & Tic Tac/Bobby pins in your purse. If you feel like tying your hair up at any point, you have all the items with you.
Safety pins can come in handy in a lot of situations. Make sure to keep a few.
Keep a travel size bottle in your purse. This will definitely come handy when your skin feels a little rough and needs a little care.
TAMPONS OR PADS
Even if it is not that time of the month, keep one or two.
This is an essential piece. You would never want your phone’s battery to run dry.
Keep a small pack of biscuits, or banana bread or a protein bar, or a fruit, what ever you like and you will thank yourself for carrying one!.
This can come in handy whether you want to wipe your face, or apply lipstick etc.
I do not leave house without my chapstick. They are such an essential part of my purse.
There is nothing wrong in wanting germ free clean hands. Keep one in your purse.
PAIR OF EARRINGS
Well if you left home in a hurry and forgot to wear your earrings, this can be a savior.
Carry a small makeup kit, keep your lip gloss, kajal, Lipstick, compact or any other item you would use for your makeup in this.
Definitely keep this one as this is required to keep your hair look the way you want.
Carry these if you don’t want to hear someone coughing around or someone talking over phone…
Umbrella can save you from harmful UV rays and it can also protect from rain. Carry a small size umbrella in your bag.
Always carry along a water bottle with you.
I love bags with lots of pockets where I can properly keep all my stuff without having to search for things when I need them. And I have to clean my purse every now and then and repack as my bag gets filled with receipts, earrings or things I dont need always but still carry. However the above 23 things are always a part of my kit wherever I go.
Also as a Tip, please carry all these things in small/travel size so that they don’t make your bag feel very very heavy!
Do you think there are other items that you carry in your bag and I should know of them too! Please mention those in the comments.
