All in all, a woman’s bag is Aladdin’s lamp; it can fulfill almost any wish. And sure enough, a woman will feel sad if she loses her bag any day. Are you a teenager, a working woman, or a homemaker? Are you wondering what essential things you should keep in your bag? Well, here is a list.
The most important thing to carry in your bag is cash. You cannot buy everything using digital transactions or cards. Even though they are prevalent today, you still need cash and loose change. So have a beautiful wallet to hold all your money in. You don’t have to carry a large amount. But something that can help you in an emergency or trouble.
A hand sanitizer
Imagine you have to go get some cash from the ATM. You know how dirty it is, and several people use it. Now, a sanitizer can help you wipe down your hands and make them germ-free after using the machine. Therefore, always carry hand sanitizer with you.
If you are taking medicines for health issues, carry them. A working or traveling woman should ensure all her medicines are with her. A bag is the best place to keep them, as you will not forget to take them. If you are not on medication, then you should carry basic medicines. In your bag, you should always have medicines for headaches, stomachaches, ibuprofen, Tylenol, and so on. If you take supplements, carry them too. Get a pill organizer and put all your medicines in it. It will ensure the pills are safe and organized and help you take them on time, too. Also, put band-aids in the pill organizer.
Mini sewing kit and safety pins
There are times when you look down and find a button missing. Or you see a small hole in your outfit. If you are at work, it is embarrassing. Also, you cannot go and buy a new outfit at that moment. The alternative? Securing it with safety pins or sewing it up. Have a mini sewing kit in your bag to keep such moments from turning into a nightmare.
If you are an avid reader, carry your kindle or a book in your bag. It will help pass the time when traveling or commuting from work to home. It is better than mindlessly scrolling on social media.
Credit and identity cards
Both are essential. You can keep your credit and identity cards in the same wallet as your cash. Or use a separate one. But always carry at least two identity cards and credit/debit cards. You never know when you might need them.
If not for yourself, then for other women out there. Tampons, pads, menstrual cups—whatever you use, always have one in your bag. It keeps you prepared while also providing help to other women.
Yes, it may sound random, but it helps. For example, there are times when you are at work but plans to hang out later happen. You cannot change your outfit, but you can change your look by adding or reducing jewelry. So, always carry an extra pair of earrings and a few other pieces. It is also helpful when you lose an earring.
Even if you carry a food bag, carrying a few snacks in your handbag is best. It can be nuts, chocolates, protein bars, tea or coffee sachets, and more. You can grab and eat anything on the go to replenish your energy.
Safety first! Pepper spray can come in handy. So, always carry it in your bag.
