I don’t know about you all, but my purse used to get ridiculously heavy! I would ask myself, what am I carrying? Rocks?! (Though I might have had a rock or 2 in my purse at some point, thanks to the kiddo!) My heavy purse would even put a strain on my shoulder at times. As a busy mom running around NYC I simply got tired of carrying a heavy purse. It was time to carry just the essentials! Today I want to share with you all my purse essentials.
I used to carry a heavy wallet. That alone made up for a lot of the weight in my bag. Did I really need to carry all those store cards? And coupons I never use, but should… Buying this wallet/phone case has been the BEST! I only carry what I need. Sometimes if I’m running a quick errand, I’ll clip my keys to this wallet and run out the door. Phone case and wallet in 1? Yes please! Trust me, it’s a must have!
If you have kids, then this is a must. Take a little makeup bag and stuff it with a few toys. It’ll come in handy whenever the kiddo gets bored or your phone battery dies. Trust me on this one! You’ll thank me later!
Hand sanitizer! Need I say more? I also love carrying an energy or granola bar. Comes in handy when the hungry monster strikes!
The weather is getting colder and colder. Well, actually it’s not. The weather has been flipping and flopping! I for one enjoy the abnormally warm days! However, regardless of the weather my hands need to stay moisturized, so hand cream is an essential! Love carrying a mirror to make sure my makeup hasn’t melted off and for touch ups of course! I don’t carry my whole makeup bag, because I don’t want all of my makeup making my bag heavier than it should be! I just usually bring my lipstick for touch ups, and maybe eyeliner if I have it on. Asides from that, I like to carry a rollerball of my favorite perfume. Want to make sure I am always smelling good!
ChapStick Total Hydration is definitely a purse essential! I love that it’s 100% Natural! It instantly smooths and moisturizes my lips! I always carry an Advil Tablet Vial with me as well. Nothing’s stronger, longer lasting or better on your tough aches and pains than Advil, and nothing works on more pains than Advil (among OTC pain relievers). And we can’t forget Centrum VitaMints! New Centrum VitaMints are adult multivitamins with a refreshingly minty taste you can take/enjoy any time of day with or without food or water.
I purchased the ChapStick Total Hydration, Advil Tablet Vial and Centrum VitaMints at my local Walmart in Secaucus, NJ. The products were pretty much all near each other which made it easy to shop! The Chapsticks I was looking for were in an end cap, but still very easy to find!
Obsessed with ChapStick Total Hydration!
Ok, so those are pretty much most of my purse essentials. Well the most important at least!
