I’m a bag lady. Like in the sense that I’m Hermione and I did an undetectable extension charm on my purse. I have everything. My parents raised me under the motto “Be prepared.” I take this literally and shove everything I can into my purse because I never want to be without something.

I don’t care if my bag is really heavy and has weighed down one side of my body to the point my shoulders are a little off-balance. I’m the go-to friend if anyone needs something because I probably have it in my handbag. Maybe it’s excessive, but I call it good planning.

Aside from having your wallet and keys, I’ve picked out some absolute essentials for your purse/backpack/messenger bag/whatever you use to transport stuff.

What are your handbag must-haves? Anything unusual in yours? Tell me in the comments!

    The one about carrying some candy is good because it’ll prevent you buying stuff when you’re hungry which can save money. I’d also recommend bottled water if you’re carrying medication with you if you’re like me and can’t swallow pills without some water :)

    I have the hand sanitizer, sunglasses, pens, gum, and headphones, however I take the band aids a step further: I have a mini first aid kit. I made it using small snack container and it has tweezers, gauze pads, band aids, and spray disinfectant. It has come in handy a number of times, not just for myself but for friends too!

    I also carry a schedule/planner, so I can always check my availability and write down plans with my friends before I forget them. Also, chapstick!
