Things every girl should have in her bag

Safety Pins or Sewing Kit

When your blouse is missing a button, it is the perfect excuse to buy another blouse. However, if it is the middle of the day and you are still at work, what do you use for the next some hours? In this situation, safety pin and mini sewing kit will be the rescue method you need.

A Pen

A journal and pen or pencil, because as much as we love typing on our phones, there are some things we just need to physically write down.


We’re all constantly leaving around our hair ties and clips, so some extras in our bags are a godsend (plus a mini brush or a comb if you use one often).

Hand sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is one of the things every woman should have in her bag because it helps protect her and anyone she meets and makes a contact with from spreading terrible germs. Sometimes, when you go to the grocery store, you are able to grab a cart, which has been used a lot of times and which never wiped down.


Cash, in case she winds up somewhere that doesn’t take a card, stored separately from her wallet in case she lost that and needs to get home.


A book or Kindle, iPad or portable gaming console, so we’re never bored.

Makeup things

A small vanity pouch with our everyday makeup essentials and a pocket mirror, of course.

Pads or tampons

Pads or tampons, that too, enough to share – in case we’re ever caught off guard or for a friend in need.


By keeping a travel sized bottle of aspirin I’m able to banish that headache to some far away place and get back to the important things I needed to do.


I like to keep a healthy snack like a granola bar, trail mix, or some kind of a power bar in my bag for those days when I’m stuck in traffic or end up at the DMV longer than I expected. Having something to snack on prevents me from attacking McDonald’s later on.

Wet wipes

There is nothing is worse than having an oily face right before taking a picture or meeting someone after a whole day of running around. You try to wipe your face but the greasy oil is still there, not only does it look unattractive but the impact it has on your mood is worse. There is no better way to avoid that situation than having wet wipes.


I am a complete music lover, so it’s important for me to keep a pair of headphones in my bag for those long rides on the train or long walks to my next destination. I tend to think that music is entertaining and fun, and it makes the time pass a lot faster.

Pepper spray

Pepper spray is a must. As you hear today there are lots of stalking and harassment case taking place. So in order to protect yourself, one must have paper spray.
