14 Items Every Lady Should Have In Her Handbag



Girls, you know that your purse is almost like a best friend. You also know that there are some things you should always carry in your purse.

You go nowhere without that purse and when you don’t have it on you, you feel like a part of you is missing.

These things are more than just an accessory, they’re basically a lifeline.

And what’s in that purse is pretty much essential for everyday living.

Here are 14 things you should always carry in your purse:

A compact mirror

Always bring a mirror on the go! You never know when you might need it to reapply your lipstick or to get that piece of food out from between your two front teeth!

A pocket-size hand sanitiser

Our hands come in contact with so many things each day. Whether your handling cash or opening a door, there’s germs everywhere! And most of us forget this too easily and then touch our face with our dirty hands!

Pocket-size tissues

Sneezing is the worst, especially because most of the time sneezes are like surprise attacks. You never know when the next one is coming, so always have tissues on hand to clean up the aftermath of that surprise sneeze.

Your ID

You definitely don’t want to get caught on the road without your ID (especially if you ever happen to get pulled over.) Always make sure to check your purse for this before you go anywhere!

A portable phone charger

Portable phone chargers can feel like literal life savers in times of need. There’s nothing worse than having your phone die with no way of charging it until you get back home at the end of the night!

A small snack

A girl’s gotta eat. Trust me, come mid-afternoon, you will be happy you threw that snack in your purse on the way out the door!

A mini hair brush

Wind and hair is a horrible combination. And all too often, we find ourselves taking one step out the door and having our luscious locks blown all over our faces. Make sure you have a brush on hand to get everything back in order.


Panadol is a must

If you’ve ever dealt with a headache, or a migraine…or cramps…or back pain or any other pains that us ladies have to deal with from time to time, you will be wishing you had panadol to help you out!

Baby wipes

Baby wipes are super gentle on skin and great for removing make-up or just giving our faces a cool refresher!

Hand lotion

You’ll be needing this, especially in the colder months when our hands are subjected to the single digit weather.

Gum or mints

Fresh breath is a must, and coffee breath doesn’t smell good on anyone. So always be prepared with gum or mints on hand.

A mini make-up bag

Have a mini make-up bag in your purse to keep all your necessities in one place! It’s too easy to lose that lip gloss in your sea of items swimming around that big, bottomless purse of yours.

Blotting wipes

Blotting wipes are amazing. Always be ready for your next plan of action with a clean, fresh face, especially when you don’t have time to wash your face and reapply your makeup. Goodbye, oily face!

Hair tie and bobby pins

We all know the struggle that comes along with not having a hair tie when you desperately need one. Always keep a few extra in your purse. You’ll be super glad you did next time you’re looking for one
