A Working Girl’s Survival Kit

Came up with a quick list of things that would be handy in your office in a little bag, or in your purse (although carrying everything is too much for me).

Bolded are what I actually keep in the office and/or carry on me but here’s the list in its entirety.

  • Toothbrush + Floss
  • Lip Balm
  • Mints/Gum
  • Aspirin
  • Hand Lotion
  • Mirror
  • Tampons/Pads/Other
  • Hair Elastics
  • Tissues
  • Stain Remover (Tide To Go pen)
  • Eyedrops
  • Stamps
  • Pad + Pen
  • Static Remover (Dryer sheet)
  • Emery Board + Nail Clipper + Clear Polish + Polish Remover
  • Hair Brush
  • Deodorant
  • Lint Remover
  • Sewing/Mending Kit
  • Shoe shine wipes
  • Band-aids

Can you think of any other handy things to add to this list?
