This, my friends, is not the way it should be done. Stock your purse with the following necessities so you can keep calm and organized, no matter what life throws in your direction.
Keep your pits in tip-top shape with some backup deodorant — particularly if your brand begins to fail after 12 hours and you need to make it to an impromptu happy hour.
Need to re-do your makeup? Spilled guacamole on your pants? Baby wipes should help, at least a little bit.
Paper cuts? Heel blisters? Accidental stabbing while whittling a radish rose for a dinner party? Mistakes happen — and when they do, you'll definitely want some Nexcare bandages to keep your cuts clean and protected.
Germs are everywhere so make sure you have some sanitizer on hand when you don’t have access to soap and water.
Your phone is a lifeline, so keep that bad boy charged up while you're on the go with a portable charger.
I once went on a trip abroad with no cash. What on earth was I thinking? Cash is a necessary commodity if you find yourself in a pinch, so don't leave home without it in your purse.
It's not cool to ask a date if you have spinach in your teeth. Take responsibility for your appearance by carrying a compact mirror and checking on the status of your nostrils and lipstick for yourself, like the independent woman that you are.
Wait, do you not have a "corn on the cob Friday"? No matter. Everyone needs the tooth-rescuing power of dental floss from time to time.
You don't exactly look sophisticated when you're walking around chomping on gum. Get you some diminutive, sexy mints. You will look so much more grown up.
No one will ever know that three buttons have already fallen off of your shirt.
Giant sunglasses are a must-have for sun protection, and they can take any outfit to the next level.
If you are going to bring one makeup item in your purse, make it a bombshell shade of lipstick. A quick swipe is all you need to fool anyone into thinking you tried really hard.
Hair spray can certainly build volume, but it also soaks up excess oil at the end of a long day. Pair the spray with a couple of swagged-out hair ties, and your casual updo will look stunning.
It's definitely time for me to reorganize my purse with all of these items — better write it in my day planner.
