I'll be honest, I don't carry a purse/handbag. I use to carry one that was so heavy that it hurt my back. It wasn't worth it. Now I leave the house with whatever fits in my pockets.
I do have a purse for times I don't have pockets.
What is in it?
Hydrocortazone (I'm allergic)
That's what's in a make-up bag. I have my wallet and a reusable bag thrown in my purse too.
I also have a bug out bag in my closet that I throw in my car when we go on road trips.
What should be in your bag?
All of the above &
matches/lighter (even if you don't smoke)
Bobby pins/hair tye
Dental stuff (they make disposable brushes)
Some sort of snack
That's what I would suggest keeping in your bag and stuff I have in my bug out bag. I found this fun little homemade survival-kit. I'm thinking I need to make one of these...or 2.
I almost forgot that yesterdays blog topic was my favorite quote and I find this fitting.
The biggest lie I tell myself is, "I don't have to write it down, I'll remember it"
That's my favorite....right now. It changes often.
