I wasn't sure what to call this post because the term emergency seems a bit extreme when referring to some of these items, but I did a google search and similar things came up so my handbag emergency kit it is!
Bandaids: This seems pretty obvious but I don't know how many times I've been out and needed a bandaid for something-- usually an awful blister!
Neosporin: I use this stuff all the time. I'm not clumsy or prone to accidents, I'm just a bit paranoid about any exposed irritated/broken skin getting infected.
Anti-bacterial: I actually get a little anxious if I don't have this stuff with me. It's the first thing I use when I get back in my car after being just about anywhere. Plus it's good to have when you're out to eat.
Tide To-Go Pen: I can't be the only person who spills on me, right?
Wet Ones: These are great for a lot of things-- they work well for getting deodorant or dirt off of clothing!
Lip Balm: If I'm honest I usually have about six of these thrown in my bag, but I like to keep one in my little emergency pouch just in case, because it's the worst feeling when your lips are horribly chapped and you don't have any chapstick or lip balm!
Concealer: I don't even wear concealer every single day, but I learned my lesson the hard way. A while back at an old job I had a spot on face that was irritated. I didn't think it was that bad and I asked one of my co-workers who was in the back room with me if it was okay-- assuming she would say something along the lines of, "Yeah, you look fine." Instead she told me it looked really bad! I kind of wish I was making this up, because regardless of how my face looked, I found the whole thing incredibly rude. Back to the point- I now always keep concealer with me, just in case!
I realized I forgot an essential: Advil!
What are some items you like to keep with you at all times?
