This is essential for you to carry wherever you go specially if you’re an outdoor person. After all hygiene standards define you inside out.
Notebook and Pen
Hey! Don’t miss out on this. This is sure to save you from a lot of uncalled hassle.
Tampon or Pad
If you’re a girl, then you can definitely relate with emergency situations. Be fully packed specially when you know your date’s around the corner.
Breath Mints or Mint Gum
Hours of starvation or maybe lethargy? Let’s make sure, you leave a bad impression on no one you encounter.
Pamper yourself wherever you are and wherever you go. Remember be YOUR first priority!
These are a lifesaver if you pop a button or a seam. Also, a small one can pinch-hit for a necklace clasp if yours suddenly breaks.

These absorbent little sheets are an elegant way to wipe away excess shine, oil, or even sweat on your brow, cheeks, and upper lip.
USB flash drive
Keep this on your keychain to back up important documents when you’re traveling or giving a presentation out of the office.
Battery case or portable cellphone charger
A decent portable cellphone charger that will charge your battery a couple of times over can be had for as little as $20. A good battery case will cost you at least double that, but you won’t have to deal with loose cables and an extra item floating around in your purse.
Who in this era can survive without a phone? We all are undoubtedly dependent on our phones, from booking a cab to taking important calls. So make sure your phone’s battery doesn’t drain out. This is an investment for all you mates.
Not only will this save you from going through the day with a coffee stain on your shirt, it may also help a friend or colleague (or boss!) who’ll be forever grateful.
Cash and cards!
This is the most important reminder. As long as you are having surplus, you are not bound to any limitations from filling in your carts to unplanned hangouts. Enjoy!
