Have you ever wanted to switch up your purse for the day (maybe to match an outfit), but didn’t because it’s such as hassle to transfer all of your must-have items from one purse to the other? I’m guilty of this and usually end up carrying the same purse day-in and day-out for months (ok, maybe years!)
I finally had an A-HA moment: why not create a purse essentials kit, aka “Mom Essentials Kit” that contains all of your daily necessities? This little bag could just be tossed into whichever purse you feel like carrying for the day and you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything. Why didn’t I think of this sooner??
If you’re like me, you probably have more than a few little makeup bags laying around that you got as a freebie with a cosmetics or fragrance purchase. I found this super-cute bag in my closet — I have no idea where it came from, but it is perfect for my purse essentials kit!
So what are the purse essentials in my “Mom Essentials Kit?”
My number one must-have is ChapStick and I especially LOVE the new ChapStick Total Hydration. This is probably the one item I can’t be without anywhere! It’s 100% natural and it instantly smooths and moisturizes, so my lips always feel amazing. There’s actually a Lip Care aisle at Walmart — awesome!
I also don’t like to be caught without an Advil Tablet Vial, because you never know when a headache will strike and as a mom, I can’t afford to be out of commission! I choose Advil because they are the original round tablets providing safe, effective pain relief for over 25 years. This travel sized Advil Tablet Vial is the perfect size for my purse essentials kit — it’s about the same size as the ChapStick!
I’ve always considered myself to be pretty lucky when it comes to cold and flu season. However, kids are always getting into who-knows-what, and I actually got a bit run-down last year. This winter I’m going to be prepared and keep Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables on hand for extra immune support! (Also located in the Lip Care aisle, so you don’t have to wander around if you want to stock up your Mom Essentials Kit!)
Other items that are incredibly useful (and I always regret if I don’t have them) are: hair ties, fingernail clippers, toothbrush & toothpaste, adhesive bandages, hand sanitizer, tissues, and a compact hair brush.
