This past week, I was honored when a single dad asked me to help give his daughter advice on what to put in her new purse. As I started thinking about what I have in my purse, I thought I’d ask my Facebook friends to chime in with their thoughts, and boy did they step up to the plate! (Thank you ladies!)
Here is the list we came up with:
Lipstick / Chapstick
A mirror – in case spinach gets stuck in your teeth
Id (so the good Samaritan who finds your purse if it’s lost can return it to you)
A ‘hankie’ (an old fashioned handkerchief mentioned a few times)
Wallet / Coin Purse
Cash (always have some cash on hand for emergencies)
Personal toiletry items
Miniature Swiss Army knife (but not at school)
Brush or comb
Trial size of your favorite perfume
Small mending kit with a few safety pins
I suggested checking the local drug store for small, travel size, portions of toiletry items so the purse doesn’t get loaded down with too much stuff!
Ladies, what are you ‘must have’ items to include on the list? Did we miss anything? If so, hop over to my Facebook page to share your thoughts. We want to make sure we have this young lady setup and ready to go!
