There are already a couple of posts on this site talking about things that we should carry in our purses. They are very practical lists and I have to commend the authors for writing them. However, I thought that it wouldn’t hurt to come up with a list of 9 more things that you might want to have in your purse. The items mentioned in my list are some of the items that weren’t mentioned in the existing lists.
1. Water bottle
If you want to develop the habit of drinking water, then it certainly would help to carry a reusable water bottle in your purse. Having your own reusable bottle helps your budget and saves the environment because you don’t have to keep buying mineral water. Water bottles come in different volumes so you can choose which size best suits your needs. Water bottles also have different styles so you can showcase your personality.
2. Personal alarm/Pepper spray
If you want to have some form of self-defense on your person, then you should carry a personal alarm or pepper spray in your purse. You might want to get these items in a design that comes with a keychain. This allows for easy access in times of emergency.
3. Reusable grocery bag
Join in on the effort to save the environment by bringing your own reusable grocery bag. You can buy them for cheap online, in supermarkets, and various physical stores. There are many designs and materials to choose from so you don’t have to worry about remaining stylish.
