Is your handbag a cluttered mess? Sort it out! You should only carry necessities and leave the rest at home.
1 Make sure you have your wallet. In it should be everything you need, such as money, credit cards, store cards, bus pass, ID etc. Usually items such as money, etc. are best stored in a wallet, although keychains with a small wallet or billfold attached also work well.
2 Take your mobile phone with you in your bag or your pocket (assuming you want to carry it around with you.
3 Remember your keys. For your house, car, locker, garage…they are essential and you want to be able to find them easily, so sometimes getting a large or bright keychain helps.

5 Carry mints or chewing gum at all times. You never know when you might need fresh breath!
6 Be prepared for allergy season or just a sad movie with some tissues.
7 Keep one maxi-pad or tampon in case of emergencies.
8 Have some aspirin on hand for those headaches.
9 Have a small flash light – in case you can’t see or find your way late at night. Some lights will clip on to your keychain.
10 Think about carrying a Swiss Army Knife or jacknife. Knives just aren’t for the boys any more. Some (like Miss A Kits) are made just for women and include attachments like tweezers, a mini perfume vial, a bottle opener, etc. It’s great for opening packages. (Beware, though, about bringing these through metal detectors and the like.)
11 Grab a pen and a small notepad. Since you never know when you’ll need to get someone’s email or phone number…
