Go Bags

Hello my friends!

I just wanted to stop in and say hellooooooo! Hello!!! I’m in the middle of a crazy busy month, but I wanted to share something with you that makes running out the door on hectic mornings just a little easier. I hate having things scattered on the bottom of my bags, so a while back I started shoving all my odds and ends into little pouches so I could just grab them and find what I wanted. Then I started actually adding things that would be helpful and organizing my little pouch. I call them “go bags” because they have all of the essentials that I need for the day and in case of little emergencies.

I have about 4 or 5 of these, and it makes it easier for me to be ready to go. I just grab my wallet, a little go bag, and stuff them in whatever bag I’m using for the day and I can be on my way.

Without further ado… one of my little go bags! This one is a bare essentials one.

So you can see, it’s a small bag (I believe this is from a Clinique sample from a billion years ago) and it will fit in just about all my bags.

In this one I have:

  1. A pen
  2. Travel size Aleve
  3. Eye drops
  4. A sample of Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume
  5. Weleda Lotion
  6. Mickey Mouse Bandaids in assorted sizes
  7. Listerine Strips
  8. Purell
  9. Lip Balm
  10. Bobby Pins
  11. Hair ties
  12. Safety pins (not pictured)

I have a couple that include more things like: (1) a travel tooth brush and tooth paste, (2) scissors, (3) travel sewing kit, (4) antiseptic cream, (5) a spare pair of underwear, and (6) lady things like pads/tampons. ┬áDuring the spring, when I have hay fever I also add allergy pills and tissues. One or two of my bags also includes waterproof eyeliner and a pink lipstick, but since I rarely wear makeup these items don’t make it into most go bags.

Do any of you guys do this too? What do you keep in your purse?
