Successful women carry a lot of important things in their bags. The saying that “Behind every successful woman is a fabulous handbag” couldn’t be more accurate sometimes. Strong and independent women are always on the go: they wake up early in the morning; they exercise regularly; and they try to fit all the important things in their lives into their busy schedule. Their bags become one of the most important allies in helping them reach all their goals. A lot of women tend to carry plenty of unwanted and unnecessary stuff in their purses. If you are one of them, don’t worry, it’s never too late to change your habits. Here are 7 important things successful women have in their purse:
1 Notebook and Pen
Every successful woman should have a fancy little notebook and a smart pen in her handbag. You never know when you’ll get a brilliant idea or when you’ll have to write down an important phone number. It’s always best to be prepared and by the way, there are so many cute handmade diaries and notebooks that you can choose from!
2 Hand Sanitizer
You meet a lot of people every day and you have a lot of important things to do, so you don’t have time to get sick. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer so you can a have a chance to kill germs before they can affect you.
3 Business Cards
A successful woman always carries a few of her business cards in her purse. You never know whom you are going to meet, whom you could shake hands with today or when a great opportunity for your career might come up, so it’s always best to be prepared. Keep your business cards crisp and clean and get a business card holder that complements your personal style.
4 Portable Charger
Always carry a portable charger of some sort in your handbag because you never know when you might need to charge your phone, your computer or your tablet. It’s always best to have a phone or a tablet handy so you can answer all those e-mails that you receive on a daily basis.
5 A Healthy Snack
If you want to be successful in your field then you need to always be ready to perform at your best. You can do that by exercising regularly, getting enough sleep and eating healthy. You should always carry a healthy snack in your bag, like a power bar, an apple or a banana and a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
6 Make up Essentials
Try to be very choosy about your make up essentials. Your bag should contain a lipstick or a lip gloss, some mascara, some wet wipes, a sunscreen lotion, a comb and a mirror and that’s it. You don’t need to carry all the items on your dressing table with you to look gorgeous.
The saying that “A smile can be the shortest distance between two people” couldn’t be more true. Do yourself a favor and prevent a potential embarrassing moment by carrying some dental floss with you. Also, make sure to keep your breath minty by having some mints or some gum in your purse too.
As women, we tend to carry a lot of things in our purses every day and not all of them are necessary. What do you usually carry in your bag? Do you use all those things? What should we find in the perfect bag? Do tell!
