Hey all! I’m Angie, one of Collin’s HIP sidekicks! 😊 As many of you likley know, Collin recently shared a post on “What’s Really in Her Purse!“… and now it’s my turn! Although my purse is no where near as exciting as Collin’s, I have quite the collection of “stuff” tucked away in my bag. Here’s a rundown of the items that I usually have in my purse…
I am starting to worry about getting crows feet and well, sunglasses are a necessity! I try hard to protect my eyes from both the sun and from squinting due to the sun. Just trying to keep myself looking as young as possible. My favorite pair are Oliver Peoples, they are super cute and go with everything! I scored an awesome deal on these by purchasing them gently used over on Thredup.com.
First Aid Items
My daughter has extremely sensitive ears and loud noise makes her quite upset. Therefore, I tend to carry a bag of ear plugs in my purse, that way I am always prepared!
I always have something to eat in my purse. I don’t want to be HANGRY (or have my kiddos be hangry) and it can happen in a matter of seconds. I most often carry a mixture of Mixed Nuts and Chocolate Chips. My favorite are the Kirkland brand Unsalted Mixed Nuts from Costco and Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Chips. I also LOVE Quest bars – my favorite is the Cookie & Cream flavor. YUM!
Gum and Mints
Gotta have fresh breath! I love Wintergreen Lifesavers and could eat these by the handful. I also always have gum. I don’t have a favorite brand, but I always purchase my gum on Amazon as part of a Subscribe & Save deal – this is definitely the best way to save money on gum without any effort.
I am a little bit of a germaphobe so I always have hand sanitizer with me. I currently have Purell, but my favorite are the Bath & Body Works PocketBac Sanitizers. They smell so good and leave my hands feeling moisturized and not dry.
This is a must have for me as my hands get dry and chapped! I really like Ahava Hand Cream. I received this cream as a gift and it absolutely ROCKS! My hands recover so quickly with this cream.
Lip Balm or Chapstick
Dry lips? Not for me! I carry a couple of different brands in my purse – Nivea Smoothness Lip Balm works awesome and can usually be picked up for a pretty great price with a coupon! I also really like L’Occitane Lip Balm. I received this as a gift and it’s amazing! If you’re gonna splurge on a lip balm, this would be a great one to do it on.
Pens and Scissors
I always have a list when I am out shopping, so a pen helps me stay on track with what I am needing to accomplish/ pick-up at the store. I also always carry scissors so I am ready for a coupon!
Have a friend who seems to always get food stuck in their teeth? That’s me. 😳 I always carry floss for that “just in case” moment. I really like Oral-B Glide Floss.
I can’t stand a rough fingernail, so I make sure to keep my clippers handy. Tweezerman are my favorite – but anything to get rid of a rough edge works for me!
