A girl and her purse is one relationship that lasts a lifetime. Purses may come and go but the essence of a purse, what’s inside, is a girl’s lifeline. My husband is afraid to look in my purse for something because he knows if he messes up the order or forgets to put something back in, he’s going to be in BIG trouble!
The bigger the purse, the more stuff we put inside. No matter the size of my purse though, I always have five essentials inside. I’m sharing the 5 things I always have on hand in my purse in today’s post!
What’s In My Purse: 5 Things I Always Have on Hand
I can’t do anything without my wallet! It holds my credit cards, driver’s license, business cards, safety pins, and band-aid’s. My wallet even acts as a clutch in a pinch and I can put my iPhone in there and slide a key into the change zipper.
I’m a stickler for fresh breath. When I’m going into a meeting, or about to catch up with a friend over coffee, I always pop a mint or start chewing some gum. There’s no excuse for bad breath and it’s always in my purse.
Instant Stain Remover
I am the clumsiest person on the planet and drop and spill things on myself frequently. It’s embarrassing showing up somewhere with a coffee stain on your blouse! So I always have an instant stain remover in my purse, my blouse may be a little wet when I show up, but at least the stain is gone and the blouse dries, leaving me looking presentable.
Ponytail Holders/Bobby Pins
Raise your hand if there’s been a hot day or you’re working out and you needed a ponytail holder and there’s not a one in sight?! There are also the times when you’re rocking a chic high pony and the ponytail holder breaks. I always keep at least two ponytail holders and a handful of bobby pins in my purse because you never really know when you’re going to have a hair emergency.
The #1 thing in a girl’s purse is her tampons. We ladies always need to be prepared and have the necessary essentials when Flo comes to town. Even if I’m not on my period, I keep tampons in my purse because you never know when a friend or fellow female is going to need one!
My go-to tampons are the U by Kotex® Click® Tampon. Kotex Click is the #1 compact tampon that absorbs like a full-size. So it fits easily in your smallest bag while providing full coverage, up to 100% leak-free! It’s so comfortable, absorbent, and takes the worry out of leaks. This product is on the newer side, replacing the U by Kotex Security Tampons, so be sure to keep an eye out for them on your next trip to Walmart! If you have the same coverage in half the size, why not replace the full-size tampons!
You can transition to the new Kotex Click by picking them up in-store at Walmart (if you’re comfortable), or you can add them to your Walmart Online Pickup & Delivery order for a quick and easy contact-free experience!

Too many times I’ve needed an instant stain remover and never have one on hand. I seriously need to always keep one on hand! xoxo, Sarah

Love this! I always have some on hand. Definitely need to add stain remover though! That’s a good one!
Interesting post! Hand sanitizers and masks have become a staple in my bag since the pandemic.
These are all essential items for me as well. I would just add on lip balm because my lips tend to get so dry!
