Back to School (Mom Style) – My Purse Essentials

It’s back to school time! I love the organization that comes with this time of year. I always get an urge to clean everything out and give everything a fresh look; especially my purse. It’s amazing how fast it gets filled with junk. Moms always get to hold everyone elses “stuff”, am I right? Whenever I take the time to clean it out, I make sure to leave these key essentials:

  1. Black Tote – this new purse is the perfect size! It holds everything but doesn’t feel gigantic.
  2. Wallet – obviously. I’ve had this one for about a year now and I LOVE it. It holds my huge stash of cards and I love that it zips up so I don’t have to worry about anything falling out.
  3. Day Planner – I just picked up this one and love the pretty cover.
  4. Portable Charger – Because I take photos all of the time, I can never be without my phone. This portable charger is my saving grace. It has 3 USB ports and depending on the phone, can give you 5-7 full charges.
  5. Small Bag – I stuff all of my loose ends in here and the compartments come in very handy.
  6. Powder – my all time fave.
  7. Chapstick – I’m constantly trying new kinds but always go back to this one.
  8. Pain Reliever – I get headaches a lot so I always like to be prepared.
  9. Wet Wipes – my kids hands get so grimy and I’m always needing these.
  10. Lip Gloss – this is a fan fave and I love it!
  11. Pen – because you ALWAYS need a pen. Love this black and copper one.
  12. Sunglasses – I wear these almost everyday. They go with everything!
  13. Shout Wipes – I’m messy, what can I say.
  14. Lotion – this is the only lotion that actually keeps my hands moisturized.
  15. Breath Mints – these are my FAVORITE!
