I’ve always been big on being prepared for anything.  If I am packing for a trip I need to pack anything and everything that I might need or want, I’d rather be prepared then out of something I’d really like or even need.

And when it comes to shopping for groceries and other household goods, I’d much rather have bulk items around so I don’t run out or if on a whim I want to make this or that, I am more likely to have it on hand not have to run to the store to get the item or think of something else.

I’m just a prepared type of girl and my purse is no exception of that rule.  I give you what you need in your purse to be prepared!

What You Need In Your Purse To Be Prepared

A Good Purse

First and foremost, you need a good purse.  One that you find cute and stylish and yet is functional.  I found one the other day at Walmart and it’s so cute and totally will fit my camera too, which is a must.  Since I am not a fan of my cellphone camera at all.

A Wallet

Again it’s not rocket science, but make sure you have your wallet in your purse that has your important stuff like your payment card and license.  You gotta have that license on date night if you want an adult beverage and you get carded.  No one wants to be turned away from having that little treat.

ChapStick Total Hydration

You gotta have your ChapStick in your purse, especially again on date night.  No one wants to deal with dry cracked lips when it comes to getting close to your partner.  So carry ChapStick Total Hydration in purse.

Nail Kit

Make sure to find a cute, yet functional nail care kit.  Keep them in your purse to take care of those broken nails so you don’t keep playing with it and making it much worse.  I found this super cute kit at WalMart and knew it needed to get in my purse now.


Find one or those little packages of tissues to store in your purse as well. Don’t let those sniffles get you down.


For me I need to my big girl camera in my purse, so finding a purse that will fit it is essential to me as well.  I don’t care for the photos my phone takes, so lugging around my camera is what I prefer.

Is there other Pfizer products you prefer, check them out by visiting Pfizer and look at all the amazing purse essentials from others.  I’d love to hear all about them and who knows it may be something that I realize I need to keep in my purse too!

  • Love love LOVE that purse! Can’t believe you found it at WalMart! Who would have thought? They sure have become much more stylish than they used to be. I wonder if it would fit my new slim laptop? It is the exact same color!

    • Right? That is kind of what I thought, like wow what a find! And the wallet is just as cute too. Amazing.
      Uhm, I am not sure that it would fit the laptop, but it might. If not I have another bag I got on amazon that is so cute and a laptop bag.

  • Jodi @the noise of boys

    1st I love the purse, too! Plus I kid you not the need for chapstick is a MUST right now! So dry!

    • Thank you, I was pretty thrilled with my find on it.
      And yes both my husband and I’s lips are getting cracked and yucky now.

  • Maggie C

    I haven’t seen those Chapstick yet, I will have to pick them up for my own stocking. 😉 I hope to get a date night soon so I better be prepared!

    • I love these chapsticks, I started to use them today and wow love!

  • How about money!?! You don’t expect the guys to always pay, do you?! 😉

    • lol that is kind of a given in the wallet, Scott. I stated the license cause hello I want that drink. 😉 But yes my husband always pays, so I just didn’t think about it – since it’s all the same account. lol

  • RoseSiders

    I LOVE your purse. So cute. I need a fun bright color (I have two: black and navy lol). Those new Chapsticks are amaaaaazing.

    • Thank you! I have a thing for bright happy purses. I rarely get the darker ones anymore. There was a really pretty teal one too that I was tempted by.

  • Chapstick and Advil are a definite, though I haven’t seen that version of Chapstick before. I’d be afraid to buy it because I’m always losing it. Other than that, I always keep feminine hygiene products, oil blotting sheets or powder, mascara, eyeshadow.

    • I do powder all the time otherwise I get really shiny. I should have included that too, but didn’t happen lol I really never need to reapply my mascara or eyeshadow, so really don’t need those on a regular basis. This version of ChapStick is fun! You’d like it I am sure.

    • Haha! I just realized I have that same inner pink flowery zip bag. I know where you got it!! 🙂

      • well that is awesome, cause I sure don’t remember lol

  • You are definitely prepared. That Chapstick looks cool too, it is my first time seeing it like that.

    • I realize that I usually have quite a bit more in my purse then what I showcased in this post. oops lol

  • aprilaakre

    We don’t get to on date nights but I always carry tylenol because I get frequent headaches also. I always carry kleenex the kids always seem to need one and lip balm or lip gloss. Your purse is so pretty.

    • Thanks April! I have gotten a lot of compliments on the purse, which is nice 🙂
