What I keep in my work bag

What I keep in my work bag- all the essentials I keep in my desk at work to handle all the little things that come up during the day.

Although I sometimes wish I was a full time blogger, I do in fact have a “read job.” I am a the head of the reference department at a decent sized public library. I love my job, and I enjoy going to work every day, but it always seems like I forget to bring something.

Because of this, I put together a little work essentials kit.  This kit stays at work and contains all those little things you just might need during the course of a day or would just make the day go that much better.

What I keep in my work bag- all the essentials I keep in my desk at work to handle all the little things that come up during the day.

My kit contains
Face palette
Lipstick
Chapstick
Hair ties
Bobby pins (These are my favorite brand)
Deodorant
Tampons (or pads)
Panty liners
Hand cream
OTC pain medication

You may also want-
Pads
Rubbing alchohol
First aid supplies
Makeup

I also try to keep a few snacks in my desk to munch on when my blood sugar gets low or in case I forgot to bring something.

What is great about these little kits is that fit nicely into a desk drawer or a locker so you can leave it at work and have a little more peace of mind knowing it is there. Of course none of the items mentioned are required and your kit should only contain items that you would need within your work day. Don’t waste your time, money, and space, filling it with anything you might need, its not worth it. Just stick with the essentials that you’ve found yourself needing in the past.

As far as bags are concerned, check around your home and see what you have. I used  a freebie from an Victoria’s Secret order but anything will work as long as it fits in your locker or desk.  No locker or desk? This could also be kept in the car as an all around emergency kit, just make sure the lipstick doesn’t melt.

    Hi Amanda,
    I have a question about ‘The Day Planner’. Where did you find the one with three columns for the day? I went to Target and I only seen the daily with two columns. Just curious, maybe it’s not available in my area. Love the blog! Thanks!

      Great question. That is the day designer for blue sky large daily planner. It came out in July with a July-June calendar so they may not have one right now. Keep an eye out next June. The 3 column is my favorite layout but that’s the only planner I know that does it!
