Why are there so many things in my purse? It's not like I'm carrying around all of these items on a regular basis, but yet here they are, just hanging out in my bag. I do use them all the time, but it seems like an overkill to be carrying around so much at once. For example:
A must-have for every woman, lipstick has a multitude of uses. It's a fashion accessory and way to express yourself, feel confident and sexy, empowered. Lipstick is also great for making you look younger (or older).
You may be wondering why women carry more than one tube of lipstick around with them at all times, but it's really not that hard to understand once you put yourself in their shoes: they always want to look good!
There's a good chance you're carrying around tampons. If you're a woman, you probably have a few in your purse right now.
Tampons are much more likely to be found in the pockets or purses of women than men, but why? First off, tampons are a necessity when it comes to menstruation—there's no way around that one for half the population! Menstruation happens regularly and at inconvenient times; there's no way most people would leave home without their choice of sanitary protection. Tampons are also small enough to fit into any bag or purse without taking up too much space (and they don't cost very much either). In fact, many people will keep some on hand even if they aren’t actively using them just because they come in handy so often!
Women need a mirror in their purse for several reasons.
Hand sanitizer/lotion: You know that feeling when you want to clean your hands and there's no soap or hand sanitizer? Or when you're on a plane, unable to get up and wash your hands without disturbing the person sitting next to you? Or when it's cold outside and all you want is some hand cream (and maybe some socks)?
Hand sanitizers are compact, convenient, and come in different scents so they're great for travel. They can also be used as moisturizers if your skin is dry or flaky—just apply a little bit before going out into the cold! Hand lotion works similarly; however, it tends to be more moisturizing than its alcohol-filled counterpart because it has glycerin in it as well.
You may be wondering what types of medicine are in your purse. If you’re anything like me, you have a variety of things that might help if I happen to get sick. Whether it be cold medicine or allergy pills, I always have at least one type of medication on hand because they come in handy when I need them most (like when I’m out shopping and get an allergy attack).
Aside from the standard cold/allergy/pain relievers found in many purses, there's also usually some extra stuff lying around: band-aids, dental floss and even aspirin can sometimes find their way into my purse. In fact, it's not unusual for me to keep more than one kind of medication in my bag at all times—I'm lucky enough never to get sick but if I did end up with a cold or something worse one day then having multiple options would definitely come in handy!
And finally, don't forget about Tylenol—it's always good practice not only for yourself but also for others who may need it as well!
Your hair tie is a multipurpose tool that can keep your hair out of your face when you're on the go. It's also useful for securing ponytails, braids, buns and other hairstyles that require more than one bobby pin or the strength of a wind tunnel (don't ask how we know).
Useful? Yes. But they take up so much room! Don't worry—you can use an elastic band as a low-maintenance alternative to hair ties. They don't cost much (or anything) and are easier to keep track of because they're smaller than traditional hair ties.
The most common item I see in women's purses is the humble pair of earbuds. Most any lady will have at least one pair of these slim little neon-colored wonders tucked away in her bag, and they come with a good reason: it's a great way to listen to music or just about anything else. If you're stuck in traffic on your way home from work, cozying up with a few podcasts or an audiobook can help keep you entertained until you reach your destination (and if you're bored while sitting at work, they're perfect for that too).
If you want to listen to something stored on your phone or computer but don't feel like wearing headphones, headphones can also be used as an alternative solution. Just plug them into the device so that it plays through the speakers built into each earbud instead of coming directly out of its speaker—it's much less awkward than having people wonder why there's music coming from inside their cubicle walls!
Why do you carry a phone charger with you?
We've all been there: Your phone is dying and you have an important meeting or date coming up. You need to find someplace to charge it—fast! But where? Most of us forget our chargers at home, so we're forced to borrow one from a friend or acquaintance. That's why they're always in the same place every time—it means they'll be there when we need them most!
As far as safety blankets go, this is one of my favorites because it actually has practical uses in addition to providing comfort and security.
There are a few reasons why women carry so many sunglasses. The first is that they need protection from the sun, and their eyes are especially sensitive to it. Women often have lighter or fairer skin than men and a lot of our eye makeup is light, so we need additional protection to help protect our eyes from getting damaged by the sun's rays. Second, as we age, it gets harder for us to see in bright sunlight because there is less pigment in our corneas (the transparent front part of your eyeball). Lastly, most people find having an accessory like a pair of sunglasses adds interest and style to an outfit when you wear them indoors or at night-time events where other accessories may not be appropriate (think black tie parties).
It all depends on how much time you spend outside during daylight hours and how much exposure your eyes have had over the years whether or not you should wear sunglasses regularly. If you're concerned about developing macular degeneration or cataracts later in life then wearing sunglasses now could help prevent these diseases from affecting your vision later down the road by reducing UV exposure today!
It is a mystery, a great one. And this superficial behavior isn't just limited to women. Men do it too! But most of them don't realize it, because they're more comfortable with their masculinity and the idea that they don't need all those girly accoutrements.
But here's some news: you do need them—you just don't know it yet!
I have a lot of stuff in my purse, but I don't usually carry everything at once. I usually just have some makeup and a few extra hair ties with me when I go out. It's really annoying when you need something from your bag and can't find it because everything is just thrown in there haphazardly!
