The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Angie at Echoes of Laughter.
Recently I was cleaning out my purse and I found a whole assortment of things at the bottom that I wanted to have with me in case of an ’emergency’, but just not quite that messy. I decided that I had to organize these little things in a much better way. I began by browsing the local dollar store for some ideas and I found this adorable little fabric cosmetic bag that was perfect for the job.
With Mother’s Day and the end of the school year just around the corner, I thought I would share with you all the things that could make a great ‘Mom’s little emergency kit’. This would be such an awesome gift to put together for the busy moms in your life. I keep my little emergency kit in the glove box in my car or in my purse, depending on the weather and where I am going.
Included in the ‘Mom’s Little Emergency Kit’ are:
- make up remover cloth
- hand sanitizer gel
- Imodium quick dissolve tablets
- Alka Seltzer
- Ice cold pain relief gel packet
- Halls cough drops
- Tide stain pen
- sewing kit
- clear nail polish
- nail clippers
- emery board
- hair elastic
- bobby pins
- safety pins
- Vaseline lip balm
- shoe cleaning cloth
Of course, the kit can be personalized to include any items that you might need in addition to the list I have shared.
All of my ‘must have’ items fit together nicely in the fabric cosmetic bag I picked up at the dollar store. I feel much better knowing that everything I might need is packaged together nicely in one zippered pouch. No more digging around in the bottom of my purse!
How about you? Do you have a ‘little emergency kit’ that you keep with you? What are some of your must-have items?
Wishing you a wonderful week!
