- Folding Knife
Opinel No. 5
- Hand Wipes
Clinell Antibacterial Wipes
Thomas just wrote up an article about properly cleaning cuts; good reason to carry these, besides the whole my-hands-are-a-mess-and-I-need-to-eat thing of course.
- Lip Balm
L’Occitane Shea Butter Delightful Rose
Again, should probably take this out of my purse since I never use it.
- Chap Stick
Nivea Original Care
Should never take this out of my purse since I constantly use it.
- Coin Purse
Elephant Coin Purse
Stolen from Thomas’ grandmother (who has a bunch of them & didn’t mind). Carry a few points cards in it, some change, and a bill or two.
- Folding Shopping Bag
Wilko Folding Shopping Bag
Folding shopping bags have been a godsend in my life since moving to the UK. Carry two in my bag at all times, and that’s pretty much all I use. They get dirty or the tab rips off – no problem, throw out and replace since they’re so cheap. But better than having to pay for bags every time & obviously what am I going to do with all those plastic bags (that usually have holes in them. Love these.
