Men! Please don’t leave. Although this post may sound like it’s just for girls, these are essentials. You might not be able to put all 5 in your back pocket, but you can fit 1 or 2 in!
I used to walk around with a bag that I could fit everything in but the kitchen sink. So, last year I decided to save my back and shoulder by only buying small bags. I suggest you do the same! It has made my life so much more simple and I don’t have to search in my bag for something I might not have. I know exactly what is in my bag!
To help everyone, I have come up with the 5 things you must have in your bag.
Sometimes, I forget to put a new pack of pocket tissues in my bag. Every time that happens, I regret it so much. Especially living in Korea. For some reason, some public toilets don’t have toilet tissue. They have toilet tissue holders, but no toilet rolls. The places in that building usually provide toilet paper.
Also, you never know when you are going to sneeze…
Buy these cute Kakao friends tissues!
- Mints or Gum.
(If your bag is big enough, toothbrush and toothpaste)
Sometimes, you eat something smelly but you can’t go home to brush your teeth. When I moved to Korea, I noticed that all the Korean teachers would brush their teeth after eating lunch. So, I started to do it too. I regret nothing!
I guess Korean food uses more garlic and it has very strong flavours and scents, so it lingers in your mouth.
- Hand Sanitizer.
I feel like this one doesn’t need an explanation, but just in case…
When there is no soap around, you can still kill germs if you have hand sanitizer. If you are like me, and you hate ‘pull’ doors because you have to use your hand, this should be the first thing you put in your bag!
If you hate the smell of rubbing alcohol, buy a flavoured one!
- Stain remover.
Hello, my name is Dina. My favourite colour to wear is white, and I am a master at spilling food on myself.
Even if you are usually good at keeping food off your front, I would carry one round, just in case.
Here is the stain remover spray I always have in my bag!
I know that this isn’t really small, but when you are out for the whole day and have plans in the evening, you will be so happy that you have perfume or fragrance in your bag.
If you have a Travalo, you are all set! I lost mine, so I just purchased a mini version of my favourite perfume!
If you are in Korea, buy your Travalo here!
I hope you have enjoyed this post!
